good morning! rob worked from home yesterday so the computer was occupied all day. he is working from home one day a week--usually Tuesdays. I think he wants to transition to two days at some point. I really like it when he works from home--the whole day has a much more relaxed feel. I sleep in a little, make breakfast a little later, and I have the time to make something that may take a little longer. we have lunch together too. and since he usually starts working between 5 and 6 am (doesn't have the morning commute to deal with) he can knock off a little earlier than usual. yesterday when he got done, he came out and sat down, and I laid down on the couch--and we both woke up about an hour later! it was that kind of a "sleepy" day--cloudy and chilly and rainy as all get out. but it was very nice to just have that calm, quiet time together.
started on the one Christmas card I am doing this year--the challenge for this year is to paint a clumber spaniel on a ladder. I think I have the drawing taken care of for that, but i'm still waiting on a photo for the third dog in the card. so currently I am just working on the background--won't be able to start on the foreground until I have all the dogs to position.
and I threw a brie baker yesterday. went pretty well--it's basically a plate with a groove in it and a big upside down bowl for the lid. I had made a couple before, but the plate of one broke all to pieces and the top to the other one cracked--so I had a top and bottom that don't fit each other. but I really like the top I made, so I have just hung on to it, thinking I will make a new bottom. plates are challenging, and I haven't made too many. the one I made yesterday went fairly well--it will take awhile to dry and come off the bat I threw it on. in another day or so the bowl will be dry enough to trim and add a handle.
hoping it's not raining so I can get ralphie to the park today. he is going crazy since we haven't been able to go for a couple days due to the constant rain.
have a great day!

    The brie baker does sound interesting. I hope Ralphie got an outing. Molly loves her trips to the dog park. We've only met two dogs which is fine by me and she gets to discover lots of information by smelling. In fact, I walk alone a good portion of the time while Molly checks out the hut and sitting area.
