There be some Red-Neckedness up in here …

Yep, it’s that time of year … DH is doing some housing-upkeep projects!  Gotta love him for it, but Jeesh!  He’s power-washing decks WHILE refinishing the kitchen/den floors.  This means I have a grill and patio set in my driveway and kitchen… Read More

But HE Started It!

OH!!!  It is SOO DH’s fault … He sent a de-funk Craig’s List item that promised a new storage rack/work station in my COE-90 designated work area.  HE emailed the no-good listing to me.  Now I WANT one!  Shelves for my frits,… Read More

I had a post …

All ready to go, heavy on the WWU, but … I’ll talk about what’s going on in my studio instead:  Spoon rests, owls and renovating … Oh my!  I’m wrapping up my spoon rests!  12 down and 13 more to go!  But… Read More

L.A.M. –

Life After Maggie … is tougher than I was prepared for.  I didn’t realize I’d be grieving this much.  And it hits me at strange times throughout the day/night.  But, I haven’t cried today, so I feel like I’m advancing through the… Read More

It’s all coming together …

I love this frame of mind … I wish I could bottle it!  Positive energy, lots of creativity and productivity … Life is good! DH performed emergent, life-saving ‘surgery’ on Dear Old Grinder.  She’s back!  And with a new 1 inch coarse… Read More

The list(s) …

The first round of our dichroic pendants and badge reels is in the production kiln for fire-polishing.  I am hopeful we’ll have some new finished pieces by the end of this week! The large blue blank is slumping in the coffin, along with a couple… Read More

Viruses, Goblins, and Full Moons … oh my!

So, I’m making some progress – finally feel like my head is no longer sharing space with the virus tumor (Yes – it was a tumor, liquefying my brain – or so I whined to my co-workers on Sunday).  Anyway – the… Read More

Charging my batteries …

While I don’t hold it against Maggie, the rubbing of the Buddha belly did NOT work for this past Sunday … (must have needed more candles.)   And – if I give it much thought, I’m already fearing this weekend, as I watch… Read More
