ursulas_alcove: My favorite doctor (c is for civilized)
To all the people who buy from small businesses, buy local, buy from artisans, a big thank you! Your patronage means more than you could know. It means bills got paid, food got bought, art supplies were acquired, show fees were paid, basically allowing us to do more of what we do. Vivat!

Autumn is in the air

Today we awoke with Autumn fast approaching, a chill in the air. The storm from Houston has finally arrived tonight. Knowing the weather would soon reach us, it was another long day of weeding, preparing beds, harvesting, and planting. Somehow I managed to get laundry done, start a custom hat, and get a few dyebaths going. Bread even got made. Orders were shipped. Errands were run. Very productive. The rabbit has been my constant companion. I have to be careful not to step on him as I work. We just happen to be one of the few houses without dogs running around. The rabbit is wild. He's been eating clover and fertilizing my lawn, a great addition to our permaculture system. The oregano was harvested for one last dyebath. The cooked remnants were composted. They will be a great mulch. I am also planning a light yellow dye mix with mint, goldenrod, and tarragon. It will be a lovely experiment, fingers crossed.

Wishing you a safe and restful holiday weekend! Be safe. For those of you along the Texas/Louisianna coast, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
