Settling …

Back into routine after momentarily escaping.  While I didn’t take any good photos in paradise – I did catch this neat one about 20,000 feet above Florida … So now I’ve been returned to my spot in the world, to successfully keep all sorts of plates spinning in the air.  The plates that are struggling …

Christmas in July/August, Pup Watch and Oh …

Did I mention – I’M ON VACATION!  And – have you seen that MOON?   While we aren’t traveling anywhere – so it’s a working vacation – still, I’m HAPPY!  (THAT MOON!!!  Whew!  SOO glad I’m not in the ER right now …) I’m splitting time working on fused glass Christmas ornaments with Kumihimo, playing with …

Picasso/zentangle cabs etched … …

Off to work I go …

I’m continuing to produce here in the studio … dichro pieces, blanks, nursing stuff … Now it’s time to take a break and actually be a nurse, dang it! Hoping for a smooth weekend … silly, I know, but … it could happen! Still needs work – colored glass border and final fusing – but …
