A year ago today we went over to Connecticutt and picked up our half corgi/half something else rescue puppy Winter. Needless to say she has grown a great deal in the past year. The little tan spots have come out since November. She has brought us extreme amounts of joy and has turned out to be a great deer chaser! Deer and squirrels are her nemeses.
My studio is still pretty cold, but if I wait until about 11:00 AM the sun and my little heater have warmed things enough so I can work there. The trouble with a cement slab floor is that it takes forever to warm enough to be comfortable. The same thing is an advantage in July; the floor helps keep things cool.
Obviously, this is clay waiting to be wedged. I swear that my next clay purchase is going to be a pug mill......someday! We'll see, Grasshopper......we'll see.
Speaking of grasshoppers, I hope people are following Robin Hopper on his blog. This week's post is about Mocha Diffusions and no, it has nothing to do with coffee.
Below is a photo of me with my favorite helper cat, Aloysius, First he jumps up on my shoulders to rearrange my hair, then he has to add his opinions to whatever I am working on. Disconcerting still, after three years. What would I do without my little elves?
And last, but certainly not least, Happy Saint Patrick's Day to one and all. We will be celebrating with Irish whisky smoked salmon, soda bread and zeppola....not in that order.(We've eaten up the corned beef!) The zeppola are really to celebrate Saint Joseph's Day on March 19, but this being Rhode Island with large Italian and Irish populations the celebratory food and drink generally is combined for both days.
Below are my shamrocks.....I'm not sure that they're really shamrocks, but they are lobed like shamrocks. If the shoe fits.......
It looks like it's going to be another sunny, but cool day. I hope all are enjoying good weather in their parts of the world.
This rather disjointed post will also be over on Mud Colony. There's always something interesting to be found there. I hope you will take a look.
Enjoy the day, and as always, thanks for stopping by............*s*
