We're Having A Heat Wave, A Tropical Heat Wave
I still have lots of Saturday left, and have already acquired two new skills. I tried combining terracotta clay with embossing powders and that was cool, then I invented a new way to make oblong beads that don't look nearly as lame as usual! I stamped the clay pendant with one of my handcarved stamps (sunburst), then brushed verdigris embossing powder in the indentations and baked it off. And it would have stayed cool too, if I hadn't touched it and smeared it while it was still hot. But I sanded it again, reembossed it, and tried again. Still looks good, but not as good as it WOULD have been if I wasn't such a clutz.
While I was working, I had the toaster oven on for clay baking so did not turn on the AC (we have touchy fuses). I went out to start some washing, and saw that the temperature on the pole by the garage was already over 100 degrees and it was still morning! Good grief, it is FALL already! Or at least, it will be tomorrow. The spouse was out trying to start the lawn mower, but just came in looking like a drowned rat, and then left to go buy a spark plug for the mower.
I was going to try to clean up the living room today, but since it is so hot, I think I will sit around and sip iced drinks and maybe knit a little.
