Always hated the timing of my birthday... end of summer and back too school.. now it's just the end of summer and endless cold gloomy days too look forward too!

week 34 ~ About the Ground

Maybe some of these flowers aren't really about the ground  for some reason my poppies didn't grow this year.. this is what the deer left me!

More flowers and Bee
What I spent my week doing  For some reason I twist the 'first' row (odd count peyote) and spend hours ripping things out or just cutting the threads...  Finished with NO TWIST!

Week 31 ~ Outside the Box

Well this is more inside the box... I'm, living in a grey damp world... the fog rolled in last week and will not leave... did I say it's  cold and damp here, we seem to see the sun for a few seconds a day
You've seen this view  of my sometimes water sometimes intertidal shluck quite a few times in the last 18 months  My world currently ends at the edge of the lawn...

'View' from the ferry landing....

Well I'm all for getting out of this box!  To see how other people interpreted this weeks prompt click on the linkz link!

Week 30 ~Celebrate a moment of life. ...

My husband has a 30 ft Acadian  Yawl called Euridice aka "Money Pit"  The engine quit about a month ago ... So the engine was pulled and turned out to be a pile of rust with very few functioning pieces..  ie it probably should have quit long ago!

My sweet comments along the lines of you wanted a sail boat now you have a SAIL BOAT didn't fly!

Anyway last weekend he finally decided that the engine wasn't going to miraculously re-install itself and work, so he went SAILING...  He actually attended the Roosevelt Cup Race off of Campobello Island.  Sunday afternoon there is a reception that I usually attend.  A couple of us walk on the ferry and get picked up from the ferry landing....  I came home with Captain Jim  and My husband got towed out to his dinghy... Where he got left for the night, the following morning he had to row the dinghy towing the boat for over a mile so that he could catch the tide and start "SAILING" home....  As you can see he did make it!

Not sure this is a moment in life that he will want to remember, and I have discovered that he doesn't listen to anything anyone says unless they are talking about boat engines! So this will always be remembered as the summer of 'boat-brain'.

week 29 ~ Celebrate sweetness

Well I couldn't persuade my 3 cats to all wander in front of the camera at the same time so you'll have to settle for my flower tower... which survived the hurricane (because the base is broken and we couldn't move it)
Impatience... colours were suppose to be random...

Then there is the bracelet that I made this week...ended up much smaller than intended so I guess I have to keep it!  :)
Leather bracelet with a Raku glass bead
