Here's a yunomi I purchased on one of my Japan trips. I can't believe how thin this piece is! The glaze is the most beautiful, combination of rich colors - mahogany brown, deep ochre, and green. I also purchased some sake sets from this pottery. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the pottery but I do remember that an elderly woman potter who owned the pottery and she was very sweet and very gracious.
Yesterday was spent on the computer all day, except for cooking, eating, walking the dogs and other necessities of daily living.
I got most of my documents saved on my new stand alone hard drive and just as I was finishing the last few files, the blue screen of death came up; so I re-booted, and ran the anti-virus software and went to bed. Fortunately, on the third try, it finally worked and no virus showed up, so the problem is probably what we thought - a dying hard drive/computer.
This morning I'm trying to download XP last sofware download. I've gotten the blue screen of death once so this download may take a few tries. At some point today, I have to research some laptop reviews.
It's been raining all morning so my gardening today may only consists of watering seedlings and maybe transplanting the rest of the lobelias if time permits.Early this week my contractor should be delivering the completed cold frame they're building for me. Then I'll be able to get a lot of these seedlings housed safely in case of any late freezes.
Well, time to get back to work on this sick computer.
