It's so beastly hot outside, and I have PMS, and there is so much work to be done... Instead of whining (which is hard not to do), I thought I'd share some of the little things that are keeping me smiling despite the oppressive North Carolina heat:
> katsi cook speaking at live earth about women's health and the environment. (you will enjoy the irony of the fact that live earth is sponsored by a company that makes gas-guzzling trucks, i think).
> red tomatoes. the heirloom paste tomatoes in our garden are just starting to ripen. i can't wait to start making tomato sauce!
> shari's home-made popsicles (or ice-lollies, if you prefer)
> nichola's new zine, mixtape. it's on paper! real live old-fashioned paper! i can't wait til it comes out in august.
> denise's never-ending parade of beautiful, lovingly-crafted orphan socks. will they ever find their soul mates? oh wait - she finished a pair!
> amisha's travel photos. the doors in particular are my favorites - i love the allure of possibility and new discoveries in a doorway.
SWTC tofutsies, zitron trekking, and zitron lifestyle
> sock yarn. i'm not usually so yarn-spendy, but i can't get enough sock yarn lately. socks are about the only thing i can fathom carrying around with me to knit these days. and despite the fact that it's really not rocket science, i continue to be amazed by the wizardry of self-striping.
...So what's got you smiling?
