MORE TANSY- PERMACULTURE-BIRTHDAYS AND THE SPINNING GROUP- RUG HOOKING

17 09 2012

HELLO,

 

PERMACULTURE

This afternoon I went to pick the last of the Tansy.  Most were already gone by but there were enough left that were still bright yellow and I also picked Sweet Fern.  In Charlemont on top of the mountain where the ski area is , a windmill turns ever so slightly in the breeze.    I believe that we are at a cross-road on this planet, we can continue as we are or take the right road and do more solar and wind and live with permaculture in mind.  There are the people who do not want windmills in their backyard.  I do understand this but I would not mind one bit having a big windmill on top of my mountain.  Yes there is some nose involved .  Having traveled a lot in Ireland where there are many, many windmills it doesn’t seem like an issue for that country at all.   It will become an issue for us as oil and gas prices edge up.  Yesterday I paid almost $4.00 a gallon for gas.   SOmeday the price will go up and stay up and people will have to make decisions then.  Some of us are already making those decisions by thinking before we take each trip with the car.  I do hope we can come together as a country and do the right things for the planet.

 

THE SPINNING GROUP AND BIRTHDAYS

Today the spinning/fiber group met at Ceacy’s.  Her house is located down a windy dirt road with her horses on one side of the road and a huge flock of wild turkey’s on the other.  Nancy greeted me at the door.  Her livingroom was full, people who were knitting, spinning, working on fabric and talking about the weeks events.  Today was Michael’s birthday celebration.    Each birthday is celebrated with gusto.  A birthday cake with candles and presents are for the delight of the birthday person.  Each gift given is with great thought to what the person might wish for.  As one grows older it seems that birthdays become less important, but in reality we all long for the birthday cake and that special gift.  The gift doesn’t have to cost money just something special.  We all enjoyed the cake and celebration.

 

RUG HOOKING PROJECTS

I really like the greens much better than the purple pinks.   It seems to add that primitive piece to the rug.  I hope to have room for my frame  in the car so that I can hook at the show.
