I Cooked My Butt Off …

So, we had some family out … Our first-borns (daughter and son) and our new(-ish) son-in-law.  It was a great visit!  I thoroughly enjoy listening to their journeys, tasks, accomplishments and obstacles.  They are amazing young people.  (BTW – our youngest [the Twins] are too, it just makes my life a bit easier to divide …

Busy … Not Busy –

So, while we have been doing ‘STUFF’ this last little bit, my studio has been quiet.  But that’s ok! Running through some of the highlights from the last several weeks:  A great celebration for Father’s Day combined with my dad’s birthday; Learning how to (and successfully) getting through two broody hens (the POLISH girls – …

Sweet Days of Summer

Another catch-up post … DH and I are enjoying the summer.  We had the kids out last week to celebrate 3 of the 4 birthdays (the twins are 23, and our oldest daughter will soon be 28 … Dang, someone around here is getting OLD!!!).  It was a fun night, and we’re so proud of …

Updates …

I have managed to misplace my creative mojo again.  But – there have been a few other things keeping us occupied lately … We’ve had puppies (again)!  Our Josie had her first litter, so we’ve added four big, beautiful blue babies to our nursery. Josie is doing an awesome job loving, feeding and caring for …

A Lot to Report …

OK  – running through the list since my last post.  Last week was wonderful, with pool days every day!  Got through a steady ER-nursing weekend, with a bit of a twist.  Our youngest daughter came up to see me and inform she was heading back to Ghana for a ‘short visit’ (3 wks).  She left …

It’s the 20 Year Anniversary …

Of turning 29 … Yep, that’s what I celebrated this week.  I’ve spent the last several years avoiding specific numbers, while I slowly acknowledge – and am just about ready to – fully gear-up – and possibly embrace … turning 50 (read: F.I.F.T.Y; “The BIG 5-0”!!!) … Yeah, sure … IN ANOTHER 363 days. It’s …

Viruses, Birthdays & Studio Updates

Our youngest daughter was sick last week … and then DH & I both came down with a virus that wiped us out for a couple of days.  [Yep Baby Girl in Ghana, and we get sick too!]  So, I made her a get-well card, along with a Halloween card.  And, our oldest son turned …

Turning 29 and other news …

Celebrated another anniversary of ‘Turning 29’ … DH and I had a quiet week.  I didn’t cook a single thing, and he made cake!   Hmm, I might finally have this birthday thing figured out … We watched over our pups, who are slowly opening their eyes: I made some progress on my double-knit polka dot …

I’m running out of time!

Arrgghh!  But – what else is new???  … It’s ok …  See how well the [almost older, and OBVIOSLY wiser] me can handle frustration like that?  Yeah, well … I’m working on it.  Here’s what we have up next: Christmas plate for 2016 More POF in the works … Thank you, Lena!  My spoon rests …

29 … and holding?

Happy Birthday to me!  I’d say I had a great 17th anniversary of my 29th birthday, but … It started out perfect.  Playing in the studio with the Mongrels and Gustifer, working on bowls and ornaments, followed by a dinner with the family at our traditional restaurant.  [My adult kids, BTW … all beautiful, healthy, …
