Yesterday when we went to the post office I didn't bother to change out of studio clothes because Proge said, "You aren't going inside, Mom." To which I say HAH! of course I ended up having to go in looking like I live out of a refrigerator box.
I made certain rules after I retired when I found myself gardening in my pajamas. I get up and get dressed in studio clothes, make the bed, brush my hair etc. When I leave the house I put on clean pants and shirt. It always works out that I will have to do stuff and be seen in public if I don't. This is a pretty low bar but it does keep me in some sort of organized mode.
The Booth cartoon is one of our favorites. A lot of the time our house looks like a Booth drawing, but we perservere.

I've been looking at the two pots below because someone from the co-op asked me for the recipe. It's a ^6 glaze that I used a lot when I was teaching. Both are from the same base glaze which is extremely forgiving.
It's much easier to see the variations in the rust with yellow than the mottled effect of the warm green.
The cup is one of my earliest efforts. Because I had so much art stuff behind me, my glazing was much better than my early throwing efforts. I did a lot of hand building then, which stood me in good stead when I damaged my wrist and could no longer throw more than three pounds.
Does anyone else have rules of behavior while being self employed? It's a slippery slope when you have only yourself to live up to.
Sunny and colder today. At least the wind has died down.
Enjoy the day. As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*
