Hope ya'll are enjoying summer. Here's this weeks list of things I like:
1. Cooler weather:
It's not even cloudy, but it rained so much (it's relative) the moisture is still in the air. This is very unusual for us. It'll still be 102 today but not a dry heat. LOL
2. New adventures. My daughter and I took a pottery class a few weeks ago and it was so interesting.
Neither one of us had tried it before but she got a Groupon and the class was worth it.
The top piece is my daughter's and the bottom one is mine. I had to have a lot of help from the instructor to get a feel for handling the clay. At one point the clay flew off the stand! It was a weird experience for me but my daughter loved it and we had a lot of fun together. Of course, we invoked 1990 music from "Ghost".
We had to leave the pieces to dry at the studio for weeks and will go back to "glaze" them. It's kinda like learning to quilt in that I never knew it was such an expensive hobby or there was so much involved in making a quilt. Making pottery is definitely an art, takes time and it's not for everyone. We both were happy we tried it.
3.Specialty bakeries. I try to adhere a gluten free diet as well as soy free so when I find someone who bakes a good gluten free dessert I am a happy person. For years, I baked my own bread and desserts but since we moved 2 years ago to a much smaller home and kitchen, I would rather someone else do the baking. Usually I spend a lot of money on supermarket gluten free breads and desserts. I found a specialty bakery in Glendale, Az. who is quite reasonable, so I am picking up cookies today. I'm excited. It's the little things.
Well, this is it for today, but I hope you visit other likes at Lee Anna's post:Not Afraid of Color.
