After the Tahoe trip, I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend at home to do a bit of cleaning, gardening, and working in the studio. I spent most of Saturday cleaning like a mad woman, from the living room to the bedroom. Afterwards, I made time for the studio and glazed several bowls mainly to test Amaco Velvet and Duncan Concepts underglazes at cone 10. If you are interested in the results, let me know. I will post them. On Sunday morning, Greg and I hopped on the scooter and made a quick run to our favorite breakfast place, Plums Cafe. The food was scrumptious as usual. Blessed with a full stomach, we headed back home to tend the garden. Boy did it need some tending! We spent hours dead heading, trimming, cutting, and sweeping. By evening, I sat on the swing with a cool beer in hand, enjoying our little Eden in the middle of the California suburban. We then went for a little run and had healthy smoothie for dinner. As the sun was setting, I went back into the studio to throw a few plates and a couple of mugs. What a perfect weekend! It was just what I needed to rejuvenate.
