Hello August

How does it happen that August is here and I somehow feel as if I am waking from a deep sleep and contemplating all those things that I was going to do in the month of July. Oh, I know I have been working, but to tell you the truth I could be working harder.
Yes, I could.
Somehow I find that I can easily distract myself, like now, and fill my time with many other things. Like this morning. I baked bread, cut up peaches and cleaned the kitchen all the time thinking I would be at work by 9.
Then it was I will be at work by 9:15....okay, how about 9:30.maybe- 10 and I can still get a days work in we are only glazing.
See how this works? If I am not out there between 8:30-9 the bargaining starts.

 I did make it out there and work is happening, just not as soon as I thought. What I am doing now?
 Well, I don't work for a monster boss, I am allowed a break.
I am taking a break.
Join me.

Beer Mugs- bigger and better

Pots going in glazes

what happens to my wheel when I am making tiles

 I did get through the garden on my way to work and I am getting a kick out of all these different gourds.
This is going to be fun to see what comes out of the mix. I like this green one above.
And look at this pale yellow on yellow.
I think it is time to get out the seed packet and look at what is there.
I am so glad I did not toss it out after planting so I would know a little about what the varieties are.

Shoot, I had better go back to work.
I have to at least pretend I work here.

Those little baby plants are so endearing, I always get a kick out of seeing them grow up. You do the best swirls of glaze on your pots.

Jeez, where did July go!? I hated when little ol' ladies would complain about how fast time goes... Now I am one, and YES, it is going fast!

Sounds like our recent discussion... keeping house vs work that helps pay the bills. I can think of worse quandaries, though :o).
