Coffee in the Denver skyline mug, "My Rights Versus Yours" by The New Pornographers on iTunes. Monday, Monday, Columbus Day. Started the day with coffee brought to me in bed. The Sprout and I have already made a pilgrimage to the new studio this morning and consulted with the electrician. The carpenters are at the big box store getting the lumber for the fence and the tree removal guys are... somewhere. They'll get here today and the two trees growing from under the foundation will go bye-bye. The plumber is due back from vacation and I expect to hear from him. Got to get a new hot water heater and plan for the sink and lap-grinder moves. It all comes together.
I have spent a lot of time over the few weeks on building logistics (if ever I get out of glass I could go into general contracting). Now it's time to plan the logistics of the move proper. I had set in my head that I wouldn't be able to move till mid December. But I am open for the next couple of weeks on the firing schedule, and the building prep is going on-schedule... Unfortunately, though I'd like to think about and plan it today, I don't think I'll get the peace and quiet. On the slate are the last fountain firing (still haven't gotten that one done), ikebana, drop off a piece to be drilled at Dixie Glasshoppers, take J to the zoo to see the baby panda (and all the other animals), supervise fence placement and tree removal. Hmmm. There look to be time and space conflicts there. Too bad I'm not a time lord (and wasn't that a GREAT season finale last Friday?).
Now off to work! Tomorrow is a writing/web Kavarna (the new Joe's) day.
PS--iTunes has had a really incredible music selection randomly chosen for the background to this post. From the New Pornographers to "Busy Bodies" by Elvis Costello, "Whip-Smart" by Liz Phair, "She's Got a New Spell" by Billy Bragg, "Caramia" by the Indigo Girls, and finishing up with "Ziggy Stardust" by David Bowie. I'm taking it as a portent for a randomly great week!
