Truth in Advertising
And then I went to a flea market in Fortuna yesterday, and found 15 vintage postcards and four books. No photo. I guess I'm on a bit of a roll...and there's the monthly flea next Sunday, which I'll attend.
We've really been blessed with good, as in "normal," weather here on the North Coast. While the rest of the country suffers with extreme heat, flooding, and wildfires. As per usual, fires are burning north, east and south of us and we're getting smoke. But no fires in Humboldt County at the moment.
For at least twenty years I've been threatening to cut my hair VERY short...and I finally had it done, ten days ago. So, this is what I actually look like now. In my mind I still look like I did when I was 30 years younger...but this is reality.
I started a knitting project this week. I'm actually knitting a garment, a shawl-collared, kimono-style, sweater-jacket, from commercial (superwash) wool. I hadn't bought any commercial yarn in at least twenty years, seeing as I spun so much yarn for over a decade. And in the recent past I've been knitting scarves out of the remaining handspun silk yarns I have. But I recently rediscovered my love of knitting, so I'm making a garment, the pattern to which I've had for probably 15 years, although it's still relevant (not dated) today.
So this is life in Rose Cottage this summer -- knitting, reading, resting, hanging with BeeGee, a flea market or yard sale now and then. Priceless.
