Wednesday's photo is from my yoga class. My friend Vanessa brought her 2 month old baby for the first time and Dalia from Golden Lotus Ayurveda taught yoga and kept the baby happy. It was lovely.

Today's photo is of my mug filled with tea made with coriander, cumin and fennel. This is good for me as I have a pitta constitution. This is entirely related to my studio practice as yoga and ccf tea help keep me flexible and sane.

Not a crazy day in the studio today. Unloading the kiln after the 3rd refiring (ski hill mugs - don't ask), loading it up with glazed ware, cleaning up the bottoms of fired pots, wrapping pots for shipment, a small order of 8 mugs and 1 set of baby dishes thrown, visited with my new friend Fern who came in looking for fimo clay and ended up staying and chatting about life and everything for an hour. It was very enjoyable. Fiddling about with my scanner and photoshop program trying to get my decals just the way I want them. Checking items drying in the damp cupboard, smoothing and fixing seams. Chatting with customers. Playing with the dog. Listening to the CBC and wondering if the sun is ever going to shine again.
