good things

Although it has only been a month since election day, it seems likes years.  I try to post here, and when I'm about to hit 'publish' something else happens to talk about; I make changes/additions and then it all starts again, and I got so frustrated I just took my blog down because I was just, well, so frustrated!

He'll never be my president. He continues to be a disgrace, a danger, and an embarrassment.

But onto good things:

A few weeks ago, someone hit me from behind while I was driving to meet a friend for coffee in our little town. I was okay for the most part.  The car was totaled.

Well that ended up a good thing, because one of the students I am currently teaching was selling her car, and with the insurance money from the guy who hit me, it nearly covered the cost of buying her car!! And it is in great shape so I can actually go visit Denise, and my sister M in Pittsburgh (M and I are doing to the protest in Washington DC the day after inauguration day) and other family and friends now!! I can drive out of our little town without worrying that the vehicle will break down!  WHOOT!!!

Darn, I meant to take a photo of the cute little thing.  It's a Ford Focus, and it reminds me of my beloved Honda Civic hatchback.

Other good things:  Some former and current students of mine got together last Saturday and we made a bunch of bowls for the community services center here.  The Empty Bowls project!  This Saturday we'll glaze them all. We made a total of 22+!

good things
Sara, Swapna, Becky, Mary, Kristi and me!
Oh and one last thing - please feel free to follow me on Instagram or on my art page on Facebook.  I post there a lot more than on my blog. (Links are in the side column, I think)

Hope everyone is doing well.  It's currently 22 degrees here! And I'm off to teach a pottery class - so I better get off the computer.

    "Oh boy, I thought I was locked out or something. Now I know why I couldn't get here. I too would like to send you some financial support for the protest - my little way of participating. Send info to Lovely pots and I'll try to catch you on FB"

    "Well, although the accident must have really shaken you up if it managed to total your car, it seems to have had a silver lining in terms of funding the next, more reliable model. Hurrah!"

    "Hello Vanessa: Fortunately, I wasn't hurt in the accident - I did have a little soreness and headache for a day or two, but nothing serious. Yes, out of bad came good! xox"

    "The same thing happened to my daughter - someone ran a red light and totaled her very beat-up old car. She and the baby weren't hurt but how easily it could have gone another way made me totally sick. She also got enough to get a much better and more reliable car. So, I'm really happy for you with a big side of thankful you're ok!"
