Back to the Norm

So we flew in last night with a two 1/2 hour lay-over in JFK..exciting!
The weather was really nice. Typical central NY breeze, 70 degrees and it just reminded me of childhood. I know my grandmother enjoyed being home as well after living in the south for the last 10 years.
We got to explore a little bit around the Syracuse area and take in a few parks between family stuff.
Here is a photo taken at Skaneateles Lake, we will be here this summer for a real vacation. I can't wait!

Today is the twins birthday so its there day for some fun stuff. Motherhood calls until this evening.
My studio needs tending to. My last firing before I left did not get to temp. on the top so I think its time for some new elements. YUK! Tonight I'll get myself back organized and cleaned up. My next event is a show at Lark and Key Gallery. I'm really excited about showing my new cake trays and some other ideas I have spinning around in my head.

Good to be back!

While you're up in the Fingerlakes region this summer, you should swing down our way. We'd love to show you around our neck of the woods and introduce you to our passel of potters.

Thank for the invite. We'll see if I can talk my crew into some "pottery" visits!

Amy said...

We'll be there the second week of August. Hopefully by that time the lakes will be alittle warm so my southern kids won't whimp out while getting into the lake!

Jen, when is your show at Lark & Key? I'd like to come. Happy birthday to the girls. Hope to see you guys soon.

Jen Mecca said...

The opening in the 3rd of June..Friday night. I was just thinking that since I did nothing for my birthday who ever wants to come can go to this Indian resturant I've heard about. YUMMMMMM

I think we head back south the 7th of August. I feel sure our paths will cross soon!

Hey You mentioned your next event is at the Lark and Key. I'll def attend and we can chat there about plates and such. Just wondering if you do gift certificates? I'd love to get some "Jen Bucks" for my b-day to help buy my new dishes! :)

Will you swing through Manhattan? OR NJ????

Jen Mecca said...

Hey Judi!
We are coming down through Virginia and Penn., sorry no NJ this trip. Joey does want to take the kids to NY city again at some point. Maybe in a few years we'll be in the same location!
