Snowed in? To be honest it doesn’t take much because of the slope of the driveway and the incline at the bottom of our little private road…but yep, snowed in. An inch of snow could make trying to get down the hill interesting, but by 8 in the AM it was at 4 inches and forecasted to continue until about 10 last night. Oh Covid not even you can get me any more isolated than yesterday.
I keep checking the forecast for next Tuesday. It’s the day we are scheduled for our second vaccination. We’ve cleared the calendar that afternoon and, hearing that the Moderna vaccine has a bit of a kick the next day. We cleared almost everything on Wednesday too. I’m keeping Shenanigan’s of a Studio Pottery on the calendar on Wednesday (LIVE 5-6 PM Pacific on FB)…cuz I’m no whimp. We’ll see if my Ironman attitude holds up or if I’m curled up on the couch with a tub of ice cream.
Bisque loads of pottery are going in and out of the kiln nearly everyday as I prepare for a series of glaze loads. Typically, a bisque load will generate two kiln loads of glazed pieces. I’m hoping the first glazed pieces can come from the kiln on Sunday, then Monday and Tuesday…skipping Wednesday and Thursday because of the vaccination. Planning helps.
News of Puppy Madison. It’s hard to think of her as a puppy. Although she is 5 ½ months old, she is just short of 50#...the vet is predicting between 70 and 90 when she reaches “adult stature.” That’s about 20 lbs more than everyone originally thought. She has puppy skills, a teenage attitude and is longer, taller and heavier than her sister by another mother, Montana (our 15 yo Brittany Spaniel)…and she found that she has a big dog bark. She shocked herself with her own bark. Luckily she uses that voice sparingly.
Maybe if the vaccine kicks me a tad more than I would like, I'll get that ice cream and maybe...maybe not...share it with Madison.
