This post has nothing to do with football, dances, or parades. It's about Jeff being home from S. Korea! I am so glad to have him back. Don't get me wrong, I love me some alone time but 10 days is plenty. His flight arrived in Greensboro at 11:20 pm on Thursday and we were home by 12:30, plenty of time to go to bed and have a respectable nights sleep. But no, not us! We spilled the contents of his baggage on the living room floor and acted like it was Christmas morning.
He never has a lot of extra room in his bags so everything he brings back is small. Aside from lots of wonderful little tea bowls, there were paint brushes and mishima stamps from Insadong. I had asked for a Buddha and Jeff bought me a tiny little bronze one.
This little charm gave me a good laugh...
After about 3 hours of sleep we awoke Friday morning and started to pack for the CCM Pottery Festival in Charlotte. We got around 5 hours of sleep Friday night and were on the road a little after 6am. Totally worth the effort (thankfully). The show was great, sales were up from last year, and the weather was beautiful until 4pm when the show closed. We packed in the rain and our clothes were soaked but we didn't care, we had money in our pockets.
Today we will take it slow. Jeff is catching up on sleep and this afternoon we will mix a new batch of shino and do some glazing. We have a kiln load of pigs and sinks to fire this week.
