Surmounting Obstacles From Joe's!

Coffee is a large mocha with Ghirardelli chocolate and whipped cream, music is "Reach Out Touch Faith" by Depeche Mode on satellite radio, got about 1250 words written in the tools section and need to finish it today (it's targeted right now for 5000 words but needs to be cut a bit). Yep, the mocha and sat radio are the big clues--we're live from Joe's.

Started the morning at 7:00 by putting in another Art Institute slump load which included three pieces to ship to the new gallery in Maryland. Whoopsie Daisy. The order should have shipped Friday and was going to ship yesterday but when I went to pack it up I found I was short four pieces. Quickly put the load in the medium kiln and fused it yesterday before heading to ikebana. Hope to ship it this afternoon if it is cool enough. Otherwise tomorrow when I ship the order to the Art Institute. Also put one of the AI pieces in the medium kiln to repair a blip on the surface. I'll slump it late tonight so it will be ready to ship tomorrow.

Down to one color of circles to grind, but another shipment just came from WaterJet Design (they do my circle cutting for me) so I have another 6,000 or so to do. *sigh* My glass order from Bullseye is scheduled to be delivered Friday so much of the day will be taken up preparing a space and then unloading it. Looks like today will be writing from Joe's, tomorrow will be mostly writing and a little studio time, Thursday will be 50/50 and Friday will be all day studio. This weekend I need to make the last of the book projects so I can write them up for next week. All in all, plugging along, boringly busy. The pic at top right is the final orchid melt that cracked. It is another Niche reject, though I might cut it up and make a box out of it...
