Life Goes Open

Today The Enderby Arts Council is putting on an Arts Festival. I hope I get some good photo's for the blog. They will be closing off the streets, I love festivals with street closures.

On July 20TH Steve and our neighbor's Pat and Jeannette and I drove out to the Caravan Farm for an evening of outdoor Theater. Very well done, Most of the costumes were good but a few were rather odd. The first challenge was who's car to go in. Since Pat's wheel chair didn't fit in any of our cars Pat drove us all in her van.
The first stage was a walk up a steep hill at the Gazebo stage. Pat was shuttled to the sight. The audience surrounded the gazebo stage for the first 15 minutes of the play and then we all walked down a wood chip path to the forest stage.  The forest stage was just that a forest of great depth and enchantment with lots of hiding places, raven puppets, sounds of the forest and moving plants. People at the top of the bleachers had the best view. We all enjoyed the evening from the start, with it's scenic drive through the back roads, to the funny antics of modern day players of an old Play "A Midsummer Night's Dream". With all the rain we have been having we were lucky it didn't start to rain till we were all heading back to out cars. Check out the web sight for Caravan Farm Theater and Farmers Market.

Yesterday I helped out at the Gypsy Bazaar all day. I finally got new business cards, I don't really have a business so maybe I should call them my information cards. I replaced all the old white outed and pen printed phone numbered cards with the new ones( I use the cards on my garments as sale tags). I vacuumed and changed the window display, helped customers. It looks good and just about ready for the Art Show, Uh ready or not....

Part of last nights dinner

the flower head of a garlic, they had to sit on the porch the pungent aroma of the garlic was a bit much on the kitchen table

Yet another project that has been hard to get to due to rain, etc, the fence is now clean and patched ready to paint.
Steve had to do the shopping at the Farmers market since I was working, he picked up some lovely carrots, zucchini and beans. I made a quick dinner of carrots and beans topped with earth balance and blue corn chips topped with green olives stuffed with garlic, hemp seeds, red onion tops and Daiya no soy, no dairy cheese. YUMMMMM....
