a couple of RANDOM thoughts....

OK, 5 on Saturday?  "You're up, Gary?  You must love coffee...".
I do.  And I like getting up early.  But today? a) there was a crash a minute ago, which is why I got up. I go downstairs and the cat is MEWLING to a broken lamp on the floor.  I am not angry or upset:  it is cold and he was probably chasing a mouse.  Old house + oncoming winter = mice in the walls.
b)  the kiln!  I wanted to crawl back into bed and go to sleep, but the kiln!  I had fired it yesterday and it is cool enough to peek into...and there are many fragile little experiments in there that seem like they are is still pretty hot in there, it will cool until 2-3 this afternoon, but I am excited :)
c)  I made an airplane cup!  Sorta steampunk looking, hmm?  In the top of this kiln firing is an actual clay airplane I made and it looks GOOD... this one actually does something..need to make another, right?
Have an awesome Saturday!

I think Spike and Aloysius have some E.S.P. feline communication skills. Aloysius managed to pull down a clamp gro-light over my desk while we were outside figuring out how to get the lime tree inside.
I'm loving the airplane cup and the airplane. There's a story there somewhere. The cup that wanted to fly?

That cup is uplifting.

I'm in love with the ariplane cup!

Awesome plane mug!

I hope Spike keeps those mousies far away from me!

Cats love getting into stuff when we are trying to get our beauty rest! The airplane cups are genius; love this idea!

YEah, you have to take the good with the bad when it comes to cats and mice--I used to always have bloodstains on our front porch from our cat's kills, but I enjoyed never having mice in the garage or on the porch.
