I mentioned I took a ceramics class and that I fell in love. That is true, but it wasn’t because the class was a walk in the park. I spent an absurd amount of time in that studio on a few occasions. The fact that I fell in love with ceramics despite the long hours, hard work, and sore muscles is what makes me excited. Just today I switched around my fall schedule to fit in a pottery class in which I will learn more about wheel throwing. My imagination is running wild with thoughts of having a studio with my own wheel and my own kiln and a dog at my feet…
P.S. Jeff took these pictures on the longest day in the studio. It’s funny to see what my hands look like from another perspective.

An anniversary dinner. At home. Because it’s been far too long since I was able to be in my kitchen for fun, with wine and music and a fridge full of ingredients. Note Jeff’s face in the second photo. That is a first taste face. There was caramelized chicken with mushrooms sauteed in butter and white wine and herbs from the balcony. There was garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. And after a nap there was the best strawberry shortcake (mother’s recipe), with fresh whipped cream with a cuppa night coffee. Over the weekend there was a date to see Casablanca in a theater downtown prefaced by coconut ice cream.
This past month I have been schooling furiously. I took a ceramics class and fell in love and I took a college algebra class and am happy to say I never have to take a math class again. I am patiently awaiting my grades. It is good to be back to regular life. Happy summertime!

Sketching and being in my kitchen take up most of my free time these days. I like it this way. Learning to prioritize and adjust my days so they are rounded out with both hard work and fun. It isn’t easy for a procrastinator like me, but sometimes I enjoy a challenge.
I made this little book of seasons for my final project in my Intro to Craft class.
I transferred some photos of mine onto fabric (which was really fun and the first time I had ever done that). The Spring photo is of some tulips in a Savannah square. The Summer photo is of Jeff swimming. The Autumn photo is of a bright red tree on a Savannah sidewalk. The Winter photo is of my pretty parents playing in the snow in the 90s. The front and back covers were done around 3am the morning before it was due while watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Right now the book sits on our mantle becauese, well, I like it :)
Look at Savannah these days…I’m so proud. It’s turning into a foggy, multi-colored, acorn covered wonderland.
Side Note: Sooo…let’s just say, I have been busier with school than I would like to be. And I have a cold. And I have been wishy washy with decision making in terms of my education. But I am excited about next semester at school and the holidays are so so close. The fall foliage only makes me happier.
p.s. This adorable man has a birthday today. He taught me so many things and I miss him everyday. Happy Birthday, Dad!!! xoxo
