I have had the flu for the last week and a half. I have read several novels, watched way too many movies and inane tv shows, done half a book of sudoku puzzles, taken handfuls of vitamins, drank tons of tea and chicken soup and it still isn’t gone.
I don’t like to complain, but Really! enough is enough. I don’t get flu shots because I never get the flu. (ahem). I might have to rethink that decision. At least it has been cold and rainy most of the time I have been home.
I ‘m not one of those sweet sick persons. I don’t like to lay around all day but Gerti has been trying to help me with that with her modeling of contentment.
I have been thinking about things I want to do with clay. Nothing kinky.
But before I go off in another direction I have to finish some things like making more little bird bowls for a couple of people who want a set.
This seems like a simple matter. However, these bowls were made by slumping the clay into a condiment bowl from what was probably a set of mid-century, heavy duty cafeteria ware – just the right size and shape. It’s gone. A victim of the thorough trashing of my car when it was stolen. Why was it in the car? I keep asking myself that right along with the question of why they had to throw everything away. Did they think if they did the car would be theirs to keep? Anyway, you also might think it would be easy to replace a little cafeteria condiment bowl. Well, I have been scouring the second hand stores and so far nada. I have tried some others but, without getting too melodramatic, it’s just not the same (she whined).
By the way, Diana, who bought the bird bowl set, left a comment the other day about the “hella darling” bowls, and that combination of words brings a smile to my face each time I think of it.
