We inadvertently had another hiatus sneak up on us, so thank you for noticing. And thank you for welcoming us back. And thank you for enjoying this Overindulgent Self Portrait — which I’ve also been lagging on. Thank you in advance for being thrilled to see two in the month of December. It would have been three, but the huppo visited me this afternoon.
October and November both turned out to be busy months for us, personally. We had a week in the mountains of Tennessee. Dollissa started working at her job full time again. Halloween happened, of course. I had to suddenly begin devoting my time to commissions both new and ones I just needed to finish by the end of the year. Yay, good time management. We became more involved in community efforts in Covington, too. Saxon is getting a diploma. Billy has been already dealing with the Winter Blues. Erica has been writing grants. Even Tonyana has been busy very often — for the first time ever, she had to skip a month of Tarotscopes! Our apologies for leaving you rudderless in a frightening sea of the unknown. What else happened? Oh, there was another trip to the mountains, only this time in Virginia. I’m probably forgetting a dozen other things, but it’s been busy!
And now we are bracing ourselves for holiday busy times, but intend to do a little more for you, you beautiful readers, than we did last month. This month, I mean. Life put the NO in November for us.
I did intend to have this overindulgent self portrait up on Thanksgiving Day itself, but I was barely near the internet on that day. Also, I hadn’t even colored it yet. So instead, think of this as a photo snapshot of our time spent in gluttonous pursuits, even though in reality Dollissa and I were hundreds of miles apart. In spirit, this was our holiday.
