A minute to relax …

We had our show.  It was great!  A lot of work, but what a wonderful end to our ‘season’!  Here is our 24 foot long ‘booth’ (the only photo I took, as we were still setting up … DOH!)


In the meantime, my studio is trashed(!!!), but there is no down-time for the wicked weary (I love it!), so work continues as I fill orders, create custom pieces and keep up on stock.  It is definitely ornament-time here!

We had a super Thanksgiving!  Fairly laid back, but with amazing food!  We made the best (20 pound) turkey yet this year, thanks to information I found on The Runaway Spoon blog (thanks P.C.).  Along with 8 quarts (full crockpot) of chex mix for snacking, walnut/apple/whiskey stuffing, my family’s favorite mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and pumpkin/pecan pies.  It was GOOD EATIN’! (No after-cooking photo of the turkey, as we use a roasting bag in roaster, so my bacon wasn’t crisp and pretty.  It didn’t stop me from blending some, along with carrots and onions into the turkey stock for AMAZING gravy!)

A quick, cute photo of Cally, as she likes to watch over me while I’m working at the computer … (Our youngest daughter gave her that pathetic hair cut.  We’re working on her grooming skillz!)


So, a bit of stolen time to relax before we run full speed ahead into Christmas preparations.  Just enough time to play with pups, who are 3 weeks old now – the little porkers! Winking smile
