Recently saw PBR (Professional Bull Riding) for the first time … My Golly! Those guys can handle some pain! It’s insane, what they endure in the name of making a living … But, we could all learn a thing or two from them. These guys ride with broken bones/bruised parts while being bucked, stomped on and stabbed at with horns.
And then there’s the 20-something in the ER … Medicated with enough narcotics to put down the BULL(!), let alone a person – and still whining. Nothing broken, no disease process found … WTH! Moving on …
Lost one of our few, precious trees during Saturday’s torrential storm. Came home Sunday morning to find this … We were very lucky she fell away from the pergola/pool. John ‘buried’ her today … R.I.P. Tree!
During my Monday morning walk-about in the yard, I discovered this! My trumpet vine is going to have it’s first ever bloom. There’s just this one cluster … But hey – you gotta start somewhere!
Studio news: This week I’m focusing on wrapping up my wind chimes, so I can move on to other projects. I’ve sold out of my current batch of dichroic badge reels, and have started making more, along with some pendants. And, I plan to do a bit more with dye-sub. My experiment worked – I was able to sublimate on art glass. Now to make more complex, fused pieces to sublimate! And here’s a marble coaster – coffee themed.
Finally got around to listing some bottles … I like these, but feel the need to ‘dress it up’ a bit more. I’m struggling with just how, though …
I’ll leave with a photo of Sophia, soaking up some morning sun … Love that face!!
