Coffee in the Austin skyline mug, "Linus and Lucy" by Vince Guaraldi on iTunes. Yay! I have music again on the laptop! I scarpered D's USB cable for his external drive until my new one comes. He said he could do without, and I, well, can't.
I began the day with a "simples presente, mas de coração" from Edna and Anchieta--and a mutual Portuguese-English lesson. I love Christmas (though all the cookies and salty nuts have made me... swell).
No open studio today--no one signed up--but I do have my apprentice Kevin and I need to figure out what I'm going to have him do. If it warms up it would be a good day to plant pansies and kale in the front garden bed. Not very glasslike, but a studio chore nonetheless.
I have three orders to fire today and Dee is coming down to get some frit and drop off some glass. It's also the deadline for the Atlanta's Mart exhibition services forms and reserving advertising space. Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork--and I don't even get to do it at Kavarna in the company of my spouse! That's going to have to change next week...
