Anana is home!!!


There he is, with his beautiful scrapbook, an earwarmer that Audania1 crocheted, a ring made out of a nail (so cool!), some quartz (Audania's very educational note told me all about how quartz is mined with gold!), an arrowhead, and a collection of pressed pennies with a pineapple charm!!! (I love the idea of that... spoiler alert to my next LV partner, I really want to steal that idea!!!)


A close-up of the smaller items so you can get a better look.

Oops, I've been a little quiet lately, but Rosie will be ready to go home tomorrow! I have to run an errand after work today to grab her last souvenir, and finish her scrapbook tonight!

I received from gigglygirl... wow!!!

First we have the three fairy gardens in boxes (I noticed after the photos that a few things seem to have gotten shaken up in the mail so I'm checking everything to make sure it stays put!) :


Outside of #1


Inside of #1


Box #2


Outside of #3


Inside of #3

Then there's also pretty flower magnets (I have a specific place in mind that I hope works for these):



And the extras (notebook, photo holder, scarf!)


Everything is so pretty! I have the late shift at work tomorrow so I'm hoping to do some abandoning in the morning. Fingers crossed for good weather (we still can't tell if we'll get any of Irma's rain here) since my favorite spots will be outside!

How many LVs were in the eclipse path? Rosie and I got to see it at about 88%!



The eclipse glasses weren't a great fit for Rosie...



But a colander makes a great pinhole projector!

Rosie and I have been to two Fathom Events (that company that puts interesting, unique, limited-release things in movie theaters to reach a wider audience, like old movies and operas and anime) in the past five days!

First, a yearly tradition: Drum Corps International ("marching music's major league") prelims on Thursday night:


Then last night, a one-night-only showing of the animated movie Batman and Harley Quinn (this is the trivia before the movie):


We also went to a different park than usual (I've been there before, but not since a Relay for Life in high school or college) and discovered that now they have a beautiful little Japanese garden in honor of the partnership between Virginia Beach and our sister city of Miyazaki, Japan:


On the other end of the garden is a lovely peace monument, which I felt was a very nice thing to discover after what happened elsewhere in our state (I have friends who live in Charlottesville and am happy to report that they're all safe and sound):


There is also a tiny rose garden (the entirety of the garden is in this photo behind Rosie). The rose garden and Japanese garden being right next to each other reminds me of Portland; I love their (enormous) rose garden and (also enormous, compared to this one) Japanese garden! Plus the weather was really wet so it felt like Oregon  Grin

Rosie and I have been a little quiet lately but we made cookies today!



They're s'mores cookies... dark chocolate chip cookies with marshmallows added! (Lesson learned: add the marshmallows on top of each cookie instead of mixing them in, or they'll melt and leak out all over the place and you'll have tiny puddles of caramel on the pan.) But they aren't half bad!

This weekend, our big excitement was a Pokemon Go Catch-a-thon at the Zoo. I scrambled to make an Articuno cosplay in five days and Rosie was a little helper! (Video of her helping me sew on her IG: www.instagram.com/rosiethelv )

Shockingly, I got no photos of her with me in costume but we also made this little bag to stand in for my purse, with the Team Mystic logo on the front:

Rosie and I had a bacon-filled weekend!


This is the bacon stout from Wasserhund (local brewery that makes not only amazing beers but also amazing pizza)... served with a strip of candied bacon!


Then we make maple bacon chocolate cupcakes to take to my friends' Game of Thrones dinner party. (They always make beef and bacon pie for the season premieres, so this time we went all out and had bacon in EVERY dish... including dessert!)

Rosie and I had a very busy weekend with my friend Cassy (who has been in other LV books as well, since she comes down every summer and makes me go to the beach).

We went to the beach, of course...


And the aquarium...


Then Jungle Golf...


And rounded the whole thing off with a trip to Forbes for saltwater taffy!


There was actually even more, including sitting by the pool and hitting up the local Krispy Kreme, so check out her Instagram for more:

Rosie and I went to Awesome Con in DC!


This is the backlot costume contest... we entered the main stage contest (remember the scale Avengers dresses? We entered Captain America, Iron Man (me), and Loki, and won best portrayal in our skill class!!!!!) so I couldn't take photos at that one.

Today, my sketchbook arrived from Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project:

They send you a 5"x7" sketchbook, you fill it up and send it back, and they add it to their library of sketchbooks. Sometimes they send out a certain number of books on a traveling exhibit, so my sketchbook might get to pretend to be an LV at some point! They also track them by barcode and will notify you any time somebody looks at your sketchbook!!!

And of course, more on IG: www.instagram.com/rosiethelv
