Loading up the workhorse

 We loaded up the kiln on Saturday and then had our very own Mother's day firing.
Mark was up early to light the burners and get things going.
I always think I am going to sleep in but find myself awake around 4:30.
The kiln fired well as far as we could tell.
I always marvel that we do this again and again without really knowing what is really behind the door until it is opened.

The unknown.
It's a bit like jumping off a cliff at times, or stepping off the deep end, you just do it.

Things that get done during cool down.
Cleaning the house, paying of the bills, watching a movie, pinching some babies, reflecting on life, you know, the usual.

Tune back in around Wednesday when the doors come down.
