My New Grocery Getter


a 1961 Columbia replete with new wheels and white wall tires… now to find a basket… perfect for hopping over to the HEB for some soy milk and Fancy Feast.
the perfect ride to my city council meetings, don’t you think?

My Huge Triangle Shawl. I do love it, it’s so soft but I think I would probably add a stitch every other row to make it a more gradual deeper triangle. I finished it a while ago, but just got around to taking a pic.

Curious about the squirrel? He just left and we quickly covered the hole… or more like DH did. I was out back drinking coffee a couple days ago and a squirrel traveled the whole length of the rain gutter to the corner of the roof and stared at me for like 10 minutes….I hope he finds a nice new home.

The dogs so want to be in these days…  both the heat and the mean-spirited mockingbird make inside a much happier place to be. The damn bird keeps swooping on them, seems late to be protecting a nest…may just be an asshole. 

Tuesday I made a mild dish soap spray to combat the darn stink bugs on my tomatoes… I spritzed them up and I swear it’s been two days since I’ve had to flick one of those little buggers off. I like this… instead of killing the bugs or poisoning my tomatoes I just made them taste yucky to them.

    I picked up sweet bike basket for my Texas Rangerette and my Raliegh Stowaway at the SFMOMA gift store site. They’re great because they double as shopping baskets.
    Also, thanks for mentioning (and introducing me to) Jolie Holland. I picked up Escondida last week as a result and it’s playing in the shop now.

    Nice ride! Are you gonna paint it? I think some sparkly tassles from the ends of the handle bars would be cool 😉

    Your bike is so cool; I’m jealous. BTW, do you have a particular pattern and/or yarn for your washcloths? I make the MasonDixon ones but they smell funky sooner than I think they should.
