More Fun?

More water works.  I had a helper who offered to water plants in my sunroom, not realizing  that the plants over my computer table always get taken down for watering.  I went to use my computer about an hour later and found the keyboard flooded with water.  After drying and all the keyboard appears to be shot, so at present I am using a Microsoft keyboard.  I will, however, be getting a new MacBook in the near future! Tell me again how much you love Microsoft, because I think their keyboards suck dead monkey meat.

On a happier note I have not yet shown the glaze tests I did.  The whites look and feel so much alike that I am confident that I can combine them, which will give me about a gallon of glaze that is good for both dipping and brushing. 

The two below are Taffe on the left and Ian Symmons on the right.  I painted my designs over the glaze for this test, but I think I can get some interesting effects with underglazes.

It's snowing!  It has hit the whole east coast, and is not expected to stop until early Sunday morning.

I took the picture of the cardinal yesterday.  I am not sure why he is looking at me with that expression, but we did put more seed in the feeders.

The feeders have been busy all day.  Sparrows are bullies!

Here's to staying warm and dry and safe inside.  Toes crossed that everyone has all the bread, milk, and beer they need!

As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*


  1. Yikes on the keyboard. I have a cheap'o laptop so I can't comment on the mac book.
    Ha ha, that Cardinal does seem to have an attitude doesn't he.

  2. I feel your pain about the plant watering... when I was young I naively hung a spider plant over the television. I watered it while the family was watching Saturday morning cartoon... drip and poof! The tv was dead!
    I have a 2009 Macbook pro and love it... although it is now slowing down and doing funky stuff.


I don't allow anonymous postings, but otherwise talk to me. I love to hear from you.
