Super Dry Clay is What's Waiting For Me Tonight

I left some clay out in the studio for recycling purposes last Friday night, as I figured a quick trip in on Saturday wouldn't be out of line.

But then that quick didn't happen.  Or on Sunday.  So I wrote it off until my Monday night studio time.

Which didn't happen, because life did instead, and there's nothing you can really do about that.

So, what would have been, probably, 12 pounds of nice usable clay will be completely dried out and I'll have to start from scratch.  At least, starting from scratch is the best possible option.  Worst case scenario is that the clay isn't completely dried out, but only "black hard" in which case it won't soak any more moisture in, and it's still quite aways from being dry, and definitely too hard to use. 

And I must apologize to any guilders for my leaving clay out on the drying slab for 5 days.  It's horribly rude and selfish of me, and I'm quite sorry.

And since I've been a horrible potter, and a horrible blogger, I present you a drawing.  A doodle representing the notes of a meeting at work.  After going for some time on it, I discovered that it was beginning to resemble a pachyderm, and that amused me, so I ran with it.  Here goes, and hope you're having a great week!

I love your drawing, and I think I love its tini-ness even more.

Luke, thanks so much for your comments on marriage! I feel so blessed to have a husband who I know will be there for me. I always know my great example of real married life came from watching you and your wife! You guys showed me the daily grind of marriage as well as the daily blessings in such a short amount of time! I'm thankful for the example and love I witnessed when working with and visiting you two! You guys are great!
