When Al puts together a post he usually have a series of wonderful pictures he took that day. Butterflies, farm fields, Pheebs the dog. All "eye candy" for sure.
When Judy posts she almost always shares the pictures she has taken of the birds and beasts she sees on her daily trek around the wildlife preserve she is at. They are always delightful. As are the pictures included in so many of the blogs I enjoy.
I take pictures too, and here are a few from this week:
A repair guy inside our septic tank fixing the baffle and some deteriorated cement on the walls. He looked like an alien with his tight head covering and hazmat suit.
One side of the garage. Clean with a freshly painted wall!
The other side. It really is an improvement over a few weeks ago.
Mr. Moose is ready to go! I bought him many years ago on a ski trip in Canada. I should have taken a before picture. He had long red skis, ski poles, a ski cap, and a wintery red and white neck scarf. Now he has sunglasses, a sun-visor, a backpack, trekking poles, and hiking boots. He will be our dash mascot.
After our very busy days, I relax by doing original plastic canvas needlepoint. Last month, when I was working on my grocery tote, I struggled with roses. I think I have them figured out.
I like to make functional things. This is the inside of one of four closet doors in the Alfa. When it is closed, there is about three inches of space between the door and the plastic drawers. Hanging something with pockets on the inside of a closet door, is not an original idea, but this is my version.
There is enough room on the bottom of the door for another set. I have decided to make two larger pockets there.
This week I took a large box of coral, we had in the attic for many years, to the auction house. I had tried to sell it on Craigslist with no success. Seeing it brought back memories of the large marine fish tank we had at one time. It inspired me to start exploring tropical fish designs, and making the next two pockets with a reef motif.
These are two 4" samples. If I do two more I can make a small kleenex box cover with them. Functional of course. I think I'll make some seahorses and an octopus. This is my therapy.
My life may be busy, but I still find time for some color.
