Back in the high life

Well, the moving is done! The old casa is cleaned out, all the detritus has been hauled away, everything we wanted to keep is safely nested into our new digs, my tent shop is up and running and we are breathing a huge sigh of relief.

Of course we are ridiculously tired from it all so we are taking a long weekend and going to the beach. Needless to say, the weather is being non-cooperative by blessing us with the biggest storm to date of this winter. But we had a week of sunshine while we were moving so you can't ask for too much.

By Monday, I should be back in the shop and I can start finding some outlets for my turnings. I have quite a few now and as nice as they are to look at, one can easily have too much of a good thing and I can't think of a better way to cull them out than to sell them!
