It's beastly hot out, and will be hotter tomorrow.

On the other hand, here is something awesome, a movie-style trailer for Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice, made by a very talented fan called bironic. Link to Ann Leckie's blog post with the video. If you can, watch with sound on; the music is perfect, too.

There are so many photos, I decided to break this into two parts. So herewith, Part 1: Ta dah )

I've been trying to do creative things again, if possible things that work up fairly quickly. Here's the one I perpetrated this week: Dandelion clock )

So, I finished another thing. You know how you aren't supposed to iron velvet because the iron leaves a shiny mark? Well, some years back, someone decided to do it on purpose. With a rubber stamp. see more here )

We have another clutch of hummy eggs to watch, this time on the south side of the house.

I finally got to and finished this class. As usual, my taste and Sondra's are not always exactly in accord, but that's part of the fun. So here are the results. Lots of photos )

The baby hummies have both left the nest. Here are the last few of Emily's blog entries documenting their progress:

Big Babies

On Edge

Liftoff

And on the other side of the house, it begins anew:

I am stressed beyond the telling of it, so - I'm going to post some photos from a few days ago. One afternoon, Emily spotted a red-shouldered hawk, hanging out on a telephone pole just across the street. I took a few photos. Who's a pretty birdie, then? )

I finished the last bits of gluing yesterday. Yay. Kitty fell in love with one of them, so I handed them out around the family last night. That still leaves seven, which I photographed this morning. Behold )

Paul is out on the front porch, preparing for the annual influx of small visitors. The pumpkins are carved, I successfully repaired a large fake candle that flickers and makes weird noises, and Kitty's lent us hers, so it's sounding eldrich out there. The cauldron is filled with treats and waiting just inside the door. Paul even got out my Dia de los Muertos decorations and hung them.

While we wait for dark, in honor of today's festive holiday, an appropriate poem. It's also the one my parents gave me when I was ordered to memorize and recite one, back in elementary school. I can still recite it, and have, back when the Daughters were young enough to appreciate such things. So, without further ado, enter at your peril )

People who are owned by cats, do you find that longer-haired cats have rougher tongues? Shadow is shorthaired, Patches is fluffy Angora longhaired, and I think Patches' tongue is much rougher.
