A Cat Doing What A Cat Does June 21, 2018

IMG_5759  Sad demise – I’ve buried the bird and feel awful. I’m glad Katerina doesn’t catch birds very often.  I buried a field mouse yesterday – I felt badly about that also – but not quite so bad.

Does the cat’s recent behavior have anything to do with the Solstice?  I wonder.


The Solstice Parade 2009 June 23, 2011

I have been rereading my blog entry for the Solstice Parade and the Fremont Fair 2009.  I haven’t figured out how to transfer the text and images to 2011.  I made that entry on a 2nd blog which I had going for a while but then I decided that trying to keep 2 blogs going simultaneously was just too much.


Getting Ready for the Solstice June 18, 2011

The days are getting longer and brighter.  The summer solstice is going to be here before we know it.  My friend Freyalyn has finished her garment making for Stonehenge – see her blog for pictures etc.  The big Fremont Fair and the Solstice Parade  are scheduled for this weekend.  Lots of blue body paint is being collected in preparation.  I have a few photos from the 2009 event.   I just have to figure out how to access them.  They were on the old computer in Dublin and they all got saved and hopefully transferred to this computer.   The Solstice Fair was a big event so I hope I can find those big pictures.  Meanwhile here is a photo from 2009, kindly supplied by Susan, DIL.        Two grandaughters wearing their new dresses and their new guitars  – treats  from the Fair, 2009  

In case you might think I have not been doing any knitting lately – (1) here is a postcard I received today.


(2)  Here is what I have been doing instead: crochet blankets and a crochet hat – ends not sewn in yet – it’s like the editing for my autobiography – have to get around to it, and have to get around to sewing in the ends to my knit and crochet items
