Back to Reality …

Although – LOTS of times, our reality is pretty AWESOME!


We have puppies … Yep, Zeus is a first-time dad, and DH is strutting around, ready to pass out cigars – he is so proud of HIS BOY!  Winking smile  Thirteen new bundles of wrinkles and puppy breath added to our ‘den’.  Mom is already eating and drinking well – smiling at me every time I head to the kitchen …

And the Yorkie pups (who have been named during my absence … really cute names, too) are ready to advance to the next level – exploring around the kitchen/mud room.  [Here they are in their last pen.]


The whole gang and crew did great while we were away.  We (DH and I) had a wonderful time (although we ended with a few cloudy days – very untypical from our past experiences in Paradise), met interesting and fun people, and now my liver is ready for a break.

Papa/Grandma and the twins enjoyed our time away too.  I have a refrigerator AND pantry FULL of junk food to prove it!!

So, I’ll head back to work tomorrow and start the process of detoxing (the KIDS – from SUGAR … NOT ME, Jeesh!!!), buckling down (ohhh TAXES), and settling into reality (playing with puppies).  Maybe next week I can steal some studio time too … I have Jamaican bottles!!!

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
