a book by Alexandra Fuller – Quiet Until the Thaw. This is about the Lakota Indians of the Dakotas. Whether writing about Africa or the western part of the United States, she is one of my favorite authors.
A Day In Mystic Connecticut June 27, 2017
We had a 17th birthday celebratory lunch at 36Red on the river in Mystic Connecticut. Almost within sight of the Draken Harald – the Viking Ship which sailed the Atlantic in 2016 and wintered in Mystic. A beauty of a day with good weather, delicious food, successful shopping, superb company, etc etc. Superlatives galore for our oldest grandson’s 17th birthday.
And I even did some knitting too!
Two Years Ago January 5, 2017
I randomly found this photo this morning when I sent birthday wishes to one of my nephews. I suspect the photo is from 2 years ago. The clues are the cat (Katerina), the cushions and blankets on the sofa, what I am wearing and the scarf I am knitting. Katerina is no longer as affectionate. She tends to find a place at the other end of the sofa. She is definitely not a lap cat. I happen to be knitting scarves again 2 years on. I still have the purple polo neck and wear it often at this time of year BRR
Here are the latest scarves. I like purple.
