Think warm thoughts

Right at this very moment all these beautiful porcelain pieces are firing away in a very hot kiln. How I envy them. If I could I would crawl into that kiln right now and enjoy the split second of warmth that I would experience just moments before my face would melt off my skull.

Ah yes, blessed heat, how I miss you. My furnace is still down though there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Mr. FurnaceFixerMan is working on the blower motor at this very moment and I have high hopes that the heat will begin to flow in a matter of a few hours. Until then it is major amounts of hot mint tea, many layers of clothing and the occasional nip of blackberry brandy. (As many of you know, I think that blackberry brandy is a cure-all for everything, from a cold to squeaky floor boards... in moderation, of course!)

Stay warm, everyone! I shall return once I have actual feeling in my fingertips!

PS - Don't forget to enter the Artbeads.com $25 gift certificate that I will be giving away on Wednesday!

So, blackberry brandy is your Windex? :o) Do the bunnies get blackberry brandy to make it through the cold, too?

I hope you get warm soon - you worrying about your bunnies reminds me of the time our AC died in September (in southeast Texas)...Our Malamute was lying on the floor staring at us with this look that screamed "What did I do to you? Why are you trying to kill me??"

We paid extra for super-quick service on that one - I couldn't have my snow dog melting on me!

I can't wait to see what all those beauties turn out to look like! I'm glad your furnace is getting fixed!

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog - I was on the fence about whether to keep fiddling with that necklace and your words helped tip me into a decision to leave it as is.

Also, I can already see things in that picture you posted that I definitely want. Can't wait to see what they look like finished and glazed.

Sending some California heat and sunshine your way!

Oh dear. I wish that I could send sunbeams of warmth your way. Glad to know that you survived the night and that the Fixit Man is on the case! Blackberry brandy, eh? I have a bad history with that stuff. Treated it a bit too much like kool-aid when I was a tad too young to be drinking it. But I am a fan of whatever keeps you warm!

Sorry to hear you are still in an ice box but I hope its sorted now.

I hope you're back in warmth, I was going to suggest that you just hover around your kiln! Better than a fireplace, right? This reminds me why I no longer live in Canada but instead in So Cal :)

Hope the furnace is fixed by now. BTW, how do you get the floorboards to drink blackberry brandy? Just wondering...

Kella said...

Hope you are warm now :)

I'm hoping you get warm soon! I'd love to be there when you open that kiln and take all those beauties out! I'd have to fondle every one--course that would take all day.....

Blackberry Brandy huh? Sounds delightful!
