Coffee in the Washington D.C. mug (hello Barbara!), "Already Gone" by the Eagles on iTunes. I am waiting for my extreme fatigue to be over and chafing that it hasn't yet passed. Maybe this weekend will do it. How can I be THIS tired when I just had two weeks vacation? I must be getting old...
Looked at another potential studio space yesterday, very cute, very tiny. The lot the house is on is only 52 X 65 and there is enough room for a small garage on one side of the house... It's a VERY tiny house, probably too small for a studio, but so cute! And our ownership of it would qualify Jessie for a very desirable school district. Doesn't life get complicated with children? I like the Waldorf School so far, but there are some things that make me crazed (they always wear rain boots and hats when outside--even on sunny warm days, even in the shade, even when climbing trees) and the tuition is not insignificant.
But today is about the old studio, not the new one. I have been invaded by dust bunnies of the largest kind, so after I get the kilns loaded and firing, I am going to clean. I'm also going to find new homes for all those empty 5-lb frit jars! There are now 8 full garbage bags full of them. Enough is most emphatically enough.
This weekend is the Labor Day weekend and I wish I could say I am taking it all off, but I will need to fire every day. Yesterday ended up being all about life--Ikebana, groomer, ballet, teacher meetings, friend for dinner (he was tasty--just kidding!), volunteering for the PTA (how the heck did I do THAT?!), etc. Today will be shipping, firing, cleaning, finances, advertising, new camera (got to take a picture of the new lattice piece in Ocean on white) and more cleaning (twice as much cleaning as anything else). Ah the glamorous life of a full-time artist!
