Updates: Pottery, Lost Dogs & Books

Hi, all! It's been another busy, but artsy week. Artsy, you say? Yes, artsy. And not just my Fan Art Up posts (which was Michael from "Peter Pan" this week).

Friday night, I joined some gals from my church group for a pottery wheel workshop. It was really fun! Even if I did forget all the instructions the second I sat down. I started to feel more comfortable in the last five minutes. And I made three pot...mug...things. I'll find out when I pick them up. Of course, I forgot to take any pictures. Fail. But I'm planning to drag another group there soon, including my art major cousin who specialized in ceramics. ;)

Saturday morning was the annual church yard sale, where I was more OCD than artsy, but organization is an art, right? People are less likely to buy the books if they can't see them! Sunday afternoon, I found a dog on our porch. It was well groomed, well behaved and had a collar (license tag but no number or address). And, of course, the magic license records didn't open until 8:30 a.m. Monday. Luckily, the owner heard it barking while driving around and picked him up. :)

So yeah, busy weekend, but fewer tutoring sessions this week, which means more reading! And movies! I finally watched "Thor: The Dark World" last night and loved it! And I finished ACID! I didn't love it as much as I'd hoped, but it was pretty entertaining. And I'm halfway through Tabula Rasa and really enjoying it. Except for the name switches; I liked the first names better.

That's it for today! Check back tomorrow for a mini-review of Jasper Fforde's irreverent, delightful The Last Dragonslayer!


  1. The only thing I know about pottery wheels is from Ghost. :)

    I read Acid recently, too, and I also didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I almost gave up near the beginning, but I'm glad I didn't because the ending was pretty strong. I'm not sure if I'll read more from this series, though.

    1. That's what everybody keeps saying. Apparently it's the only pottery scene Hollywood has ever done. :)

      I was a little surprised by ACID after reading so many 4 and 5 star reviews. And I know what you mean; I enjoyed the book well enough, but I'm not sure I want more of the series. I'm pretty satisfied with where it ended and not especially curious about where it might go.
