Happy Holidaze y'all!
We're settling in for our "long winter nap" here in the hills of Arnoldsburg!
After being away from home for most of November and December, we've managed to make it to our winter break. The picture above is what i look like when i'm actually writing this blog... just in case you were curious!
We get to stay home for a whole month! Unless, of course, we get an offer we can't refuse... we've heard rumors about a great show in Florida in January that sounds pretty appealing (then again, anything in Florida in January sounds pretty good). But i'm going out to Colorado to help my Mom and bro-in-law wrangle my niece and nephew while my sister goes on a business trip. This means that the road trip to Florida is less likely, both in terms of time and stock (as in, i can't make pots while i'm in Colorado)
And anyway, i need to get to work on both a) the new pots to replace the newgrange line and b) my new project. More about that later.
First, some pics:

Above, all of my sweeties snuggling on the couch at my friends house in Hamilton,ON

Below, the dogs wrasslin with our doggie host: (they're just playing. No, really!)

Below, Budgth is trying to sleep on our drive back home from Canada:

and here's Spike actually napping on the way home: Cool sweater, huh?

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Spike got his name from our friend Ceit, who is her sleep deprived state on our first night in her house in Canada, called him that cause she couldn't remember an of his other names. It sort of stuck, cause he's small, has light coloring, is a bit scruffy, would have a British accent and is ambivalent about whether to use his powers for good or evil. These are all traits he has in common with Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Thus, the name has stuck. (though the sweater was subsequently destroyed in a wild rampage with Budgth).
So, that's what's going on here in Dancing Pig Land over the holidaze. Have a cool Yule and a enjoy the return of the strengthening Sun!
