Before I was able to think about writing I saw the word “kiln” and thought I would share my first pieces of pottery from the class David bought me for my birthday. Not great but I am happy with them. It’s hard to really capture the colors since I’m not setting up any fancy photoshoot!
I am not keen on the color design I used on the “ashtray-looking” piece. I didn’t know that how it would look when it was finally out of the kiln. If I leave it outdoors it will eventually grow some sort of algae that looks like kelp. I just haven’t decided where to put it. Maybe even a coaster for under a plant.

Your three things today are: CHARITY CURTAIN PERPLEX
A curtain of confusion veiled her eyes as she watched the scene unfold in front of her. The old man, dressed in a dirty, torn overcoat held out a crooked hand, clad with cut off gloves exposing dirty fingernails, to the little girl in front of him. He was handing her a tissue, clean and white, to dry up her tears, falling as she looked up at the beautiful Christmas tree before her. To see this token of charity, in sort of “typical” reversal was amazing and Betty felt a tear roll down her own cheek. Why she was so perplexed made her heart skip a beat, realizing she didn’t have to have pity for this man who was so charming despite his outward appearance.
Di is the host of Three Things Challenge. A daily challenge that I really wish I did more often, since it is a great exercise to keep my brain in “writing mode”! Check it out here
Your three things today are: CABLE BOOK MANUAL
Life Not Online
If I look at all the stuff that makes my world go round I’d think I was a cable buff with manuals abound! ‘Cause everywhere I turn to see there’s paper everywhere With paper eyes watching me with their paper-whitish stare. But then I go and grab my bag of trash loaded with junk and throw them like a dirty rag with a soft papery “thunk”.
