When the winds were gusting and flailing the loose mesh screen about on the porch Miss Karma was fascinated. I moved the chair over next to the door so she could watch in comfort.
The most interesting part of the display for Karma was the carpeting. It is only tacked down by the door and on the opposite end of the porch to hold it in place. When the wind is gusting just right the carpet poofs up and down...obviously as alive as her plastic shower liner toy--LOL!
The wind finally shifted direction, the dryer flap silenced, and I finally slept! Nine hours!! Ahhh! It was sumptuous!
I noticed this white, fluffy, mold-like substance on the catnip leaves a while ago--been spreading and growing. I tried to take a close-up and discovered that my camera's focus is not working. Not in regular or macro? Dagan was using it and possibly changed something? Would only seem to focus at one particular distance. Have to have the kids look at it on Wednesday. Maybe no video making till I find out what is going on? I might give it a go and see, though. ;)
Anyways, I had been plucking leaves that showed this mold--until it was useless. I finally cut them all off this afternoon and tossed them out. :( Not sure what it was? Wasn't on the other herbs...at least not so far. Time will tell, eh? I'll keep an eye on them. If anyone knows anything, please let me know, okay?
My "art" project today was working on the Christmas cards.
Started by stamping the sentiment on the inside so that any boo-boos won't be much of a loss. (We recycle scraps for papermaking.)
In sessions--I stamp, lay them out, and then leave that batch to dry well, because I am using pigment ink that takes longer to dry thoroughly. I'll do some more tomorrow as we are doing about 80 of them. The assembly line has begun. :)
Was a dark, rainy day today. I did get to sleep in the middle of the night instead of morning, so that's a plus. Tomorrow I will be up early, call the office about repairs, and hopefully will see the UPS man carrying a big, heavy box!! :):)
Chat again tomorrow!
