We had a great time and the last night we went to a wonderful place for dinner, an old resort that used to be the favorite hideway of M. Monroe and other movie stars. It has a beautiful large pool, and has kept to the modern mid-century look and feel. Dinner was delicious and a real treat to end the trip.

We are off today to be with family for Turkey Day. Flying. I’m calmer this time than usual, but I’m still not thrilled about it. It’s a short flight at least. Made my first dichro bead Tuesday. I love the color, the glass started out reddish/yellow! If I have access to them Internets I’ll update [...]
I got my gloves and the tree pruner and scrambled up a ladder onto the roof, where I cleaned out all the gutters, flinging gunk to the yard below, and pruned back as much of the maple in the front yard that I could reach. I still need to get at a few more areas with the ladder from the ground. It was a bright, clear fall day and often I would take a short break just sitting up there, looking over the other rooftops and trees. The view is so different from just a couple stories up. It was a wonderful day to clean gutters, if you had to clean gutters.
So far I’ve made a small sculpture pumpkin and a fire hydrant that looked like something else… but today I bring you cuteness! Pig! Bear!
The coast was marvelous, rainy and stormy. Saturday night there were, according to the folks in the tiny cafe we ate in Sunday morning, gusts up to 80 mph. Lots of crashing waves as we watched Ice Age and drank wine. During the day Saturday we did errands, buying cleaning products and basics for the place. I stopped by a local glass fuser/lampworker not far up the road and talked shop; she gave me five pieces of dichro to play with, yay!
It’s coooooold here. Frost on the ground. Chip your windshield before leaving cold. Hot tea at night cold
two of my necklaces that sold yesterday. Straw Circle Green Lantern Bye bye, loves. I hope you are worn often!
I learned a LOT.
I had a limited budget and timeframe to come up with my table, and I know one thing I need is higher risers, more things at eye level. I knew this going in and being there confirmed it. And I need to pull together more of a theme with my table, I want it to be an experience.
Work requested I take an extension to the end of the year, and I agreed. Today should have been my one week mark to the end, but now Dec. 30th is my exit signpost. I have very mixed feelings about all this. Math shows me that DLJ’s income is pretty low for what it should [...]
