happenings around here

First, I've been under the weather for a couple of days this week.  Something absolutely knocked me out on Wednesday and Thursday.  I fought back nausea all of Wednesday, then whined (and slept) through aches and pains on Thursday.  Friday, I was back at the studio feeling about 80% of my usual self.  I very rarely come down with something and whatever this happened to be was wicked for about 24+ hours.  Yuck!

I had to beg out of visiting with friends to see the finale of American Idol--my husband went for a brief while to take the dessert we'd promised (fresh strawberries he's gotten at the local farm and ice cream--rather than the cobbler I was going to cook).  I managed to drag myself to the sofa to see the show; yes, I've gotten addicted to it in the past three seasons.  No, my pick didn't win this year--nor last year.  Oh well--their careers will move on anyway.

And speaking of musical careers, I was very glad to be fit and able to see Shawn Mullins last night here in town at The Crimson Moon.  Shawn's a fantastic singer-songwriter who's had one big hit with his song, Lullaby.  He always does a great show and last night was no exception.  A couple of shots from my phone:

He played for about  2 1/2 hours to a very enthusiastic crowd.  He's in town for two more performances--but those are already sold out.  In fact, I was lucky to get our two seats, high stools near the kitchen... but, as it turns out, great view of the stage.

Now... today, back to the studio and to work.  My studio is part of an arts tour during the second weekend of June.  I'll be joined by several colleagues who'll both be showing finished pieces and also be demonstrating for guests during the three days of the event.  This is the first year our county has been included in this tour and we have quite a few of the artists in the town and county who've signed up to participate.  Link to the website at to see what's going on all over northeast Georgia on June 11, 12 and 13!

  1. I'm so sorry you were under the weather this week. But, I'm glad you're back to normal for this holiday weekend.
