MAde it back today, in good time with no bad weather! Stopped for muffins in Madoc and brief catch up with fav staff persons. Of course had to eat one on way to Belleville! Ambrosia! Also picked up container of quinoa/sweet potato, etc salad for Robin. Slept for about 3 hours after arriving. I had stayed up late last night to finish a novel to return to library.

Major glitch in potting life when kiln refused to turn on top elements on Thurs. Phoned Mike who came at 10 am on Friday and spent an hour dismantling the control panel... Came in with the offending object... I came to terms with - this firing is on hold for awhile. Oh,well! The first firing was lovely and I brought the pots here; I can stash them under the DR table until I have enough for a showing.

Had a nice very visit with Mike about ageing and dying - doesn't sound so nice but it was helpful for me to hear about how he and Lyn had dealt with 3 very aged parents - in their 90s to close to 100. Helpful for me at 86 to get a better idea of what I might be facing... Small thing: throw rugs; Lyn pointed out this hazard a couple years ago. I changed to more stable slippers but this week I note that I have been rumpling the rugs - not picking my feet up enough. Took note and will be wary. I really hate to give up the colourful little rugs... I would hate a fall even more. That could greatly clutter my life in a most unpleasant fashion!

Just after I got here, text from Mike that he had found part on line and should he order it? No... Then as brain cleared - Yes! He may have it fixed when I return in 10 days!
