Ahhhh … Sunshine and Solitude

summer-windowDH is out manning the tractor, cutting hay …

The kids are in school, for a few more days before they wrap up another academic year – and Summer break begins … I can hear the bickering now.

But for today, it’s just me and the dogs, as we sit, enjoying the sunshine, quiet and our wake-up coffee.  So peaceful … I love it.  Time to plan for dinner (Teriyaki Chicken), my studio work and evening activities.  Time to enjoy the view as the sun pours in my breakfast window.  Pretty and peaceful.

I received a few new summer candle scents (and jars), so will make some soy candles this evening:


I also wrapped up a knitting project.  It’s in the washing machine now, being felted.  But here’s a photo taken with my phone (not a great camera).  It’s ginormous!  (That’s an emesis basin in the corner, ‘to give it scale’ … classy, huh?)  And, a quick pic (again, lousy phone camera) of the socks I’m knitting now.

Time to get moving …

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
