Coffee in the Denver skyline mug (ah, the comforts of home--it may not be mocha, but it's BIG!), I am listening one last time to all the songs from last week's THEME which was... Songs That Have the Word "Disney " In Them! Well, they all do except the Donnas song which was a random play and sparked the idea with the line "...Or we'll be doing time in Annaheim.". Thanks to Song Lyrics for the great site. All I had to do was go there, do a lyrics search for "Disney", then head to the iTunes store for downloads (all my choices were available), and, Voila, instant themed playlist!
Today is Thursday. I have a gallery pick-up this morning, a write-up to do for pieces I am donating to a local school auction, a glassblower friend who fired a test piece yesterday is coming back to do a couple more this afternoon, I have to get back in touch with my landscaper about finishing the front studio yard, there is a full kiln load to get in and Denver Glass Machinery to utz about the status of my new kiln (when, when, WHEN?), and lots of web work to do at gymnastics and ballet this afternoon.
Last night was date night so my spouse was unsurprised when we ended up at Home Depot. It was HIS brilliant idea to rent one of their trucks, enabling me to buy a picnic table, 50 stones for a retaining wall (a nice 1100 lb workout unloading them), and a big, gorgeous yellow Lady Banks rose--all for the studio, and all on one year deferred financing (the rose tipped the amount into the range for the free financing, it wasn't on the original list). The stones are for the south side of the shed to build a raised bed for the $2 azaleas I got at Home Depot on the last trip. Now I just need good dirt...
There's more to a glass studio than glass in the spring.
