Nothihg like a four-day weekend, now two days at work, then gone again until the middle of next week. I need to pack tonight. Having Monday be gone is scary, Thursday morning we need to be at the train at 3 am and I am going to TRY to get some sleep, which means popping [...]

FleeTheHive has picked up a few new members, which is good. I want that community to get going, and folks need to contribute to get things humming. I will probably drop it in a few more communities over the next week to try to get some more folks on board and starting to talk. I [...]
The weekend passed quickly, both in fun and work. Friday afternoon I made a stupendous dinner, though I had a big card up my sleeve to achieve this. It’s Copper River salmon season, and I got almost 3/4 pound of king salmon. With a basic ingredient like that, how could I go wrong? With an [...]

A few weeks ago I screwed up a bead. Usually, I just plunk it in water to cool it off and call it done. But I had forgotten to refill my dunk bucket, so I had no choice but to stash it in the kiln and let it anneal. Thank God. When I opened things [...]
I just cleaned the bathroom. I don’t like that job. I think if I could give up one task, that would be it. But the bathroom is nice, now, Simple Greened. I dusted in the bedroom, pulled more ivy, pulled some weeds, made some beads for a trade, read up on some safety information for [...]
Hooray for a fabulous store moving in near my home, and within walking/biking distance!
This bead is not a well-made bead. It’s not quite balanced. It is pretty standard design. But it is WAY cool…. It’s 100% recycled from a fine bottle of cabernet we drank last week. WOOT.
