stiff dyed vellum cover, laced in text block sewn on vellum tapesthe pages for august were made exactly one year ago, i made a page each day. looking through the book i see my thinking from the year before, stuff much on my mind in august. before going back to teach another school year. coyotes, dyes, flax, landscape, paper, shifu, tess, and a small gathering of much loved humans.
a friend valerie sparked a renewed local interest in hula hooping. she is amazing, here in the park during farmer's market, teaching a small group of enthusiastic hoopers. hoopists? i caught the end of the mini workshop, but i did see her with three hoops, all rotating.this young lady is my friend's pup tess. she was with me for ten of the august days last year as a ten week old. it was NOT fun! she was very needy then. she's beautiful and has eyes only for him, though she likes everyone else with a breezy, have fun attitude.
tess and the gwen. when these two visit, they bring along lena, a dobie. wendy deeply disapproves of them all, but mostly tess. these two are very cuddly.
