Sunday is Domestic Day

Before you leave because you think there's nothing about polymer clay here... I promise I'll use the word again... farther down. But first, I just have to share some domestic bits with you...

For those who don't know Tom, my DP, he's a major huge (might I add organic) gardener. No, not one of those "poke-around-in-the-soil-a-bit" gardeners that like to read seed catalogues more than actually order seeds from them (*ahem* like me). He's a dedicated, well trained,
"have-to-walk-around-the-garden-
every-morning-(breath)-to-see-
how-everything-is-doing" kind of gardener.

He's so good that this year ONE TOMATO PLANT produced four of these bowls full of tomatoes....

Imagine one plant, just ONE plant, producing four bowls of these beauties! AND HE HAS FOUR MORE PLANTS!!!! Aaaaack!

What does one do with all these tomatoes?

Make tomato sauce, of course!!!

Good think we have a large freezer. And why, you might ask, is Tom cooking those tomatoes and not me? Well... remember, I'm in production mode... I'm up to my eyeballs in polymer clay (there, I said I'd mention that word again). Only two more weeks to go. And there is NO SURFACE THAT'S SAFE when I'm in production! "Honey, where's the wood stove?"

Yummmmmm!!! I need a DP that gardens and cooks...and maybe cleans and does errands!
I can't wait to hear about your show. Be sure to post pics of your booth or table or whatever!

Lol! Yeah, well... my DP isn't always hot on cleaning. Sometimes I am, except I usually choose to clay instead of clean. *wicked grin*

I promise to TRY to take photos of the show/booth/whatever, my dear. But knowing me, I'll get all stressed about setting up and whether anyone is coming to my booth, and why don't I have a credit card machine and... well, you know. It will be a miracle if I remember to take photos. But I promise to try - for you. :)

Laughed at your pics of 'schtuff everywhere'...looks like me! And what a great tomato grower your DP (what is DP exactly?) is! You can send him to Australia to work on my garden if you like! I also like to check on my garden every morning, seeing what seeds have popped their little heads up, what needs more water, what needs tying to a support. It's a glorious way to start my day and I'm sure my clay work is all the better for it.

Mel!! Hey, I haven't received an invitation to your "Down Under Clay Retreat" yet. *wicked grin* ;P

Glad to hear there are other clutter bugs in the pc community, although I'm guessing there may be quite a few. Did you ever read that funny bit in Polymer Clay Cafe, some time back, about the ever encroaching clay. It was hysterical.

And no, my down under friend, you may not have my DP for a while. I need him. Oh, and DP stands for Dear Partner, as opposed to DH, which means Dear Husband. At least, that's my understanding... wouldn't it be funny if I got it totally wrong, and DP actually stood for dreadful parent, or drastic participle, or... ok, I'll stop.

Glad you came to visit your punchy buddy and fellow Mel, Mel. ;)
