Bridgman chicken. We're down to two hens. And they're flipping out just a bit. Funny thing was another friend had one of her araucana "pullets" turn into a roo, as well.
I'm slowly restocking my etsy shop- these teacups are there, and there are a few berry bowls up, too. I've gotten some really nice bloggy props this week. I really appreciate it, friends.
I'm working on figuring out how to fire during this heat wave we've been having. The solution involves borrowing a smaller kiln from a fellow potter-friend who is expecting her fourth child this summer. Ironically, the kiln used to be mine and went to live with a little old lady friend before it went to my friend who has it now. Smaller=less energy=I can run the air. Our lows haven't been much under 80 for the past two weeks, and the high humidity (which I usually love) means that it feels much warmer than it is. We're having August weather in June. And it's ok, but I have to have a production work-around. I can't not work just because it's hot, nor can I make my family suffer through nights of no air conditioning. (what did we do before this air-conditioned comfort? I'll bet that windows weren't painted shut- as they are in my bedroom- before the advent of air conditioning)
I hope your weekend is restful. See you on the other side.
