This title and silly Ren and Stimpy cartoon theme-song sums up this past week for me. July is a month filled with many family birthdays (including my own) and fond memories of Washington Warthog indoor soccer games where the song was played each time a goal was scored. My husband was responsible for the team at the sports arena he managed in the suburbs of Washington, DC and our kids had roles on game days as a ball boy and cheerleader, so I heard the song a lot!
I fired a kiln filled with glazed pieces in the studio this week. Opening the kiln lid once the load of work has cooled is always filled with anticipation. I know how I’d like the pieces to look, but clay does not always cooperate, so there is always a chance for disappointment. Not so this time around!
Happy, happy, joy, joy, joy!
