A quick catch up before I leave for Arizona on Sunday. Going to visit old friends there; a reunion of the "big house" gang; old hippies who spent a crucial couple of years listening to Led Zeppelin and doing other hippie things together back when we were all testing adulthood. It's going to be terrific.
Here's a little side project I took on. Cut off a long linen jumper and turned the bottom into a big pocket. This is for wearing either over a dress like an apron or with leggings. It hits me about tunic length.
Mom had an apron with a similar pocket when I was a kid. I love pockets.
Got some licks in on a separate sewing project as well and I'll tell you more about that in the next post.
Spent a day with my play-date friends. When people get together to draw, paint, share food and listen to music, they get a lot done and leave with a feeling of love and gratitude. Organize your little groups, people. We each bring a sandwich and something to share. We solve all the problems in the world while we work. It's awesome.
John brought in some pea shoots for our stir fry. Mushrooms, carrots, onions, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, hot peppers, sake and tamari sauce. Over quinoa. Trust me.
Here's the farmer surveying his planting holes for the tomatoes he's going to put in the ground today. The pea trellis is in the background.
Here's the old old grapevine.
A mish mash of roses. Every one of them fragrant and happy.
Black beans on the left and kale on the right.
We started this rose from one stem that we purloined from the roadside.
My studio door.
The awesome Siberian.
Blatherings. I'm afraid I'm getting wordier all the time.
But I love writing. Love pouring it all out.
Time to pack a bag with very summery clothes. It's been 100 degrees fahrenheit in Phoenix. I won't be seeing so much green on that desert.
I hope your May is gentle. xo
