Trying To Get Things Done - but not

I am being punished for running up the steps to the lab with Molly yesterday.  We were trying to get there before the old guy who was also going to the lab but taking the elevator.  So I am on crutches for 7 days.
I have two huge kiln loads of bisque fired earthenware and low fire white pieces just waiting patiently for me to glaze and I was in the middle of glazing porcelain with a bunch of new glazes and they are all in the basement waiting for me and I am stuck in the family room with crutches.  Very frustrating.  I'm making Molly crazy with my "Mollyyyyy, will you get me this and that and this and that..." all day.  Luckily Howard is keeping me company...but he's sleeping - does your dog sleep like this? 
he's good for a laugh.  I have spent two days on the sofa now (actually it's more like 16 hours total but it feels like two days!) and I'm thinkin' it's time to crawl down the basement steps and start glazing - it's that or I'll go completely crazy sitting here.

Almost had a heart attack!

Having a lovely day.  I'm at my kitchen table working on the earthenware clay pieces that need to be cleaned so that I can bisque fire them.  I'm watching project runway - getting ready to start a movie (The Rite) - that's the other reason I'm working in the kitchen instead of the basement - I don't want to be down the basement alooooone while watching a scary movie. I sit la la la la la....
 Howard is in his spot doin' his thing...
 and I happen to look over and HOLY CRAP! The bird has escaped from his cage!
Howard would love to have him for lunch!  And any of you who have read my White Clover Stitches blog know how much I hate this bird.  He is Jason's bird and he hates everyone but Jason.  If you are eating he throws food at you.  He would love to rip your hand off if given a chance.  So when I looked over and realized that he was out of his cage my first concern was that Howard would see him and attack.  My second thought was how the heck am I going to get him back in his cage without Howard noticing.  Luckily Jason hadn't left with his friends yet so he was able to put him back but now I'm worried that he is going to do it again when Jason isn't home.  Stupid bird.  Well, not so stupid since he figured out how to prop open the door for his food dish and slip out without the door coming down on him.  Never a dull moment.

It Was A Good Day...

Today was a great day!  Miss Molly graduated from high school today.
My two oldest...frick and frack.
 I can't believe they are both college kids now.
