Here's the comparison with the sizes of the grinding stones and the porcelain dishes. The grinding stone I bought on sale is the 7-inch size--huge! Now I have two round stones so that both Leah and I will have grinding stones when she is here. I'll probably let Leah use the large one when she's here, since I can use it any time, right? I am just happy to have round stones! Feels so different when you are grinding.
I had a hard time using the stack of shallow porcelain dishes that I already had around here for watercolors. Always afraid of spilling over the edges and there's very little room to mix. I have never really liked them--not for western watercolors, either. I finally got the deeper dishes--tada! If I like them (which I think I will) I might get another set eventually, too, since I have quite a few colors and you can leave them in the dishes and re-wet them. I'll have to find another use for the shallow, smaller ones, I guess.
Yesterday my computer was acting all weird. I couldn't get any pages at all to open on my desk computer, but everything was working on my laptop and my Internet connection was fine. ?? This went on for some time. I left it alone and hoped that it would heal itself. (My electronic and mechanical things can do that sometimes--hehe!) It did. Last night it was working again. ???? :)
