Mid May Update:
We've actually got a few weeks off! Am i making pots as i desperately need to be doing? Noooo, of course not! I've got a new (to me) computer & i'm whiling away the hours setting the darn thing up & playing w/ twitter, brightkite & now, evernote.
I love social networking, web 2.0, whatever you want to call it, but darn if it isn't a huge ol' time suck, especially for an ADD control freak such as myself.
Anyway, here i am, actually posting on a work related blog. Granted, it's turning into a long post about how i'm not actually, you know, working, but still, it's a step in the right direction.

I do have point to make in here somewhere ::rummages around in very cluttered & disorganized brain:: Oh yeah- we've added a show to our schedule/Calendar for Memorial Day weekend (the Glasgow Highland Games in KY) and IF our truck's transmission problem is fixable, Darrell will also be at Aethelmearc's War Practice at Cooper's Lake (aka the Pennsic site) this coming weekend, May 16-18.

Sadly, that's a big IF, as our trusty steed, Ol' Leroy, died a horrible gear grinding death this past Wednesday, down near Charleston. D was picking up a tribal brother & getting ready to go out to the tribal land in central Ohio- luckily the truck died on it's way to Three Bears' house & D was able to limp to 3Bs before the trannie quit all together. We had it towed to the Dodge dealer in Charleston only to find out that the trannie guy there was in classes all of last week, so we won't know till this Monday how bad the damage is. Cross your fingers for us & please, send all the cheap car repair juju you can spare to us. We really, really need it!

That's the big news in our life at the moment. Other than that we're making pots & leather, watching the occasional Netflix movie & i, at least, am reading of Jill's bliss while she's visiting her new boyfriend James (aka @willia4 on twitter) in Charleston SC with a mixture of envy & trepidation. I'm glad she's having a good time, but am also a bit anxious that she may never return to carve & glaze my pots for me. Not sure what i'll do without her & am hoping i won't have to find out.

I'm off to while away some more time online.
Be well, do good work & be sure to BUY MORE POTS, either in person or via our Etsy store.

(the picture on the right is of our booth at Spoutwood this year- i liked the way the pots & leather look together. Damn but that was a great good time- if you missed it, you NEED to be there next year!)

I leave you now with a picture of my two pups, who are both looking at me with variations of this "come to bed now" stare even as i type. Goodnight all! ::calls out to pups as she wanders away:: "Save some space of the bed for me!"
