The last couple of days have been real good. Tuesday, the air conditioning people came to give an estimate for the hood installation and ventilation work. The estimate was a bit more than we had thought it would be. But, my mother decided to go forward with it. I’ve ordered the hood which will ship on April 1st and I ordered the oxygen concentrator tonight. I should be up and running (or melting) in the next few weeks.
Wednesday, a friend straightened my mandrels for me. It’s been so nice to have straight mandrels! After he straightened my mandrels we went out to lunch. I didn’t get to the torch until 1:00 PM, but I had a good session – no duds!
I got an e-mail from the president of our local NAMI affiliate about the Visionary Guild – they will have a table at the NAMI convention and said it would be all right if I had 2 or 3 pieces of my best work on their table at the convention. I would have to have business cards, so I ordered some last night. I’m kind of excited about the business cards – and the chance to “show” some of my work.
Today was another good day. It’s definitely heading on into spring. The trees are blooming and the azaleas are starting to bloom. Spring is my favorite time of year. I opened my window up high and torched for a few hours. It was so pleasant! I spent some time today cleaning bead holes. I have a bit of a backlog of beads to clean. I wanted to get some more beads listed on Etsy, but that might have to wait until tomorrow.
