Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Greens are good for you

this post is for you suffering souls in the bad weather who have yet to savor spring. A few green photos from the Japanese Gardens. If you come to visit, I'll take you there and we can be quiet together for a while. Very soothing to the spirits. Wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, a wool sweater, and a hat.














I offer verdant views because I don't have any knitting worthy of showing. I'm working on it, but not much to show. I tried to knit while at the dentist's, yesterday, but I had size one needles and fingering yarn, and I couldn't feel my stitches with enough confidence to carry on while I was being distracted by pointy steel objects being repeatedly jabbed into my tender gums. Now my teeth are squeeky clean and the dentist can't find anything to justify further torture for at least another six months. Yayyy!


And my knitting time was curtailed last night because DH and I went to our weekly dance class. We have taken the same class five or six times, and we are getting pretty good. The teacher has decided to throw in dances we don't know to keep us fresh. I'm fresh. Really I am. You don't need to confuse me just when I'm starting to get a few things.

Now, here's where I get to brag. Amy Lynn http://writerslane.blogspot.com/ tagged me as a Thinking Blogger. Shazam! So I have to pass it along and suggest more thinking bloggers. I suggest Yarnstorm http://yarnstorm.blogs.com/for her absolutely fabulous photos, Dave Daniels Cabin Cove for his great photos (with Miss Lulu, the beauty cat)Lucia http://rhymeswithfuschia.blogspot.com/ for her scintilating wit, Norma http://nownormaknits2.typepad.com/for her many charitable works (like the Red Scarf Project. they brought in over fifteen thousand red scarves for Valentine gifts for young people who don't have families to cheer them along.) and Grandma Flea http://fleabites.blogspot.com/ because she has wonderful pictures of life in australia, and they make me think happy thoughts about going there in the future.

So here are the rules for you thinking bloggers:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme http://www.thethinkingblog.com/2007/02/thinking-blogger-awards_11.html

    Those gardens are lovely. I would love to go walking there.

    Spring just started today, and I'm miserable with allergies. It's so nice to look at something that won't make me sneeze.

    Oooh - thank you Roxie - I feel very privileged to be tagged as a "thinking blogger". I'll really have to think now, to come up with my five favourite thinkers. I love the photos - please take me there when I visit the US - and I'll take you places when you visit here again! Sadly, unless you visit VERY soon, we'll be in our new townhouse with a pocket handerkerchief garden and no ECHIDNA! or possums. Maybe we'll be able to encourage the local bird life to visit.

    Your photos of all that luscious green are lovely. We had a hard freeze about two weeks ago and the foliage has not recovered. I'm glad I took all those photos of our redbuds.
