Ang, Jack, Kate, and I went to Tahoe yesterday afternoon. While the kids frolicked in the surf, And taught me some tips about working the D90 in manual. I learned a lot and already feel so much more confident yet grasshopper-like.
Yes, I was busy today! I captured sun light and put it in a jar. Actually, they are made from those little $3 solar walkway lights. The solar panel charges during the day, and when it gets too dark, then it uses the energy to light a little bulb.
Normally each one would be like $40, but with this how-to they ended up being about $10 each.
My mint plant is quickly outgrowing its pot, so I went looking for a larger pot. They are expensive! Plus, overly fancy, I like the plant to be the most eye-catching. I've always loved the classic terra cotta pots; they make me think of my bunny Potsie (named for her love of them). But, I can't leave well enough alone, so I decided to add a little trim. We have two copies of A Sand County Almanac (doesn't every naturalist?), so I used one to decorate the pot. Once Adam gets back, he'll transplant the mint, and I'll post the result!
This design is brilliant and the how-to is HERE. When I have bagged tea, it always gets lost at school. If we have our own spaces next year at work, I may try to use this for both decor and psychological calming.
