im telling myself its too hot to cook.ive heard some people say it and it sounds good to me for now.so dinner time we usually go out.lucky there are some nice places nearby.a little night time bikeride is good too.tonight there was lightning as we rode which was a little exciting scary.
i have conjunctivitis.ive spent today bathing my eye in chamomile.its made it almost better.wonderful plant.
today i bought i huge bag of sunflower seeds we are going to dye some wool.i wanted to collect them from the huge headed flowers that usually grow at the nearby park but they didnt plant them this year.there are some in shibuya, i ll have to go raid them.i just have this sudden urge to dye with plants.i used henna on my hand today but the line was soo thick so i washed it.it still smells good though.
so, my faithful mac is in pieces.after an unsuccessful trip to a fleamarket monday(public holiday) morning, after losing the auction for the below tshirt the night before, i opened the front door to find my computer sitting in a puddle of water as hana had just kicked over a glass whilst attempting to hide from me.tomorrow i have to take it to the genius bar at the mac shop and hopefully its not dead.im thinking it is.i tried to turn it on.when it was still wet.which i read is like throwing a hairdryer in a full bath.not empty bath.now im using one borrowed from my lovely neighbour.he has 5.he loves apple.he went to a steiner school and has feet 30cm long.he is climbing fuji san tonight and live streaming it.
so for now i cant add photos, maybe not for a while... and i have some really good ones to show of a tree house.
finally.ive been shaking my head all day wondering how soulemama finishes sweaters in a week. its taken me god knows how many to finish these.i knit this pattern for hana in orange and purple.i love this pattern.i love making the bobbles.knitting and purling one way, knitting back the other way then slipping the stitches.people who make write knitting patterns fascinate me.
will have to take a photo of the plants before they finish.its been fun to pick them daily.the raspberry and blueberry gave us no fruits.i think my soil has too much compost in it.my sunflowers are about to flower and they are only 40 cm.my dill is struggling.the chocolate cosmos rather than going to seed, looks like the flower heads have melted.
oh well.cant get too attached if i head to australia soon no doubt they will shrivel within a day of my departure.i should bring them all inside and put them in the bath.
that way when koichi showers with cold water he can water them too.
i wore my nearly dead manon van kouswijk necklace today.i love this necklace.all the white stickers are turning varying shades of brown.
i went to an izakaya for dinner and ate finely sliced raw onion dipped in poznu.very bad idea.
i watched kamome shokudo today.havent seen it in ages and loved it all over again.what i was really craving was onigiri.
the next thing i make for hana will be a picture book for the folk tale stone soup.its my favourite story and maybe hers too.i always tell it to her so maybe its better i keep the images really abstract.or maybe i dont need to make it at all.better left for her to imagine..
she loves pop up books or pocket books so maybe i could make something like that.
