Thursday, July 11, 2013

I could have called this post "Martha's Day Off" because I have no small children to look after... But I didn't.

This morning Hannah and I met a friend (and her sisters) for breakfast here in town. Liz is my one and only "Pinterest Friend". Yes, we met on Pinterest, and yes, we have become friends. (Isn't life fun?) She "liked" or "repinned" my photograph of an area lighthouse and a conversation ensued on Facebook where we became actual "friends". We found that we came from the same hometown, were only a couple years apart in school, and had some mutual friends and acquaintances, and since her sister lives just around the corner from me, it seemed only right that we should meet in person, and so we did.

Today Hannah and twelve others are headed out on a grand adventure. Tomorrow morning, if all goes according to plan, they will arrive on the island of Grenada. At the moment they are instead delayed at the Rochester airport, but that is okay because their layover at JFK was scheduled to be seven hours long. A good adventure always begins with something unexpected, yes?
This evening I start my pottery class (and therefore shall miss the Webster Firemen's Parade...). It has been close to ten years since I took a wheel-thrown pottery class here in town, and I am rather excited to begin the adventure anew. Eight weeks of getting my hands dirty! When I first started blogging they gave us a question to answer, so for seven years this bit has been in my profile, 
"If mud is dirt plus water, what is clay?"
"An endless possibility! I can't wait to get started."

I don't know why I've waited so long. I wonder where this adventure will take me?


  1. meeting friends and a pottery class....two of your list items! Love that! I've missed you!

    1. Yes, and I have plans to meet with my third cousin on Sunday. It's turning out to be a wonderful summer!

      Do you think I should go to Niagara Falls too? (On my way to your place, of course. ;) )

  2. What a cool story! I had breakfast with one of my blogging friends a few months a go when he was in KC from Iowa.
