How house sparrows got their name...

Sunday, August 19, 2007

"Annie, how good are your animal removal skills?"
"Um... relentless?"

This little house sparrow decided to come into Ann's bedroom through the air conditioner in the window... and then cowered in the corner trapped by the ferocious Mickey. After flying once around the room, and stirring up several dormant dust bunnies we captured the little bird with a trashcan and pink towel, and took her out to the back yard to set her free. After a few moments of shock, she shook the dust bunny off her head and flew away into the nearest tree.

Shopping spree!

Saturday, August 18, 2007

Today I stocked up on yarn so I'm not lamenting about being poor in my dorm room instead of being crafty. I saw the new "Vanna's Choice" colour palette and was instantly in love; I had to have them! It's 100% acrylic, but nice and soft. Hopefully I'll have a new project to show this yarn off soon, but I'll be moving and settling into my new dorm room over the next two weeks, so we'll see.

Dangerous places for plants

Saturday, August 11, 2007

I'm not sure who invented the bed-level windowsill, but indeed, this is a dangerous place to set one's precious things. Yesterday evening, as my beau napped and I crushed the Aztecs in Black & White 2, he inadvertently kicked my orchid from the sill in attempt to get comfortable. Luckily, the precious thing survived with a few battle scars for character.

Faun - WIP

This little faun has been waiting patiently for months for another arm, and I intend to grant his wish very shortly.

Lakeshore Arts Festival

Saturday, August 4, 2007

Circus arts, another of my passions. Little sister to my dear friend (pictured), performed a beautiful act on the silk knot and just as well in other acts with the rest of the Teen Ensemble created by the Actors Gymnasium at the Lakeshore Arts Festival today.

The festival itself was far less impressive than the Teen Ensemble performance. A lot of art vendors, a fair number with good works, but very few with terribly great innovation. Nothing jumped out at me and screamed "Take me home!".
