Hey- it's December!

After a day working at the computer and service people in and out. I moved around well enough not to need a cane to help me balance.
Maybe the low dose of meds is helping.
My plan is to run some blanks for tiles today.
I have too many that need to come out of my head and I still don't think throwing would be wise.
Too much spinning.

This afternoon Allison, you all remember Allison ,will come in to put glaze on her tile.
I need to have some work to go around her work so I can get it through the kiln in time for her to snatch up a grade on her project.
It has been fun and interesting to work with someone whom I have know since the day she was born.
In fact on the day she was born Whynot Pottery closed so we could go to the hospital and hold her.
She was so tiny.
Now, she will graduate from High School and go to college.
In the blink of an eye.

And thanks all for the well wishes and encouragement.
I am amazed at the blogging "community."
Friends in far places, and yet, we are all connected by clay and our lives which are intertwined with that clay.

Time sure does fly by but what pleasant memories to share and be left with.

Holy cow! I didn't realize you still were fighting your vertigo- So glad to hear it is a bit better!!

Anytime I read your writing, I am amazed at how soothing it is. Even your comments are written in a beautiful style that is poetic, like haiku.

I'm glad you are feeling better. Tiles are probably much safer than a wheel today. Even without vertigo, there are days when staring at the spinning wheel for too many hours is too much~

Today was good!
I did not walk into any walls and seem to be very close back to me.
I wonder if I could get another round of the valium?
On the house!

Glad and relieved that you're better. How fun that you've known Allison since she's known life. That is surely a special connection. Get well, take care, love from me.

Glad to read that things are improving. Hopefully, you'll be good as new "in the blink of an eye" too.
