i need to. and if that were literal, this would be one of the hands i would need to use...
i hardly recognize this hand...except for the scabs. the bandaid. look, though, how the veins and ligaments or whatever are so prominent, and then...those pleats of skin at the wrist..............
there's a cloth under all this
an aborted saradine can attempt. now in re dye. i am not very good at all this.
This is some of the silk noile i got from Dharma Trading. i kind of don't like it. it is tame. civilized noil. i like rough, raw noile. but, oh well. so this is in the big Walnut pot which is an enamel pot. it's in there with that giant iron thing that i've showed pics of before. This cloth, when i get it somewhere close to "right" will be my Judy Martin dress.
Judy's Journal, blog post of August 19th, 2013 Celebrate and Cry. ever since i saw that, i've had this idea of making a "dress". and well, it isn't really a dress, it's a jumper sort of thing. it is similar, Judy's, to some of my denim uniforms that i have for summer. i have no clothing words to describe it....don't know them, but it's loose and well...drapes. i think the silk noil that i don't really like will do that. Why i want it is because going out so early to do the Goat things, i need layers. and soon i will be coming back IN where it might be moderately warm or really warm, depending, and i DO NOT LIKE changing clothes entirely. so if i could really just remove layers?
under the "Judy Martin" dress i could have first, against the skin, leggings. then over them, some cut off levis. (there would be wool socks). i used to wear this kind of thing in the winter because i liked the look of it. but i remember too that the "dress", or long skirt, or jumper, created a pocket of warmth between it and everything under it. So...not to go on and on, this is in keeping with the Goldilocks Principle and we'll see.
here we have it. a half ton of alfalfa. we had to seperate the half ton bale into "flakes" to get it off the truck. but we did it. i really like determined women. a Lot. and tonight there are very very peaceful Goats, lounging in the Evening Sun, chewing cud and finally, all is well again.
and i received word that the drum, the Yantra, as he calls them, will be set into the postal system tomorrow.
