The remaining pieces available are listed in my etsy shop with their new, still affordable, prices here. Earlier today I caught myself thinking if only I could go to Micheal’s after work, but no, I need to get home to finish my daily piece, But NO, I’m done, I have my evening all to myself and anything my heart can dream of. If I want to, I can sit on my front porch and read all evening. I will predict this coming month will have a lot of cooking. Matt’s been mentioning the homemade pizza I made and a few weeks ago I took a crack at making my own spaghetti noodles after reading about it in this book. Now I want to make some french toast with homemade bread after reading this post. Also, I predict more spinning. Yes, with cooler air coming in, I think it’s time to break out my spinning wheel again.
Garden update: A couple weeks ago when I had the flu I got so sick I couldn’t go outside. Unfortunately this meant that I let my garden go unwatered for a few days. That was all it took for my (probably) root bound container garden to shrivel up and die. I continued watering for a couple weeks hoping that they might come back, but the damage had already been done. My small pumpkins started turning orange, so finally last week I cut them off their shriveled, brown vine. Here you can see the size they reached before the fateful flu of 2009. I left them out on our patio table and this weekend I looked out and one of the pumpkins was in the yard. I scrambled out to find that a squirrel (evil, evil) had started devour one and had attempted to carry off the other.
I also got a message that my “you’re my favorite” grass painting was featured on another blog. Hard to believe that piece hasn’t sold with how many views and how many miles it has received on the internet. It made quite the rounds at one point on Tumblr, and has been featured on a bunch of websites.
