Today is a Much Better Day!
And it came to pass. Yes, yesterday has passed and today is a better day. I'm watching "America's Got Talent," and looking at my bills. Somehow, in this moment, it's much more important to watch TV than it is to pay my bills at this time. Can't get away without paying bills, so I have to do that tonight. Tomorrow is a busy day. I have to go to a meeting about Civic Fest, so I need to live in this moment. I need to pay bills. I need to quit watching TV. Oh, good, the show is over. I had better go and pay bills. Before I go, I have to show you a hand I made. I don't work off mandrel very often, but I did on this one. It was my first time. Other than the ugly color and bright, contrasting frit, I think it's pretty good. I sent a copy of the photo to Bernadette Fuentes. She's the one who said I needed to make a hand. The first 3 I made were more like the 4 fingered hands of cartoon figures. This one, in spite of the colors, really looks like a human hand. Now, don't laugh. Here it is. I don't think Bernadette has anything to worry about. I'm not competition, but it was a great learning experience. Oh, I haven't heard back from Bernadette. I know she'll be kind, but she knows, I'm no competition. More to come later.
