Seriously derailed shoulder by trying to inappropriately move 20 kg boxes of clay yesterday, Impacted ability to complete pots today. In 3 hours I managed to have 22 mugs and one teapot to dry out for firing stage. Five more teapots were beyond my energy. The pain/discomfort is tiring and almost constant right now. I had been almost pain free for over a week. We learn by these things. Wonder what I will do wrong next! Now, if I could just find a comfortable position to just sit. Ahh, better.

While pulling handles, I improved the comfort zone by moving tools to better locations. a few inches made a difference. So I was able to complete the task.

So, today we had breakfast at a little cafe, then I sat with R while he talked to me and on the phone, trying to sort out a situation, then I drove to the country, interneted for a couple hours (I'll just check the email...), worked in studio for 3 hours and drove back to city, cooked supper and ate mine. Now TV: Dragon's Den and Titanic. Hope R gets home before midnight.

Yesterday, I picked up those pots and obtained more animal food from the dog rescue friend but no stove wood. "We don't have any." when R phoned. I'll have to ask around more.

Ah, Linn: A happy dance indeed! I did not realize how stressed I was until the tears of relief came - at the gas station this morning when the Quebecois staff exulted about the election results! We had spoken before as my bumper stickers from four years ago proclaim me. Oh joy!
