Smoke and masks and migraines still, but no plasterwork. Shares needed.

Yes, it's another repeat photo today, because 1) I have no time for anything else, and 2) I need my refuge, my sanctuary blues, but this is as close as I'm gonna get for a long while yet.

We are now a whole week behind on the plasterwork (crew not available today), because the company I ordered the mica from sat on the order for five days. Nothing that can be done about it at this point, other than grind my teeth into a little more dust. For a job that seemed to go so well last summer and fall, everything since the first of the year has just been one damn thing after another. Day . . .10, is it? of my migraine, and the air is nothing but smoke. Bad enough that we wore masks doing morning chores, actually, and I may have to go back to it for this evening.

So, yes, I'm hot and tired and cranky and irritable, and I have a lot more work to do yet this evening, so it's just links tonight. First, though, a big thank you to the folks who ordered some stuff today and otherwise contributed to the effort. I'm not naming names because I don't know whether they want me to do so. And now, back to the links (and back to other work for me):
  • First, to donate, the PayPal link is here
  • Second, for sales (which we really need to make, and I'll be highlighting some of his high-end stuff on the site this week), the link to Wings's site (preferably with a testimonial, if you have some of his work), because sales are gonna keep this thing rolling. 
  • And finally, the link to our wishlist (which badly needs updating), with an emphasis on the Lowe's gift cards, because those are what will help us pay for all the stuff that will make this place liveable, like a water heater and flooring and so forth. [Shout-out also to the generous person (tm, maybe?) who bought the molasses, which is how we medicate the horses, and to the three folks who sent Lowe's gift cards.] A note here: To tile the downstairs, we'll need to go to Home Depot, which doesn't sell gift cards through Amazon; they can be purchased through the company's Web site here.
Many thanks and much love to everyone.
