No coffee, no music. It's a holiday today for the gainfully employed and the being-educated. For the lossfully, I mean *self* employed, it is just another workday, albeit with people underfoot. (After several minutes of struggling and swearing on the part of my non-coffee-drinking spouse the coffee has been wrestled into the coffeemaker and is brewing, and he wants you to know it.)
It's just another winter day here which makes it better than winter days most other places (it's 61 degrees and it isn't even 9:00 yet), but it is still grey. I am uninspired. Today I must slog through more studio cleaning. It continues somewhat ameliorated by the purchase of many clear plastic totes yesterday from shoebox size to 15 qt. Maybe if I have somewhere to contain all the "stuff" it won't spill out off the shelves and onto the floor. And maybe pigs will fly out of my butt. Gaw. I have to do it, I don't have to write any more about it.
By the scientific verdict of the judges ("Dave, what do you think?" "Oh I like that one best.") The winner of last week's name that series contest is... Andrea Land with "Cloudstone". Cloudstone is an excellent, simple, evocative name which is easily extended: I already have Cranberry Cloudstone, Caribbean Cloudstone, Aventurine Cloudstone, Tuscan Cloudstone and Flaming Cloudstone. So Andrea, which color you want? Thank you to everyone who pitched in and participated! (Oh, and Jody, thanks for putting me off the word "vitreous" forever with that eyeball thing...)
