This is Happening --- Soon + More

Popping in today to share a bit of what I have been working on this week..... Getting my garden planted -- it is half in. I call it insta-gardening. I purchase seedlings and plop them in. If all goes well, they grow. We had a massive thunderstorm on Monday night and lost power overnight but the good result was that the seedlings got watered by Mother Nature. Thank you! Now I have to tackle the sunflower seeds. I will do a few rows each day. Then to the mulching.

The other thing I have been working on this week - and thinking a lot about - is this. 

What you say? Next Wednesday at 11 a.m. I am giving a Talk at Google on color and pattern and hand-making at the Cambridge offices of Google. Been working on it this week developing a PowerPoint presentation. (I will say I am so not a fan of PowerPoint. So clunky.) I don't know what to expect but am being optimistic that I can share my love of color and pattern with whoever it is shows up to listen. I think it may be videotaped so there is a chance it could be on their Talks at Google channel. You can check out all the interesting Talks at Google here

I'm putting this out there today in case any of you have friends who work at Google/Cambridge, MA who might be interested. Spread the word. Thanks!

We have a new litter of kittens. Here they are napping this morning after a good romp. Two on the left are spoken for but the middle one - a fluffy gray tabby with white feet is available. (They were all spoken for but someone just backed out.)

And if you haven't seen this yet - watch. 23 minutes of pure fun.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Thanks for that video Kristin.
First time since the migrant crisis began that I've smiled.

GOOGLE, eh? *SWEET*!, if you could just get the sheep to position themselves in the field to spell google as the GOOGLE-EARTH satellite orbits by... Or, just fake it on one of your presentation "slides"..? ;->
whatever. GOOD LUCK with the probable "LOGAN'S RUN" aged audience! Hopefully, they can learn something that doesn't rely on batteries or WiFi!

BTW, loving that blue fabric under the kittens...

That's awesome about Google! I look forward to hearing about it. And I just watched your Houzz video and enjoyed it so much. Thanks, Kristin!
