We’re into Autumn now, cooler nights and turning trees. The days are still warm, but you can feel the change.

Columbus State does a Day of Service each year, and this time, I got to help work on a house for Habitat for Humanity. Hard hat, hammer, and all.

According to our Newsletter, over 800 volunteers went to 83 sites in Columbus. A good day for all.

More teaching as the same really ramps up, with two classes tomorrow. One for teachers and on for students. Looking forward to a couple conferences in October. And…

I got the Grant for Archival things!!! Still some paperwork to do, but other than that… !!! All the excitement!

At home, working on creative things. Learning about drawing and comics. Getting ready for a combo Inktober and NaNoWriMo. Hoping to make a graphic novel of sorts over the next few months, or at least a few introductory issues. I have some characters to explore.

Been trying to finish up the photos, but it’s a lot. Maybe this weekend.

In books… Listened to Cursed by Benedict Jacka, and Storm Front by Jim Butcher, Karamo by Karamo Brown, Naturally Tan by Tan France. Now I’m on The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein because it’s narrated by Matthew Mercer.

Spent my morning helping a dear friend move to a new house. Then finally finished fixing my dryer. Yesterday, I laid out my rows for my skirt project, and tonight, I’ll be setting up my new sewing machine to put it all together. First, though, all the laundry ever.

I still have a lot of projects in the works: framing art prints, painting minis and a dice tower, and writing/blogging projects, and drawing projects. All of which is making me wish I had a proper space to do them.

Case in point, laying out skirt rows on an afghan and yoga mat on my living room floor:

Yes, the skirt will be a ridiculous riot of colors and patterns.

Work is going well. I worked a lot on my paper this week, and some file organization. And I led a class through career search/exploration websites. I’m giving another class a library tour this coming week. I’ve got one conference this month and one next month. A busy, busy summer.

Looking forward to my eye appointment and getting a proper prescription soon. And August, forever looking forward to August. So excited for all the travel and things!

In books, I finished Creativity, Inc. and Vinas Solamnus, and listened to Audible Original – You Do You: Proud to be Fabulous, and now I’m on to Ender’s Game Alive, a radio play version of the book. It’s really well done. In media, I finally got to see Into the Spiderverse thanks to Netflix. I really liked it, but the warnings are very true, lots of flashy ‘lights,’ so beware. I’ve also been playing Wizard’s Unite, the new Harry Potter AR game, and it’s fun, though time consuming if you let it be.

Edit: Set up a bigger table:
