Today was my last day throwing for the Thrown Together Show
on Sept. 24th. Sarah and I are going on vacation next week so I want to have all the pots made, slipped and some decorated before we leave. I'd like to get a bisque in too. So this week I'll be finishing and hopefully load a nice bisque on Friday or Saturday.
So it was the last wet day in the studio but it looks like there may be a day or more of very wet weather in store for us as tropical storm Lee drenches much of the south.
Thanks for all the comments on the last post about disconnecting!! This seems to be something that many of us could use some work on.
I have a few small strategies in place. I'm not going online until I've been up for at least 2 hours. I'd like to try and even move this on into the day, maybe not get online until lunchtime.
I'm trying to only check my email 2-3 times a day. When I check it I respond to the emails that come in or file them to be responded to. Right now I'm doing pretty good at responding to what comes in. I've also unsubscribed from several sites and changed my settings on social networks so I don't get notified about stuff.
If I think of something during the day that I want to look up I make a note of it on paper and then try to do all that at one time, usually in the evening. The evening is a bad time for me to get sucked in. If I stick to the list, check my mail and sign out then that's good. Not being successful at this all the time though. I should probably set a timer and go for a certain time and then log off.
If I am working on a document, or something in Photoshop, etc then I sign out of my browser so I'm not tempted to check my blog, or Etsy, or email.
I'm really trying to only do a couple posts to FB
or my Fan page
per day and not get caught up reading what everyone else is doing. *
I'll keep y'all up to date on what's going on as I try new disconnecting techniques this week.
The boxes are almost done and ready to deco. Today I got them slipped and the lids cut. They will get a lid flange tomorrow.
Thanks for checking in. I know we all have little time to spare but it's nice to be connected here on the blogs and I plan to keep on posting and to keep reading as many others blogs as I can.
*Did you follow those hyperlinks? Hum, that can get us in trouble too can't it?! Well if you did I hope you didn't get sucked in and made it back here quickly.
And now you're off to whatever is next!
