Friday just happened to be student day, but Friday was the only day we could both go. On student day, they don't serve beer -- and there are so many darned kids. Needless to say, it wasn't as fun as last year. But we made the most of it.
We saw a King,
And a Queen,
And the gayest pirate ever!
Too much sun and not enough beer made me a little silly by the end of the day. Here I am impersonating Tyra when she showed the girls how to use pain as inspiration when they draw a blank. Oh, I'm having cramps!
Tony got a bit silly too.
In gardening news: we've started harvesting radishes.
Tony propagated a new staghorn fern from his enormous one in the house. We mounted it to a piece of bark (with good ol' lace weight wool) and hung it in a tree. It shifted around a bit, but it'll fill in.
Lastly, we have a new pet. I was walking through the back yard today and I saw something scurry down a hole. I watched it for a bit and discovered that an Oklahoma Brown Tarantula has moved in. I gave it a bit of wood over its hole for protection and to remind us it lives there.
Boo! S/he's scary! Their venom is less poisonous than a bee sting. They are supposed to be very docile. So it can stay.
In knitting news: I'm working on a baby surprise jacket. Wheee! Hopefully I'll have more knitting content soon.
