Meanwhile, back here, this blog is what you might call wide ranging, from stories of my houseplants and the adventures of being the neighborhood Plant Clinic Lady, not a job I applied for
To book reviews and why I liked or didn't what I'm currently involved in reading
To food and the adventures I have in the kitchen, creating and improvising all kinds of dishes, particularly with vegetables from my farmshare, and the occasional recipe review from other people's books
To the resident pets, Marigold the Burmese and Duncan, the Big Black Cat, and, watch this space, there may be a new resident chez Boud before too long, a singing one..
Marigold here suspiciously checking on a mouse I knitted from yarn I'd spun
And Duncan assisting with stick weaving
To all kinds of crafty and home decorish ideas usually low or no-budget ones
No cost rearrangement to free up counter space
No cost arrangement to provide myself with lower counter space to accommodate my lack of inches.
To my local walks in a beautiful region
Local events get in here, too, here the Italian American festival of 2014, best food evah
and last but they would say far from least, to the life and times of the Dollivers, my five character dolls, Blondie Firstborn, Dreads, Call Me Michelle, Bette Davis and NameMe, who have adventures in Field and Fen, get about all over the place, pose everywhere, and have their traveling accompanist, pianist Elton, who creates popup concerts on request.
They have an extensive wardrobe, thanks to their endless demands on Boud to create outfits, knitted, crocheted, stitched and draped, for every new venture
Serious weight training, left to right NameMe, Dreads, Call Me Michelle, Bette Davis, Blondie Firstborn
Birdwatching at Cape May
Doctor's office visit
2014 Westminster Dog Show at home, with Dog Wrangler Name Me dolled up to show her kennel, see the Westminster winner at her feet, from the Dolliver Kennels
NameMe is active in the kitchen, too, here making pasta from scratch
She left the resident agility mixed breed in charge of the Easter eggs
Pianist Elton leads a singalong
Friend in both art and music, Stefi accompanies the singers dressed in their best black
And here the assembled company welcomes back the Chilean miners to safety, wearing sympathy hard hats
They love a wedding, note the fascinator worn by Bette Davis
