I am tired after reading all that! I think I will go take a nap.

June Perry said...

Ah, the life of women potters with families. I'm surprised you made it to 7:30! :-)

They are welcome!
I was worn out just reading your list!

An explanation of the "welcome" comment...every once in a while I look at my hub and kids & say to them "You're welcome." Whether they want to thank me or not! I'm sure yours know how swell you are.

"Sieved 6 buckets of glaze", clearly you used your Talisman sieve.It still looks like the day was packed.

Tracey Broome said...

Sherry, I have been a slug plenty this winter, time to get some work done!
Michele, I'm planning nap time today for sure.
June, I know, I was trying my best to make it to 8pm, but I was nodding off at 7. I'm pretty sure I have read schedules like this on your blog too!
Cindy, I get plenty of thank yous, and Gerry works really hard so I can do all this, so it's pretty equal I suppose. But yes, sometimes I throw in one of those your welcomed as well!
Dennis, yes the talisman, don't know what I would do without it. I used to sieve glazes with a brush and plain sieve when I was a studio assistant, hated those days when the list of things to do said, sieve glazes, ugh!
