Betty Queen Bee
Whenever we see a gopher tortoise in the yard, we stay inside till they're finished eating. We noticed if we walk by they'll tuck their head inside and then run to their tunnel right away. So we wait till they eat their fill and meander back to their tunnel undisturbed, before we go outside. I read gopher tortoise eat certain plants at particular times of the year; they can tell which ones are in their most nutritious state. Yesterday I noticed this one only ate one type of weed and nothing else. It has flower buds on it right now.
Ever notice how things just pile up on kitchen counters or flat surfaces in your home? Well in our home they do, maybe not yours. Anyway we did some house cleaning yesterday and our kitchen counter was completely cleared off. I took that opportunithy to display a sushi set I made. I noticed the coral color of the fish is the same color as the walls. It's not the greatest photo under fluorescent lights, but there are better photos of this sushi or appetizer set available in my Etsy shop.
The photo is of my cat Betty, queen bee of the house. She's lying on the bathroom vanity counter, saying, look at me. Tomorrow I go to my pine needle basket class (check this link out for a basket tutorial). I was just thinking I love working with my hands and learning new things, so I'm sure I'll have a great time. This morning I'll gather some pine needles from my back yard. I'll soak them over night and they'll be ready to use tomorrow. Stay tuned for basket weaving details. Please leave a comment, that way I can visit your your blog or site if you have one. Thanks for visiting.
