No voiceover work this weekend! I have projects I can do – but no looming deadlines, so I was able to actually not record this weekend. No juicy auditions on any of the P2P sites, so seriously, I didn’t have to chill down the studio at all for 3 whole days.
Did I use the time wisely? Well, I guess that depends on your point of view. I took down the screens from the front windows. Hosed them down. Vacuumed and then scrubbed the window sills. Went to the gym a couple of times. Longs brisk walks. Laundry. And a daily trip over to a friend’s house to feed and play with her cat.
Picked about 50 pounds of figs and prepared them a couple of ways for a pool party. First I sliced the nice ripe ones in about 1/4 inch slices and drizzled them with Balsamic. Ah, yummy. Then I reserved a bag of slightly less ripe figs to cut in half and sprinkle with soy sauce for the grill. And finally, I just brought a large bag of fresh figs to hand out as party favors. While some people simply can’t abide fresh figs, the folks at this party loved them and they disappeared from the platters.
Hit Home Depot and bought a new BBQ – still plenty of time to cook outside and dine al fresco here in San Diego. I finished a book! Raced over to my mom’s after she called to tell me that the sprinklers had been on for more than an hour. My fault. I had set them for 10 hours instead of 10 minutes.
So, I had a good weekend. But I get back to work tomorrow. Things get back to “normal” in the morning with my usual coffee group from 7 to 8 AM. Yeah, I know, that doesn’t sound like work, but I am, after all, a full-time professional voice talent. I have time for morning coffee, but I may work late in the evening to meet a client’s deadline.
