It has been a few day since I did a page in the Journal...it's just been bla, bla, bla...Well, I have been trying to catch up on laundry and sleep. Almost all the loads are done, but some need to be put away.
I took a load of tiles out this morning...some ok some maybe questionable. I had another load ready to go in. I have a question in my mind about firing in a different way. I fire for 4 hours up to a temp of almost 1900 degrees F. I am going to look into firing to a lower temp. People that do china painting, I think, fire to a lower temp. SO, can I cut down on my time and temperature? All I really need is for the paint to stay on and be permanent. Should I mess up a sure way of firing? Well, what can it hurt?
The FG is doing well. I cut some leaves and part of the vines off the squash plant. I wanted to take it out of the pot, but oh, there were some little squash just coming out, so I didn't have the heart to pull the entire plant. Maybe I stressed it enough yesterday that it will wilt and die so then I can clean it out. Oh, don't worry, I have new plants coming on.
Green beans are blooming really well, but it seems they are slow making little beans..am I rushing things? Probably.
We know we have one fawn...have not seen any more. There should be more---maybe they will come in soon.
We are having stuffed tacos tonight...nothing unusal...I just had to have a name for what I made. Ground meat, browned, some pinto beans, corn, and pimentos. Then it has all the spices of a taco. Now, do I fill flour tortillas or corn. I'll see what I have.
