many things make a post
i can see!

before the knitting

For the next few days, the most exciting content I have is of the "hey! look what I found in a box!" variety. ou have been warned.

Before I learned to knit, I learned to throw pots. On a wheel. With, like, dirt and stuff.

I found my efforts.

The blue dish pictured below isn't falling off of the window ledge. it just has a really unstable bottom, which would be a great band name.

I never did improve much beyond this point because, frankly, I gave up. Pottery isn't very portable and has too many upfront costs for my needs. I like to buy well made dishware, etc., but will not be making it myself in the foreseeable future. Still, it's a kick in the head to find my lumpen efforts.

Oh - and the books totally bred like rabbits while they were packed away.

This is only a smidgen of the collection. I'm starting to think that I might need a 12-step program.

Still got a copy of this in those boxes?

You want to have your way with me in the hot desert sun, don't you?

Man, I still love that show.

I still have one flung pots.

Love the built-in.

A 12 step program...or a Kindle. I'm getting one for my birthday (I read on the go and with a bad neck, lugging around books can cause problems, so really, it's medical equipment) and I'm hoping that it'll keep the book collection contained. I'm not getting rid of any of the paper, but this should restrict expansion somewhat.

Nah, you just need more bookshelves. (And I am totally envious of your new built-in ones) My house has a dearth of bookshelves, which does not help with The Clutter.

Ravish me like I've never been ravished before!

nice lopsided blue bowl! You should put that on counter edges when company comes over. Reminds me of my mom's creations in heaviness- but most of her "earthenware" looks like things that came out of the ocean a few million years ago. I should show you her "sea monster hippo bowl". Priceless family heirloom...

The built-ins are one of the things that sold us on the house. Now I just have to figure out how to get everything in there. Feh.

Kindle is a great idea -- but I just can't commit. Sad that I have such issues about my electronics. It took me two years to buy an iPod.
