A Little Concert

I went with friends.  It was loud.  It was raucous.  There was a lot of drinking (not on my part) and smoking of both kinds (again, not on my part).  I skipped out of the last band a bit early as I was tired and had really had enough of being around a large crowd.

The important thing to note is that I knit a lot at the concert.  On a piece that I was knitting for the IOLI convention that happened last week.  It was raffled off and I hope the new owner loves it.  I loved knitting it.  Plus, it’s purple.  I love purple.

There Was Berry Picking

I had a grand time picking berries at Thierbachs.  The property is well maintained, the variety of produce is impressive, and the picking season was good this year.  I missed my chance at raspberries in June, so I guess I’ll just have to go back and pick more blackberries this summer.  I’m really looking forward to the peaches too. I put all of the fruit (blackberries, blueberries, gooseberries, and sour cherries) in the freezer for now.  I didn’t want to heat up the house too much in the summer.  So, I’ll can the jam later this fall.  Plus, I don’t trust the stove right now.  It has been acting up a bit.

The Heat Has Been Brutal

They are hot.  They are tired.  And they want this heat to stop.  Poor hot babies.  This one sort of melted through the cage wire.  If they would stop piling on each other, it might be a little cooler.  Why is it that animals seem to huddle together and pile on top of one another when it is hot out?  It’s just like little kids that want to cling to you on the hottest day of the year.  Oy.

Broad Ripple

Broad Ripple is a place that is hard to describe.  It is one of those “towns” within a city.  Artsy, funky, foodie, and right next to a great walking trail.  I had the opportunity to stop here on my way back from DC and again a few weeks later.  I was impressed with the variety and quality of the small businesses here.

Had a perfectly tasty grilled cheese here.  Brie, bacon, apple slices, cheddar, and strawberry jam.  I’m not sure what else.  I ate it quickly and appreciatively.

You just never know what you are going to find.

HAHAHAHAHAHA.  I absolutely enjoyed this.

I would love to eat here.  It just screams “I HAVE YUMMY FOOD.”  At least, it does to me.

This place.  Oh, now, this place.  I was very sad that they were closed when I first came through.  Happily they were open on the second trip.  Pastries.  Baked goods.  Croissants.  Maccaroons.  Oh.  The yummy.  I will most certainly be heading back to this shop.  The Eclair I had was just too right.

Plus We Did Some Sight Seeing After

We found the Milk Bar by Momofuku.  Which made Tina inordinately happy.  She was mad that we found it the day before we left.  I think she might have eaten there three times after I left DC and before she boarded the plane.

Pretty sure this was the FBI building.  I decided not to go too close. lol

Grand statues may be found everywhere!  I’ll try not to post too many more of those.

Modern art is not my thing.  Monika was enjoying it though.

I did enjoy the rainbow.  This was made of so many threads.  It was neat.

Obligatory white house shot.

And I did find this wonderful quilt in the Shaker exhibit in the National Museum of Art.  I think that is what it was called.  We went in several museums.  Anyway!  Back to our regularly scheduled programming soon.:)
