The little guy had some tummy troubles that required a visit to his kindly vet. He shakes so hard he could turn milk into cream. When it's all over and I'm writing the check he's back to normal, "cured"! I said to the lady at the desk. He's feeling good again and back in solid ground.
The weather has cooled a bit today with clouds moving in. I wish to express my sorrow for you who have been devastated by tornados, your family friends and loved ones. The pictures and news stories make me heart sick.
Things are freshening here, birds are frantic, singing, nesting, chasing each other around like kids at a junior high dance. Lizards are out and hungry, cleaning the garden of insects.
I found a nest and climbed up a ledge to see if anything was inside, nope nothing yet, then I realized I was standing in a thicket of budding, poison oak. I've never gotten it so I assume I'm immune, still, why play with fate :)
I checked the nest I found last fall , tangled in one of my big sages, it had blown sideways so I lifted it out to closer inspect the weaving that included one cellophane candy wrapper and numerous pieces of string.
*When I brush my dogs I scatter the hair in the garden as a contribution to the weavers.
Turning the page on my work I decided to make a few pendants using some ahh,mazining stones from my collection. This is a rhyolite from Greece, it reminds me of a painted desert wall. I suspended it from single row of handmade chain so it could flip while being worn and reveal..........
Wishing you all a beautiful day, a fresh start to another week.
