Blue Monday

Coffee in the New York skyline mug, "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" performed by Frank Sinatra and backup on iTunes. Either Frank was a rebel or the monkeys who wrote up the album and song titles were lazy. He clearly and definitively sang "It came upon THE midnight clear...". Well I have better things to worry and obsess about today so I had better get on it. (Baxter has better things to obsess about too, like the squirrels on the back deck eternally taunting him through the window.)

My day, sick again with another stomach thing, is going to be spent on the couch keeping my books until my meeting with the accountant at 1:00. No one signed up for Open Studio today so I am off the hook there. I'll either work on Christmas things or do invoices and lists of pieces for the Atlanta's Mart and Dallas Finds... Or I'll sleep some more. Oy. I feel battered. Again.

The show Saturday went very well. We all had new exciting work, but I think Licha wins the prize for the best with her two-reactive-glass pieces. They made me think of winter and I am dying to try some out. Unfortunately Bullseye just discontinued one of the glasses needed so I'm not sure how much I'll be able to do. I think I have a sheet or two in the studio--just enough for a friend's Christmas present.

The ornaments and garden stakes (gemdrops and gemstakes) were a hit--as was the large Moonrise piece that Patrick talked me into taking down from the wall in the studio office and putting up in the gallery. Well, to be fair, he put it up.

This virus, if it's what you've succumbed to, is pretty rough; it might be several more days before you feel well. Keep hydrated.

hey, you do clean up well and brushed teeth feel so much better than unbrushed - squeaky clean feeling as one of those old commercials used to say ;P
