yesterday i went with my sister to 'taste of edmonton'
it was a pretty good day
we tasted a bunch of food
i had "Ricotta Cheese Fritters with Spicy Tomato Jam" which were quite yummy
"Pad Thai Noodle" which was ..eh.
"Southern Fried Green Tomatoes with Creole Aioli Drizzle" which was one of the things i was wanting to try, they were ok
"Ater Kik Aletcha Wot" ..which is an ethiopian dish made with lentils? i think, it was pretty tasty, it came with this weird bread sort of roll thing that was kinda yuck. it was really sour, like sourdough is sour, but way more sour & i dont like sourdough bread.
"Cauliflower 65" which was my favourite thing last year, i got 2 of these! so yum. this past year i have attempted to recreate this at home with no luck. it is sweet & a bit spicy & yum!
"Chilled Blueberry Soup with Goat Cheese Ice Cream and Micro Basil" which was yummy, my sister really liked it. the 'blueberry soup' was tasty, very blueberry-y, not like a sickly sweet blueberry sauce, so, thats good!
and finally "White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake on a Stick" which i brought home & have not eaten yet, it is sitting in the fridge!
i also went to an art store yesterday
this one place has a big sale going on & i got a bunch of inks for half off
so yay to that too.
i went with my dad to watch fireworks tonight
& took his camera & got some pictures
we went on sunday too & i brought the camera but when i got there someone had changed the settings & i did not know how to get it back onto the bulb setting? so i could not take any pictures
so i figured it all out & was ready today!
but the fireworks kinda sucked anyway.
they were all really low & it was almost all goldish ones
not even glittery gold ones
the gold ones that just kinda look like burnt out.. i dont know if you know what i mean
& then when i got home and looked at them the photos look kinda ..out of focus?
maybe i need to ask my brother-in-law or sister-in-law what to do about that
but we should go again to watch fireworks at least a couple of times
& hopefully there will be some colourful ones!
& hopefully i will get some good ones!

today my brother called
my sister-in-law had taken their dog Taiga to the vet
& i guess things were just not good, he is in final stages of liver failure, has liquid in his belly, so, they were going to put him to sleep
& he wanted to know if we wanted to come over to say goodbye
my dad had just recently left to go to the farm, but my sister came over & drove me & mom over there
we played around with Taiga for a little bit & took some pictures
my sister brought him some peanut butter mixed up with treats that he really really liked!
& then they all took him to the vet
on the way home we decided to stop at starbucks & pick up a drink
it was a little strip mall sort of thing & there was a pet food store
we stopped in there because my sister wanted to see what they had on sale for her dog
we were looking at some ball thing and i heard a little 'meow'
i looked behind me and there was a little kitty! laying down in a cage
i stuck my finger in to pet her head & she started licking me
she was very pretty
my mom tried to pet her but she didnt want to lick her
i kept petting her & she was licking me & then she rolled over for me to scratch her belly
so, i tried to do that
it was kinda hard to through the cage
she had lots of spots like timmy, but she did not have a white neck or paws like he did
i hope she finds a good home with good people!
back at home i did some more painting
i have been doing ink paintings & mailart
even though i have not been to the mailbox to mail anything yet
i was looking online at local art stores today
there are 2 that i had planned on going to that have shut down!
but there is one & they have a big sale on this week!
everything in their store is 30-60% off!
& their inks that i want to buy are 50% off!!!
so, hopefully i can get there this week sometime, its kinda far away so i would need a ride.
my uncle is over & i kinda wish he wasnt.
he is just kinda loud & sometimes very annoying.
things like, i heard earlier my mom telling him about my brothers dog
& he was saying stuff like ..whats the big deal, just get another dog
my mom attempted to explain to him that it doesnt work that way, but then he just gets louder & more opinionated
that's the annoying part.
i suppose i could just go to my house,
but i kinda want to go watch tv.

i had sculpture class today
i worked on my mask
i spent the entire class working on the background
last week i spent the whole class working on the face
my intention this week was to do a sort of bark like effect for the background
then i was kinda thinking of making a branch with some leaves
so, i spent almost the whole class doing the background, so tedious!!!
and then i kinda put a mock up of clay where i was thinking to put the branch
& i was going to lift it up a bit to get a better look at it
i was SUPPOSED to lift up the piece of wood that the whole thing was on
but for some stupid reason i lifted just the clay
& it CRACKED & BROKE!!!!!
