It seems to be a little harder to keep up with the blogosphere since summer has arrived. Why would I want to shut myself inside to write a blog when I could be enjoying the sunshine and warm weather outside? We've had a lot of time off recently, and have most of August off as well. I've been able to visit friends & family, which has been very nice. I've also started making jewelry & painting more in my spare time, as I plan on trying to make some extra cash by selling these creations! It's great to be able to put my hands to something a little different than music, but each day that we're not playing shows I feel like I'm forgetting to do something or missing out on this pattern I've become accustomed to doing. I know though, that as soon as I start getting used to being home, we'll be starting up full-time again and I'll have to readjust back to living in a van & getting yelled at for letting the ice in the cooler melt and get gross. :) Life is good, especially when you get to spend everyday with your best friends and create music together.
