This is what “needs” to get done. May or may not get it all done. Will have to enlist assistance from LunaGirl to get everything acomplished.
Coming home after a long long weekend and sleeping in our own bed again. (We have gotten really spoiled with the Temper-pedic mattress) The dogs were so happy to see us and haven’t left our sides for one minute. I actually never got anything done today that I was supposed to do as Mr. HC and I took these major power naps when we got back and watched a movie that we hadn’t seen in years. I will have to put my nose to the grindstome tomorrow, but for now . . . wonderful weekend and wonderful home to come back too. Mr. HC and I both feel happy and complete.
May the best of your past be the worst of your future.
I would wish this for everybody!!
shop where I saw so many awesome things and my mind is reeeeeeeeling with ideas!!
A beautiful trip to Sedona today, Cafe Latte at Starbucks and sending “THE MOMS” home with a super big bag of homemade spaghetti sauce because they were raving about my cooking!
Today we went to Jerome which is a place I love to go, especially on the bikes. However, we were in the car as we had the Moms with us today. One of my favorite stores there is Nellie Bly which has the most awesome kaleidescopes I could ever have imagined. I love that store. Out front, for years there has been this one HUGE kaleidescope that is actually for sale. The price tag on this bad boy is $8,000. I was excited to show it to “THE MOMS” and MR. HC overheard me taking about it evidently with great gusto. He told me that he never knew that I had wanted it, but did I realize that he could make for me? I had never thought about it, but he is correct. Mr. HC is always welding and fabricating something or other. It is usually related to some car function though so I never thought about asking him to make one of these puppies. We took lots of pictures and are going to design one of our very own.
I am attaching a picture of the front of the store, and the kaleidescope os at the front door, although this isn’t the greatest picture
Mr. HC and I made tentative plans to create an outdoor bedroom at the Lake Montezuma House.
I am happy!
I figured out a meal plan for all the days that “The MOMS” will be here and bought all the grocerties I needed. Went up early to Lake Montezuma and turned on the heat, put the groceries away and had everything ready when Mr. HC got there with THE MOMS.
Being ready for a long weekend up north in my own little get away made me feel happy and complete
I even found crap up there that I tossed this weekend!
Mr. HC’s Moms were here for the long weekend. (His Mom and her wife) They have never been to our Lake Montezuma House, so we took them there for the weekend. On Sunday we took them the Jerone, Cottonwood and Clarksdale. On Monday we took them to Sedona.
This was new for us, to actually haul out of town visitors to the “cabin” for the sole purpose of just hanging out, but it worked out well and was actually quite fun and relaxing. I think this could work out for future vists. I like seeing Mr. HC be able to relax and his Mom and I gushed all over him all weekend long. His ego should be sufficiently built up right now!
I haven’t worn one in ages, but I actually LIKE to wear hats. This is very similar to the one I got. Mr. HC and I picked it out when we were in Sedona this past weekend.
He said I was a cute Hippiechick!! A cute Hippiechick who wears a hat no matter what anyone else may think or say . . . she wears it because she likes it!
This is the third of the series and as far I as I knowm the last one that has been written. This thing I did like about this series was the relationship between the main character and her husband. They have been married for 30 years, but still clearly are each other’s one and only, although they call each other names like “old goat” and such!
Overview: When a building inspector is found drowned in a bucket of liquid clay slip, potter Carolyn Emerson’s husband Bill is the prime suspect. It’s up to Carolyn to clear his name and not let the real killer give her the slip
This is the second in the series by Melissa Glazer. I enjoyed it more than the first book.
Overview: When the body of a new potter with a mysterious past is found in Carolyn Emerson’s raku firing pit, she calls upon her studio’s pottery club, The Firing Squad, to dig up evidence and crack the case.
This was the first is a series by Melissa Glazer (Clay and Crime mysteries). It certainly wasn’t the best I’ve ever read, but still did manage to keep my attention. I think that the first in a series is often not the best unless the writer is really excellent as it takes time to develop the characters. None the less, this book also included directions for a pottery project.
Overview: In Maple Ridge, Vermont, Carolyn Emerson planned to ease into her golden years running her paint-your-own-pottery shop, Fire at Will. She never expected to uncover a dead body in the shop, and she certainly didn’t plan on a drop in live clientele.
Now it’s up to Carolyn and her shop’s pottery club, The Firing Squad, to help clear her name. But can she find a killer and more customers without her own brush with death?
Yikes this is “D” day or more appropriately “M” day
The Moms are coming!!! (Mr. HC’s Mom and her wife are coming for the long weekend.) I need to get my hippie-ass in gear. Much to do before this evening when they arrive. I probably will not be online until Tuesday when they leave so I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
Love to all xoxoxox
1) Grocery Shopping (plan menus on the fly) 2) Clean this house (at least the places the Moms will be walking through) 3) Notify clients I am unavailable until Tuesday
4) Get to Lake Montezuma early to turn on heat and change sheets etc
5) Get information about wine tours in Verde Valley 6) Try not to go crazy I’m good 7) Clean the freakin’ car
idea. I looked on Craigslist and there are three people selling bases only for less than $100. They are asking $25. (kind of rusty and is the one pictured here), $45 (Awhatukee) and $50 (Scottsdale). Of course the one listed for $25 is locationally closest to me (within 3 miles but they are not responding to me) There are some people also selling the bases with the cabinetry as well for around $100+, but I think I want only the base as it is going to be outside. The cabinetry would get ruined, if it is not already.
I emailed the $25 people twice and never got a response. So I emailed the $45 guy last night. He emailed back this morning that he still has it. I cannot get it until Tuesday though. Mr HC’s Moms are coming today and we are going north to the Lake Montezuma House and won’t be back until Tuesday. I don’t have enough time today to get it before I have to leave. I have to go up early to turn on the heat and get groceries etc before they arrive.
I hope this guy still has the base when I get back on Tuesday. I didn’t care that the first one was rusty as it is going to be a table on the back patio anyway, but the not rusty one is really pretty too. I have big plans for this baby!
Thank you to everyone who planted the seed in my brain!!!
and I am so going to do it!!!
