How humid is it?

Well yesterday the sun came out for a while.  And so did I.  It's been hard to be outside.  I spent a little while preparing the base circles for the round wood stacking.   But I left the wood covered because they predicted storm overnight and into the morning.

I went to check the feeders.  This humid.

environment for growth

I need to make a shopping list.

I woke up to violent thunderstorms.  5 AM.  Raining so hard I can't even find words for it.

Some stormy wishing, coffee...

Still raining.  Soul-o hiding under my chair. This is market morning but I am not driving in this.

anything could happen.

And just some building exercises because there are always puzzle pieces here.  I see everything as a puzzle piece these days.  Loose is good.  I have been doing this a lot   Looking at drawn thoughts and stitched thoughts together.  Mixing it up, letting them touch,  influence each other.  Each medium allows different ways of expression.   This kind of thing expands my image building possibilities.  Every small connection  brings storyCloth could become paper, paper could become cloth.  Old stories combine, become new. Sometimes just for looking. Sometimes it sticks.

I have to admit there is a lot more looking than sticking.   But the looking is always there in the thoughts that spring forth and take form.

Here, some old dot,   some old doodle.  A few loose patches.  Thought taking form.

    Bonjour, je suis curieuse, pour quel type d’oiseau mettez vous des graines germées ? Est ce que les oiseaux en France aimeraient ? Merci

  2. It’s been a weird year for humidity, in your neck of the woods and in mine. I’m glad that things have survived as well as they have. Weaving is a great way through it.

    I need to start playing with my scraps this way. Loving your puzzle pieces. We got a sprinkling of rain for the first time in more than 2 months this morning. Everything is dead. There is no green grass for miles around. Only the weeds manage to grow in over 100 degree weather without rain.

    Puzzles are so fun!
    Excavating, discovering, connecting , fitting, slowing, patience, revealing, making visible, the hidden story.
