Over-Tired and Under-Blogged

Did you miss me? Were you wondering if I was ever going to post anything new on my blog ever again??
Well too bad for you because...I'm back!

This morning I had high hopes for getting up early and going for a run. With the alarm set, I hit the sack. Blame it on the noisy A/C (that's what I'm going with) or on my extremely over-tired self (and over-tired Michael) but neither of us even heard the alarm until after it had been going off for 32 minutes. WOW. Kind of defeats the purpose of the alarm doesn't it?! Anyhow, I skipped the run and went right for the shower. Perhaps tomorrow I'll turn up the volume on the alarm. Perhaps.

Back to the reason you're here reading this. Sorry for the hiatus, we've been busy and haven't done much by way of house projects. Therefore, there hasn't been much to share with you!

The tree saga continues...
After leaving numerous messages for the "tree guy" we came home from work Monday to this scene:

Thankfully the tree was gone. Sadly, so was our grass.
Who needs grass anyway?!?! Besides...that's a project for the Fall. (Or so I'm told.) Need I remind you...I'm new to this!
With any luck the "tree guy" will show up again soon to remove the HUGE tree in the middle of the driveway, Mark (our neighbor's) tree, and to trim all the branches that hang over the garage. We'll see...I'm not going to hold my breath.

In other news I've been working hard every week at my super fun ceramics class! With lots of support and advice from my awesome teacher Jenn, I recently created these:

p.s. please excuse the messy coffee table and sofa...but not too much...because that's actually how we live in this casa.


  1. The ceramics look great!! by the way love the blog....

  2. Great work. I think they're wonderful. You're very good at this and I'm glad you're enjoying. Keep up the good work. I'm waiting for your show!
