"it was early morning yesterday...I was up before the dawn..."

OK, a couple of random thoughts, alright?
One, I ordered this book on the weekend.  A friend loaned the wife a copy and I started flipping through it and I was like EGAD! And stopped flipping through it and came to the laptop and ordered it for meself.
If you have known me for awhile, you know Beatrix Potter is my hero. A wonderful illustrator, and I love how she preserved thousands of acres of the English Lakes District and gave it to the country, lovely and protected.

Another thought? YES, I have a crazy-busy cat-dog babysitting schedule today, of my 4 regulars?  3 of them today!  Yogi, Nook and Scoop...that does not happen too often... and temps are gonna go below zero soon...

And do you recognize the title of this post?  It was one of those moments, I awaken from a sound sleep...and start thinking "wonder how the pots look, they fired Monday?" partly because it is always exciting to look at freshly fired pots BUT I had trouble with a part and wondered if all was good in there... YES, all is REALLY good looking... mor eon that later...
