would you give up a day or two to spend with family? We would and we did. We had to leave the pots glazed and unfired to go and take care of some family issues.
The bonus was time with love ones.
My mother tells me she is not getting any younger, and, yet, she is still sharp, quick witted and living in her own home. I could spend hours talking with her. It has always been this way with her and me. Even as a teen she was one of my favorite people to be around. I always wanted not to get along with her as a teen and just could not seem to find things to disagree on. Sure I was a messy teen, most are, but she was always my rock, still is.
Then the daughter and little Ms. MJ to spend time with. This is another female in my life that I find so easy to be with. Well, both of them, but at 2 plus the conversations with MJ are not real deep. She is quite a talker and we did build cities and knock them down a lot.
Time well spent.
Before we left I unloaded some tiles and was pleased with most of them. I had tried a white clay body last round and found the glazes looked washed without the warmth that I get with the red body. I still prefer this body and have
Today we are loading Ms. B and I will get on some clean up while thinking about throwing.
We have our event coming up on the 13th and we need to think past that to the November show and Christmas orders.
I did make a number of these smaller tiles to hang. I am enjoying the quickness of them. They work great to fill in around the larger ones.
I did a set of 3 that go together and now I am trying to decide if I want to just put the wooden hangers on them or frame them together.
And, can you stand a picture of little Miss.?
So, really, would you give up some time to be with family?
