It's Monday morning, three days after planting our poor wilted tree, and look at it now. I'm confident it will thrive. The root ball was dry when Tom pulled it out. We soaked the basin, including some smelly fermented fish stuff in the bath. What made the tree happy wasn't anything we did. We have had an abnormal spell of afternoon thunderstorms and soaking rains for two days and predicted for two more. The timing is perfect. These are our April showers - in June.
I'm very pleased with the first fingerless glove, which now that I think about it, appears more like a gauntlet. I sent a picture by phone to DD Chrissie and she is thrilled. I'm a little concerned about getting the second one to look close enough to be an actual pair. This is Noro yarn, and the color runs are so long that finding a place to start the second glove was, well, interesting. Chrissie asked if maybe I could make her a flap cap to match. I need to get back to Jimmy Beans to see if there's another skein on this color left. It was on sale, so I'm not optimistic but it really would be fun to make. The other thing is that it's kinda scratchy and might not feel as nice as it looks.
About a month ago Chrissie started talking on Facebook about needing a Three Woof Moon t-shirt, available at Amazon, which you can see here. At that time there were about 300 hundred comments. Ian thought it was so funny that he ordered one for her. The t-shirt is up to over 900 comments and has made broadcast news and now there's a YouTube video, a parody of "Colors of the Wind" from Disneys' Pocahontas which you can see here. It brings me back to the question of meme and social networking. I read that virulogists are actually looking at us learn more about how viruses spread.
