It’s been raining pretty much steadily since Saturday night or so. We got almost seven inches of rain on Sunday, and at least another four yesterday. And yesterday we even had a few hours of sunlight! Today, it looks like No Sun For You, and I do believe it’s gotten darker since I woke up this morning.
For those whose geek-fu is a little off, in this photo I am wearing a shirt (from a science fiction convention) drawn by Jamie O’Barr, and it’s of The Crow. One of the key lines was from a song from his band, “it can’t rain all the time”… it seems these days that actually, yes. It can. Which I’m fine with – we’re still under drought conditions and need the rain – I’m just hoping a sinkhole doesn’t open up under the house. Yay! Another thing to worry about! Thanks, overactive imagination!
I haven’t taken any pictures in the last couple days; mostly I’ve been back and forth between glazing ceramics and sitting at the computer catching up on things… and even though I do take the occasional “scenes from a work day” photo, that would be too boring even for me. “Here’s a photo of watching glaze dry! It’s exactly as fun as watching paint dry! Only with a harder shell after kiln firing!” Yeah. Whoo.
Speaking of kilns, I fired it yesterday, so should go see if it’s ready to open. Check the work blog later for photos!
