4 Cats

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/disagree/

No, we don’t have 4 Cats now.  Last night, friend Judy invited me, as well as friends Trish and Suzanne, to 4Cats to … wait for it … make bowls!

4Cats looks like a fun place to get really messy (and artistic)

Here are a few before’s of the wheel and accessories – before they were completely covered in splattered mud and water.

And here is the first lump of clay I worked with.  Before slapping vigourously on the table…

And after.

sept272016p

I tried in vain to make a bowl out of this sucker, but eventually had only enough clay left for a thimble, so started again.

Sadly, I couldn’t take pictures during the experience (not without drowning my phone in wet clay), but I should have taken a picture of the complete MESS left behind.  Alas, I did not, so you’ll have to make due with a picture of my creation, “Man’s inhumanity to man” – my first piece of thrown art, which will soon be fired and glazed so I can present it to the world.

I’m exhausted now!

Sure hope this week gets better…

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/unfinished/

Well, that Monday sent me off to a crappy start for the week.  I’d say it can’t get any worse, but well, Tuesday.  At least tonight I get to have a little fun with clay…details tomorrow.

In the meantime,

Randomness for a Monday morning

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/dilemma/

So, it’s Monday, and I have a lot of catching up to do on the old blog this week.  But, before I do, here are a few random pictures I haven’t posted yet…at least I don’t think I have.

Jasper.

A little wine on the deck

I don’t know what this is, and I don’t think I want to.

The last flowers in my garden by night…

I want some!!

Last night we BBQ’d rack of lamb.

sept242016k

I delude myself into thinking Elliot just wants to get outside to hang with us…

sept242016g

Now I’m wondering if it’s more about the BBQ…

Caturday!

Wish every day was Caturday!!

It’s the (second) most wonderful time of the year!!

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/generous/

I do love fall, or autumn as some people call it.  Doesn’t matter what it’s called, it’s a time of colour, and freshness in the air, and Hallowe’en…and Canadian Thanksgiving with turkey and stuffing (or as some people call it, although I can’t for the life of me understand why, dressing – or is dressing the stuffing-wanna-be people cook on the stove??  What’s up with that???).  Anyway, fall.  Almost time for Christmas commercials on TV!!
