Oversized mug made in May’s pottery workshop. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the differences in color actually indicate differences in texture where I used texturing tools on the slab before curving it into mug form.

Cloudy, hot, humid

I’m still waiting for the damn thunderstorm! This humidity just sucks all the life out of me.

Didn’t get much done yesterday — well, that’s not true, I got a lot done, but just not what I intended. I had to retreat the the air conditioned bedroom pretty quickly because of the heat and humidity. Tried to get some work done there.

Took Elsa to her Reiki session. The practitioner is really pleased with the progress, and thinks the work we’re doing at home, along with the crystal therapy, is giving her a boost, so that she’s healing even more quickly than if she just came in for sessions. I don’t have to take her back for about another two and a half weeks. She’s still eating well, and the work done on her sinuses has helped with the mucus. She was lively and playful and funny in the office, and when we got home, she climbed into the kitchen window where the workmen were (on the outside) and fussed until they stopped what they were doing, I had to open the window so they could talk and pet her through the screen, and she just lapped up the attention. Violet hissed at them and ran away, and Iris, little chicken that she is, hid, but Elsa made new friends. As she always does. I should be as outgoing and accepting as she is.

I was late cooking dinner, until after they left, because, even though I’m annoyed with them, if they were hanging out in front of the window when I made dinner, I’d have felt obligated to feed them. Yeah, I know, it makes no sense.

I meant to spend twenty minutes in the afternoon doing some research and consolidating some information. Next thing I knew, it was nine hours later.

I meant to go to a museum today, and then to a friend’s, but it’s too hot to leave the cats. I’ll run the air in the morning, and get caught up on some correspondence that has to go out today, and maybe go to my friend’s in time for dinner.

I spoke to the pharmacy and Elsa’s refill was sent out yesterday — hopefully it won’t take yet another week to get here.

Great first writing session this morning — nearly 2K. Let’s hope it sets the tone for the rest of the day.

  1. I can squeeze in a quick thunderstorm dance if you would like …?

    Elsa’s doing great, keep at it.

    And I love your pottery.

  2. It’s that caring for the world thing we water signs do. 🙂

    Love the pottery photos. Keep ’em coming!

    Still praying for that thunderstorm….

  3. I’m loving the tidbits about Elsa making friends. And so happy that she’s feeling better. I understand about feeling obligated to feed people if you’re cooking and they’re around.

    I hope today is productive and peaceful for you.
