Coffee in the Chicago skyline mug, "Real Good Thing" by Marc Broussard on iTunes. And we're off! Another week has begun with its deadlines and tasks and treats. The weekend just passed was glassless in action but full of glass planning (and ERP system creation). I also ruthlessly whacked at all the trees and shrubs in the front yard and followed that up with taking J for a haircut--but that's all another story.
Deadlines this week include several orders for shipping and the sidelights for GPQ. For tasks, I have the final artist organization for the open studio, working more on the ERP system, and making sample sets for the galleries that have requested them. My big treat this week will be preparing the studio to host 24 7th graders on a fieldtrip from J's school. This fall I have the privilege of teaching them basic glass cutting and kiln-forming and then helping them make glass ornaments/sun catchers for the school's holiday fair.
And now the deer hound is stirring and telling me it's time to head to the studio.
