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.”

A cloudless morning

Clouds act like a fluffy comforter overnight. A cloudless night means a chilly morning. There's frost on my windshield and thick dew on the grass. British ladies used to rise before dawn on May mornings and roust out all their servants to gather dew from the grass to use for face washing. I winder why May dew was the best? You could certainly take a bath by rolling naked on our lawn with a little soap. It would be colder than a dead eskimo, and the neighbors might complain, but the dew certainly would be fresh.



Is my mind wandering or what?


Have you seen "How to Train Your Dragon" ? If you put wings on this, and a long tail, wouldn't she look like Toothless?



A fun movie with wonderful special effects, great whimsey, and a sweet, though unlikely story. (controling fathers do not, in my experience, ever admit they were wrong.)



How to train your teenager. Now THERE's a fairy tale for you!

    But Roxie, however would you get the soap scum off of your lawn?

    Oh yes, this reminds me of Pattianne Rogers' poem "Rolling Naked in the Morning Dew." If you're not already acquainted with it, check it out: http://arts.envirolink.org/literary_arts/PRogers_Naked.html

    You'll love it, Roxie!

    Cats are easier to train than teenagers!

    It appears she's trained you... Your knitting is her throne.

    For training teenagers, I recommend using car time -the "road trip" thing in short doses. It's one reason I never insisted on D. using public transportation all the time during high school years. You can talk about stuff while both facing forward,"passing the time", that you can't if you're looking at each other, intentionally "having a talk"... even works somewhat on 20-somethings.
    As to cats - well that's why there is the simile "like herding cats".
    Unlike many dogs, cats know you can't see them if they can't see you(kind of like mirrors on trucks). Terriers seem to have figured that one out, though.

    "lentivi" - an ancient Roman legume dish?
