Yep, turned off kiln 30 minutes too soon last night because I got worried and did the math wrong. So, this morning, I unloaded it but things were not quite right. I loaded the car to leave, drove to the gas station and came home; it bugged me, so I put everything back in the kiln - some was OK but not quite. And messaged R that I would not be there until Weds. His shot is Thurs. Happy to note that kiln went off tonight at the correct time in the correct way so I can unload tomorrow and redo the sorting and reload into the car the few things I took out. And hit the road for Chateauguay where, the TD bank phoned to inform me, my new credit card awaits!

I felt so much better after I made this decision to redo the kiln. Went to hardware for extra fuses and chicken manure for the rhubarb as yesterday's visitor told me mine needed to be fed! It is fed! I do love it here; the hardware staff are consistently wonderful and the young woman who offered to carry it out for me - I just handed her the key in case it was locked, while I paid and met her coming in as I went out, retrieving key and finding manure where I asked her to place it!!

Oh, the electrician: dear Michael was chagrined that he had forgotten to put things back together. But all is well now and I hope he and lynn (rhubarb expert) can get the seat for the wheel sorted. I never mentioned that the long wait had cost me getting two more firings done. A gift horse! And it really is not important. I can do them next time. There is plenty at the shop with what will be done tomorrow.

Also, I might not have found the energy to glaze more as my post-shot energy level was VERY low, otherwise everything would be glazed and wrapped (to stay clean until firing time. Instead of just organized on trays and wrapped.

Charmion: keep in mind the possibility of an after effect of your second shot.
