Le DAY in the life
Missus G of Derfwad Manor suggests a photo essay of a day in your life, in pictures! Sunday for me was fairly typical, except for the fact that dozens of people came over.
SO, our hero, c'est moi, is pictured finishing an apple tart in the morning, ready for breakfast. I love to bake, it is of course similar to working with clay, and this recipe was my wife's grandmother's plum tart recipe (plums are OK, apples are better). The beagle-matic was keeping the floor clean for me, as you see below the oven door. I spend most of the day in Le studio fiddling with clay and pots, and this was the weekend of the duck. I knew I would be captive to visitors on the open studio tour, and Sunday I had the most ever visitors, so it seemed a good time to concentrate on ducks. You see down below I started thinking DUCK PITCHER too, but mostly I finished a huge number of ducky cuppys.
One visitor was my old buddy David, (see bearded gent) a blog friend before we moved to Ithaca, then we met him in the flesh. David is one of those guys you can talk to all afternoon...
and so finally, I helped the missus make some pizza, which is her Sunday habit, and then there is walking le beast, or le beagle (seen below). My neighbors probably think I don't do anything other than walk the dog--as much as 5-6 times a day. But Penny is an athlete and likes to get out on squirrel patrol...
