We're back from our long weekend with College Girl. It was really nice. What a great school! We did more in 3 days than we've done in months. Highlights included lots of music, coffehouse goodness, pumpkin pancakes, thrift and antique shopping, Autumn leaves galore, and an improv troop. Fun, fun, fun!
Now it's back to
work play with cloth and paint and clay.
Today's table isn't too terribly full. I've got to finish two pieces-- a Julie Butterfly and a rather odd commisioned piece. I've never made a pig before.
Here's the (blurry) start of him.
We had a few pigs when I was a kid (real ones), so the shape of them isn't too foreign. Piggy nose, piggy ears, chubby cheeks. . . he's turning out pretty darn sweet (if I do say so myself).
Also looking around cyberspace for some Halloweeny food recipes today trying to put Sunday's menu together. We're having a couple of friends over and handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. I have absolutely no idea how much candy to get. We've never lived somewhere that gets trick-or-treaters before. Still have to make a costume for the boy kid (who still hasn't decided what he wants to be) and carve a Jack-O-Lantern or two.
Only 5 more days til the big night!
What are you doing for Halloween?
