Painted the last (top) shelf wall this morning. I think it's looking pretty good. Even DH says that the green color shows the cups off better than the brown background did.
I was trying to decide whether to paint the back of the lower portion (not behind glass). You can see where I had some color strips taped. But I've decided not to do this. Do you agree?
My Fall Pottery classes start tomorrow. I'm anxious to get back on the wheel, but hesitant to get back into the swing of projects, etc. Last semester we spent the whole time sculpting with the Chess Project, that I totally neglected working on the wheel. So this semester I'm going to focus on it. At least 'that's the plan'.
My head was still a bit fuzzy yesterday morning, but has improved since. I went to lunch yesterday with 3 classmates from my ol' high school days in New Orleans. They all attended Dominican's 50th HS Reunion in April (which I missed due to the Alaskan cruise). They brought tons of pictures and we reminisced. I actually don't remember that much about high school. It was fun. The Nuns taught us (all girl school). The building and grounds were beautiful. We shared the building with Dominican college. The N.O. streetcars ran right in front of the school on St. Charles Ave. Loyola University and Tulane were just down the block. My friend and I lived out by Lake Pontchartrain so we took 3 buses and a street car to get to school and back. Now they've moved the high school to another place and the whole area has been sold to Loyola. Sad.

Today DH is making Coq au vin. He has made it before, but we both saw it made by a Chef on TV and he decided to try this recipe (which calls for both wine and cognac). I'll let you know.
Since I didn't post this yesterday, I will report that the Coq au vin was good... but much too much wine and cognac. We had to dilute it with some chicken broth. I did make some mini cheese biscuits to go with it and those were great!
And as for an update on my nephew's son who was in the car accident in New Orleans: He is doing well and now recuperating at home. Thank all of you out there who kept him in your prayers.
