A pot like a song that Johnny Cash would write and sing.

While I was cantaloping

...this guy wandered in from the back screen door. If I don't shut the main door this is what comes in....

and he is right in the middle of the bathroom floor and I want to go in there!!! He is about 3 inches long. and here is my cat

But not going to get it. And I don't kill spiders, so I am here blogging in hopes that when I return he will find a place to hide from me.

Cantaloping




Hey who are these guys?
Cantaloping-
And the cantalope was yummy, organic fresh and local from New Moon Farms in Huntersville.

But don't document it she says and turns away, as cats will do.




Ha ha too funny.

Pass along the tile

Today Becky, Ju Ian, Cindy and I created these awesome tiles. Inspired by Terry Shipley's recent trip to Penland...

We each cut 5 tiles, decorated the first one, turned it over and passed it to the next person, leaving a couple little lines hint to get the next tile started. They came out sooo awesome. Some samples.
