Tis the Season
Oh My Gosh! Who snuck that full-moon weekend in there without warning me?!? Lordy, this past weekend was tough! And, to make it so much MORE fun … we have officially entered the next round of the (never-ending) ‘flu season’.
Yesterday is an achy, feverish, nauseated, coughing, sniffling BLUR for me, as my MANDATORY flu shot did nothing to keep me protected. But – unlike what (feels like) EVERY other member of my community does – I suffered at home, in bed alone without calling an ambulance or visiting the ER. I guess I figure, if nothing else – the last 36 hours is a good weight-loss technique, as we enter the holiday season, and all that food. And – I’m sleeping and napping like I’m ready for the nursing home!
So – work in the studio is getting off to a slow start this week. I did work on a few quick and easy ornaments late last week; A trinket sized rough blank in pink and blues; Did another coffin bottle-slumping – I like the textured clear bottles – and I LOVE this bottle – how cool! Final slumped some trinket bowls and the (second) Amethyst & Peridot spoon rest; I completed a requested green and purple blank, but wasn’t pleased with it (I have it against my window/door, which is the only way the colors showed off) … so after cutting it up into little pieces – sweating like a pig, as my fever broke, at the saw – I’ve got it running through the production kiln again, this time with more whispy-white/clear. We’ll see; And a couple of quick pendants to add to our collection for the upcoming craft show.
Did some of my favorite internet shopping … glass supplies coming my way, all the way from North Carolina! $50 freight charge … ooooh those are gonna be some BIG boxes! Shopping – a better cure for what ails ‘ya than any medicine. That’s it for now. My ibuprofen must be wearing off, or I’m working up to a hot flash … either way, must be time for another nap!
