I've been slacking on my blogging - tsk! tsk! There haven't been any monumentally exciting things going on around here, though...that's a good thing, I think. No extraneous spending, no off-the-wall bills, nothing. Just the way I like it.

Last weekend I cooked up a storm - Moroccan lentil soup, 2 loaves of rosemary bread, 2 'light' cheesecakes, veggie burgers, etc. I definitely kept the kitchen warm. Wink I felt so productive! I had never made rosemary bread before, and it turned out great. My next culinary adventure will be cardamom bread.

Today I took a walk during lunch to blow off some steam. I just don't understand why people feel the need to push their own values and opinions on others. I'm not one for debate, or arguments, or always standing up for myself (though I am trying to get better about the last one)...I just wish everyone would live peacefully and respectfully. The world would be such a better place. I live my life the way I choose, and I'm happy. If you choose to live your life in a different way with different values, that's fine with me. I just don't see the need to attack and insult people whose values differ from your own. I know - crazy talk.

It's a gorgeous day in Minnesota today. Some of the leaves are still clinging to their branches, it's brisk but not cold, and the sun is so deliciously warm. Everyone I met on the path was so friendly. I had no desire to come back inside after my jaunt around the park! This is my favorite time of year.

More ugly pots to make tonight, but they are slowly becoming less ugly. I think I'll be taking this class again next semester. I feel like I'm just now starting to get the hang of it, and I only have 2 more sessions to throw pots!

    LOL - this is how I view my ballet. It's ugly dancing, but hopefully with time I'm becoming less stilted and awkward. Keep at it!

    Your walk sounds lovely, btw.

    It's not crazy talk. It is really the way things should be. My favorite kind of walk is on those days where it is misty and or softly raining. It really clears the head and puts things into perspective!

    Perhaps your pots have great wabi-sabi. Smile