2 classes worth of work! & these are 3 hour classes i am speaking of.
it was not too bad though, the face did not break
the teacher helped me put a patch on the back
and then i patched up the front & had to redo the bark effect over top of that
i was rushing to finish it before the end of class
so, no branch. oh well.
it turned out pretty nice without it anyway
& i am finished!
hopefully the patch sticks!
next week i plan on making a fish! & hopefully some mushrooms
i also want to make a plant pot of some sort, i have to think of a design
i only have 2 more classes
i never intended to make anything so serious as this mask ended up being in the first place
but it was fun too!
i have wanted to take a sculpture class for a long time
& when i was looking for the code to sign up for this class i saw that in the fall there is going to be an animal sculpture class
so i hope to sign up for that one too!

i went to the museum today with my aunt & my mom!
we wanted to check out a fiber arts exhibit they had
it was kinda neat, but quite small
they also had a feature exhibit about leather jackets!
at the beginning of that they had a motorcycle for people to get on and a bunch of leather jackets for people to try on and pose for pictures
i got my mom to do it & that is rather hilarious!
the pic turned out pretty good too!
then we went upstairs to check out the stuff that is always there
there is a bug exhibit & a bunch of rocks, some birds of alberta & a small dinosaur thing
there is an aboriginal culture exhibit
then we went back downstairs to check out the nature exhibit & it was totally changed from the way it used to be! it used to just be rows of diorama type displays with stuffed taxidermy animals
it still had some of those, but it was arranged differently & it also featured some live fish in tanks & some different things & not quite as many of those displays
it was cool that it was different though, because that museum has had the same things for ages!
i do not think i have been there since high school though
i used to do a bunch of volunteer work there when i was in high school
it seems to me that they used to have more special exhibits back then, those are what i volunteered for
they are building a new museum closer to downtown now
i think it is supposed to be finished in 2016
so, hopefully that will increase interest & maybe they will start having more & more interesting exhibits again
after the museum we went out for supper to this italian place
(i just went to an italian place for supper yesterday and still have leftovers from that but oh well)
& when the waitress was bringing my food she spilled the whole thing almost right on me!
on the table right next to me
a tiny bit splashed on my shirt & some got on my hand & burnt my finger a bit
not badly but it stung, i put some ice on it & by the time we left it was perfectly fine
she felt so bad but it was just an accident
she gave us free deserts, so that was good!
this evening i did some more ink painting & a whole bunch of organizing type cleaning in my house
i am actually going to be mailing out a whole bunch of mailart!
i am happy with myself
a bunch of them are just going to be light art type photos, so, maybe thats kinda cheating, but i will fill up the back with lots of old artistamps that i have found in my cleaning, so, thats good
i have received lots of plain envelopes in the past with just a bunch of stamps on them
i printed off a list of something like 130 addresses & i am going to attempt to send out mail to ..at least half of them this summer!
that is my goal.
check out my sweet potato:
i still need to plant the one in the blue cup
i dont know what i am going to do with all the shoots that are on the potato
i need to do some research on indoor container gardening!
|Monday, July 14th, 2014|
i went to the art walk today
its the first time i have ever gone
pretty much its just a whole bunch of artists displaying & selling their art along the street
it was interesting seeing all the stuff
but it was hot out!
we also checked out this sand sculpture thingy which ended up being kinda ..not as fantastic as expected
it ended up being only 3 sculptures, a man, a girl & a boat & they were very good
but i was expecting there to be a whole lot more
there was a bit of an incident
i did not notice at first because it was happening in the opposite direction of which we were going
but my sister noticed that these 2 guys were starting to fight
i was looking at the art & then noticed my sister was not with me & then noticed she was looking back the way we came
then she started yelling, so i went to see what was going on & saw the guys pushing each other
she was yelling at them to cut it out & walk away & what not & i joined it, there is no need for fighting on the streets
they were pushing at each other & then started swinging at each other
& then i am not sure if it was before or after they had knocked each other to the ground but they were at each other & my sister got right in there pulling them apart
so i followed suit & it was me & her & 1 other guy trying to break up these 2 men fighting
finally we did get them apart and things settled down & we went on our way
my sister was saying she was surprised more people did not get involved, there were lots of people just standing around watching. she was wondering if anyone had called the cops, i dont think anyone had. there was actually a real lack of police presence there today, i did not see one the whole time we were there, which is kind of odd.
afterwards i was kinda thinking ..damn. my sister is brave, i mean, i am all for getting involved, but honestly, i normally would not get in between 2 men fighting and she is quite a bit smaller than me.
