'Twas The Night Before the Glass Sale...

Much though the current actions of those currently in charge of this country scare and appall me, I am going to remain true to the nature of this blog and post about GLASS tonight. Part of the reason for that is that every time I try to post quotes and data and outrage over some recent political idiocy, Blogger deletes my post before I can get it up. Tonight, as before, I'm taking it as a sign. So I take another--they seem to be endless these days--deep breath and I focus on tomorrow in the studio. There are plenty of other places on the Internet where you can get your political news, and frankly I need a bit of a break from it too. Note to self: No more reading the news or social media before blogging.

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, but that's a post for another day.

I hope you clean out the stocks tomorrow!

Brenda, hope you sell out all that's left is dust! My brother, James, is very interested in buying your Mom's car. I gave him your 678 phone number, but didn't know if it is still active. If not please contact me at 404-210-0790. Best of luck! Becky Sizemore
