The supports for my shelves came in the mail. They will be up on the painted walls later on today, and I will have Room For Stuff. It will be excellent. (Others will have to wait for me to finish painting the laundry room, but that;s okay. That’ll be done soonish.)


In other news, remember that cat I adopted a few months ago? Margery has had a very difficult time adjusting to life with two other cats in the house. She has very gradually been getting used to them, but was still getting into fights and showing angry, frightened, or stressful behaviour. It was pretty clear that, while she could eventually come to accept living with other cats, she would never be truly happy or comfortable around them.


She’s been farmed out to some good friends in Amherst Cove. She loves living with them–in fact, her first night in their house, she didn’t stop purring–and they are happy to have a small happy fuzzy cuddly thing in their lives. 


Just unloaded a big bisque firing. My shelves have never been so stuffed. I’ve started shuffling the old pieces left behind by previous potters and putting work waaaaaay up along the very top shelves.

There’ll be a glaze this week, which will take care of some of it… A good chunk of it will be a wholesale order, so not only will I have shelfspace, but I’ll have some spending money for NCECA. (So… I’ll probably spend it on ceramics…)
