The past two weeks have been intense prep weeks for my classes at The Potter's School, especially since I had just found out that a textbook I had relied on in past years was not going to be available this year after all. That left me scrambling, but I think I've come up with a good plan. Executing it will take a lot of time and detailed planning, though. So with all that plus what I was already expecting as far as workload goes, this week's meals were quick and easy and the housework got only a lick and a promise. This week should be better (hopefully!).
Dave understood the added pressure and brought me these beautiful yellow carnations as a treat and encouragement. Wasn't that sweet? I added some zinnias from the garden and look what a pretty bouquet they made! I find that flowers and quilts are similar in this one way~ even when the individual parts don't seem to go together, when you get them together and arranged, it always turns out well.
After I met my deadline for school, to relax and blow off some steam, Dave took me to dinner and . . .
the shooting range! Though he has gone a few times, it was my first, and I have to say that it was a lot of fun. First I got a lesson in gun safety and how to shoot, and then it was time to aim at the target. I did really well according to the instructor! See?
And you know what? It was relaxing!
The place we went to dinner is a local favorite with a long history. It's run by a Greek family, and I guess that this was one of their first impressions of the U.S.~
