the smell of wax on a cold november night...

it's been a hectic week around our house, i'm trying to keep working while dealing with a bad cold... feeling better today, and finally got a good amount accomplished. my kiln is loaded and ready to go...nothing like that smell of the wax burning off as it heats up! i'll be firing this kiln, and hopefully two more before the celebration the weekend of nov. 22. i'm down in the studio tonight, throwing a ton of salt and pepper sets to top off the kiln. 

on a completely different subject......the other night, was woken up in the middle of the night by a big pack of coyotes out in the woods just behind the kiln shed! i wish i could've gotten a picture, but i wasn't about to go outside. it sounded eerie and exciting at the same time--enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up! gotta love living way out here!!!!

the first time I heard coyotes was when Mark and I were camping across county in about 1973...the Hippie phase- well maybe I never outgrew that- but it was erie. Funny you should say this because I heard one here the other night, And it was erie!
Keep firing- I need some christmas presents for the women in the family- they love jewelry!

Hey the tiles look great. We've got coyotes around here too and they were yipping it up pretty close by the other night. I'd really like to see them, but doubt I will as they seem pretty elusive.

I've never seen a coyote, but I've heard plenty. The first time, I was like, "What the hell is that?"
