it's a gray day, not too cold and raining steadily. I've been cleaning, reorganizing in the studio as i consider what next in the new piece. My studio faces north with nice big windows looking out to the gardens. There's an ancient crab apple tree just off the patio. it's a great place for the bird feeders. Today we had two new visitors at the suet feeders: a white breasted nuthatch and a red squirrel. There aren't many squirrels in our neighborhood. This is the first time i've seen one in the yard.
Unfortunately my studio access has come to a screeching halt as i discovered a leak in a window frame. This means there's a leak in the roof. Not a good thing. M will have to take the trim off the window to begin tracing the leak. Until he's done with all that goes with this mission, i can't work out there. Frustration, annoyance and dismay are the prevailing moods. if the issue is not eaily resolved, i will move a work wall and my machine into the dining room. Meanwhile i can catch up on computer work and maybe even clean the office. ugh. It's adisaster. This room collects all sorts of overflow.
