Amy & I are helping pack up a ceramics store to move to a new location. It is a dusty endeavor and is taking lots and lots of time & work.
There is an old saying "you can't see the trees for the forest" ~ I changed it to you can't see the ceramics for the shelves. All these items have been here the whole time but there is so much you look and look and can't see everything. Picking up each item, you discover lots of things.
We have found some odd things, I would have never thought of ~ things that I see and wonder "why"?....
A Casino Santa hitting the jackpot, Mail Man Santa, Fruit Basket Santa, Hawaiian Shirt Santa ~
A Lg. Frog (anatomically correct female) wearing a bikini ~
figurines with no clothing ~
Some cool things we found that we are going to do ~
old fashioned washboard
doll size tea sets
the Wall Street Bull (Greg wants)
Lots of Owls
I can't begin to count all the pieces that have been busted in the packing ~ mostly greenware (that hasn't been fired yet). Some have been on the shelves so long, that they crumble when we pick them up. And we don't know what the state of the items will be after the move and when we unpack.
Everything is supposed to be packed up by tomorrow night ~ I still can't see that happening. We've worked 7 1/2 hours 4 days and 9 hours yesterday, just this week..and it isn't done. Greg came and helped last night and worked with me all day today down there.
And then ~ once everything is moved ~ then starts all the unpacking and organizing ~ there is no telling how long that will take. Her location will be larger.
I am looking forward to the days of just going into the shop, sitting down and working on the goodies we have. Who knows when that will be!
As Scarlett O'Hara said "tomorrow is another day".
But first church! Happy Sunday!
