What are y'all up to this week? Last week I did not have a good or productive week at all... this week things are looking better! In ceramics, I'm getting ready to start painting the March mug, the unicorn... I'm handbuilding some test pieces for the next HaldeCrate... Working on some things for a show I'm doing the first weekend of March (that will also be a new line in the shop after that)... In soap, I think I've gotten everything restocked, now, except for the sample sets. I need to make some more of those... In yarn, I really...

I can hardly remember what I thought on Monday that my week would be like... I know I had a plan, but... pff! Plans! We don't need no stinkin' plans! Hahahaha! Seriously, though, this week has gone a little off the rails - I knew Monday I was going to take the day off to spend the day with a friend I've known for 30 years - we lost a mutual, long-time friend last week, and it was a complete surprise and we're both a little gutted... so we wanted to get together and raise a glass. But then I...

And just like that, January is almost over! I don't know who decided THAT could be a thing. I still kind of feel like it's October of last year, haha. Sigh. It's not just me, either... a friend on Facebook yesterday mentioned she'd just gotten her Christmas tree taken down. I'm glad it's not just me, feeling time slipping past so quickly. Don't think I'm missing the irony of posting about what I'm working on when I start the post off saying how busy everyone around me feels.....! So then. On to what I'm doing this week....! In ceramics, I...

Whoops! I was all set to write this yesterday morning as usual, but then got a call from my doctor's office that they could see me right away, so I dropped everything and rushed in so I could complain about how everything OTC I was taking wasn't helping, do I have bronchitis again....? And guess what, y'all! I have bronchitis again! With a side dish of sinus infection! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! A two-fer! At least it's not like that time I had bronchitis and pneumonia at the same time... I really wanted to throw myself under a bus then. ANYWAY. Yesterday's graphic!...

How's your week going? I was having a great, productive week until yesterday afternoon when I sort of coughed a little bit and said to myself, "hmmm, I think my throat is a little sore"... this morning as I write this I have a full-on massive sore throat and congestion. Last night I had a lot of aches that I don't have this morning, though, so hopefully a good night's sleep (and NyQuil) and if I take it easy today....? I'll be fine? I don't have time or inclination to be sick! (Well, who ever does, right?!) In ceramics, I...
