Rustlings in the green....imagination, art, whimsy

Catching Up...

Playing blog catch-up today. I've got a bunch of pictures that want to be shared. So, in no particular order of importance or chronology:

My granddaughter Raven came to stay for four days while she had chicken pox. She was over the worst of it by that time and so we had a pretty good time of it. She became very interested in needlefelting, and wanted to learn how to do what I was doing.

Wow. In true Raven fashion, she picked up on the technique and ran with it, creating a tableful of goodies she planned to give to friends. She did NOT want me to take her picture (not because of the pox, but because she didn't have any make-up on....sigh)

So I just waited until she re-appeared and then clicked (wicked grandma....):
Here's a close-up of her creations (I may be a wicked grandma, but I'm a grandma with plastic frogs for lilypad creations...)
It was wonderful to see her enthusiasm and her artistic sensibilities at play....note the extra wisps of color she added to her flowers:
She also started to make a star which turned into a neat, firm little flower. Then she was showing me how to make it!

Pastors for Peace stopped by a few weeks ago. This is a group which comes in small caravans from all points in the country and meets up in a Texas/Mexico border town. In this annual action, called Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba, they cross the border to take humanitarian aid to Cubans, in protest and defiance of the inhumane embargo.

My iBook started losing the letters on the keys almost from the moment I got it in summer of 2005. I tried writing the letters with Sharpies twice (don't know why I thought it would work the second time...) then sort of got used to it. A, S and E were the first to go, but then others began to disappear. Then, when I was organizing (I've been doing a LOT of organizing lately) a few weeks ago, I found some press-on vinyl letters and decided to see if they would work.

Now, I thought it would be fun and whimsical to mix them up a bit, lower case and upper, and also not put them on straight.

But a couple of people (Paul, Shaun....I'm talking about you!) seem to be a tad disturbed by the letters cavorting on the keys like this.


oh, poo - I've got plenty more pictures, but my blogging time has run out.

Namaste and love,
Zann
