I finally made enough to load two kilns. I am firing tomorrow. This summer, so far, is cooler than usual, which is very helpful. Last year I was laughing stocks in the building as suffering from the heat in my studio.
I don’t have good memory for US national holidays, and wound up working through them. National holiday here is very confusing, as banks and schools are closed while other business are mostly open. In Japan, national holiday means everybody other than stores take day off. I will be working through this weekend.
