The tall ones
I really like what he did with the neck of these.
I thought it really finished off the look well.
As soon as these dry they are heading to the bisque kiln.
This kiln load will have at least 6 tall lamps in it. That means we will not need as many shelves to fill the kiln.
Instead of the usual 21 we might get by with 19.
My work for those shelves will start today when I pull out my planning board and see who makes the cut.
On another note the weather yesterday was a pleasant surprise for us. It never got beastly hot, then when afternoon storms rolled in, the wind picked up and brought with it a nice breeze with a bit of a drop in temperature.
It was a good night for sleeping with the windows open as the frogs sung us to sleep.
I know that many people find the chorus to be a bit much, but, for me, it is like a lullaby.
I have an app on my kindle of night noise that I have used when I am off somewhere else trying to sleep. I was using it on my last trips off and then the next morning comes up an offer that asks me if I would like the potty app.
I had to laugh.
Not yet, I thought, I am good in that department.
The butterflies are crazy flying all over the place. I have been sitting out where I can just watch them.
We finally had a good tomato sandwich this week! I am using these!!! because it was so good!! They are very late this year and small but tasted so good!! Homemade bread with homegrown tomato and dukes mayonnaise. !!!!!!!!!!
I like to pluck some basil as I am walking over to the house and toss that on as well. !!!!
But- don't eat these!
We also grilled eggplant and corn last night.
I love summer foods.
What about you?
Anything good coming from the garden?
We did our grilled veggies like small plates.
Eating one food at a time in order to savory how good it was.
Time to flit off to work and coffee.
