|I like robins!|
1. I like growing things...I hate to waste food, and we had a tomato on the counter that went fast... I sliced it and planted it in the empty raised bed. Our growing season is short, so I doubt it will make tomatoes for us this year, but I will be able to watch it grow.
Like wise, like the beans in "into the woods" I saved and dried from last year's meager crop, I sprouted them in water and planted them in the other raised bed container. We put in the cut stump of our lettuce too after a few days of sitting in water and it's making lettuce for us!
... I like to see things growing in a garden.
I also like the idea that I was the one to touch them if it comes to a harvest and I hope it does.
2.I only painted a few pictures this week.
|KOI paints, pens, brushes, imagination!|
3.I am listening to a book on disc in studio as I sew on pink scraps... by Tasha Alexander and it's quite well written and read out loud.
4.I watched a video on blueprint, Jennifer Raymond, on fixing holes in hand knitted items, pretty good, give it a 6/10 for clarity of image, but she never told me how to repair a hole in older (sort of felted edges) socks. Still she was better than most tutorials I've seen.
5.I watched a class on blueprint by Laura Waisolowski on fusing, and I've done a lot of fusing but she does it slightly differently than I do, and I know her so it's fun to see her again. She fuses big pieces of fabric first, and uses the transfer paper with ink line of the piece to mark where to cut.
6.The grocery stores are empty here again, but dh found one loaf of buns and they were good, and scored one tube of ground turkey (no ground chicken or sausage or other poultry) no lasagna noodles. I wanted to make lasagna again, so I'm substituting bowtie pasta they had, using the turkey to make a bolognaise tomato sauce, layering best I can ricotta cheese, meat sauce, pasta, mozzarella to bake. I might put in some seasoned panko bread crumbs to sort of try to meld it.
7.I liked joining some questionnaire blog hops this week , one on Sunday and one on Tuesday. It's like going to a social and chatting with friends... see post here
8.Our pool reopened in the 'hood... grrrr..... and there's nothing to like about that...
( not on your life would I enter that petri dish!!)
but one day I saw a mom and two girls headed for it... wearing masks! Yea! So far in a 'hood of 1000 homes, I've only seen 5 other people wearing masks in the last 3 months, the rest blissfully spreading their germs as they walk/'run/bike by.
I can't express how good it was to see another human actually wearing one!
(BTW, some hairdressers who were working on lots of people's hair, came down with the virus and because they were wearing masks, the people they worked on didn't get it.... yet....)
9.I liked the zoom meeting with my fellow I Like posters last weekend. There were only 5 of us this time but we had a nice communion of spirit between us. This kind of sharing will get us through the general insecurity of our times
this is the best video I've seen on unusual embroidery stitches...I had to fight blogger to embed the youtube video, OMG I am so frustrated with the changes in blogger!
11.This video explains how animals communicate, and that they are very in tune with humans, we're not quite as tuned in...it starts and ends with a cat who visits the grave daily of his long time human friend.
I liked this quote in the video by an anthropologist:
Man is not the only animal that thinks... but he is the only one that thinks he's not an animal" Pascal Pique
12. I took this personality test and it was fascinating! It's kind of like the Myers-Briggs but the results were very informative, so much so that I thought... there must be other people out there like me!!!
I'm an enfp on Myers briggs and this too, but this went into detail about why I fell like I do.
On this test I'm the Campaigner
13.This was kind of funny...
|poor octopus getting surgery!|
Heyyyyy give that back Mama! No fair you get to play with my toy and I can't!
Mama: I'm just repairing it Milo
Milo: you're undoing all of my work!!!
Mama: wouldn't it be nicer to have a toy to play with, instead of eating it? It's not an animal
Milo: you're right about that, it doesn't have much flavor but it's filling!
Mama: that's because you're eating fluff
Milo: It's fun to tear up toys! That's how I play!
Mama: I don't get it, you're so happy to get a new toy and tear it right up!
Milo: think of it like this mama, you go shoppy-shop to buy fabric, then tear it up into little pieces!
Mama: but I make something with them!
Milo: details, details... just think of it this way, "it's a dog thing" "you wouldn't understand"
Mama: There! Finished! All sewn up and ready to play with
Milo: fine! The next sound you hear will be R IIIII P!
|S I G H.... let's just go outside now|
Editor's note: currently it is a Tri-o-pus instead of an octopus if you get my drift
