Weekend Reading 9.4.22

By Kate Riley September 4, 2022

I spent extra hours at my local pottery studio this week, working on creating vessels by hand using molds and templates. It’s a quiet community space to work in and I’m so happy to have discovered it! I’m learning all about glazing and different colorization techniques, it’s been a lovely experience being enrolled in a two month course.

Yesterday Matt and I spent a whole day decluttering the family home here in California and coming up with plans for updating different spaces. Already it feels fresher but there is a lot more work to do. We miss our daughter’s presence but there is also a calm feeling in our home because it’s a little quieter. These are the adjustments that occur when a nest empties but I’m glad it’s happening slowly, not overnight.
