Knit Note Cards

I donated some sock yarn to Major Knitter's March Madness Project, and as a thank you, she sent me two notecards made with my yarn.
They're so nice; I don't think I can bring myself to use them! Keep watching her blog for information on purchasing these notecards. The proceeds go to charity.

Scottish Highland Day

Last weekend, we attended the Scottish Festival and Highland Games. We saw the Caber Toss,

sheep herding,

and a dog parade.




While the kids enjoyed seeing the dogs, they liked the face painting and sheep more.

Wings, Warts, and Wonder

The kids and I spent the day in the new children's garden at the Botanical Gardens.

The butterfly habitat is amazing. Here's the view from the top of the waterfall.

It has fish, quail, frogs, a snake, and, of course, butterflies.
They'll be adding hummingbirds, turtles, and a bee habitat.

And that's just the inside part. Outside, there are lots of little gardens. In the dinosaur garden, there's a sand pit where kids dig for "fossils". There's A Half Acre Woods where kids can play Pooh sticks on the Burro Bridge.
See the Eeyore tail?

In the Fairytale/ Storybook Garden, there's a troll bridge, a wishing well (complete with a frog prince), a gnome house, toadstool seats, and a fairy gate.

There's also a maze, a rainbow garden (with bubbles and prisms), and a space garden.
After playing hard outside, there's nothing like ice cream from the gift shop to cool you off.

I finished CK #8 tonight while watching Batman Begins, and I have to say that Christian Bale is my favorite Batman. (This spot was previously held by Michael Keaton.) Val Kilmer was too moody of a Bruce Wayne, and George Clooney wasn't a dark enough Batman. Who's your favorite Caped Crusader?

A Blue Pic for June

Here's the best platter I've made so far.
I haven't been throwing much lately, hence the lack of pottery pictures. I'm hoping to get some time in next month after things have settled down a bit.
