Another Wednesday? Already? Feels like we just had one! Let’s see… what am I working on this week… I mean, besides trying to work around the cat who wants to live between me and the keyboard, making it impossible for me to type… In ceramics, I’m at a crossroad between Test Tile City and Decal Village. I want to spend all my time in both those locations, they’re so fun and addictive! I should have a big decal item update on Friday (well, opening the kiln Friday, and I’ll get everything up as fast as I can but it may...

Hello, and Happy Wednesday! I actually started this with “Good Morning” but then I took a nap, and then I got some glazing done, and it’s 2:30 and I’m just now sitting back down to the computer. Tulip, the new rescue cat, has recently discovered the Rest of the House, and also that she loves snuggles, and is Not Happy that our house sleeps with the bedroom door shut, denying her either of snuggles (if she’s outside the bedroom) or her cat box (if she’s inside the bedroom). We’re going to have to figure out how to set some boundaries...

You know, at this point, I almost expect to be knocked off course every time I sit down to write something. It’s just been that kind of a ten or twelve months… I’m sure you know what I mean. You start to focus on one thing, thinking “I can let my eyes off the world for this two minutes, to get this thing done” and then BAM there’s a plague, or another innocent man getting shot for being out jogging, or an armed insurrection or something. It makes it really hard to concentrate. It’s like… do you like to fly?...

Yay, we’re all back at work in this brand-new, no-stress, totally awesome wonderful new year! Hahahahahah! Or at least it’s a Wednesday, right? So let’s talk about what’s going on! When I’d originally thought of what I wanted to do this week, it was dye yarn - I’d been out of blanks for the Andre and Tepper bases for a while and wanted to catch up on colorways that needed to be restocked. But I’m also way, way low on soap. Soap is winning out for my focus this week, then… I’ll talk more about that in a sec. Meanwhile…....

Whew… what a week. WHAT A YEAR. This might be my last WiP post for the year - next Wed is two days before Christmas, and the next one is two days before New Years. In a normal year I’d be flipping out that I don’t have enough presents wrapped, Chex Mix made, etc… this year I’m just like YO I HAVE SURVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVED… and you? Pat yourself on the back if you’re reading this, because it means you’ve made it this far, too. How about, since you’re reading what I’m writing, we make a deal with each other — if...
