I like this pace …

Cruisin’ along, getting stuff done, cleaning, making cards, playing with babies … I really could get used to this slower pace.  But, I’m ready for summer!  My garden is calling me ,,, Those teaser weather days really hit me. Anyway – I am making steady progress on the mess that is the studio.  I moved …

So now …

The dreaded taxes are done!  Yay!  So now, we can focus on the next job(s) … Our group project is refinishing the hardwood floors.  MY NEXT project is finding and CLEANING this studio.  I’m going to majorly shame myself and post a photo.  It shows just how cluttered I’ve become.  Gah!  In between, I will …

That time of year …

But first – here are some of the bulbs I made in the glass blowing class with my sister.  We had a great time, and now we’re looking at other classes to take. It is THAT time of year, so tax prep is well underway.  I’m hoping we can pull them together within the next …

Card-Mania Continues …

I’ve spent a bit of quality time in my studio, playing with paper.  DH and I were talking about working some of the area Farmers Markets this spring/summer … Right now I’m making cards, cards, and more cards …        Meanwhile, our hydroponics are still going strong.  I’m hoping to get some tomatoes …

So, Actually …

Snow and Play …

We had our big snow storm.  It produced, but nothing overly dramatic.  The pups had fun romping through it, though. Meanwhile, we continue to play in the ceramic  studio.  DH made a Batman mug.  It fired okay (with glazes), but we’ve definitely had some better pieces coming out of our kilns.  And here is our …

Having a GREAT time …

Warning – another photo-heavy post.  But, I’m having so much fun!  DH had a birthday, so I made him a ‘pop-up’ card: And, we’ve been cooking.  I have photos of the jerky we made (pork, beef and chicken), along with the homemade dog treats … The pups love them!  Here’s the link to the dog …

I’m Trying to be Creative …

While I’m down and out! So, my back is not happy.  Apparently, she’s trying to disband from this union.  I’ve been nursing her back to homeostasis, if not happiness – for the better part of a week.  She’s just not falling for it.  I ice, take ibuprofen, ice a bit more, try Ultram, add more …

He Really Only Had One Job To DO …

And, honestly – isn’t that typical!?!  Doh!!!  But we did it!  We got a farming task ‘under our belts’ … I believe our SKOS birds had their best life.  Wednesday afternoon, they peacefully – Met Nirvana; Played in the sandbox in the sky; Found joy … and, Joined My Freezer. Reflecting back, it’s not undo-able, …
