Month: October 2010

The list(s) …

The first round of our dichroic pendants and badge reels is in the production kiln for fire-polishing.  I am hopeful we’ll have some new finished pieces by the end of this week! The large blue blank is slumping in the coffin, along with a couple of wine bottles that needed texturing and the blue/yellow spoon rest.  The studio …

Everyone needs love …

Update for the full moon weekend:  I’m pretty sure I got to meet a few people that have strong beliefs regarding ‘Keeping It All in the Family’ (brother/sister –> husband/wife couples) … we didn’t actually discuss it, but … Yep, I’m pretty sure.  [Hark – is that a banjo I hear in the background???]  And – …

Viruses, Goblins, and Full Moons … oh my!

So, I’m making some progress – finally feel like my head is no longer sharing space with the virus tumor (Yes – it was a tumor, liquefying my brain – or so I whined to my co-workers on Sunday).  Anyway – the head is mine again – so the insomnia returns.  It’s ok … I’ll …

Charging my batteries …

While I don’t hold it against Maggie, the rubbing of the Buddha belly did NOT work for this past Sunday … (must have needed more candles.)   And – if I give it much thought, I’m already fearing this weekend, as I watch the moon get larger and larger … Scientifically proven or not, those of …

So maybe I won’t be quitting my ‘day job’ …

Had a great night in the E.D. last night.  It wasn’t crazy busy – but that’s not why.  I had a bunch of great patients – normal, pleasant, appreciative (ok – not all, but more than not) … how cool is that?  But wait – there’s more … I had a stroke patient who came …

Trying too hard … ???

So – I’m getting over my virus – slowly but surely – and maybe that’s why this week feels like it was less successful in the studio – my head is still ‘germy’ …  I’m shooting for a large (17 in) blank … have used almost 10 pounds of glass and I’m less than thrilled with the results.  …

Prioritizing the To-Do list …

Got through another weekend – or as I like to announce to my coworkers on Monday morning, as I leave the ER achy, tired and drained of most of my compassion … one weekend closer to retirement.  Which is funny to me, as that particular tunnel (retirement) is so long, I see no light or …

3 words … precious metal clays

Let me start with this … I’m sorry about the last rant … I really believe if I wanted to blog about public awareness, I’d … um, make a blog for that.  But there are times when cruelty and lack of human decency hit me right at the knees … and other times it’s just a really big …

Sleep must be over-rated …

At least that’s what my body is telling me … ok – I guess it’s my brain, but same effect.  My husband, who is snoring away, amazes me – we’ve spent SOME time analyzing my insomnia and his reply – in true male fashion – “I just turn my brain off and go to sleep.”  …

I’ve got the bug …

Well, actually I have TWO … the cold virus (BUG), as some lovely child felt compelled to sneeze into my face at work this weekend … But – what I’m talking about is I’ve reacquired the web design/developing bug … About 5 yrs ago, I got it, and taught myself enough to develop and run …
