The earth shook, Irene is coming, and the glaze load was a failure. I guess a failed glaze load is inconsequential in the great scheme of things. But it is quite a frustration. Lazy Daze Arts and Craft Show is scheduled for this Saturday and from the weatherman chatter, it sounds like Hurricane Irene may be attending.
We have been attending craft shows since 2008. So far, we have had high temperatures, thunderstorms, and bad attendance; but we haven’t had a show to cancel. It is too early to know whether the show will be held; but, this is the reality of outdoor shows. And, bad glaze loads are the reality of the pottery cycle as well. In all of this, I am very thankful that the earthquake wasn’t more severe and I continue to be overwhelmed by the blessings the Lord has given me – many of which come from being a potter.
“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34
