Peanut Butter - also know as The Pat - was whisked off to the vet on Thursday. This is now part of my daily ritual:
|The one on the left is Lovey's...|
Since I had a little extra time off, my sister and I met at The Clark and took in a couple of new exhibits. Our favorite was up the hill behind the museum at a lovely, new space, where we sat mesmerized for quite a while, hooked on the swaying and rustling of Jennifer Steinkamp's birch trees in her Blind Eye exhibit. It was another hot, humid day, but we decided to opt out of the air-conditioned shuttle and we sauntered off down the trails through the woods to the main museum complex.

I spent the next day weeding and filing - obviously doing penance for some horrendous crime against the Universe, for which I am apparently getting my comeuppance. Because of this new bump in the road, I will be only posting sporadically, so I thought it only fair to warn you - and it is not due to health problems, my little petals, just in case you were worried. Oh, no. Just a non-ending yuk-fest the Universe is having at my expense.
I leave you with my new posh, fancy-schmancy fuel tank enclosure. It just warms the cockles of my heart to be able to reuse something of this magnitude. I had inherited a friend's old deck awning - in perfect shape, just faded. I've had this in storage for years and, after last year's winter beating, the cheap-ass tarps that come from China, cost a pretty penny and don't last worth a damn, had shredded off the enclosure. My "new" one has scalloped edges! How fun! Excuse the dirty 4x4 holding the long edge down - by the time I finished (with the help of my trusty 84 y/o neighbor), we were both beat and just grabbed the first thing that came to hand. I have to tell you that it just cheers me up when I go out the back and catch sight of it!
|I love the scalloped edges!|
Whimsy AND function!
I will pop up and post when I can - and will try and keep up with all your writings as well. xo
