Wow, two posts in one week!

Here's the promised photo of me in our new-to-us car, with our cool peace sign seat covers that were part of the deal!

Today, a bunch of my former and current students (some of them made the bowls last Saturday) came to the studio in the morning to help glaze the Empty Bowls bowls. I loaded them into the kiln for the glaze firing; will unload on Monday and get them to the community services center for their Tuesday event.

Some of the bowls getting ready to be put in the kiln.
Afterwards, I came back home, and Robert made us grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, and we have been watching soccer all day long.  I did do a load of laundry.  The MLS Cup starts in about 45 minutes - I'm not sure who to cheer for, so I think I'll just sit back and enjoy the game.

I really need to finish painting the woodwork around the windows.  Sheesh! Seriously, it's been five days just to paint this one window!  I'm hopeless.  My excuse is that I can only paint when it's light, because it's hard to see at night even with the lamp on.  (hahahaHAHAHAHAhahahaa) I only need to do touch-ups!  Okay maybe I'll finish tonight when I'm watching the game.

The top photo shows the light-green color of the woodwork;
we, or I should say I am painting it off-white instead.

    "Absolutely love those seat covers. Hope you are not getting hit with snow. Hudson is not too bad at the moment; I am hoping it stays this way!"

    "Hello Elle! Those covers make me so happy! We probably have an inch of snow. I spent most of my life on the east side of Cleveland, so snow here is nothing! I must admit even though I do like winter weather, I sure don't mind not living in the snow belt anymore :)"

    "Seat covers of awesomeness! Guess I missed an entry. Glad you came back. Painting in the right light is key. I now have a closet door trim that is mat on one section. Shiny on the rest. "

    Thank you!
    And yes, with my bad eyes, I can barely discern where I painted and where I didn't! We have new curtains so I hope to get this project done soon, then we can put a tree up on the table and truly start this holiday season. xox"

    Yeah, me too - I don't understand though why I hate it so much.
