i’ve been on a reading streak! it has felt really good. i owe you so so many reading posts, including about dreams of gods and monsters, pictured above! also, that mug? i tried the sharpie mug craft that you see everywhere on pinterest. i tried the version with oil based sharpies, but even with those, the edge around the top rim is already chipping a bit. ah, well.
i love ranunculus! i’ve been eying them in the store for months, but up until recently, they were all pretty rough and battered looking. i totally bought them the first time they looked healthy and lovely, though!
mirah just released a new album, and i got to see her in concert for the first time in a decade! you can hear the new album on spotify. i’m listening to it right now! you guys have spotify, right? because it is the BEST.
jake and i inadvertently had a night of local beer appreciation! both are really excellent, if you happen to see them!
the current state of the hex blanket! it’s slowly pushing all of the other things off of the coffee table. this has 13 rows and 10 columns pictured. i have two more rows worth of colors on hand, so i need to figure out what the last five will be, as well as two more column colors… i borrowed some leftover fingering weight yarn from a friend only to bring it home and realize they were almost exactly the same as some colors i already have represented here.
this robin just made it’s nest at my grandfathers!
i was there helping to pot some geraniums and other pretties for the summer.
not pictured but also happening: i’ve been getting into podcasts recently! i’m totally in love with radiolab (their sound editing is soooo good!) and 99% invisible, but also casually trying welcome to night vale. are any of you fans of podcasts? do you have any suggestions for me?
