I think it's been almost three weeks since my last post. I've been cleaning and sorting my studio. It never fails to amaze me at the amount of stuff I manage to accumulate. Some of it I am tossing, particularly if I can easily get more. Just how many herb and vitamin bottles do I need to save? Some of the shapes I use for handbuilding I keep even if I use them occasionally.
Then there are the surprises. I have no idea when I made this little spoon. It holds about a half teaspoon. It's glazed and ready to fire so into the kiln it goes. I am jamming more and more stuff in, but am not going to fire until the weather cools down a bit.
Of course now that it's September we are having the hottest weather of the season. I am so glad I did not close the pool during our chilly weeks in August.
I've been baking bread. This is a loaf of oatmeal sourdough hot out of the oven. It has a very nice toasty flavor. I have a countertop convection oven which is wonderful for baking in the hot summer months.
It's Allergy Season! We have managed to get rid of most of the goldenrod and ragweed among other stuff, but it's rampant here on top of the hill. I'll put up with annoying allergies if we can have one of our long golden autumns.
I've learned the hard way to read labels on vitamins and supplements. I switched to a chewable Glucosamine-Chondroitin supplement. I was feeling worse and worse over a week or more until I finally asked myself, "What's new?" The ingredients list coconut oil. I can't eat coconut; it seems to be a family thing. Within two days of stopping them I was feeling better. Live and learn!
I hope everyone is enjoying these late summer or winter days, depending where you are. Toes crossed that no one is experiencing floods, fires, landslides or any other disasters.
We're expecting thunder showers later on; any rain is welcome at this point. We'll see, grasshopper ....we'll see.
As always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*
