morgaina: (Amby)
I installed much needed linoleum in the bathroom this weekend. Amby must think I'm incompetent. I couldn't get rid of him, he was right there in my way whenever I tried to do anything. He occasionally gave me advise in the form of putting his wet nose on bare skin when I wasn't expecting it. Once the advise was so cold I leaped up and cracked my head on a cupboard. He also barked hysterically whenever I used the vacuume cleaner to clean up bits and pieces. This was probably a comment on how seldom I vacuume in general. Then he left the ultimate criticism, a puddle on the new floor.

I did not end up throwing yesterday. When I walked into the studio it was obvious I was going to have to glaze and load a kiln, about out of space due to much bisqueware. So I did that although I really wanted to throw and won't have time to for several weeks :-(. My studio time is going to be spent mixing glazes, applying glazes, loading the kiln, and firing. Still a good time, but throwing is the very best. In addition, I wanted to make some cooking pots to bring to Baron's Ball.

My day job is M-Th so I usually have Fridays off, which would have given me enough time to do what I want in there, but my Mandt trainings are on Fridays for awhile. At least I will be paid for taking the training and that will provide me with a little extra money. Who knows maybe I'll even learn something.

I raked a crap ton (channeling Freeway Diva again ;-)) of leaves yesterday. But there are still plenty more and the tree looks still full. I vowed years ago to only plant evergreens unless I plant the little trees far far away from the yard.

It's so strange having all my children so far away.

Things were better at school. The bosses’ boss heard about and witnessed some of the things that were going on in the worst offending residence and demanded the director of that residence take action. Some changes have started, if very slowly. I only had one boy with extreme behaviors, the rest seemed to be trying although they still sometimes dropped the ‘f’ bomb and had attitude, attitude, attitude. And the aforementioned kid will face some consequences. Rest of the classes went quite well, even said they loved the lesson I presented.
So all this change happened the same time I began to meditate and work on my attitude.
Has chewed up my most important embroidery tool, my fabric pen, also a couple of skeins of thread. Has got hold of….something, which has been chewed up and spread all over the floor. My sister came over for a short time and he made a total fool of himself leaping around because he was so glad to see her. He needs to be back at Moot playing with Grisjean, Yakul, Carter, and Mattie.
will go out to the studio in a few minutes. Looking very much forward to throwing a variety of pots in the Oregon Red clay. Hoping it is warm enough that I don’t have to start a fire in the studio stove to work there. Looking forward to the studio and planning on what I am going to do is how I got through the school week.
Argh, a mess. Yard also. I have to do much leaf raking. I want to make some peach jam this weekend too.
Thinking about the Artisan’s Retreat at Baron’s Ball. Hoping to get people acquainted. I am hearing that some Inlands folk say they don’t know how to document subject x, when I know of people planning on attending the Artisan’s retreat who actually *do* document subject x. That will be exciting to see those connections happen.
Concerned about MOAS non-reporting in the Inlands. Sounds like there will be consequences if they don’t. I have tried very hard to encourage their reporting. I’ve been doing the Inlands Reporting Deputy Job so long it might be easy to blow me off. Possibly there will be more respect if the word comes from Kingdom or Society.
