I do not close up Beaver for the Winter; well, not this year though there will come a time, I suppose when it will be necessary. The last couple years: the wood shed so I can get at the wood! And the roof over the walkway to the studio so I can get in without carrying 5 gallon buckets of hot water to melt the ice. I do not Fill the buckets.

Buckets seem to have a way of finding other uses so I just realized I have no more empty buckets but I am taking veggies to Dupont in two buckets - tomorrow! I have soap dishes to take to Rita and will visit for a week or so - to recover from the drive, then I hope to get back.

I have triaged a quantity of things to take to Dupont and the car is full and will require another trip. MY son and his new partner(!) are hoping to be at Dupont the week before Christmas and want to be able to give him things (memory things) that he might want. And I asked him to bring the family photo albums to the visit so I can view them once more. He has had them about 5 years.

Two glaze firings completed. Some for the Shop and some for Rita. Will leave a box for Pat or Les top pick up if they want more pottery - mostly small $10 pieces which sell well. So today is rest and work as has become the necessary way of life.

It has been beautiful here and R has been getting pots done as he does not feel he must go home. We need to work on that, or I do so he does not feel pressured - and can get more done.
