Friday, a Beginning and an End

Coffee in the New Orleans mug, "The Girl With the Weight of the World in Her Hands" by the Indigo Girls on iTunes. Oh the humor of the iTunes randomizer this morning.

Home the night before last. The advance copy of my book and a box of chocolates from my publisher were waiting for me. I'm an author!

Yesterday hit the ground running with J's first day of kindergarten and the opening school assembly which lasted till 10:15. Back to the studio to get caught up on phone messages and emails that came in over the past couple of weeks. It was a short day for J so I picked her up at 1:00 and then we went up to see Jester...

Today is another catch-up day with a full firing scheduled as well as a delivery to the gallery I didn't get to yesterday and a camera-ready ad for the book to get in to Glass Patterns Quarterly. I'm glad I caught up on sleep over vacation--I am already burning through the reserves.

He was so sweet and so trusting--even at 6 weeks when his head was little enough to rest in my palm. For those of you who have seen the movie for Harry Potter 5, Padfoot is played by a deerhound in the train station...

Congrats on the book, Brenda. Isn't funny how life often brings the good with the bad? My heart is both ecstatic for you and your accomplishment and heavily sad for your loss.

Loss? Loss?

What's happened?
