Countdown and three kilns …
Click, click, click … go my kilns (happy sigh – ) ALONG with the other 886 COUNTDOWNS ticking away. Deep breath!
Review (since my last post):
1) We have babies! Momma Iz finally got serious Friday night, and we have 7 new Neo babies in the house (DH has the photos, and I’m so far behind on email correspondence – don’t even get me started!) … [Don’t look for pics here – I told you, DH has them!]
2) WWU – it was busy; No one died under my watch; Legal blood draws keep finding their way to us; Crummy (cancer) diagnoses in the ER will forever and always piss me off (make me hurt); It’s over for another 180 hours (give or take).
3 kilns running (and will continue – for a while). Currently, I have decal-mania in the coffin kiln, combined with more spoon rests and bottle-slump-fest 2013.
In the last week-ish, I have ‘created’ 27 slumped bottles/bottle bowls. Next up, DH will sandblast. Which has me thinking about SO many other sandblasting ideas and techniques … but, deep breath, it will hold until it’s time (the right time) …
I’m taking photos of items for the shops (abstract dichro badge reels):
Later: I have the DARN SANE meeting (in about 9-ish [A.M.] hours). More studio time, more puppy time, more twin/family time;
I’m 36 hours away from my (temporary) 4th job shift =art gallery shop worker (for the next two weeks);
I’m 5 days away from the next art show/weekend nursing tour;
13 days away from our oldest child graduating from COLLEGE (have I mentioned I am so stinkin’ proud of her?!?);
23 days away from Christmas 1 – for the twins – to celebrate, honor, spark creativity and confirm love (– all while finding/giving that ONE special gift that makes the year!)
29 days away from a New Year (=new page, chapter, opportunity);
38 days away from my next planned ‘weight loss’ procedure;
Christmas 2 to follow shortly there-after (with Martha Stewart-esque-ness = Clean/sparkling home and great food/gifts/family time).
And a few other deadlines/daily duties to meet – like Momma and the babies (day 3 and we’re all doing great!); meal planning/prep (Mama’s Kitchen – it is always open); adult living (bill paying, mail/email correspondence); regular care of my 2 and 4 legged family; and – a little bit of sleep here-and-there … [SIGH…]
Did I mention I have three kilns running?
OH YEAH – I could also say (in 5 hours) that I have been smoke-free for the last THREE months! (Or 12 weeks, 6 days and 19 hours … but that’s a bit anal …)
