(You gotta love the green moss on this guy's head)We've hired someone to thin out our forests a little and open it up giving us more light, and lots of that wood was bucked up, split and awaiting stacking in the shed by the kiln. Thank goodness there were lots of people there...but even so, the unloading, stacking and clean up took us 6 hours. By that time, we were just tired out.
Oh yes!...Recent news is that blurb.com where I have created the books you see on the left sidebar is now making all the books available as ebooks! So if you have an iPad or such, you can download these books for a fraction of the cost of the print version. Please note: Only the East Creek Anagama book is available today. After tomorrow, all should be. Just click on the photo on the left which will take you to the site, then look for the ebook option to download your book.
The sun looks like it might shine today which would be lovely. We've had tastes of the gray and wet of winter already, but I am just not quite ready for it to settle in permanently yet (am I ever?)
Time to clean out most of the garden beds, except carrots, which will stay in the ground until they are needed for fresh juice. I did plant some mixed greens both outdoors and in the greenhouse as they thrive in the cool days of fall and winter and provide us with fresh salads almost year around.
This Saturday night is the gala/fundraiser at the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg OR where my Day of the Dead pieces, along with those of a few other artists, are shown with the work of other artists. The silent auction ends that night, and hopefully supporters of the new Cultural Center will show up en masse to bid and raise money for this vibrant facility for the arts.
Ah, yes, the sun is shining, so it is time to seize the day! Enjoy.... One of these days some more will get done. It seems that after a big burst of creativity some clean up and reorganization are just what are needed to restart the creative spark which is what I will do today.
