Great American Baseball Tour — Day 27

Friday, May 11, 2018

Another day of rest for Jim. I think the effects of having shingles is still with him as clipart alligator relaxinghe is so very tired and still hurting. What a terrible ordeal. I certainly hope that the shot I got keeps me from ever having them. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.

Today I finished the story I was reading, caught up on Facebook posts, and did some more painting. I have nine African-American figures done now (although some still need shading). Still have another angel, a boy and a girl reading, and the two Santas with kids on their laps. Looking forward to doing a workshop.

outback-steakhouseJim got up in time to go out for dinner and we decided to go somewhere close by. Besides fast food and lots of Asian restaurants, we found a steakhouse.  So we splurged at Outback and even had cheesecake with raspberry sauce for dessert. Yum!

Tonight we are just going to relax and catch up on some of our TV shows, like the last two episodes of NCIS with Abby. Hate to see her go, she was one of my favorite characters.

Ceramic Ideas for Down Under

When I think of the “outback” in Australia I think of koalas, kangaroos, and crocodiles. Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures to share with you as these molds haven’t been poured.

  • SMALL KOALA MAGNET $1.00 in bisque
  • KOALA FLAT ORNAMENTS  (add-ons) about 4″, bisque $3.00, $10.00/set of 5
  • KOALA PICTURE on a cup, a cute deco idea (not my picture)
  • KANGAROO & ALLIGATOR can be copied from a web search and added to any plain piece, such as cups, plates, teapots, flower pots, etc. Then add your own embellishments to make a scene. We have done this with jungle animals and fishing scenes for themed baby showers.

If you are interested in the Koala bisque pieces, send me a message and
I will pour them and send a picture as soon as we return from vacation.
