Poem for Sunday, Sugarloaf Animals, Wolverine

Quickie because we were out with Adam till dinnertime and have spent all evening watching football and The Wolverine (plus we caught up on Thursday's Elementary, which we missed for The Sound of Music, and it's a good one, a different storytelling style). The Countryside Artisans winter tour is this weekend and next, so we went up to Art of Fire, which also has several other crafters visiting -- Allen Ye Printmaker and Dancing Pig Pottery from the Renfaire, jewelry makers, ornament crafters, and this year a local jam-and-jelly maker. Then we drove around the mountain to Sugarloaf Studio and Dancing Leaf Farm to see the yarn and jewelry, plus sheep, goats, horses, and cows on the farms along the way. Here are a few of the animals:

On the way home we stopped at the Montgomery Potters Ceramic Show in Garrett Park's town hall, where there's lots of beautiful inexpensive local pottery. Then we came home, ate vegetarian chili, checked in on the Florida State game, and watched The Wolverine in tandem with dementordelta with whom I'd seen it in the theater. I really like this movie; I know people complain a lot about the insanity of the last third, but I love all the scenes in Japan, I love that it has several women who kick ass and have complicated relationships, I'm not particularly bugged by the dream-flashbacks. Plus I have the deleted scene at the end and the features I haven't had time to watch yet. Now we have to brace for the snow that's ruining my Sunday plans.
