Quick Update…

It’s been awhile so I wanted to put a quick update on the blog.
We’re all doing well here. Dave’s January MRI was clean and his oncologist said that if you were to put all of his MRI’s together since last fall…they all look exactly the same. Which is great news and the doctor feels that we can now have the MRI’s done every other month instead of monthly because there hasn’t been the slightest change. Dave will still have to go to the hospital to check in with the doc and get his prescription for the chemo, but at least he won’t have to be scanned every time now.

As for our art…no new pieces have come out of our kiln yet. It’s been so damn cold and our basement is not what you would call well insulated. It’s cold down there. VERY cold. We joked about putting on our jackets to go down there to work on some new pieces…but in the end it still wouldn’t be a good idea to fire up the kiln because to keep it firing at the temperatures we need would take a lot more energy and gas and it will just be easier when it warms up a bit. But we’ll keep you posted. We’ve been sketching new designs and tossing about a couple neat ideas for the new pieces. I can’t wait!

We also have realized that it would probably be a good idea to replace our basement windows this summer if we can finagle it out of our budget. Is this realistic…unsure but it’s something to work towards. They are the originals from the 20’s and time has not been kind to them. I think sometimes it’s not much warmer in the basement than it is outside during winter. And if we plan to start renovating down there and setting up our studio, something will need to be done about the cold. Windows will be the first step and then insulating the walls. Oh, and we will continue to toss the mass amounts of junk that seems to have accumulated down there…Be afraid. Be very afraid.
