Coffee in the Austin skyline mug (in honor of Bryon and Vanessa who are visiting from that fair city), "Cloudy This Morning" by George Winston on iTunes. It's the first time I've had a minute to miss Montana since my return Tuesday. The week has been crazy busy, but it's winding down--which is good as I pulled a muscle in my back yesterday getting the new kiln lid on Bettina and have limited movement today. Got to get back in peak condition by Thursday for the BMAC.
The firings continue apace as do writing commitments. I have my first regular column (on product viability) coming out in the Fall issue of Profitable Glass (going to press today), and I have the second column (on pricing) slated but not written for the Winter Profitable Glass. I also have a how-to article for either sidelights or a backsplash for a kitchen stove using special large, baffled ceramic shelves that are perfectly flat and smooth and don't warp for Glass Patterns Quarterly's Winter issue. Never a dull moment here. Hot and muggy moments, yes. Dull, no.
Another short post today I'm afraid. Too tired and sore to scintillate. Vacation and birthday review coming up on Stranded in the South over the weekend (Saturday's Movie Day!).
