I like blogging to be like food — seasonal. Current. But, something about the extremity of this past winter demands a little documentation. Here are a few windows into the winter of 2015 from this quarter acre suburban lot.
because of weather cancellations, my birthday lasted til the 28th!
snowbank grew another foot after this pic; lattice guy wires broke
sewing? not so much. but collage and photo apps – yes!
We waited for Finn to vomit at pet ER — after the FIRST brownie incident
I thought about my father’s trip to the South Pole (I wonder why) (far RT)
I thought about selling some of our stuff online
I thought about how stories choose us and vice versa
Redoing ‘Artist’s Way’ – shot this pic on an ‘artist’s date’
got busy on instagram – started #fabricinfusedlandscapes — still loving dianaphotoapp
finished SSDI five year review and resubmitted housing apps for my sister
thought more about story – specifically a white woman with black characters
I worried about power and the house and filed first ever insurance claim for damage
I wondered where we would put the snow
I worried about K’s back and my elbow
I really worried about Finn leaping (he did once)
I learned that I could clamp my legs around Finn’s neck while playing tug-of-war (seated)
I worked on quilting these houses, but it was the photoapp grabbing me – not thread
worried about far-off boys
worried about Finn getting to the pin cushion (again!)
reveled in winter salads
reveled in light – esp early, early
but also, late, late
reveled in light passing through cloth
felt joy in unexpected places (Costco parking lot)
fell in love
More recent event: I found a dead eagle yesterday. The wings are in my freezer. I know! I know! — I have a call in to the authorities.
