Him, " I don't need a cake."
I think I can figure that one out.
There are a batch of cowboy cookies resting in the refrigerator for me to bake later.
On another note, we played tag with the weather while we figured out the best day to fire the kiln. I think we found it would be today even though it is his birthday. He was up, not at the crack of dawn, but somewhere around 1 am to start the kiln. I did not notice until I woke up cold and alone at 5 am.
The plan was to load part of the kiln yesterday and then finish off today making it 2 easy days. Then as I was listening to the radio they talked about today being a good day weather wise with winds moving back in on Thursday. Time to crank it up and change the plan. We just kept up the pace and had the kiln loaded with the door bricked by 4:30.
Today it is his birthday and although a person should get the day off on their birthday he has a witch of a boss and working it is.
To help him through the firing there will be cookies. What else could a person want???
A little bit of a close up shot of mugs and things.
Middle stack in and ready time for a break.
A closer look.
Wee teapots, fingers crossed that they come up and the top ash glaze does not run too much.
Him, " Too late!"
Fire today, cool down Thursday, Friday, open on Saturday.
Come on over and we will let you help.
Happy Birthday Cowboy!
