check it out-the crocker let me steal this ansel adams photo! too cool.
there was also a show of betye saar-she does collage and installation-type work-i think that's what you call it. i'm no art expert. her stuff was intense-dealing with the african american experience.
well, there happened to be a wedding reception happening at the museum and i'd had just about enough of that crowd. so-off we went to brew pub #2. the rubicon. They serve a mean i.p.a.-so full of hop flavor i wanted to break out into song and dance. but the waitresses looked like they had had quite enough of this type of behavior so i restrained myself and ordered fish tacos instead.-obviously a sign of my recent maturity. the rubi has the best fish tacos-no deep fried drippy taco mess here.-yum wish i had some now.( I better rap this up soon-little son is having math issues-pencils are flying, heavy sighing-even some growls-but he tells me he doesn't want any help.) after the rubicon we headed back home up into the hills-while leaving the city we saw the most beautiful pink full moon rise. a nice ending to our date.
sunday was spent doing outdoor chores as the weather was awesome. my salad bed survived-that old dollar store shower curtain really did the trick-we just threw it over the little lettucelings and they survived freezing temps and 2 snow dumps-we ate our first harvest last night with dinner. nothing like homegrown! i even saw the tiny sproutlings of the beets and radishes i planted a couple of weeks ago. amazing creatures.
not much fibering-i do have a new blue-faced leicester(wow-i can spell it from memory now) roving up on my etsy store. it's a full 10 oz. so one can spin for a bigger project.
