Yayyyy! My relays came today … and my production kiln is up and runnin’!
Isn’t that a beautiful sight!
These (x2) were the culprits … and there’s John with his fat hands replacing the relays in that tiny little crowded space – it was touch and go for a minute, but we did it!
Meanwhile, I’ve committed to knitting my grandfather another pair of felted slippers … He likes them and he’s not real subtle about DEMANDING a new pair just about every time I see him. But, at 86, he’s earned the right to be … lovingly snarly.
Had another great compliment today … we’ve been going to the post office and UPS store daily – lots of shipping going on. The staff at the UPS store today surprised me when I stopped in … ‘Ohh – it’s you! We spent a long time looking on-line at your stuff yesterday … it’s beautiful … all of it … just amazing … I especially loved the Christmas Bowl!’ (She really kept going on like that …) Then she called her co-worker over and started all over again! Wow … I don’t know if John paid them to go on like this, but … it was nice!
Took the boys Christmas (clothes) shopping today. Just can’t beat shopping with boys … we were done in less than an hour, blew a sizeable wad of money and off we went. No drama, no hesitancy or indecision … nice!
Had some romp time with Olivia, one of our Neo’s yesterday … she loves the snow! Gotta sniff at it and shove your face RIGHT in it! Then she wants hugs and kisses … silly girl!
