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.”

Join me for lunch?

Usually, on Wednesdays, I take GED to the jail, then I spend a couple hours on the computer at work with a long-term project, then head up to my writer's group. Today, however, there was no computer available to me, and well, gee, maybe I could have managed to do the work somewhere else, but it was such an incredibly beautiful day . . .I asked the boss if she would mind and she very, very kindly let me be a feckless adolescent and go outside to play. So I got to spend two hours down by the pond. See the bench in the middle of the photo, there? The pond is just beyond it. It's a dinky little puddle - about the length of a kingsize bed, about as wide as a twin bed, and about as deep as a cheap wading pool. Oh, it's green and warm and shady and rich with life! I ate fresh sweet ripe strawberries with yogurt, and I drank in the peace.

This is the view from the other end of the bench. Would you rather eat in front of a computer, or here? A LBB (Little Brown Bird) shared the area with me, hopping through the foliage and rustling up a good meal of bugs.


After lunch I finished another beaded neckpiece. These suckers are addictive! The beads flash real purty in the sunshine.

    That IS a lovely place for lunch--and I'm sure the LBB was superb company!

    My favorite kind of business lunch.

    I usually end up eating at my desk. Expedient but not inspiring. The red beaded piece is very old fashioned looking and quite lovely. And I can't believe you asked that man if you could take a photo of his buns! You cheeky monkey!
