Whew!!! I finally finished my radiation treatments on Friday. I am truely blessed because the worse side effect I've had is the burning in my throat area and a degree of fatigue. I was able to drive myself the entire time so that was good. Back to my art room tomorrow to work on jewelry. A blessed week to all.

Mad Scientist Experiment Runs Amuck!!!!!!!
Today I tried to rid my etching tub of ferric chloride and created a disaster. I forgot I had added baking soda water into a small bowl a few days back and poured it all into a large container with the ferric chloride. A volcano of puffy, boiling, sizzling, spewing mess came pouring out of my throw away container. This stuff took on a life of it's own. Sort of like the big marshmellow man in the movie Ghost Busters. Now, the dilemma, where to put this stuff????? Well, all I know to do with it is put as much as I could in a gargage bag and then hose off the table and deck floor. I've probably contaminated the whole neighborhood.
Sometimes I think I need to be locked up.
