Quick update before bed:
I spent another 5 hours in Doug's Garage. I need to improve the ventilation: I had a headache by the time I was done today. I'll move the fan to the window, and blow in. The air will be more turbulent in that configuration but will guarantee that I'm getting clean air into the garage. I made two flower bloom marbles, one vortex marble, two loose leaves, and one flower (five petals, two leaves, and a stem). Too warm to take home this evening so I'll photograph them on Monday. I'm happy how the flower turned out, considering it has more components than any other object I've assembled (save for the cube but that doesn't really count because each component was just a cut length of 4mm rod). The vortex marble doesn't have much vortex effect going on but I like how the window into the marble turned out, as well as how the disco sparkle really does sparkle.
Also today: dinner with Doug; straightened up my apartment; mounted a display case for coins on the wall.