& my poor sister has an anxiety disorder and gets panic attacks over simple little events that should not make her panic & then just jumps into something like this & says its her good deed of the day
i know the 2 things are not related, i am very familiar with mental illness & how fickle it can be, but maybe next time i need to remind her of times she does things like this and how strong she really is.

i went for a walk with my dad & sister & pax (my sister's dog) to borden park today
it is a very old park & they have been fixing it up & have installed a whole bunch of sculptures!
one is especially eye catching & you can see it peeking through the trees as you drive by
& i have been wanting to go check it out!
after some online research i have discovered that this thing! is titled "Willow" and was made by artist Marc Fornes
there are also 11 temporary sculptures that will be circled out over the next 2 years
this is so wonderful!
there is also a really cool building that is to house the public washrooms & a seating area & i am not sure what else
it was not yet open when i was there, it is all mirrors on the outside but apparently when you look out from the inside it is perfectly clear
i have fond memories of this park
when i was little we used to have big family bbq picnics here
it was good times!
|Friday, July 11th, 2014|
i had my first sculpture class today!
it went well
our first project was a mask
i pretty much finished mine, except i have to do some embellishments, a background & whatnot
since its 'garden sculpture' i am thinking of having the face against a wood type thing & leaves around the face
i am not sure if i want to do wood grain or more bark???
next week i might make some fish! & i hope to make some mushrooms
i need to do some research of different types of mushrooms and sketch them out
other than that, i am not sure what we are going to do?
on the way back home some guy on the lrt had a pizza
& it smelled soooooooooo good
so i ordered one when i got home & now i need to go eat it!
yesterday i took a gazillion photos of this light stick thingy thing i bought from some online discount store thingy from china with free shipping for a buck or something
its a plastic stick that flashes coloured lights
i took a bunch of pictures with my old camera that i hate
they turned out pretty good
i am just uploading them now & then its pizza time!

this is my pink flamingo in a pot of blue lobelia
i got it last year but was afraid to put it up in my yard because i think someone would steal it
so instead i put it in this pot on my parents deck
i went out and about today
i had a drB2 appointment
& then i met my cousin downtown at the street performers festival
but we did not really watch any street performers
it was too hot!!!!
we stopped at this ticket place because i wanted to pick up some tickets for taste of edmonton
they are cheaper if you buy them early
i had never been in there, it was kind of neat
they had all sorts of arts & crafts by local folks, the lady said it was all in consignment
+ it was air conditioned!
& i got a floaty pen! its an edmonton transit one with a bus going across the city sky line? is that the right term i am looking for?
later we went to second cup for a drink & i got an iced tea
you can get it sweetened or unsweetened there, i got it sweetened of course
& i took my first sip of it (through a straw) and it was SO SWEET!!! yikes.
but then i was stirring the ice around and drinking the rest & it was not very sweet at all
so, i guess in that first sip i must have sucked up all the syrup to sweeten it!
oh, & i signed up for that garden sculpture class
it starts tomorrow!
it is only for 4 weeks though
i am not exactly sure what we are going to do, but hopefully it will be fun stuff!

my gut kinda feels ..i dont know? bloated? uncomfortable? weird.
kinda icky anyway
i went to pick up the ceramics we painted yesterday
they turned out pretty great!
scarlett & family were in the area, so they stopped by to pick up hers (an owl shaped bank)
lou has yet to pick up hers, a container in the shape of the head of the HULK! it is fantastic!
mine is a nice sized bowl to eat from & moms is a square dish
i also stopped by dollarama to pick up some more baskets for my cupboard
& they had hula hoops! so i bought a large one & a small one
so yesterday i made a woven hot pad type thing with the small one
& i plan on making another rug with the large one but i need to get some tshirt material from my cousin
i did some cleaning the other day too!
yay for me.
the street performers festival is on right now
& my cousin had emailed me about it last week
i emailed her back but i have not heard back from her
i suppose i should call, but i dont know, i am lazy or something
i just have been feeling blah lately and have no initiative
i have a drB2 appointment on wed. and have been thinking about cancelling(rescheduling) it
& then today i remembered that that garden sculpture class i was thinking of taking this month starts on thursday
so if i want to take it i better register for it pretty soon
i just dont know what to do
i suppose i need to push myself
well, not suppose, i need to
because i have been on this borderline of being able to do things and get things done or do absolutely nothing and kinda just lose time
& i need to push myself to the get things done side so i dont slip back into the nothingness zone again.

