ouuuu doggies

That's what my grandpop used to say. He'd use it in many different ways, like when he won a game of cards "ouuuu doggies" or if something bad happened shaking his head"ouuu doggies". So today while looking at my to-do list and the still cooling kiln I said "ouuu doggies" I've got alot to do. I dug this hole, and then life made it bigger. So if I can only unload that still hot kiln, glaze everything and get it all re-loaded today, I can bring that work to Baltimore on friday. And if that can happen today, I can sew up another table cloth, a drape for my booth and work on table signage for the one of a kind work I'm obsessed over right now. I can also strategize the packing and making sure I am not only ready but rested enough to do this show! And then there's all the life stuff...
But let's stay upbeat! I have 3 days to get everything done, and really that last load of work won't make or break the show so if it's too hot to pack I can bring it to the next show or lure customers to my online shop for one of a kind loveliness. Anyhow's I'm just clicking in : )
xoxo, Linda

I once had a similar dilema. I was waiting all day for the bisque to cool and then I was up glazing and loading the kiln until the very wee hours. I woke in the morning to find it unfired due to a busted relay. I find that no matter how many to do lists I make I always ending up pushing myself and my expectations about 30% further anyway. Good luck on getting it all done.

Hi Karissa, I did it! I got all that work out, glazed and back in and on by 12:30am!!! I am waiting for it to reach temp now, ahhh! I also have the other one cooling, so I slept in this morning : ) I'll try to post some pics before I head to Baltimore.

Jim and Jerry, Thanks!!! The show organizers are working so hard, I hope to report back on a successful show.
