Down in the dumps

After a day of unstoppable suckiness, I figured a few pictures of anything might help. I got another shipment from The Loopy Ewe of Fiesta Boomerang in Amazon and Caribbean for the Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. They are beautiful. I am forcing myself to finish socks and the green bag before I even wind them into center-pull balls.

I saw the The Avett Brothers this past weekend at the Riverfront Harvest Festival on Saturday. They were great, as usual. Hanging out in the crowd up front was like being in the chorus. Almost everyone there sang along during the songs and was very appreciative. I'm sure there are oodles of pictures on flickr if you do a search for them. There were a thousand or so before that show.

Because of the storm, this week at the beach there was enough seaweed to do some Andy Goldsworthy art, but I couldn't come up with anything. I did find a wee baby crab in one pile, and I spent way too much time pondering how many creatures had lost their housing.

I also added to my shell jar (I tend to like the smallish bits)

And because of the storm is was great kite weather

And this one was higher than the other two

The weekend was good. The week since I've been back has left more than a little to be desired. I guess my world is just restoring it's balance - can't have too much good stuff.
