Week's End and 2 Videos

Here I am again. Ha. What?  I know I'm a fickle blogger.  It's not like the old days when I'd post 2-3 times a DAY! Crazy.  I just need to get on here and see what happens I guess.  I think I have expectations.  That can mess things up.

This past week did not pan out as I had hoped in the studio.  I wanted to get some serious work done.  As it so happened I busted my hump at CrossFit on Monday and Tuesday and by Wednesday I was so sore and sick (I think I caught a stomach bug) that I was wiped out.  I spend most of Thursday on the couch but I did manage to get some pots slipped and decorated in short time spurts when I was feeling okay.  I even shot a couple of short videos of me making bowls.

I love throwing with soft clay.  It centers so easily, it responds to a light touch and the finished pot seems so much more organic and not over worked.  Soft clay paired with a treadle or kick wheel is just perfection to me.

If you're interested in how life is after the Whole 30 I'd say it's going really well.  Sarah and I have continued to eat healthy and to cook most of our meals at home.  We did have several meals out this past week as we celebrated several special occasions with friends.  Today I went to the grocery though and stocked up for the week.  I'm all set to make meals every night this week, hopefully with leftovers for lunches.

Okay, well that's it for now.  I'll post some pics tomorrow of some pots and let ya know how my Monday goes.  Cheers.
