The deadline for entering the NC Landscape show is Friday and where is my wonderful photographer/husband? Shooting (photographing) Tiger Woods, when I need him here shooting barns! I am left to my own skills, which are minimal at best, hope the juror is understanding!
Jen Mecca is getting some nice results with her new set up and I keep saying "I gotta get me one of them". Jen also posted a "day in the life" a few days ago and I have had one of those days, so I thought I would post one too. I think we should all do that, misery loves company. So here goes:
Up at 6am, Gerry left for the golf tournament to cover bad boy Tiger (why do we really care about this guy?) unloaded a bisque, checked in with the blog world, returned emails.
Packed Wesley's lunch, got her up, took her to school, left lunch on counter with my wallet, came back home, got lunch and wallet, back to school then to the garden center for veggies and herbs, it was freezing, brrrr, not enough clothes on. Stopped by Mickey D's for a very large tea, got home, unpacked the car, cleaned out the flower beds, made two teepee trellises for the tomatoes from some little trees we had cut down, planted veggies (oh, dog had crapped on the floor, forgot to let him out before I left, oops) cleaned that up, mopped the floor, took the rugs out side to hose off, ick. Cleaned my kiln area, class is coming to my house to fire tomorrow. Washed two loads of clothes, finished unpacking from Shakori, glazed a cone 6 load of baskets and trays, time to pick up Wes at school, came home and finished show application, re did resume, photographed barns, edited pics, burned a CD, packed up the app, went to the post office, missed the post office by 5 minutes so Wes will mail tomorrow for me, went to Torero's for tamales and a beer, home again, brought in rugs, went to the Artscenter to pick up glazes and some clay, back home, unpacked car, set up a glazing table for my class, washed dishes in sink, now I'm wrapping up this blog and heading for a shower. I forgot to eat lunch and I haven't brushed my hair since Sunday. Whew~! this is a pretty typical day.....sigh.
Oh yeah, while I was digging all of those holes? I dug up yellow clay and very very red orange clay in two different places. I just sat there and rolled some balls with it and dreamed of digging big pits in my yard and harvesting my own clay. Gerry would just love that :)
