Usually it’s a little hard sometimes to go to the studio on a beautiful, sunny day because it is kind of a dark place with not enough windows, but it was the perfect place to hide out from the heat today. I tried to work in the garden, but by 10am it was too hot. The studio was as cool as I thought it would be and I sat down and started making bowls.
There was a big birthday party/barbecue going on in the park next to the studio, and a kid’s ball game up on the hill above. There was lots of happy noise right outside the door where kids were playing in the shade of the building’s overhang and when I was leaving, I had to step over piles of candy and bubblegum from the pinata. Bubblegum smells like good memories. After I drove away I wished I had asked for a piece to keep in my car. I could hang it from the mirror like an air freshener.
I came home and watched some more You tube to see what I was doing wrong and got enticed by the thought of a Bison trimming tool. I think my throwing would be much improved if I had a Bison trimming tool Doesn’t that make sense?
This bench with the nasturtium and cilantro flowers shows the overgrown state of my garden. I have been waiting for the winter vegetables to go to seed because I like to use my own seeds, but the waiting is cutting into the new seedlings time.
