GETTIN' HOT IN HEY-AHHHHH!

OUCH.
HOT here, already.
AND my kiln made it to 2099 and just errored out...
YEPPERS, I believe I've got some EXCHANGIN' to do...
ELEMENTS that is...
WELL... at least I have my health...(knock on wood...poo poo poo....very superstitious...)

SO the kids had school close unexpectedly at 1pm...
AND it will close at 1 pm tomorrow too...
EVIDENTLY there is not enough air conditioned spaces for these growing rug rats...
SO... they came home.
AND went in the river:
FRICK AND FRACK:




















SO I took one look at puppy Chai...
AND I went in too... all the way in... and she came in too.. and swam...



















NO photos of us in the water...
BECAUSE I left my phone where it would be safe from the water...
WHILE I was drying her off and showering, I rested it in the garage on the hood of my husband's car...
HOWEVER, he failed to tell me he was going to take off for a meeting...
IN his car.
SO... I called him in a panic( about a mile after he left...)
THEN we both searched for the phone.
AND FOUND IT.
BUT this is what it looked like:















SADLY, It needs to be replaced.
HAPPILY, I will be using the insurance I pay for every month
BUT, I believe they will not insure me anymore because that is 2 phones in about 6 months.
BUT, I HAVE MY HEALTH. (knock on wood...poo poo poo....very superstitious...

MEANWHILE..
THESE are the latest in the studio:










NOW I am working with Standard's Brooklyn RED.
LOVE it.
MESSIEST CLAY EVAH...
BUT, I do love it... more photos to follow...
AND
I sold a few things the past few days...
EVERYONE IGNORED my sale...
OH WELL.

ADDITIONALLY...
I made the top 50 ceramic blogs from this cool chick's LIST!

ALL of my faves are there...
COOLIO.
HELPS beat the heat.
