Sandpaper hands

Hey everyone! My hands are like sandpaper right about now and sore. I ran out of amber color tiles which is the swirl color so last night I had to go out in the studio and glaze tiles so I could fire the kiln this morning. Finished around midnight. Okay so maybe I won't be done until Sunday and grout on Monday. IF! the grout is in. I just want to be done so my hands can get back to normal.
Almost there!

I can only imagine what your hands are like after all of these days and hours of work like that! If I lived closer to you, I'd offer you a good massage (I am retired, but I am still able to work a little). Maybe you know a good massage therapist near you???

You are not only la buen artista, but you have admirable endurance and perseverance (if I could write that all in espanol, I would).

(Did you drink your winter drink while glazing those new tiles?)

Lanlin lotion from New Zealand! That's what takes the sandpaper off the hands. I bought some a few weeks ago to deal with winter-hand and it's amazing.

Now back to those tiles sister!

Put a great amount of heavy duty cream on your hands and put on gloves - light gardening gloves work well.

Leave on as long as possible. You'll be soft like silk. Works for feet too. I do the feet and wear socks to bed. Good thing I sleep alone. HA

You definitely deserve that drink, Mary. You have worked very hard.

That is absolutely beautiful! Yup, you're gonna need a drink! And a big comfy chair, with a footstool, a roaring fire and a masseuse!

When you're done, maybe you should go to the nail salon and get your hands parafan wax dipped. That will make them feel better!

PS The other night I meant to order a stinger at this bar I was at but forgot and ordered my same old dirty martini(vodka).
