I'm up early....with the birds!
Every year, they build on this downspout..which becomes quite a feat as it's slippery and the nesting materials won't stick. I end up with a two foot heap of grass and mud on my deck before they finally finish! Pretty but not very bright birds!
I want to get some things done before it gets too hot. Outside things mostly. I love mornings for the sunshine...the coolness...the chirping birds. But I'm a night owl, so the two conflict. Sadly, my hubby is a morning person and can't understand why I'd want to stay curled up under the covers instead of riding my bike for 4 miles (like he's been doing). I should do it...I know I should...but just give me a few more winks and...'course I fall back to sleep, regretting the fact that I SHOULD have hopped out of bed the minute I woke up!
So here I am up at 6:oo, sipping on my morning coffee and pouring over pottery stuff on the net. How to throw a cylinder. I kid you not. That's what I'm doing. Viewing google images...searching for a fabulous cup shape (not happy with what I did yesterday) and as usual getting distracted and 'off course' when I am suddenly whisked away to a new and wonderful page of some potter I've yet to find (and believe me...I have found a LOT of wonderful potters in here!)
But I won't stay long...I swear I won't! I'm finishing this coffee (which is now coolish because I've forgotten to sip on 'cos I've become so immersed in online pots) and then I'm going to do a little deadheading, wipe the fluff from my patio table (why or WHY did we mistakingly plant those dreadful poplar trees that spew that nasty white fuzz like snowflakes in a blizzard!)and then I'll unload my kiln. Can't wait to see my bowls! Then I'm going to vacuum my house because it's going to be a hot one today and even hotter tomorrow 33C! "A clean house is a cool house". That's what my mom always says. Whether it's true or not, it's so ingrained in my brain that I believe it to be so! So, I'll vacuum, put away a few things and do I quick swipe of the bathrooms. Clean and cool....
That dreaded fuzz....I think it's over for this year!
I had to include a picture of my climbing roses, which until this year haven't done much. I hope they'll grow to the top of my under eave!!
Off I go!
Have a glorious day! 'Til next time...
