Look at that face. How could I say no?
I think this might be her grown child, or a submissive boyfriend, cause she was eating the canned food, and grayandwhite was sitting on the chest above her, waiting.
And he/she did not go near the canned food, til she was done. I saw her give the "look", and that was all it took.
So it seems to me, that grayandwhite must be a relative, who knows SHE is the boss.
My friend, Alice, stopped by today, and we decided to take a look around the cellar.
Actually, she wanted to go, and talked me into it.
The cellar is huge, and it is easy from there to appreciate the age of the house, and the incredible work that went into building it.
We found this jug, which was actually pretty dirty, almost black.
It is really in great shape, with no cracks at all.
No identifying marks though, none.
I have no idea about this jug, who made it, what it's worth in dollars, how old it is.
But I know that someone used it, here in this house, sometime between 1790, and now.
That's a lot to know.
I didn't drink any wine out of it, but I did drink some wine out of a glass.
This week I am going to try to get my thoughts together, and make a plan for 2011. Looking at what worked this year, and pondering what I want to do at the studio in the coming months.
After looking at my last year's resolutions, and realizing how badly I did keeping them, I've decided I just need to come up with a list of things I WANT to do, not a list of the things I think I SHOULD do.
It just doesn't work that well.
What kind of lists are you making for 2011?
