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 little of this, a little of that . . .

 We saw "Guardians of the Galaxy"  It's a summer movie for kids based on a comic book.  I loved it!


We had a tea party in the backyard.  I used a bit of lace for a bug baffle.  Shades of "Great Expectations."

Our outdoor room in the backyard is great for entertaining.  However, in the morning, there are sometimes spots of sunshine that filter through, and on a hot day,
 we have to find solutions.Maggie and Pat looking elegant under their sun shade.


The next day, Kyle and I got up bright and early and made our way to the Portland Bridge Peddle.
We did the  walking portion - a mere 6.5 miles with a climb equal to twelve flights of stairs.  It was awesome.  And on the top of that climb, there were Taiko drummers, stirring the blood and cheering us on.








On the way back to the car, I stopped to snap a picture of the world's smallest park. (Keep Portland weird.) it's 24 inches in diameter, and the city actually does maintain it.

    A Great Expectations party....hmmm.
    Everyone in tattered wedding dresses, crazy wild hair, tattered veils,...wedding cake a bit tipsy, old "cobwebbed" chandeliers & candlesticks, dried up bouquets, "broken heart" cookies, ,,,could be interesting.

    What a beautifully maintained park! I really enjoy eating in the yard but the mosquitos have been particularly ferocious lately. Lots of rain will do that. (or tomatoes are splitting through their skins!)

    The garden party sounds like fun! As for the park, I didn't know people were so much smaller there; do you know we all need a two foot space to occupy or we feel crowded!? That park is just right for a crowd of one!

    You should combine all your interests and have a Great Expectations knitting party at the tiny park!
