The oppressive heat wave has finally lifted leaving us with a week of true spring weather bliss! Obviously, Gato enjoys the mild weather and can now be found chilling in the sun porch, looking outside the screen door and being a lazy cat on the living room floor. Spring is actually here!

Spring Cleaning
Seeing as the upstate New York weather is finally cooperating, we’ve (non)officially started operation spring cleaning. This week, James was able to give the yard its first haircut of the year, the studio area has gone through a bit of a re-arrangment and the vacuum has been put to good use. While this may just sound like normal domestic house choirs, I like to think of it as indie studio maintenance. Required studio maintenance that’s sure to have a positive effect on all future released titles. Trust.

Shell Says
The nice weather has also inspired our very own Michelle to jump start her personal blog with a few new blogs. Not only does she give a detailed rundown of her personal journey to Ska Studios, but she also pulls back the velvet curtain on how we crafted those too awesome Dishwasher plushies. If you too are the crafty type and know how to work a needle, head over to her blog where you’ll find templates and instructions on how to make your very own Dish plushie. The end product is well worth the effort and blood loss.

Zipped Up
And that’s it for this mid-May edition of Good Morning Gato. Stay safe, be happy and I’ll see you next week.
