Okay, so I figured things out...
I am addicted to throwing on the wheel. I finally feel like I have some grasp on it, some control. It's pretty exciting to me. We started by making teabowl after teabowl, then moved on to mugs, then bowls and our next project will be lided jars. I can not get enough. I have the finished teabowls and mugs so I can share some pictures. My bowls still need to be fired.
I came home Thursday night to find Michael and his girlfriend carving pumpkins. I've been so consumed with school and computer repair that I hadn't even thougt about it. I was glad they had the Halloween spirit. So I grabbed a pumpkin and got down to it.
I am especially happy to have Michael HOME and really seeming to get back to his old self. I don't see that meaness or anger in his eyes any more. It is so great to have him back. I can't say it enough.
