Game Room Update

pool tableWe decided to go ahead and get rid of our pool table since it only gets used for storage these days. All the kids and grandkids are grown and the greats are too little to use it.  Those of you who have walked through the game room to get to the studio know just how much was piled on it. So I tired myself out the last couple of days moving carousels and molds and paints and books and so on. Not everything was ON the table, much was UNDER the table (and is still there), or on the floor BESIDE the table (on the ends). We advertised on Facebook and had about a dozen inquiries. I hope that the fellow coming tomorrow takes it, despite a couple of repairs that need done (mentioned in the ad). If not, I’ll go to the NIL (next in line).

We have not yet decided how to use the space but at least will have room to set up a table or two when needed. There is still some wood, bins of books, and things to be repaired that need a new home.  But things are moving along.

Back Porch

If you have not yet taken a look, there is still some 4th of July and Easter decorations, a bluebird set I used for August, and quite a few bird feeders. I guess it’s what folks do when they get old ~ it’s called downsizing. Fact is that I LOVE to decorate for the holidays and had one, two, or three bins for each month. But we don’t have that many visitors and it is just too much work for me to get everything out and  pack it away again. Besides, I would rather show off the ceramics that we make in our own studio. Another bonus is more room in the shed. Hmmm, wonder what I can use that for? Maybe some ceramic molds!
