I captured this flag at the Legislature Grounds yesterday.
The wind was quite brisk but it was a wonderful day with no rain for a change.
Today, it rained for a few hours in early afternoon.
This is the book on my night table this week. The same author of Bridges of Madison Country which is one of my favorite movies. Love the story.
I have started a couple of books in the last week which did not work out so they are off to the thrift store. I have to remind myself that just because I start a book I don`t need to finish.
This one is going well.
I never put a poncho together so with a bit of help from my niece and ventured out. The blanket already had the black edging so I just left it. I removed a piece of velcro and the leftovers of a bag it used to roll into.
The hood and the pocket were cut from the tie dyed blanket. The hood is sewn into a slit cut in the center of the blanket. This should be a double seam. I used a stitched zigzag to sew in the pocket. The pocket is placed on the inside of the poncho so your arms stay warm too.
I realized that the spoon needed to be plastic, ceramic or stainless steel to survive in the salt. I found a nice ceramic spoon which holds 1/2 tsp of salt. I have put salt in this cut glass jam/condiment jar but it is not the look I am going for.
I have been looking for a few weeks and I press on to find a container that has a lid with an opening that works for the spoon I have. Keeping in mind my blue and yellow kitchen I would like ceramic or glass.
I will post the winner here when I find it.
This works really well when making pasta because the salt should be added while the water is boiling.
I love this bearded iris.