so i went & FINALLY transplanted some of my lemon plants!
there was not enough potting soil to do all of them
so i just did 4 of them (i still have 6 more)
they had such healthy looking roots! & they look so nice in their new pots!
(well, one is in a tin can that i painted)
i also need my dad to drill holes in 2 pots that i bought for the other ones
i hope they do good in their new homes!
they were previously in one of those 6 pack things you buy bedding plants in
they have been in there for over a year
so now they get to stretch their roots out
i am quite proud of them in a strange maternal way
after that i did a whole bunch of cleaning
it was so hot in my house though
i opened a few windows the other day
but i still think there is not much air flow
i think i am going to put a fan on when i go to sleep
i couldnt open the window in my bedroom the other day because something was wedged against it from the outside
i was supposed to go check it out but i forgot & now its too dark
after all the cleaning i watered the garden & my flowers
in the dark (darkish) like i usually do
i would do a lot of garden work in the dark if i could
there are mosquitoes to fight off though sometimes
& there is the thing about not seeing too well
now i plan to eat! fruit!
& watch tv!
my dad took me to get my blood done today & we finally remembered to try and phone and make an appointment first, cause sometimes you have to wait SO LONG!
so i did that
but when i got there there was hardly anyone there
i wouldnt have had to wait even if i didnt have an appointment
we went to the grocery place & got fruit!
we got a whole case of cherries & a whole case of strawberries!!!
i also got some nectarines & peaches & plums & a mango & broccoli!
oh, and pitas!
but while we were there my arm was bleeding from the bloodwork, eek!
the cotton ball he had taped to me was completely red
sometimes i bleed a lot after, sometimes i dont, you never can tell
earlier today i was mentally cleaning my house
i was thinking ..this stuff could go this place, this other stuff here, etc...
& i remember i had figured out where a whole bunch of things could go
i had organized a whole lot of things in my head
but then now i forget it all
so that sucks.
maybe if i go to my house i will remember some of it?
i know i was thinking that i want to buy some more of these baskets i got from dollarama
they fit super nice in my cupboard
i had only bought 3 because i was not quite sure how they would do
but i would like to buy 3 more
it was soooo hot today, ick.
i did not like it
when i woke up i felt kinda sickly, dehydrated a bit perhaps?
after i drank a bit & ate some watermelon for breakfast i felt a bit better
my dad took me & my sister to a little art show of this lady's he knows
it was just in this little studio that was in her garage, it was a nice little studio
he knows these people because he has done work for them before
her artwork was mostly drawings of ..girls i guess?
it was interesting
when me & my sister first went in there was this lady standing there
she was very tall and thin and had short black hair and big black sunglasses on
she was standing very still in kinda a strange position & i thought at first that she might be a mannequin
later my sister was telling me that she thought the very same thing! ha!
when i got home i could hear someone playing bag pipes outside
there used to be a bagpipe group/class that practiced down by the school that is a few blocks away
i havent really noticed them for quite some time though
i like bagpipes!
i am hoping it is not quite so hot out tomorrow
maybe i can plant my sweet potato
one of the shoots has gotten VERY large
today i pulled it off the potato & put it in some water
it already has roots on it
but while i was putting it in water i broke off a stem from the larger stem
hopefully the smaller one will sprout its own roots & i can plant that one too!

~happy canada day~
(or well, hope it was!)
i went to watch the fireworks with my dad
we usually just go down ..that way->
& not down by the leg. near where they shoot them off
so, we are not up close & they are not super big
but they were pretty good this year!
there were a lot of red ones
but not just regular old redish ones, super vivid red ones!
