The past couple of weeks have been busy but in a really good way. It seems that old friends from highschool are coming out of the woodwork. I have seen three of them just since a week ago Friday. Several others have been talking on facebook and through email.
I haven't been doing much glass or garden junk for the past while. I have been tearing the inside of my studio apart and redoing everything. The shelves that were initially in there just didn't work for what I needed to store. The insulation behind them was never put in and the beaded board wasn't up. I tore out all of the shelves out and have put all of the wall insulation in. As soon as I am able to, I will finish the wall board, rework the work tables, and make all new shelving. I want to do it shabby chic/flea market/garden junk style. All of the shelving and display items will be repurposed items. As soon as I get it close to finished I will post pictures. I am enjoying the work, but I will enjoy it more when I can get back to what I do best in a newly finished studio.

Today has been a good day. I managed to get a lot done. I put some of my garden art and bird feeders out. I put some glass in the kiln to make a butterfly feeder. And I worked in the studio on some projects for several hours. When the projects are done, and the garden starts turning green again I will take pictures and post them.

Today we took JT outside to play in the snow that we got yesterday. She wanted to check out the garden so that is where we started. She didn't reallize how deep the snow was until she jumped in.
After we played in the garden for a while we fed the birds.
We had been outside for quite a while and JT, not being accustomed to the cold and snow, was ready to go inside and have a cup of hot cocoa.
So that is what we did.
The kids and I have enjoyed our visit with JT and will be sad to see her go but we know that the Junk Train must stay on schedule. We will be loading it back up and sending it on to the next station very soon.
