Welcome to the Mish-Mash

Coffee in the Alaska skyline mug, "Long Walk Home" by Bruce Springsteen on iTunes. Is this a great country or what? First you get to pre-order books from your favorite authors and have them delivered to your door on release date from Amazon, now you can pre-order albums from iTunes and get notified they are available for download on release date. The new Springsteen "Magic" was delivered to my desktop this morning. Brilliant.

Oh it's a random throw-everything-in-the-blender-and-see-what-flies-out-and-hits-the-wall kind of day!

It has stopped raining for the moment, but the all-day rain forecast has canceled today's scheduled manual clean-up of the studio yard. Rudy showed up at 4:15 pm yesterday with the bobcat and the dump truck and I looked out this morning to see a pile of concrete rubble still there. I scratch my head and wonder if he plans to take it at all or if it will just be an urban modern art sculpture to decorate the yard... I have no idea if he is planning on coming back today. He was still there at 7:00 pm last night when I locked up after the cleaning women.

Cleaning women. Oh it smells nice in there now! Even the ceiling fans gleam. There was a questionable substance smeared, flung randomly... well, you get the picture. It's gone now.

Dan is putting in the French doors to the back bedroom today. At least he was planning to before the rain. I wonder if it'll stop him too?

Yesterday I fired my last big scheduled fuse load for awhile--the next orders aren't due to go out till the end of October. I'll have to wait and see what falls out of the tree now. It would be a great time to hear from the Art Institute.

Today I'll redo the fountain back for GPQ (fuse), write a testimonial for my realtor extraordinaire, respond to emails from a couple of potential clients... oh yes, and lunch with Dee! No school tomorrow for J (found out this morning--should've flipped the calendar sooner). Talk about a mish-mash day.

Have you considered calling the Art Institute to see if they need a restock, since there's space in your firing schedule? Instead of waiting until you're in the middle of your move, and can't make them anything?

I did write and they will order in a couple of weeks. They want to know when I plan on moving the studio. It's a game of who blinks first...

I think that they are purposely waiting until you move so that they can leave you twisting in the wind...
