Supper with the boys

 Hollis Engley, Michael Hunt and Brandon Phillips that is
 I made the BEST red lentil soup for supper last night, but it tasted even better in three of my favorite bowls.
 Wesley came home from school for the weekend, the weather hinting the tiniest bit that fall is close and it just felt like a soup day. Nourish my child and welcome cooler weather. Soup, salad, some nine grain bread and the table set with beautiful pots. What, can you tell me, is better than this!?
Check this out: hello Pamela. My friend Laura is in Vermont having an art fest with a two week residency at the Vermont Studio Center and who does she meet? This lovely lady that bought one of my pieces at Lark and Key in Charlotte! Is it the very smallest world ever or what!?!? Laura emailed this photo to me yesterday. HA!
How does that happen, so weird. Nice to meet you Pamela :)

Going to spend some time with Wes and Gerry today. I'm out of clay, so I'll be heading to Starworks  on Wednesday with a side trip to visit Meredith at Whynot. Monday I am going to check out a local gym. More about that later.

It's always good to see my pots on your table, Tracey. Tell Gerry that we had another AP shooter at the table on our deck yesterday. Mark Lennihan, who works out of the NY bureau, stopped by on the way to the Vineyard with his two kids. Mark and I knew each other almost 40 years ago on the island, then he helped recruit me for the photo dept at the Santa Fe New Mexican in the early '80s. Haven't seen him in years. He knows Gerry, or at least knows of him.

it sure did feel like fall yesterday and hearty soups & stews taste so much better in handmade bowls.
Oh so lovely to look at too!

Tracey Broome said...

Hey Hollis, yes Gerry Knows Mark, small world again!
Michele, I know! The soup I made was so pretty in my bowls, extra treat!

Hannah said...

Soup here today too for the exact same reason, Michael Kline and Clive Bowen here though.

Susan Wells said...

Lordy Small world! I guess that means your work is in VT now. That's fun too! I'm getting a list ready for STAR! And can't wait to hear about the gym. Whoah nelly.

This post just reminds me that each day brings new surprises and comforts!!!

Tracey Broome said...

Hey Hannah, hmmmm, good company for you too :)
Susan, yes, Star, I'm mostly thinking about what I want to eat haha! Hi Judi, yes every day there is something unexpected just around the corner!

Everything tastes better in handmade pottery.
It is a small world because of this community that we create.

Tracey Broome said...

So true, Lori, for both things :)
