If you haven’t checked in on the owlets lately, better do so. They’re growing up fast and won’t be staying in the nest box much longer, having changed from small fluff balls to small alien-and-yet-owlish beings.
Via Karoda and Cathy Stewart:
OK, so the book that was actually closest was my Peterson’s bird guide, and page 123 has no sentences on it at all but ahs a group of plovers and turnstone in flight. Fifth bird on the page is the Killdeer.
I walked over the the bookcase in the living room and stuck my hand into the middle of it and pulled out a book:
This, too, there was, that, young as the sons were — Nikulaus was now seventeen winters old, Bjorgulf would be sixteen, and Gaute fifteen at harvest-time — these three already had a way with women that made their mother uneasy.
Name that book? Kristin Lavransdatter III: The Cross by Sigrid Undset. Gotta love that uber-punctuated opening.
Hey look, she’s talking about quilting!
Today Mom and I went to a local guild show. Some of the quilts were quite nice. It’s a very long-standing guild with quite a few members. OK, a lot of members. One of the members, Linda Miller, was featured; she makes really wonderful quilts inspired by quilts from the late 19th century. They are truly wonderful. I thought how nice it must have been for her to see all her big quilts all hanging together. They were quite impressive as a group and she should be very proud of them!
After Mom and I got done looking at quilts, we wandered over to the vendors and don’t you know, she let me spend a chunk of money. I met the guys from Woodstock Quilt Supply and well, I knew I liked them a lot when I saw all the luscious Robert Kaufman fabrics. Mom had told me about the great shelving units they have in their store which hold both bolts and fat quarters and sure enough, their travelling shop has the same sort of set up. Someday I’ll have to wander down and meet the rest of their inventory.
Then it was off to do some grocery shopping and to make some bread. The builds were doing nicely when I got home so after Saturday Pizza I got busy weighing out flour and whomping up some good stuff. Now it’s all in there doing it’s bulk fermentation thing.
And me? Well I’m off now to do some work on the new quilt. The quilting is coming along slow but sure. I think it’s looking good. It’s not that it’s hard or demanding really, just that I’m still not quite in the mental groove again. It’s getting better though. I can work for longer periods of time which is a lot less frustrating. So back to the thread stuff for awhile until the yeastie stuff needs me again.
