Writer's retreat

Stir fry

I thought you might enjoy two of my newest hand-made bowls in action. As usual, they're imperfect...but still beautiful and functional.

The real purpose of this post, though, is to let you know I'm going on a writer's retreat this afternoon and won't be back at on the blog until Thursday. Mark's holding down the fort while I'm gone, so you'll still get your daily homesteading episode in the evening, and I'll share lots of photos of my 5,000-feet-above-sea-level retreat when I return. I'm looking forward to lots of writing and hiking time, and I hope your week is as inspiring as I expect mine to be!

The "imperfections" in the bowl is exactly where the beauty of it lies!

You're always so generous with your readers! Thanks for the heads up that the blog schedule will be different. I love the bowls. They're excellent.
