This Year’s Harvest
One for each of us.
In my DIL’s Flowerpot
A week’s difference between the photographs.
It’s a big flowerpot on the back deck. Has a hibiscus tree growing in it.
Silent Sunday Guest Blog
From Deb in Colorado. Unfortunately, no picture of the pie. I hear it was blueberry. Mmmmmm. Next time!
Where Did the End Table Go?
I was picking up a quilt in a Wexford neighborhood and saw this furniture out in front of a house. You remember how I like to photograph what’s left at the curb. I pulled over and tried to get a photo but it was tight so I thought, “I’ll pick up the quilt, then drive back this same way and shoot it on the way home.” But someone scooped the end table before I got back!.
Beets. Yes or no?
Do you like to eat beets?
The beets were delivered in the farm box today.
I thought I’d prepare them for supper. After I cooked them on top of the stove for about a half an hour, I saw the pan of beautiful crimson liquid and quickly retrieved a skein of ecru wool yarn which was meant to be dyed. I’d received it from a woolswapper, Cheryl, and once thought I’d experiment and dye it with Kool-Aid. She’d sent me a skein of Kraemer Textiles undyed yarn. I soaked it in water snd vinegar first and lowered it into the pan. Covered it and simmered the pan a bit. I dyed just the one skein of yarn in beet juice and a bit of white vinegar, rinsed it in cool water and hung to dry in the bathroom. Cant wait to knit with it.
But I digress. Beets? To eat. Yes or no?
A Book for Throwback Thursday
I found this little book on my shelf.
Inside is the name of a dear family friend and the year is 1936.the place name inscribed is Inveraray, which is home to the Duke of Argyll
I look up a couple of surnames. My great grandmother on my paternal side was Rosa Kerr.
So what to do with this little book?
I put it back on the shelf.
Trains overhead while walking with a friend on Heritage Trail Pittsburgh along the Allegheny River, Monday morning. I like the sound of a train whistle.
And Saturday night at Sunset- in Ohio. We crossed the tracks just before the red lights flashed and the gates came down. We pulled in the adjacent lot. I got out and filmed the freight train-a short one. It’s almost 2 and a half minutes, start to finish, which is a short freight train.
Oscar Catches a Cool Drink
James was watering in the front yard.
Oscar thought he’d catch a refreshing drink from the hose spray.
And a rainbow appeared.
