The calm before the storm …
So, the kids are officially on summer vacation. They’ve ALREADY started talk about things we should do, buy and partake in to ensure they’re properly entertained this Summer … Oy Vay! This started right after I asked them to remove the 80 pounds of back-packs and school papers from my counters, couches and stairs. At least they’re not bickering … YET!
After cooking/serving my heathens a healthy dinner, romping/playing ball with my four-legged brats and watering my garden … I promptly escaped to my studio. Knowing I needed time to refocus [yeah, that’s code for calming down, finding my ‘Zen-ness’, becoming maternal – or at least friendly …], DH left me alone.
I made some progress with my frit/mosaic load. Everything is drying for the next round. I’d like to get them in the coffin this coming week, but we’ll see. I made a Shamrock night light, cuz – I felt like it (and according to my grandmother, I’m Irish … no one else in the family knew that when I was growing up – WTH???); and, I grouted my ‘busier’ rose plate:
I also finally got the coffin loaded with my slump-run. We’ll see tomorrow how she turns out. [Fingers crossed for some nice bowls and spoon rests …]
But then – I had research time … Time to scour the internet and see what’s out there. I’m quickly becoming fascinated with sand-blasting. I think I’ve found some new supplies/equipment that I just can’t live without. But, you know – it’s just the research phase … the calm before the storm.
And I’ve got just one more weekend at work to get through (again – calm/storm) before I’m off for 12 days, AND take my glass classes. Who knows what kind of trouble will find me then?!?
