This is what your brain feels like after playing bejeweled blitz for too long. Fun times. And I’m still not even any good at it.
Last weekend I crocheted another cowl scarf. 3 skeins in 3 days. Someone is anxious for chilly weather. And, hey, what’s up with the cool summer and then warm september? The trees don’t know what to do, turn red, and lose all their leaves off the top, but stay green everywhere else.
Last weekend I was supposed to cross off no. 17 on this year’s list (ride in a hot air balloon). But it rained, so we rescheduled. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the weather behaves for my next date. The night before my first scheduled launch I was able to capture an Etsy treasury and it was of course Hot Air Balloon themed. You can see what it looked like above.
At the fair, a few weeks ago, they had one of those booths where you can take “old timey” pictures. I’ve been thinking that I want to add it to my list of things to do in 2010. It was hard not to do it right then, but I started thinking about these pictures I had seen recently from one of my flickr contacts. Anna Allen is involved in living history and re-enactment activities and had her portrait taken at one recently. Yes, that picture above is a modern picture of her, not a scan of an old picture. I’ve been obsessed with these pictures she had taken and want to find a photographer who works in wet plate method and get my own photos taken. How cool is that? Check out Anna’s flickr to see more pictures.
