On the way to Leah's in the morning I stopped at Bed, Bath and Beyond and got my top sheet and pillow cases. Complete new bedding for me--tada! You know how I like variety...might have to build on this fresh start--hehe! I've never had variety in bedding--hummm....
Oh! A few months ago Ruby told me about an artist lady who used cat whiskers for fine lines in paintings. I told her that in all my years with all my cats I had never noticed a stray cat whisker. She said she finds them every so often and would look for me.
Lo and behold--Karma left two whiskers on her chair throw in a matter of days! I was surprised to find one--let alone two. How could I have had cats most of my life and not found one shed whisker? Do you think Miss Karma read my mind and obliged me? After all--she does understand English better than I do cat--ROFL!!
Anyways, I grabbed a container to put these odd treasures in...
...and will have to try painting a thin line with them one day, of course. I would think watercolors would be just perfect! :)
I don't have the pictures or the videos from our papermaking session yesterday. :( I ran out of room on my camera. Dagan and Leah have the newer version of the same camera so she lent me their memory card to make our second video--but then I forgot my memory card over there last night. Leah made 28 sheets of red paper!! That is the most we have ever made in one day. This new system works very efficiently--obviously! I'll show you tomorrow. :)
Leah has some shopping to do today so she'll bring the memory card over and I can post the pictures of our new papermaking set-up tomorrow. I'll probably get the new youtube videos up later tonight, too. We'll see. :)
It was soooo hot that it felt like your bare feet were burning on Leah's deck yesterday! (We were drying paper outside in the sun on the deck.) Mid 90's or higher--I never did hear exactly--but by later in the evening it was still 95 degrees when I got home--arg! Melting weather! Today is supposed to be a little cooler--whatever that means--hehe! Definitely AC for me!
I had gotten a notice in the mail about a UPS delivery back on the 6th that I missed?? (Not sure why--I was home? And why didn't I get the usual sticky pad notice instead of a card much later in the regular mail?) Anyways, I called them Monday when I got the notice and the lady said they'd deliver it on Tuesday. Of course they never delievered it. I was gone all day yesterday and they came, of course. It did say first attempt--so I hope they are coming back today (got a sticky pad notice--a good sign?). I am wondering if this might not be the replacement plate I haven't received? Hopefully I'll find out today. :)
UPS has been kind of off lately. New employees. Smashed packages. Hummm? Aren't there supposed to be people waiting in line for jobs? You'd think the ones who were employed would be extra efficient at their jobs, you know? Go figure. Maybe they have cut employee numbers and they are overworked? Maybe that's it?
Well, definitely an R&R day today for me. A good day to get lost in the Middle Ages again. Boy--do I miss the days where I could really get lost in time and read till my eyes were crossing and lids drooping. But if I have to take it 1-2 hours at a stretch--I'm there!! :):)
Have a great day!!