& there were some other nice ones that were not your 'typical' fireworks
then at the very end, there were these big round ones
but they were red-white-red all in one firework!
i dont think i have ever seen any like that before
so i was quite impressed!
|Saturday, June 28th, 2014|
i am in kinda a blah sort of state.
i realized that i have not really been doing much of anything lately
i have not been doing regular yard work or cleaning or walking on the treadmill
plus i have been falling asleep on the couch at night watching tv a lot lately too
so whats up?
but i went over to my house to do some cleaning & decided to work on the kitchen!
its one area that i have not really bothered with much because i still do all my cooking here at my folks place
so i straightened up the shelves & washed them
i was going to do a load of dishes & things that were sitting on the counter before i put them away but i had no dish soap (i have some here though)
on thursday my niece scarlett, my sister & my mom & me went to this place where you pick out some ceramic thingy & then paint it & then they fire it for you
i had bought a groupon for this place when i had an (additional) 20% off coupon
on the site/in the info it had said that a lot of the items cost around $15 and that was what i was kinda planning on, things being in the $15-$20 range
but nope. pretty much everything was over $30! i think there was a little shot glass that was $15
yikes. so it ended up costing LOTS more than i thought it would
and also, we got there at about 6:30 and they closed at 7:30, so we did not have time to finish painting our stuff!
so we ended up going back again friday afternoon
it ended up being good times!
scarlett painted an owl bank, my mom did this square dish, my sister painted this ridiculous HULK head dish & i painted a bowl, i made a little lion on it
we have to go pick them up next friday, so i am looking forward to seeing how they turn out!
|Tuesday, June 24th, 2014|
i feel so icky today
i had to get up 'early' because i had a drB appointment
& when i got up i just felt sick, kinda like i was going to pass out
i sometimes feel like this when i dont sleep well i guess
but i had some breakfast & then i felt a little bit better
it is rather warm outside & i had to take the bus
but luckily that was pretty painless
i picked up some food on the way home but have not eaten it yet
i think i may have had a bit of a fever or something
because my temp. is all messed up
not feeling hot in the hot weather, etc..
i just feel a bit queezy now, which kinda sucks
the bird in the other room was whistling away & talking a bit
so i said hello to him & now he is all quiet
he is very shy, such a strange bird.
|Friday, June 20th, 2014|
the weather has been kinda icky
rainy & stuff
i have been waiting for a nice day to transplant my lemon plants because i want to do it outside
but i dont want it to be cold on their little root systems
i went and checked on my strawberry patch today & it seems to be doing pretty good!
most of the strawberry plants i had transplanted into there are establishing themselves quite well!
also my iris's are blooming!
they are one of my favourite flowers
however, last year i planted a new one along with the clump of old ones i had
the new one is purple & white, the old ones are just purple
& i dont really see the purple & white one, or where it can be? it might have died?
my mom & dad took me to do some shopping stuff today
we got some fruit! yay! strawberries & nectarines & a watermelon
i am so happy about that
we have been short on fruit & veggies, & i just cant stand not having that sort of stuff around
we went to micheals & they had this sort of sale
70% off the reduced price of clearance items & i got this
printmaking kit for $15!!!
i am very pleased with that!
i dont have a baren & lost my lino cutter some time ago & its just an incredibly good deal
i also got some strange blue yarn for my next rug
we also went to dollarama and got a few things
but unfortunately they did not have any hula hoops
hopefully the one by my place might still have some & i can get a larger one?
if not then thats ok too i guess
right now i feel sleepy and hungry
this past week i have been falling asleep while watching tv at night a lot
and then waking up very very late hunched over on the couch
some days i get myself up and stagger over home to go to sleep
but a few days i have just said screw it and went to sleep on the couch for the night
its strange though because its not like i have gotten sleepy and fallen asleep
i wake up not knowing that i fell asleep in the first place
i would think i might be getting anemic again, but i take iron pills every day?
|Sunday, June 15th, 2014|
today i went with my dad a few places, just for the ride, nothing exciting
the highlight was going by a harveys & there was a sign that someone had altered, taken out the 'g' from 'angus' so it said: 100% anus burgers
on the way home we stopped and picked up chinese food, i bought it for my dad for fathers day
things are seeming strange to me today
there is an email from micheals and the sale right now is 'the more you spend the more you save'
the coupon is for: $5 off $25 or $10 off $50 or $15 off $75 or $20 off $100 or $25 off $125
do they think that i do not know how to do math?
each one of those deals is exactly the same, 20% off, how is spending more saving more?
i suppose it is a bit right, like if i spent $35 i would still just get $5 off, not 20%
and another thing,
i got some J.R.Watkins grapefruit dishsoap from well.ca because i was ordering something and needed to bump up my order total to get free shipping
and i was reading the back of the bottle and it says: "Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing."
