Coffee in the New York skyline mug, "Grand Central Station" by Mary Chapin Carpenter on iTunes, five more projects written last week, edited and sent off yesterday. That's 50% of the projects done and 15% of the Basics with 1 month and 2 weeks before the entire manuscript is due. So I'm on schedule for the week! That may not seem like much as it is only 8:30 am on Monday, but I have already ground all the little orange circles; washed, rinsed, dried, and put away all the tiniest circles of all the colors; washed, rinsed, dried, and put away all the lime green circles; finished grinding the load of platters for the Art Institute and put it in to slump.
Later today I will cut the first load of sushi sets, grind another color of circles, and grind another set of platters to slump for the Art Institute. Before then I will prepare an order to ship to a new gallery in Maryland and go to ikebana. The bulk of the day will be spent writing. I hope. Tomorrow and Wednesday are both scheduled as Joe's days--off-site writing days so I should be able to get on top of the writing due this week. I don't know what that writing is yet, but I hope to get caught up on it anyway.
Above right, another piece for the book which did not make the cut as a submission for Niche.
