Since our last transmission:
*All I want to do is paint green things, as evidenced by the random sketchbook page.
*July 4th visitors were delightful (and were adept at unearthing birds' nests).
*I saw the Shaker exhibit at the Farnsworth for my birthday and it was beyond words. The Farnsworth is a terrific museum (and the Wyeth Center is my favorite space). Speaking of favorite places/spaces, if you find yourself in Rockland, Maine anytime in the near future, in the name of all that is good, please go to hello hello Books/Rock City Cafe. You can thank me later.
Other summer things?
*I made dandelion wine and lived to tell the tale. I used a recipe from this local cookbook, but these directions are pretty close. And if you're wondering what it tastes like, to quote Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine, "I'm a fire-eater! Whoosh!"
*A baby blanket finished for a brand spankin' new niece.
*Fireworks. Because, the 4th. And summer.
