Spring finally happened, that's what!
On Friday it started getting warmer so I was able to wedge some clay. On Saturday I threw these little guys....I started with about two pounds of clay for each. The white earth is a departure for me. I use it for hand building, but I don't think I have thrown with it for at least five years. But I had a dream about a bunch of little white teapots altered into various shapes and decorated with slips and underglazes while in soft leather stage. Kristen Kieffer calls it suede, which I think is an apt description. Then I saw Gary's ewers, and was looking at some little cruets that were my Nanu's. So these little guys are going to be some sort of vessels with spouts and handles. By early afternoon they'll be ready to play with. We'll see, Grasshopper.......we'll see.
Lo and behold the daffodils have finally decided to bloom. These are by the slab my house is built on which is the warmest part of the garden. The others out in the yard are only up a few inches. The bloom season gets stretched a bit this way.
The crocuses are going strong. I don't know what happened to the snow drops. I think little underground critters ate them.
I made a lasagna last night using the no-cook noodles for the first time, definitely an idea whose time has come. I think these may be the best thing since sliced bread. They are just as tasty as the regular noodles, but without having to dealing with wet noodles slipping and sliding around. Not for nothing do we say as limp as a wet noodle!
Meanwhile Winter, Aloysius and KikiLaSois sleep through everything.....Except the smell of lasagna!
If you celebrate Easter may it be the most joyous of days.
And happy spring days to all.
