'Twas The Night Before the Glass Sale...
So tomorrow I sell the last of the glass, supplies, and furniture from my studio that is not moving to Austin. Friday of next week we are set--knock on wood--to close on the sale of the studio and pass ownership of our quirky little 1920's Craftsman bungalow and its resident chickens off to a new owner. Observations indicate that the house may be saved and rehabbed instead of torn down and McMansioned. I would be very happy if that were so as it has great charm, it just needs some TLC (and a serious influx of cash).
Tonight I rest up alone at a friend's empty house and quaff my sauvignon blanc readying myself for tomorrow. I will get up early to stop by Kavarna for an iced mocha and a pastry, and then I'll meet our carpenter Dan at the studio where he will spend the day building me some additional glass crates for my really big and really small glass. I have plenty of Bullseye crates for my regular Bullseye glass, it's the white Tekta, architectural clear, and stained glass glasses that I'm envisioning difficulty packing. And then the half sheets and the 10 X 10's... Just come over tomorrow and buy the darn stuff! Save me! Dee, BLESS HER, is coming to help out with the sale after all which is going to be an ENORMOUS help for me. Nevermind the fact that she is the only one who knows what's going on with the imaged dichro and dichro scrap, just having two people to answer questions is going to help a lot.
Now I'm going to listen to my audiobook a bit and then drop off to sleep. I think I have figured out how to save democracy with Data.world, but that's a post for another day.
