Every one needs a little time 'away from it all'! You might think that being retired would make that less so, but it just might be even more needful. You see, your days can become very similar. It's not that you want to do differently exactly, but a change is a real treat. When my Mom and I drove down to Tucson, she confided to me that she had looked forward to the trip just as a change from the usual.
For me, my ceramics is one of those things. I look forward all week to my classes and miss them during the breaks. This is a haul of bisque ware that had been fired at the same time. I am very happy with everything here, though the glazing wasn't always as successful. I will try to get a photo of them fired.
|yes, the pitcher has a mustache... it was fun!|
|Here are some syrup/gravy pitchers I made to give to our former missionaries.|
We had planned a beach trip with one of our missionaries who has never seen the ocean. Well, he went and got engaged...silly boy... and found he had other priorities for his time and money. We decided we still wanted to go so we headed off to San Diego for a couple of days. It was wonderful and relaxing.
