He's back and we been busy!

Gerry's home from the protests safe and sound. Lots of unpacking and sorting of equipment inside so I worked outside. I had glazing to finish up, loaded up the kiln for a ^6 tomorrow, I have some funky experimental commercial glazes in bright colors that were supposed to be for spring flower pots, but I never got to it, so they are now summer bright colors. What a contrast to my rusty old barns, I should have been born a Gemini, wonder if the fact that my dad was a Gemini has any bearing on my multiple personalities?! I also recycled and wedged up a five gallon bucket of clay scraps, washed bunches of clothes, made some homemade bread, and cooked a farmer's market supper of corn on the cob, fried okra, and mashed potatoes. How southern is that?! Oh, and strawberry rhubarb jam for the bread, from the market also.Yum!
Here's Gerry repacking his gear. This is pretty much a daily occurrence around here.

Hey what kind of shoes are those Gerry has on??

Tracey Broome said...

I knew there was some reason we were on parallel paths Judy, I seem to always have Geminis around me somewhere! Ron, the shoes are North Face and they are very cool shoes! I asked, he can't remember where they came from.

I'm a virgo, but the stars weren't out the night I was born... & I put my personality down to being born in a thunderstorm!
Never had okra..(not some sort of a whale is it...? Joking!).
I really like those barns too.

Thanks Tracey. I'll look them up. I am sort of like Carrie Bradshaw when it comes to shoes.
