Today has been so HOT, its the first taste of our summer and I think the grass outside just died in a few hours it was so HOT. Of course, you learn to live with it but the first start of Summer always takes some adjustment. I have made my verandah and pool an oasis of cool for summer. I have installed overhead fans on the verandah and a fish pond with a fountain. So it is sort of shady. Outside this area we have a pool and I am still trying to establish the garden here. But it is slowly filling up. The photo I have included with the window is my workshop. So even though it may be hot inside its a nice view out the window, and if I get to hot I can jump in the pool then go back to work !!! Which I have done on occassion.

This weather everything I am working on has to be protected from drying to quickly, one extreme to the other, if your not careful everything ends up cracked.  Good for glazing though !!!  Today I have been waiting to progress, waiting to put things in the kiln, maybe by Friday.   Keep you posted……
