Winter Fantasy for Cold Potters

Recommended Posts

I just received this email from PotterBarter: a potter's studio and gallery (with living quarters) for sale in Puerto Rico where it is currently 86 degrees. No, I'm not helping them sell the place, but it's great eye candy, especially for any potter who's grown weary of winter! And the studio is the cleanest workspace I've ever seen. Heck, my kitchen has never been this clean! If you'd like a 5-minute escape to the tropics, click on the link and look at the slide show. As for me, I'm gonna go clean my studio now (and maybe my kitchen), and then I'm gonna turn up the thermostat.

Nice! When I first got my kick wheel and it was too heavy to move into the basement I had it in the garage. I would keep the door open and lust listen to the birds and have the fresh summer air. I wish I lived in weather where I could make stuff outside like that! wub.gif

I got that ad from potterbarter had to look at it, we recently had the most snow ever since they started keeping track. Twenty one inches doesn't sound like a lot to some people, we usually get 2-3 inches and it shuts down the town. Kansas never seems to have the right weather to work outside in, it's either too hot, too cold and it's always too windy. It's hard for me to imagine even working outside ever, I do manage to open a window now and then. Denice

Well,

as everybody knows, I live in Canada, about 2000 miles north of Wichita. I actually went out and took some shots of the snow to post for you guys. Could someone show me where to get instructions to post pictures on the blog?

I almost said; "Could somebody show me where to go?', but that's just silly.

TJR.

I think the best place is to use the Click to Attach Files button on the bottom left. Make certain your pics aren't too large in size. I usually use a photo editor to crop/trim them down a bit and save as a JPEG. The button will let you direct to your folders and files on your machine.

Here in PA it hasn't been a good Winter, but compared to other parts of the country all year round it has been excellent. We have not had much of the drought you folks have had, the tornadoes, the forest fires and brush fires, we haven't even had a lot of snow, just temp variations that have been up and down this Winter. That has been aggravated by what I call Nuisance Snow 1-3 inches of precip that seems to make scraping or shoveling necessary but not difficult. At the same time with the varied temps you have to watch for ice while driving. Newer cars with outside thermometers really help out there a lot. It will be 38 in one area, and the next thing you know 31, so you have to watch it in rain.

We visited Puerto Rico a few years ago and loved it there, so when I got the ad from Potterbarter I had to google it to see where it was located on the island. It's at the far west edge, so I bet the sunsets are amazing. If it weren't for the lizards it would be perfect. I can't handle so many lizards.

Down here the woods are exploding in blooms. My favorite flower the yellow jasmine is all over the place. Bright yellow and smelling like Heaven. (Not that I know or will ever know what Heaven smells like.) (Imagine an emoticon of your choice here.)

It looks wonderful to me as I sit in my living room looking outside at three feet of snow! I'm in Northern Canada

 

Jim your description of your neck of the woods sounds beautiful.....

 

 

I sometimes daydream about moving to a civilized country like Canada. When I was a kid I hitched to Canada and worked all summer in Tilsonburg, Ontario. On the weekends I hitched all over the eastern half of Canada. What a beautiful country and great people.

WE often camped in Eastern Canada in the summers. Things were inexpensive, weather was moderate for summer with lower humidity, and the Eastern Provinces have great scenery, and were not as crowded and developed as the US especially at national parks. This was mostly in the 70's and 80's before the big highway building programs.
