I thought I give you a play by play on my thoughts yesterday as I wondered out the door to have a little pottery time in the midst of birthday parties, taking my niece to see the band "The Fray" for her sixteenth birthday and a whole list of other things.
I did manage to sneak away for a few hours of silence while Joey took everyone to the local pool. Here's my running thought pattern while I talk to myself on my way to make glazes and terra sig!
Wow, lots of pots under plastic, wonder if anything has a cracked? I need to get those in the kiln and start my bisque load. Oh yah..I need to check the elements. Wow..what a pain in the butt to change elements...if only I had my own live-in handy man around! Oh yah..guess I do. I meant one that fixed things and didn't need any help from an assistant. Wow..that would be great, I could just throw while he fixed my kiln without any help from me! Fantasy.......
Didn't realize how many finished pots I really do have. Hummm is there anything here besides my cookie jars that I want to put in my next show. Boy I'm stacked on tiles!
Does anyone else out there have to share their space with kids toys, a million nuts in buckets, plant growing stuff and lawn chairs? Com'on folks..why can't this stuff go right out to the back barn? Oh yah, its got all my show displays hoggin' all the room....
The elephant ear garlic finally bloomed while we where gone. Boy, if only I had learned how to braid garlic like my grandmother. My uncle use to have a shed full of this stuff when I was little! Those blooms are so cool!
Ah ha! My wild flowers here are sprouting. Guess I didn't kill the ground totally with all my left over glaze water I've tossed out this door every now and than. Not anymore! I kind of like the flower bed here. Makes me keep things neat out here.
Time to work with only glaze stuff in my shed to deal with..........what are the golf clubs doing here? LORD!
Time to make the terra sig!
