Unrelated pic.

Note to self: planted today --> a variety of lettuces, arugula, radishes (including daikon...given to me by a generous gardener), Swiss chard, beets, yada yada yada.  Very non-scientific record-keeping this autumn...been working on several mosaic projects and I am too tired to gather all the labels and type it here.

Light & trash



This here wooden dresser holding a large flat file was found in the trash.  It sits in my room/studio...every day the late sun-light pours on it in a magical way...doing its little dance...and I sit and stare.

The simple things, eh?

Couldn't do it--


Found this little handsome guy wandering staggering through the garden a few mornings ago.  He looked like he was dying.  I, on the other hand, felt very much alive and with a nice collection of garden bugs (only collected after their natural deaths) and none as colorful as this fella...so I pushed him into a glass jar thinking he was a done deal.

Next day he was still trying to escape.

It broke my heart.  Without figuring out if he was a garden's friend or foe I rushed outside and set him free.

I am normally not this nice.

Why I haven't been around as often...


I have been doing a bit of this tiling/mosaic thing by our front door.  I want to finish the entire walkway into the house by year's end.  Each 'wave' takes me about four hours to put in place and another three to four hours for grouting and cleaning.  Back-breaking.

Success: when someone who is not into pecans or cinnamon can't stop eating them.
