I will finally be back at the market this Saturday. It felt rather odd to not be there on the opening day. I have missed catching up with my market peeps.

The kiln was loaded for the glaze firing this morning. I would pick the hottest day of the year to unleash the fires of hell in the garage. I am excited to crack the lid. Some of the clay is a mish mash of cinq rouge, wheatstone and a white clay body. It should be interesting to see what the final color will be.

I will have fleur de lis plates and smaller butter keepers with me. Come early to make sure you get yours!

Crazy Stopped By

I've come to realize that most people probably think I have lost my mind somewhere along the way. Which is to my advantage (maybe). I'm sure I'll forever be the crazy old aunt. But aren't those the best?

The DH left on an overnight work trip today. And I set the bar HIGH for things to be completed in 32 hours including sleep. About thirty minutes ago I finished painting the entire upstairs master bedroom including trim with the exception of cutting in around the ceiling. I hope to have that part finished, the floor steam cleaned, the bed moved in and to have a shower by 4pm at which time I will be leaving for the airport (I hope). I really want to have everything shifted around but that may just have to wait until Friday.

Send up some prayers that I find DH's wedding band when I move the bed. St. Anthony pray for us!

Life has seen fit to advise me to step back and concentrate on my children and home for the last few months. School work is completed for the kids. Although mom needs to finish her paper work. The deadline is looming. I have decided to put a hold on the market this summer until I have finished all of the shifting and sorting involved in setting up our new classroom. New posts about my adventures will be coming soon.
