been busy with art & soul...its going to taper off after this week. We actually have no more room for pottery on any shelf. We are using a table in the store right now. Once we get the kiln unloaded tomorrow i have no idea where we are going to put stuff. its ok we will figure it out....this is a great problem!! so next week i will be shipping a lot of boxes and then after that i will be sitting all alone at art & soul. we already changed our hours to 9-6 cause Tim & Jamie are coming up for visit!! I am so excited!!

so on a whim my friend joy and i went to an audition about 45 minutes away....for "The Diviners" it was a lot of fun!! A little crazy and really scary. ( i was the first one up on stage to read) But it was such a great night and boy do we have some good storys about our time. And at 11pm we could call a hotline to get the cast list and for some crazy reason I am now cast in a play 45 minutes away that i dont know anything about but I am soooo excited. I havent acted since highschool unless you count church plays! If anyone is interested in coming to see me it is Oct 13 & 14 and Oct 20, 21 & 22. Check out Cumberland Players for more info.

so last night we got home from hanging out with joy and tommy and jimmy and david decided to turn on the air conditioner in the living room while he played guitar and i read. it was probably around 10:30pm and after about 10 minutes the air conditioner made a droaning and slowing sounds and then BAM the lights went out and the air went off. the breaker had tripped and when david went to fix the breaker by clicking it back over to on...it was completely blown....so my reading came to an end and we decided to try to go to sleep with out air or a fan because all the plugs in the house are on one breaker except the fridge. falling alseep in the 98% humidity of our house wasnt working so we ended up unplugging the fridge and running an extension cord for the fan...talk about ghetto. so david and his dad are fixing the breaker today. FUN!

so i was just contacted to teach a pottery project in the fall for a womens retreat. i have to figure out the cost per piece and the shipping cost because all of the pieces will have to be shipped since i wont be able to get 50 plates into one kiln load. i am excited for a prospect of money making in the off season. now i need to finish the proposal.

so friends when i have a $1,000 day the reward for all of my hard work is ice cream. sadly today i fell $50 short of getting ice cream. but its okay because tomorrow ginny is opening for me and i get to sleep in..do my compex work in peace with out having to worry about ignoring a customer and then i am going to swim for an hour or so...tomorrow will be a wonderful day for me. a bit of a break in the routine of 9am-9pm inside the blue walls of art & soul. i am thankful for ginny and i am thankful for all of the customers who helped me almost get ice cream today :)
