Vivika Heino salt glazed bowl
Here's a darling little salt glazed bowl by my late friend and glaze teacher Vivika Heino.
Our daughter and husband left this morning and Jim and I have been busy all day getting the house back in order and getting back into our nice, relaxed, quiet routine.
My friend McKenzie Smith called. He's doing a workshop this month at Penland and we're hoping we can touch base before he heads back to Florida.
I spent some time this morning transplanting a large amount of snapdragons and brought them and others upstairs and into the kitchen greenhouse window.
The rest of the day has been spent dealing with this dying laptop. I've managed to get on for minutes at a time to download important document and other files to my new, stand alone hard drive and I have most things copied now. My son-in-law the computer whiz thinks my hard drive is badly damaged and this laptop is old enough and used so much that a new one is in the offing. I just wish Window 7 was out already because I don't want to use the latest Windows operating system. Maybe I can pick up an inexpensive, small laptop with XP and then get a better one after Windows 7 comes out at the end of the year.
Tomorrow morning I'm going to have to get on line and see if I can find some useful laptop reviews.
My email is very backed up and I haven't even had time to check out my favorite blogs. :-(
In the next few days I need to take more photos of my pottery collection to share on the blog - so much to do and so little time!
