I’m so confused. All day it has felt like Sunday. It’s bad enough that I work from home so I seem to get confused all the time but it’s worse when there’s a holiday involved. I just realized that it’s really Friday and I had not posted today so I thought I’d check in.
Like at most all US homes there’s a lot of eating going on around here. Also lots of football watching even though 2 of the 3 games yesterday were boring. We had Thanksgiving dinner with just the 2 of us and Chris cooked a turkey with a plaid bacon wrapping. My contribution to dinner was weaving the bacon. That bird was freaking delicious!
After dinner we went to Newport News to visit with my two brothers and watch a little football. All in all it was a lovely day. I even finished the stitching on my Joy postcards before lunch.
After we got home last night I got started on the third (and final) postcard design. These are images that I made in letterpress class earlier this year. Last night I cut out all of the ovals and now I need to fuse everything in place and do a little stitching.
I did not go anywhere near a store today. All of my shopping is online. I hate to shop in general, but especially in December. It completely robs me of any holiday happiness. I did, however, go pick up my new kiln shelf from my friend Susan. She took a class at The Kiln Doctor Saturday and saved me a bundle on shipping.
The Kiln Doctor is a very nice pottery supply place in Front Royal, Virginia. They even hooked me up with a few broken shelves that I can cut into strips to use as kiln dams for pattern bars.
I will not be posting tomorrow. Chris was offered free tickets to attend the Commonwealth Cup in Charlottesville, VA. I haven’t been to a live Virginia Tech game in years but tomorrow is special as it’s Frank Beamer’s last regular season game as head coach so I really wanted to go. I don’t think college football will ever see another coach last 29 years at the same school. Certainly not 29 years without controversy or sanctions! Hopefully the boys can bring home the cup one last time for Frank.
I’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming Monday!
