|Would like this for my Thanksgiving Table|
It's been a while since I've posted, but again... nothing terribly interesting to post about. DH and I did get our flu shots this week. Hurray! And so far, no reaction at all... just a tiny bit sore when I lay on that arm. We get the regular flu vaccine, not the souped up one for the over 65. I've heard that some do get reactions from that one and so far, the regular one has worked well for us.
We've had a lot of rain here in North Texas, but nothing like some places are getting. Florida really got hit hard with Hurricane Michael. We lived in Florida for the first 2 years after college... on Satellite Beach, then Melbourne. This was in 1968. Got to watch a lot of rockets being launched. But in general, we never really got any bad weather... one hurricane that I can remember. Those poor people who live where Hurricane Michael hit directly on the Gulf side will take a long time to recover. They will need all the help they can get.
I know that a lot of people don't believe in Climate Change. But really... something is happening. We seem to be getting an unusual amount of catastrophic weather.
But it is October and Halloween will be here in a few weeks... and we're already seeing not only Halloween decorations, but some Christmas here and there. DH and I don't do a lot for Halloween... a few pumpkins on a bale of hay out front and I found a cute sign for the front door today. And of course we do open our doors for trick or treaters on the 31st. But we've gotten fewer and fewer over the last few years. I think most go to Church or School related Halloween parties these days. I think this is safer myself.
I think I've mentioned before that we have 2 black feral mama cats that have both black and Siamese kittens. The one in the back has 1 black and 2 Siamese and the one in the front has 2 black and 3 Siamese looking kittens. Here is a picture of the 5 kittens who have taken to sleeping in the kitty basket on the front porch at night. It's taken with my iPhone off the Nest Doorbell site so it's not terribly clear. But aren't they cute?
The mama didn't have those kittens in our yard... but brought them by when they were about 6-8 weeks old.
I'm finishing this post up this morning (Sunday). DH is in the process of making a huge pot of red beans and rice - my all time favorite food! (house smells wonderful) And I'm working on pottery projects... finished black birding and now all need a final firing (windchime pieces and Tiki).

My new project that I just started on this morning is kind of architectural in nature. It's 3 tiles that will sit one on top of each other on the wall and end up looking like an apartment building (I hope).
And I will leave you with my little sculpture of a fox... haven't even underglazed him yet. (Foxes are my next favorite animal to sculpt next to chickens).
Have a great Sunday!
