Magic (more of the new Springsteen album)

Coffee in the Atlanta skyline mug (go Braves!), "Livin' In the Future" by Bruce Springsteen on iTunes--I LOVE this new album! Carpenter on-site: check. Clean-up crew from my friend the landscaper onsite: check. Rudy with bobcat and dumptruck on-site: uh, no. I guess two out of three ain't bad.

The French doors are in and trimmed out. The windows (formerly where the doors are now) have been moved and trimmed out. An exhaust fan (actually designed as an attic exhaust fan for 2400 sq ft) is being installed into a former window location (shown at right). The kiln-room-to-be will be seriously vented! Water is on, gas is on, electricity proceeds apace. Fence goes up first thing next week and then deck and ramp to the kiln room follow. Might need to consider moving soon.

It's not raining, but it was last night and today looks to remain gray and drear. Got to find the energy somewhere to both work and manage the activities of the J who does not have school today or Monday (evidently her school still celebrates the arrival of Columbus on southern shores and the subsequent mortality of a large percentage of the indigenous population to syphilis and other diseases and the enslavement of many of the remaining peoples... need to keep up with the PC, people).

Normally I don't announce any more songs on iTunes, but someone has been pleading for "her music" for the past ten minutes and I finally gave in. "Cherry Pie" by Warrant on iTunes. OK, not the most appropriate song for an almost-six-year old. Don't you love parent teacher conference days? I *might* get some work done today... then again...

Hey! How could I forget the most important news? The author copies of my book arrived yesterday at my in-laws! Those are the free copies I get for writing it. Next come the copies I ordered to sign and sell--they should arrive next week or early the following week so I'll be able to start shipping pre-orders!!!

Wait until your fourth or fifth book, when this all gets boring...

And they called ME insane! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha..."
