To the tune of Judas Priest's "Breakin' The Law" 

I really hate when I finish a pot, and I think it's pretty good, and the next day I kind of hate it. I tell myself, I will use this for glaze testing. But the only thing to do is just keep practicing and making more stuff. I know I can do better, but the self-criticism is demotivating. So many pots are "ok but the rim is not good", or "curved part is wonky" or I just look at it and do not like, or otherwise not up to my own vision.

I live in a small enough local area that I was out walking my dog, and the UPS truck drove up and stopped and gave me my package. I was about a quarter of a mile down the road from my house, and the usual loop walk we do is just under a mile, but it was a small package.

I also can't figure out if I want something savory or sweet. Or both.

Have you ever not watched the last episode of a tv series deliberately for a long time, keeping it in the queue but never finishing it? Why do I do this?

I'm in this weird headspace where I don't know if I want to watch/read something old and familiar, or something new and different. Kind of both. Even though I am in the middle of a bunch of books, I feel like I'm in between books.

Still sick with a cold. Why did I think doing some laundry would be a good idea? It's sitting in the dryer and I have to go back upstairs and at least fold a few things.
I did take a long hot shower, which was nice. Thanks to past me for getting a shower stool. I might take another one later and steam my sinuses some more.
