Be prepared

I like ceramic tiles. If I could, I would have, say, a backsplash in my kitchen of plain (neutral) tiles punctuated with just one image that made me happy. Meanwhile I have to content myself with "faux" tiles...

The cooler weather, although unusual for the last few days of August, has been a boon for walks and outdoor cafés. There seems to be an infestation of bees -- or are they wasps? I can't tell; we had to fend them off at the café yesterday and I've noticed they're flitting around my balcony.
Someone told me the other day that the Farmer's Almanac is forecasting a very cold winter and that he was planning to move to B.C. for the winter. No such luxury for me, I said, so I'd better buy some more thick socks and send in my order for hot chocolate. Meanwhile, I'll take it one day at a time, cross my bridges when I come to them, all the while being prepared.

  3. They are wasps; it's my understanding that it's a city wide problem. Apparently the excess garbage caused them to breed way more than normal. I actually couldn't eat my lunch outside a couple of days ago; they chased me inside. I was being swarmed. We've had wasps in the backyard before of course, but this is the worst I recall.

  4. be careful if they are wasps.. if they look like bees, then they could be that European wasp, not sure if you have those there.
    by the way ~ I have one of your little hearts near my bed at the moment, the one marked Fragile xo

  6. do you have a ceramics class nearby? you could make your beautiful tiles come true. if not a whole back splash then a few trivets for hot pots. :0)i was just looking at the ceramics classes at my local fine art center. there's a portrait sculpture class i am strongly considering. it sounds like a dream come true for me.
