Well- as most of you know- we had a fire last year due to being hit by lighting and the result was we lost our main work building.
We took off time after the Christmas rush to finish rebuilding and get back to work.
It took us much longer then we expected, but we were moving back in in just over 6 months from the fire.
We are back to work- as we best we can be- we are still fumbling around some days and we say about the newly rebuilt shop, " it is the same, but different." We made changes and we are still trying to find out if we like those changes.
So- with that said some days are productive and other days are........ let's just say they are.
Today we loaded the big kiln- sigh of relief for me.
I get tomorrow to pull the taxes into some form of intelligence while Mark fires the kiln. ( lucky Man!)
But- this is kiln one for the year- it seems a long time coming.
Fingers are crossed and we have checked and rechecked the winds for tomorrow.
( Wind plays hell with the reduction.)
and-yes this picture is crooked I can see that!
Think of me- I am locking myself to the paper work tomorrow. I would really like to have that off my plate so we can really get back to making pots!
Oh and a big PS- have I reminded you again to get Business Insurance- I know you don't want to think about it - but you should.
Don't whine, just do it!
Another note thanks again to CERF and our local potters Relief fund.
