I worked today for a few hours, because I started a task yesterday and really wanted to keep going. It's actually something I started a long time ago, but I got side-tracked on several other more urgent things. So I'm going to try to do a few hours a day or a full day maybe three days a week until I get it done. I set up a database to track inventory, and I'm taking pictures of all the artwork in the Gallery so there is an identifier for each to help us in the tracking process. It is really confusing if the tag of identification gets lost or separated from the item, so this should help us a lot. The trouble is that it's a dull, time consuming process. One of those that will be really, really good when it is up-to-date.
I woke up some time around 3:00 this morning with the thought that I left the "sandwich board" sign out at the gallery last night. It's actually not a big deal because you can leave all kinds of things out without worrying about theft. We leave wooden furniture outside, people leave garden/lawn furniture out. Bicycles rarely are stolen, and if you forget to lock the front door at night, not to worry. It just bugged me that I did so. Then, wouldn't you know it, I couldn't go back to sleep until about 5:30, and I was draggin' my booty all day long. I'm going to go to bed early tonight.
We haven't had any wildfires recently, thank goodness, but the forests are still closed. It is still very, very dry and dangerous out there. There is an interesting twist to this, and it is humorous in a sense. New Mexico allows no inside smoking in public places. So when people go to bars, they can't smoke inside. Well, now, they can't smoke outside, either!! Because of the extreme risk of fire, no grills can be used except for gas grills, no open flames of any kind, including any form of smoking are allowed. When smokers go outside and light up, they are arrested! And every week in the paper for several weeks now, there are six or eight who are arrested. Don't you think people would get it?? There are signs in all the stores and businesses in the area stating this policy, marquees beside the road make it very clear, citing smoking as an open flame. It's hard to go anywhere and not see it! And yet, every week, more people are arrested. All I can say is ... duh.
It's rerun season. All together, now ...... hisssssssssssss! Booooooooooooo! I don't watch a lot of TV, but that makes it no easier for me than for the couch potato! In fact, perhaps it's a little harder for me because since I like only a few shows, I see most episodes the first time around, so I literally have nothing to watch. I don't like "reality" shows, either, and there are so many of them on the air. Guess I'll be watching lotsa movies for the next few months! What are y'all going to do this summer while reruns are filling the air time? give me some good ideas!
I'm so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open, so I'm gonna hit the sack. Maybe tomorrow I'll have something exciting and keep you on the edge of your seats, but for tonight ... I'm cooked!
Night, all!! Yawnnnnnn.
