This is what we woke up to this morning... Tornado Watch alerts on phone, weather radio, and TV. Not unusual for this time of year and to be honest, I've always liked the rain and stormy weather. We grew up with Hurricanes in Louisiana and as a child, they were accepted as part of life. Nowadays... guess it's age (isn't it always?) but stormy weather (especially tornadoes) unnerve me a bit.
I have done a few things around the house... made coffee, cleaned the kitchen, took out some ingredients to make a blueberry custard pie, and made sure that what needs to be in the 'tornado safe middle bathroom' is there in case the Watch turns into a Warning, etc.
But I can't 'settle'.... so I decided to write this. It's probably going to be a hodge-podge of stuff since I've nothing special in mind. Suppose we start with one of the little fish mobiles I finished. Here's a pic.
This one was done with a Potter's Choice Glaze called blue rutile.
Another was made with PC Glaze called seaweed. These are not windchimes, but mobiles that swing loosely with wire between the pieces. I'm hoping the outside ferals might enjoy having them hanging in the trees.
Also you may already know this, but I came across this poster on Pinterest and thought that I'd post it as some may not be familiar with this process. One of our ferals is marked like this. We call him 'square ear'.... but it's obvious he's been notched. Most of the ones that come by our yard are well behaved - but occasionally we get a mean one that likes to fight. We have one now that luckily isn't around much... he's a long-legged skinny black feral that likes to cause trouble. When he shows up, DH tries to run him off.
Another recent visitor to our yard :
This little guy was 'trucking it' across the front walk the other day. Snails are known to be 'slow'... but this little one was really moving along. I took his pic for my youngest grand daughter who is attuned to all creatures and would be fascinated with him.
This next poster I came across reminded me so much of her with the expression on the kid's face that I had to send it off to my son.
Well, I guess that's enough rambling for now. Maybe I'll get back to making my blueberry custard pie.
Have a wonderful week-end. I do appreciate your visits and giving me the opportunity to get my mind off of the weather this morning.
