perfect day

Beautiful beautiful day. This is where Opal gets to spend her horse time. It’s quite a menagerie over at Joan and Vicki’s.

These beasts have very very good lives.

Some links that have been moving me:
I want this wooden bento box. And this book on making old fashion root beer and ginger ales.
Recently added to the links list is Kiliii Dreaming. Nature photography for the most part. Here is a great picture of turkey vultures. They are among my favorite birds. Kiliii’s site came to my attention after he built a driftwood kayak with Mark’s friend Brian of Cape Falcon Kayak.

The recent disappearance of the honeybees has been really hard on me. I will need to make a post just about my thoughts about this. There are many.

You know I like to keep you abreast of Opal’s musical preferences. They are so varied! In current hot hot rotation are Kraftwerk’s Trans-Europe Express, an Old school hip hop mix tape that I have been dragging around for 18 years (Siberian Nights!), and Nightmares on Wax‘s DJ Kicks. Gotta love it, especially as it is playing all day. Poor Alice. She likes the dulcimer.

Opal says, “Records are like big, lo-tech cds.  They got the grooves and stuff.  They got the grooooooves.”
