Weekend Guests

My friend Abigail is coming to visit.  Or so she says...I thought she would have gotten in by now. I guess a drive from Ann Arbor is tough to time.

Last time we saw her Javi was about 4 months old and just about as tough a little 4 month old as there is...a kid with colic isn't too fun.  Anyways...he'll be 6 in clearly, it's been a while.

I did get some more work done in the studio and was all set to upload some pictures that I took last night but I think Evangelina took the camera with her to the beach just now.  

I feel like I haven't been blogging enough...definitely not enough pottery-related blogging but that's just the way it is right now.  I'll definitely be doing some food blogging later today because I have quite the feast planned.  Littleneck clams steamed with white wine and garlic, oysters on the half-shell...maybe the quarter-shell...I've never shucked them at home before so hopefully it all works out, and finally some pasta with crabmeat.  Abigail and her husband Steven are coming in from Michigan so I thought I would go with as much New England seafood as I could find for night number one.

I finished up most everything in the studio this week but then made more and have a lot of "chasing" of plastic to do.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do in Austin...things are going to dry much faster than I'm used to.  This week I made a bunch of mugs and left them uncovered overnight to put handles on them in the morning.  They weren't ready in the morning so I left them out all day and overnight again....they still weren't ready until the following afternoon. when I get the camera back and probably some food blogging along the way tonight.

How'd your shucking go? I've been shucking too... check out my blog. You're platter's on it. Oh, and I got splashed by a wave which went into my wader pocket and shorted out my phone. I just got a new one today. Off to eat some oysters. I'm going to need some help.
