Pillars of the Earth, Anyone?

Half Time

Wow. Summer's half over. This is the shawl I've been working on. It was done, but now it's not done. It needs some modifications.
I started a sock Sunday night so I'd have something easy for the bus on Monday and I'm pretty much done with the leg. This is why I love socks. So practical. So easy. So fast.

A house on Bryant Ave has its very own lions guarding the walk; how amazing is that? It's not a mansion, just a regular house.
Two more nights of Shadow Puppet shows.
Last night there was a good crowd.
This is one of my favorite characters.
I would take more pictures but it's pretty difficult once the sun is completely down. You'll just have to imagine the rest.

Kid Sightings

Boy-child was spotted after an eye exam the other day. He generally goes to bed right before I get up, so I don't see him very often:
Girl-child purchased some cloth in Ghana and one of her talented girlfriends taught her how to make a dress out of it. She was wearing it when she stopped by the other day on her way to Highland Fest:
I worked rather obsessively on a shawl yesterday; 164 stitches grafted. Once I have it blocked and the ends worked in I'll take a picture.

Quote of the Day

Every woman should marry an archaeologist
because she grows increasingly attractive to him
as she grows increasingly to resemble a ruin.

Well, looks like we'll be going to Lindstrom in September to shop at Miss Elsie's Yarnery and see the knitted fish (see below) and probably have lunch, too, since Kathy has told us of all the places to eat in and around Lindstrom...

...In the meantime ...

After Sunset Shadow Puppet Shows have begun:
Twirling continues:
Silliness abounds:
The House at Pooh Corner takes on a new look for the 21st century:
And we continue to try and stop to smell the flowers:

Hooray for the bees.

This is simply too absurd to pass up. It's less than 50 miles from my house; I may have to go:
