Home in time for Halloween
Over the weekend I realized that we would be home in time for Halloween. I have always loved Halloween, and I love to carve a jack-o-lantern. I also realized that I hadn't bought a pumpkin yet and considered getting one in New Hampshire and bringing it home with me. When you drive through the countryside in New England, there are pumpkin patches everywhere. I decided I would wait and get one when we returned to North Carolina... after all, the grocery stores all had huge bins of them before we left. Needles to say, I couldn't find a pumpkin of any size. They were all GONE. I had to make do with my cheesy store bought jack-o-lanterns. But let's face it, isn't Halloween all about cheesy?
Yesterday was spent packing orders to be shipped. I have a few more to do this morning and then it's back to clay. I am still not sure how my shoulder will handle it, but I am going to attempt small bowls to start. Before we left I did some slab dishes. Slab work is nice and easy on your body but it goes too slow for me. I like the speed of the wheel!
I hope your Halloween was happy and a little (or a lot) cheesy!
