Greetings from Mars (New-ish Work)

I’m still here… hiding out indoors, far away from the blistering heat which has mercilessly attacked our backyard with temperatures over 100.  Add to that the lethal mosquito population (news flash:  the 10th death to West Nile just reported a few minutes ago – about 5 miles from my home.  Yippee.)   My workspace is starting to resemble this: (yes, this *is* the surface of Mars)  My attitude is not too far off the mark either…shriveling.

It’s hard to want to get out there and do the important work that we crafters do to fulfill the world’s insatiable need for handcasted concrete pots, so I’m taking it easy.  I have gotten out in the morning and evenings, despite the fact that mosquitoes really like to mess around at dawn and dusk, just to keep my hands in the game.  Here’s a few pics I’d like to share.  Can you sense that my heart is already in December with all this Christmas stuff?
