snowmelt contest winner!
It’s Kat! She’s on vacation now, but hopefully she’ll find an internets connection out in the wilderness to get the good news.
The snowpile disappeared totally sometime between June 22 and 24, and Kat’s was the closest guess at June 24. We must’ve had more snow last year, because the smaller pile melted away July 9 or so.
I’m still curious about the snails. I’ll send the picture to Phillip, and if he has anything interesting to say about them, I’ll let you know.
There were a lot of slugs and snails intermingling. Very weird. They’re cute over at Mochi Mochi though.
Hey, look, on last year’s contest winner post there was a creature feature too!
I’m about 20 stitches into the third row of the section (some 43 rows altogether?), which action was much interrupted at knit night last week by this,
Fifteen year old Brazilian rum. Yowza! Smooth, and lively. We ended up hooting at old Vogue Knitting magazines more than knitting.
I am not the only one in the household with an obsession. You’ve seen hints of this before, but it’s the reishi season.
It smells horrible while it’s drying, and it doesn’t taste a whole lot better. I don’t drink it.
The chaga is way better, but there isn’t so much of it around. If we ever get a lot like we have of the reishi, I’ll use it as a base for lotion. I saw cream made with this for sale for over $40 for a 2 ounce jar! Will let you know how that works out.
I’ve been cleaning and organizing. One of the girls left very stinky and very wet presents on the rug, so that got cleaned and pulled (and needs to be professionally cleaned). Last week one of their “houses” (which live in our bedroom) really STUNK, so the whole bedroom got scrubbed. Yesterday I got the guest bedroom cleaned out and ready for company.
But I might knit instead. Anybody have any ideas about coping with all the cords that need to be near the computer but not always attached to it?
The computer sits in the kitchen/dining area, and it is a clutter magnet.
It has been very wet and dreary here. I think the sun shone for maybe 5 days in June, maybe less. Got out with the stinky girls early this morning before it started raining.
Subtle, but I think beautiful. These are the anthers on a grass, I think it’s Bromus inermis.
