so bad you have to have fun...

Pretty average January for us. I mean, we have seen Januarys with a LOT MORE snow, but we have had plenty, and we have had COLDER Januaries, but I mean, the below zero stuff persists...

Does complaining help?  It probably brings out the more devilish side of Mother Nature, actually "Ooooh, send another gust of wind straight down the back of Gary's pants, I'll show him COLD!"

I wrote this haiku yesterday after running out there, post snowstorm.  It really must be true, because I had asked myself "why does every passing car smile and wave at me?"

Running in the cold,
People think my grimace of
Pain is a smile.

Here are some great pots.  Cold weather and being inside is highly conducive to works of great art, don't you think? There are times when its like GOOD GOLLY put me on THAT beach NOW!

Love the glazing effects!

Lori Buff said...

Oh, no running in below zero that’s curl up in front of a fireplace weather.

Barbara Rogers said...

I really like spherical shaped pitchers, and geese, those crystals in the glaze are fabulous!

Michèle Hastings said...

Look at those beautiful crystal in that glaze combo, wow!