... on skin? i am not supposed to get this dishsoap on my skin? how the hell am i supposed to wash the dishes?
oh this world is exhausting sometimes.
|Saturday, June 14th, 2014|
i went to a family & friends day at my sisters lawn bowling club today
& got to try out lawn bowling
it was kinda fun!
i cant say i was too good at it, but i also was not too bad, so thats ok.
it was quite warm out & very sunny & me being the fool i am did not put on sunscreen or wear a hat or anything sun smart
so i am burnt on my head and around my neck/chest area
in the evening i wanted to take a picture of the rug i made, so i took a bunch of pictures
this is the rug i made
i wish i could have shown my grandma, i think she would have really liked it
i had been wanting to make one for awhile now but i needed to wait till spring/summer time to buy a hula hoop to use as the frame
at least i know its something she would have been happy to see me do
this is the little strawberry patch i dug
its not very full, it has the 2 plants i bought from the store, the one from the front yard & the few i transplanted yesterday that are not doing too great today
i think they will be ok though?
i still have a whole bunch that need transplanting yet
this is the sweet potato i have been sprouting
i dont know if you can tell, but there are 5 sprouts starting, all below the water line for some reason?
however! today i noticed that one spot on the top is going to start sprouting, possibly 2 spots, but the second might just be a bump, time will tell
this second pic is just a closer picture of my largest sprout, you can see it has leaves!
these are my lemon trees
they actually turn 1 on july
i am going to transplant them soon, i just need to get around to it
& lastly, flowers from my front yard
|Friday, June 13th, 2014|
today has been a bit of an odd day
i slept in quite late, about 2 hours later than i usually do if left to sleep as much as i want
i decided to be productive and go work on the strawberries
i thought i would dig them out and plant some, i figured that i could just use the hand shovel but no, that dirt is hard
so i was using the big shovel and my dad came along to help and loosened up the dirt for me
i was digging up the plants from that point and it started to rain on me, so i decided to stop and just plant what i had already dug (about 8 or so plants?)
it would start to rain a bit and then stop and then start, who knows what this weather is like
i dont think it ever really developed into full rain
but i went and sat on the deck and cleaned out that discount pansy basket i bought the other day
after all the dead stuff was removed it looks not so bad, a little bit wilted but i think it will perk up
while i was sitting there on the steps doing all that a kitty cat walked by me
it was the cat from down the block who sometimes is around here and sometimes lets me pet her?
but hopefully she doesnt catch one of the little squirrels!
i realized that it is actually 2 years today that my timmy cat died
i knew it was around this time
i still miss him a lot and think of him a lot, but it doesnt really hurt much anymore
he was a good cat and had a good life
its strange though, there are still some days, especially when i get home late at night, when i walk up the steps to the door i can almost here him meowing at me, like he used to do, saying where the hell have you guys been, let me in so i can eat!
& i miss not having a kitty to pet
i wish kujo would let me pet him, birds are actually incredibly soft and nice to pet
but he is jumpy and does not like to be touched, so, that is not happening
... my poor timmy, i miss him.
i had a drB2 appointment today
he had an.. intern or something? ..someone watching him
so i only talk to him for a few min.
i hate it when doctors have students or whatever
well, it depends i guess
i didnt have much to talk about anyway, though i could have elaborated on the little bit i did say
but its all good
my dad drove me there and then after we did a bit of shopping
we went to this one walmart to look at the greenhouse
outside they had some dalias & roses & some larger perennials, all of which were really nice
but then inside the greenhouse area ALL of the plants were all wilted and half dead
they were horrible
later in the evening my dad took me to lowes and i looked at the greenhouse there
they had a few shelves of discount plants
i got a hanging basket of pansies for $3.25
it needs a bunch of work and some love, but well worth the low price
and then i got a few packs of bedding plants, one of pansies and one of dianthuses
they were only $0.50 each and both were fairly good, the dianthus was lovely but missing 2
i went to go do some more work with my strawberries tonight
but i did not get out there till 10pm and it started to get dark rather quickly
and trying to find little strawberry leaves hiding in between weeds in low light is not so fun
so hopefully i can finish that tomorrow
i am also almost finished the rug i have been weaving
i have been almost finished it for awhile but i keep adding more to it
i measured it tonight and its got a diameter of 19" so i was thinking why not go for 20"?!
so i will do that tonight!
& i bought radishes to make radish pickles
all the recipes i have found call for quite a bit of sugar & i am not so fond of sweet pickles
sweet radishes might be ok though, i do not really mind sweet pickled onions i dont think
