Weekend Wrap-Up … There’s no place like home

Brutal weekend … high census, high acuity, lots of seniors [and their mandatory assessments], as well as kids and adults – and news flash:  flu season has struck AGAIN!!dshoes  It’s a personal thing I know, but … I will never understand people that prefer to have diarrhea in a public place (the ER), in front of strangers vs. suffering in the privacy of their own home.  So – a wonderful (and fitting) way for a nurse to celebrate Mother’s Day … cleaning up grown adults after stool incontinence … Fortunately, none of these folks gave me a gift (their flu) … Smile  But it’s over for another 5 days … and my aching back and tired feet are happy to be home.

Speaking of Mother’s day … I came home to feel loved and special, as DH and the kids gave me a great coffee mug (that I’m considering having tattooed on my forehead), beautiful flowers and dark chocolate (my favorite!). 


I made candles last week – in light, summer scents (Summer Punch, Lime Cooler, Coconut Lime, etc.) … The studio smells wonderful!  (Please disregard the mess & dust – the maid and I need to have a long talk …)  And, I’ve kept plugging away with my blanks, and threw in a future marble bowl – just for fun … Should have a coffin slump soon!

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
