All Fired Up

Holy Crap, Batman …

Yup, that's how I feel.  Like crap -- not psychically, or emotionally -- the kind of crappiness that comes from a full-blown summer cold -- or whateve this is.  Eyes hurt, throat hurts, monster headache, etc., etc.  Had some toast and am drinking all of...

Did you miss me?

Whew!  What a week!  We got back Saturday night, after a week away -- at Sauble Beach.  I know, that sounds delightful, eh?  And, it was in so many ways ... but, we were BUSY!  We were there for the week up to our daughter's wedding, so the...

Forget Mr. Rogers …

What's that?  Are you saying it's not possible?  Well, maybe it is ... if you're looking for a new neighbourhood!  And, maybe if you're a faerie, or a lover of faeries, or beneficial insect friends, or toads ... Because if you are, do I ever have a...

All is not lost …

The berry bowl escapade is finished ... they went from over-fired cone 6 to somewhat cute, but what a rigamarole!  First I painted the darn things with just one coat of underglaze and warmed them in the oven.  (You heard all about that!) Now they've been...

Sanity returns …

It happens every year at this time (tax time, that is).  My husband and I turn into lunatics getting stuff together for the tax return and then drive each other around the bend waiting to hear from the accountant about how much we'll have to ante up.  Things...

What do you do?

I told you the tale of the completely overfired pots ... so, the last couple of days were spent painting the darn things (don't want to throw out a kiln load of otherwise perfectly good pots!), and some of them are now in the oven warming up so I can clear glaze them....
