Turnings Galore

It has been a slow-paced week for us, mostly because we have both been sick. We even went to the doctor on Wednesday--something we rarely have to do, except for our regular checkups.

But Saturday, we really needed to buy some groceries and it was the weekend of the annual Desert Woodturning Roundup in Mesa. So, we visited the turning show for a short time before doing our shopping. We had to drive the long way around to central Mesa because of the marathon race being held.

It was good to see all the wonderful creations on display, and to shop with the vendors. John found some tools and I bought a bowl blank. We enjoyed the roundup and now have enough food for a few days. But neither of us is well, yet. Maybe yesterday was too much. We didn't even go to church this morning.

The wood-turning projects ranged from beautiful to "how did they do that?" I can really appreciate all the work that going into some of the objects. I have never done work like this, but I do understand the basic mechanics involved.

But I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to accomplish other projects.
