During Eric’s classes that we travel a long distance to, I’m not sitting in someone’s house or a hotel room thinking of things to do! I do not weave myself and people are always asking me what I’m doing with myself while Eric is working. Honestly, I’m always busy when we’re on the road. For the recent Georgia Basketry Convention below is a “diary snippet” of my day’s activities:
I started by helping Eric set up for his first class at the workshop location. That’s usually about 1-2 hours. Then I headed over to one of my favorite thrifts stores for clothing, in Roswell (will post about this in a future post).
Caught up on some reading for a little break. Went to the kennel three miles away from where we were staying to take Chance for an hour-long walk.
Then, when I returned to our “home-away-from-home,” I worked most of the afternoon on several different freelance projects that needed to get out: Caribbean Rum label and logo; a school logo; an email blast ad; stickers & hang tags for a sports line and a financial newsletter.
Then, while Suzanne, our host and awesome chef, and Eric were at their evening basketry classes, Jud, the other host and non-chef, took me to Chick-fil-A. I have not been to one since I lived in Texas. That was about twelve years ago! We don’t have any up north. So that was a little “fast food” treat. I know why people who love Chick-fil-A love Chick-fil-A! Thanks Jud!
