Yet Another Snow Day

See the blue blob, in the upper right? Augusta is right in the middle of the deepest, bluest part right now. And what am I doing? Unloading the bisque kiln! Well, after I shovel it out. Again.

Oh, yeah, there are other things I could be doing. I brought some high-grolleg porcelain home from Portland Pottery, because I got a bit of a yearning to make perfume bottles. But I am anxious to start waxing and glazing -- to get this next soda firing on the road! My eagerness is in part due to how very well the bisque fire went -- shot right up like a rocket. 08 was down six hours from when I finished the candle and started firing in earnest. And, also, I will need to shovel it sometime. Waiting until spring is really not an option.
