It’s too warm this week to knit blankets, so I’ve switched to amigurumi (the craft of crocheting little stuffed toys). It’s finicky work and I’m always deeply uncertain about the results, which is why as soon as there is a hint of coolness in the air, I plan to go right back to making blankets. Anyway, this week I made this unicorn.
It’s springtime for the cacti too.
Apparently, this is the week we get spring flowers in Northern California.
I spotted a couple of women walking their donkeys on one of my walks this week. Could this be the most California thing ever?
The squirrels appear to have had a good night.
My cat’s (planned and much needed) weight loss has stalled, so this week I tried adding morning exercise into the mix. It did not go well.
School is underway here at Caterpickles Central. On the first day back to school, Canelo joined The Thirteen-Year-Old for lunch to hear all about it.
Happy 4th of July!
When I planted this sunflower I had no idea it would end up growing to be this tall.
My husband spotted this little piece of public art, thoughtfully updated for the pandemic while biking about town this past weekend.
