It's easy to underestimate.
Rain shut down the job I'm covering, so I had a whole afternoon to myself in Medford. In the rain. And cold.
Rainy, cold Medford is pretty damn...well, it's Medford in the cold rain. Figure it out.
So I took a shower and caught up on some paperwork. Read a book - Cold Iron by Stina Leicht; "blackpowder-and-socery", elves with magic and flintlocks fighting humans with ring-bayonets and 12-pound Napoleons and a fun read - and did some bloggage. Chatted with some friends via e-mail and FB.
Finally I ran out of entertainment so I sat down and did these;
This is "Kittehs o' War" for the Boy, and this
...is "Drachma the Cat God" for the Girl. HAD to be their beloved kittehs, of course. I had a buttload of these postcards and realized that the kiddos have NO interest in reading some sort of boring letter from me. My Bride I can write to...but the urchins? They love the cartoons.
So I taped the postcards together to draw the images and then took the tape off. I'll mail them tonight so next week the littles can put them together as jigsaw puzzles. A quick and fun little project and, hopefully, entertaining for them.
But now I'm done and bored again. I wonder if there's a bad movie on?
