Last week I painted a pot with my Mile High Mamas friends. A bowl, actually, for my husband to eat from while he’s at work.

He uses it for oatmeal in the morning and soup in the afternoon.

This week, all our works of art had been fired in the kiln and were ready for pickup.

We Mamas decided to post photos of our finished works, so here’s mine. Er, Roger’s.

Happy weekend, everyone. May it be filled with comfort food (unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, in which case I hope your weekend includes a tall, cold drink).

Perfect Moment Monday: Bright sunshiny night

I never thought I’d have a perfect moment thanks to a surface cleaner, but this week SC Johnson made one happen. And I get to pass the sunshine on to one of you.

With the theme of “Brighten Your Day / Create a Little Sunshine,” two lovely ladies from Windex gathered together a bunch of Mile High Mamas for a night of pottery painting.

You know how I love pottery painting.

And you know how I love hanging out with my Mile High Mama friends.

The dozen of us were served a yummy dinner and then we were set free in the local pottery shop to get creative.

Roger had asked me to paint a bowl for him to keep at his office so he could eat oatmeal and soup from it (not together).

So here I am concentrating on his comfort bowl, wondering if I’ll be able to finish the third coat of color before the studio closes and all my friends are tucked into bed.

The painting time was filled with face-to-face blogger contact. I learned about Mid-Century Style, when Green isn’t green, the perils of Body Pump, and the perils of having 5 kids home for 5 weeks. Sitting with these funny and smart women was, in a word, delightful.

By the time I got home, my husband and the kids were already asleep and I had NOTHING TO DO!

It was a fantastic finish to a perfect evening.
