Nurse, Potter, Weaver, Baker....

I am determined to not skip a month on this here is what I have been up to.

Greg slipped on the ice 2 weeks ago which resulted in a broken knee and wrist.  No weight bearing for at least 6 weeks so my nursing chores have been the priority.

But January is also the annual Empty Bowl event for Empower House.  In the past I have managed 100 but this year with life, 26 will have to do.

Then of course it wouldn't be winter without a little of the white stuff.  We only have 2 or 3 inches but the cold reminds me of my high school years in Iowa.  Poor Layla loves the snow but the cold is just too much for her.  I have had to carry her in two mornings when her knees gave out.  She will be 13 next month! Once it warms up she will be moving much better.

Cold weather means COOKIES.

And of course with a laid up husband, weaving in the same room is the best option.

I have pottery orders to fill.  I am hoping that next week once Greg and I have a rythmn set I can go out back to the studio for 1-2 hour sessions.  Maybe a baby monitor is the answer?

Stay warm everyone!

January = hibernation!
hope the mending starts soon and goes quickly, poor thing! When Gerry is in the house and I am out in my studio we use ichat, works well for us, or a couple of walkie talkies :)
Happy snow days!

Oh dear! Poor hubby -- poor you! I hope you get into a rhythm soon. It's hard to be laid up and hard to care for someone who is.
Love the bowls. Love the weaving!
If you have IPhones you can just text each other? Maybe not with a broken wrist....hmmm, yeah, baby monitors would work.
Hope the healing happens fast.
Take care!

Poor Greg! He's had some tough luck with the falling down stuff. Give him my best wishes.
