Work was good this morning. Had a couple of folks to work on, took out trash and recycling, etc. Did a bit more in the garage today. Scott painted the Swiss Coffee on the ceiling. Still some more painting to do on the last wall, around all the glass blocks.

It was nice to not have to drive from Gt. Barrington up to Ashfield to set up -- we'd still be there right now, not at home on the PC. But kind of strange too... I've been working at AFF for 7-10 years (sorry, would have to check my records to know for sure). And I do wish I could have come to the realization sooner that things just weren't working out. At least I can afford to make up the monetary side of things to the scholarship fund, but there are a few folks who'll be looking for me and wondering where I went. I do hate to disappoint. I know it's the right decision, but that doesn't make it any less icky.

Meantime, have moved forward on two projects, and considering a new lesser project -- llama with a wreath around its neck. Should make a good holiday card, I think.

One of the projects requires research, so in addition to web research I have some books on order. Some should arrive next week, and some are from England, so they could end up being a nice Christmas present to myself. Medieval English pottery :) And yes, I will definitely be showing them to my friend Odbald -- maybe we can get some nice 14th c. pottery ready for Crossroads at Canterbury. He's apparently looking into getting a wheel, which would be a lot of fun. I've never thrown anything higher than 6-7", but there are some nice jugs and cups that look really cool and aren't being made -- at least around here. Of course, I should get some books on Italian and French stuff too, but the budget can only handle so much at a time, so I'll have to see what Odbald's collected so far, and what I can find online.

Tonight I should check my supply of sugarhouse magnets and bring them up on a cookie sheet, in case the folks want to carry them at their booth. I should have plenty, so then I can set up the spinning wheel and do a bit of spinning -- my wild purple/blue Romney :)

But first, dinner!
