The propane guy is here, and you know what that means: today is the day I light the kiln and try again to complete a soda firing. I am far more anxious this time, for obvious reasons: if it doesn't work, I am out of ideas of what to try next and probably out of commission until March or so, after I get some of these expenses paid down.
Anyway. Those are bad-luck thoughts! Start the first burner, brew up the rainforest nut, and we're off.
