so today after I took my beloved to the airport for yet another business trip...I went to the studio and made
1. test tiles
2. 3 little bowls, also to be tests.
3. put one vase and one oval plate on the bisque cart.
4. slathered slip on another larger oval plate that I hope to carve (if it doesn't dry out.)
Then...I went to Target and bought four long sleeve t-s to wear under sweaters and a diet dr. pepper. ($40)
and to Ulta to get gel eyeliner and a brush ($30 bucks!)
then home, where I cleaned the kitchen--washed dishes, comet-ed the countertops, scrubbed the stove (all sparkly now) and swept and mopped the floor and the front entry way (why don't we pay someone to do this??...oh, yeah, can't really afford that right now)
then ate lunch and finished Augusten Burrough's book, "Dry"
watched two episodes of Entourage on demand as I worked out on treadmill and elliptical.
talked to beloved several times inbetween all this stuff.
fed dogs, fed feral cat living in basement. Her name is Spooky. I have never really seen her. long story. for another time.
wrote a piece for newsletter. checked email.
went out to grocery store.
walked big doggies around the block--second time today.
cleaned up pee-pee in hallway from one passive agressive 5 pound poodle that did not get to go on second walk.
and am currently procrastinating editing a paper for a dear friend of mine.
all in all, a lovely day off.
for all I got to be today.
