Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
This weekend, S and I drove up to Tomales Bay for a friend's birthday party at the Tomales Bay Oyster Company. It's a fun picnic area with grills where you can cook the local shellfish they sell. I had a blast and even tried a raw oyster for the first time -- let's just say that was an experience. :) (Sidenote: if you do end up going, it seemed like it was a wise decision to make a reservation well in advance. Yes, for a picnic table.)
On to this week! Last week was fairly lackluster (in which I spent most of the week recovering from my open studios), but I'm back and feeling much revived and excited to get back into the studio. So without further ado, this week's wishes:
Prepare my new painting series for its launch! After my open studios, I had something of a brain wave, and suddenly was bursting with new ideas. But that's all for nothing if I don't do anything with them, right? This is definitely the big goal for the week as I hope to be ready for launch by next Monday. I'm working through the Designed to Sell guide to creating and launching a product, which so far I really like. Have any of you used it, or have other great resources to share?
Thirty minutes exercise every day. Always a goal, not always accomplished. Let's do this!
Set aside one hour a day to work on my Python course. I began working my way through Learn Python The Hard Way after finishing a Codecademy course in Python and really enjoying it. My husband is a software engineer, so this goal is partly to be able to talk to him more fluently about his work, and partly to have a super left-brain project to work on. Sometimes after painting I like to work on something with a bit more rules!
Do you guys ever find you need mentally take a break from the type of work you do all day? What types of things do you do to exercise other parts of your brain?
Good luck with your goals this week!
