Updates: Busy and Behind Schedule
Kel Wednesday, August 27, 2014This week flew by! I got sucked in by Netflix, picked up my finished clay things, helped my cousin with her fixer upper house, saw "The Giver," and caught the very beginning of the new Dr. Who season. The cousin and her brother-in-law already tore out the pegboard walls (yep, pegboard) and stapled ceiling tiles, so we packed everything up in contractor bags and hauled the larger pieces out to the curb. Then we spent an hour pulling the bazillion staples out of the ceiling joists so she can install drywall. Handiness!
And the results of my war with the pottery wheel, take 2:
They didn't trim up the bottoms neatly like last time, but I really like the glaze, and the one might be big enough for candy!
I also updated my Reviews page- which is now one page instead of three and should open on iPads and iPhones- and added a Recent Reviews widget! Feel free to check them out and let me know what you think of the new look. In other book news...
Received in the Mail:
My Better World Books order came in, as did my copy of Caught (with the right cover). And now I want to drop everything and read the new pretties, but no. There are many other books on the shelves and table drop zone that take precedence. Back of the line, newbies!
Not my best reading week, but I made it through this fairy tale-inspired short story collection. I started The Lies of Locke Lamora, BUT... I failed to get through my friend's manuscript this weekend, and I promised her I'd have it read and critiqued by the end of the month, so Lamora is on hold.
That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of A Conspiracy of Alchemists by Liesel Schwarz!
