                      I have been working the clay for 8 to 10 hours a day
                      I have 2 more days of building before I glaze.
                      A little time out to reflect on the lovely nature
                      outside my windows. The pond never fails to
                      quiet my soul and refresh my spirits.

What I have been up to.

Only 16 more to make,
If my arms and shoulders hold out.
Heating pads and emu oil
to the rescue.
I should be done by Monday night.
Than I start cooking them
and glazing them
and raku firing them.

Morning at the ridge

I have been too tired to take photos.
My upper body must be out of shape.
Wedging 40 pounds of clay
wore me out.
Only 20 more containers to make.
My husband has offered to cut ornamental
grasses to go in the vases.
He told me about the lavender grasses
by the big pond.
I checked them out and
saw lots of dragonflies by the pond.
Love those dragonflies.
Thank goodness he is willing to help.
My recliner felt so good when I sunk
into this evening.
                                    A couple of lovely spots by the small pond.
                              A day off for a doctor appountment.
                              Than back at it Wednesday.
