it started this way because i wanted to get a pic of Clean Windows. and then i saw that the stick in the vase with Mo's Hope dangling was matched up perfectly with the big cottonwood tree across the ditch where the 2 crows live
and then i invisible basted. but soon, i needed to go visit Allan's cat and feed her. his Aunt died in Colorado. and from there, what i'd thought would be a short visit to the old folks home to Alz. B. because her son is off skiing again and i am the resonable facsimile, Well...it was a long visit. i somehow didn't think and got there right before lunch and and her old Alzheimer's wing budd ies Peggy and Lucy were parked at her table. so...it felt right away like a party of some sort. and it was a Good day for Betty...she actually looked me in the face several times. and every time i went around behind her to the other side of her she would say "OH! HELLO!!!!!" as if i'd just arrived.and lunch was BIG. meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, mixed vegetables and apple slices. and she was thirsty so, 2 glasses of juice and 2 of water. feeding her was fun. and since Peggy and Lucy were there too, there was that conversational diversion. Peggy is mute but her eyes are sharp. Lucy is Lucy.

We sang the Battle Hym of the Republic too because of the man behind us. and i brought in the Mares eat Oats and Goats do to and Little Lambs eat Ivy from Jude's blog a while back and Betty made those sounds that you hear in Mexican music, the tongue trilling, and ululating too...just here and there. which made it quite great. and then i got home and dug the trench for dumping the Goats water from their tub into the this year 3 year old Cottonwood. So...all in all, not much of a cloth day but i did do this
and i'd made the agreement to wash one window a day and as i was doing this, i looked at this gourd that i grew and drew on maybe 15 years ago and well...
and last, i fooled around with the Unforseen hanging on the sewing lamp...seeing what it looked like that way
