I originally meant to take this in the early morning, so the sun would be behind it (get it? The sun? Behind the sun? So it would look like a little sun? In the sun? Meta!) But I forgot, and ultimately think this one turned out fine. Besides, I think to show off the shiny more I’d have to break out my camera-camera, not just my phone-camera (which is what I take most of my daily photos with these days).
Yesterday was spent firing the kiln and cleaning the house – not only is Lynn coming up today to help me wrap soap (and eat good food – forecast calls for lunch at Chopstix and dinner at Emilianos) but we’re getting the house appraised today because we’re trying to refinance. So mostly I puttered yesterday, going through small piles of things and putting things where they belong and sweeping and whatnot. Tim completely cleaned off the back porch when he got home; I do love a clean back porch. When I unload the kiln later I’ll try to take a wide shot to show off how empty it looks.
Aaaaaaaaand, that’s all I got this morning. I need to rush off and sweep the front porch, open the kiln and inspect pieces, and do a few last-minute bits of straightening. You crazy kids have a fun day!
