Life interrupting


I can't seem to get anything done in my studio. I have a show in about four weeks at Lark and Key and I have four pieces made! I set aside last week to make work every day, no distractions, but Wesley came home unexpectedly and so I spent time with her, of course! Then I set aside time this weekend, I was going to go in my studio and not come out until I had some houses made. Wesley came home again, this time with a friend. No work done!


 Then today Gerry and I went for an eye exam that turned out to take most of the day. No work done. But Gerry got some hot new glasses.
Then there are eggs to watch. There are two nests on my front porch. The eggs in the hanging basket have hatched into these sweet little things, and there are five eggs in my grandmother's Christmas cactus that haven't hatched yet.


and my empty nest fills back up tomorrow. We are going to Winston Salem to pick up my girl child from school and bringing her home for the summer..... more distractions!
But the clay must wait when I have all these peeps to deal with! However, this one and the one with the new glasses are going to HAVE to leave me alone next week or the Lark and Key show is going to be missing an artist. I have had so many obligations to fill for work, I just stay behind constantly. Maybe I can get something done Wednesday........

Omg stiry of my life. Feels better to know I am not alone in my interrupted life style... The birdies are amazing and Wesley is gorgeous. Oh and Gary has some nice GLASSES... Going to N
Baltimore to sift through aton of my Dad's hoarded stuff to clear out a property and I may find some goodies(or not) looking for anything in particular. Probably no dolls...sadly.

Hey there guys! Friends and family are must have distractions, but it sure does cut down on the amount of work I get made. Judi, definitely keep your eyes open for good junk!

You seem to be able to work well under pressure. Enjoy your life too.

I seem to put myself in that situation way too much! I can work under pressure, but hate it:)
For some reason, it's unavoidable in my life though!
