A Quick Trip

I went to visit a friend in Washington last week. She owns the Purly Shell over in the Port of Ilwaco and to get there we take the bridge from Astoria. Imagine our surprise at finding a huge cruise ship in port at Astoria!

I can’t even properly describe how large this thing was. Do any of you know of cruise ships in Astoria? I don’t know much about Oregon really so it’s all a surprise.

This little church was also a bit of a surprise. We have driven by it a few times and I asked Shannon to stop this time so I could snap a few photos. It has a great presence and the setting is lovely.

I really like the stained glass on the one end. It’s the most striking feature of this church for me. I think I remember reading that it was built in 1904 or maybe 1914? I’m not sure now. In any case, the church is about a hundred years old.

It is also surrounded by these blooming sweet peas. I think they are sweet peas. Does anyone know if I’m right? I know it is some kind of blooming pea. :)

Dyeing Again

I had a little fun with Tina and Grace at BlackSheep last weekend. We decided to play with dye and try out our hand at handpainting some thread for tatting.

After several hours and mixing of bottles, we had quite a collection of fun threads dyed. I’m hoping that this might be the start of a new business venture. Anyone want to try tatting some tencel? :)

Garden 2015 (Well Half of It)

20150510_190649

As you can read on the photo, I planted quite a few things last weekend. I also left some space to plant a few more things. The weather turned just cold enough that I didn’t want to risk planting the tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, and okra.

I’m looking forward to a lovely harvest this summer. So many things I can’t wait to see. And taste. :)

Hello Froggy!

SAM_0014

I don’t think I’ve shared these photos with you yet. While in Indiana, I found a larger tree frog and decided to move him from his precarious position on the deck to a more secure position in a tree. I was worried that the cats might find him and have a fun time battering him.

In any case, the frog stayed in the tree. I took some photos. All was right with my world for 5 minutes. It was heaven.

Babies in Hands and Boxes

20150505_080419.jpg

Some of the many mini satin babies born in my barn recently. I had 6 in my hand. They were pretty wiggly, but I think I managed an ok photo for you.

Here is the other mini satin litter in their nest in the box. Yes, there are 8 in there. No, you can’t really see them all. Yes, the fact that they are all black does make it difficult to tell that there are 8 too. And it doesn’t help that both of the mini satin litters were black and you can’t really tell them apart in photos. Just take my word for it.

Truffle was kindly feeding her litter and I thought it was rather entertaining. It’s not often that I spot a doe feeding her kits, but Truffle has been kind enough to feed hers several times while I’ve been in the barn for morning chores. I’m not sure if she is waiting for me or it’s just convenient to feed them before I give her some treats. Either way, she’s a funny doe. And I enjoy watching the bunny toes wiggle in the air.
