My neighbour in the garage where my studio lives was telling me that this year it's going to be cold in there. I am in an enclosed room with two heaters, both given to me to keep me warm. One is called the Microfurnace. So far it does the trick. I just got a clock for the studio and it has a temperature feature on it which will come in handy. When I left it was 14C/57F in there. About 7C/45F in the garage outside my door. So long as it stays above freezing my supplies will be ok. I sure hope it doesn't get to that. Anyway. I'm not cranky about the temperature situation. It's not a surprise and it's still warmer than an EZ UP canopy outside this time of year.

I have to work out how best to use that room. I need to efficiently lay out my space. I'll be crankier about it the more I use it because I'll know what just isn't right. I don't want any kind of delay, any learning curve. I just want to be in the work, you know? It's going to take some time, but at least I have started again.
