I made a mini duck balloon for Flobot. They became fast friends.

Anana went with my book club to the Michigan Renaissance Festival today! (Fun fact: we were having so much fun, we forgot to discuss the book! Oops!) I brought my hubby & baby along as well!



He checked out the weapons, but I said we shouldn't buy any - too hard to ship home!



We also watched a glassblowing demonstration!



Edited to add: sorry for the technical difficulties! I'll try again on the computer later

Stella and I made an unexpected friend this morning:


sometimes those are the best kind of friends!

That guy (gal?) is pretty cool. I don't think I have ever seen a praying mantis that color before.


Me neither! And I don't see them often in the first place. I thought he might have been dead because he was so brown and dry, but when I started driving, he crawled across the windshield in protest.

per Wikipedia- it is young and still molting. eventually he will turn dark green. so fascinating!

This is actually from last week but I forgot to post it. Stella looking fabulous as a model for the mask we were testing for a costume program for the public library. (She'll be on her way home before the program but she's a good little helper anyway.)

I am woefully, embarrassingly behind in sharing Felicity's adventures but am going to try to post something as daily as possible from now until she arrives home to catch up.

And Ill start with our most recent activity first: a visit to Olvera Street, one of the oldest streets in Los Angeles, and for decades both a tourist attraction and a shopping destination for locals looking to get Mexican-made items from clothing to ceramics to souvenirs and more.



Olvera Street is one long block, down the center of which are stalls selling all kinds of smallish things like mini guitars, plastic accordions, backpacks, serapes and huaraches, little toys and games, candies and snacks...your basic variety of chucherias (aka tchatchkes), while on either side of the street there are one- and two-story buildings that house stores selling more substantial goods (along with chucherias) and eateries.  Felicity got a new sombrero for the occasion and fit right in with the festive atmosphere:



One of the buildings on Olvera Street is the Avila Adobe, the oldest existing house in Los Angeles:



Built about 200 years ago, it was badly damaged during a severe earthquake in 1971, but has since been fully restored and furnished as it might have been in its earliest days.

Here's the parlor...



...and the kitchen...



The building surrounds a central courtyard, on one side of which is an outdoor kitchen



with an overhanging grapevine trellis in full fruiting bearing bunches of tiny grapes.

Stella is pretty good at bar trivia... my book club met at a brewery this month and it happened to be on trivia night. We were in first place after halftime but then we blew it.



Here's one question we got right: Which famous fast food chain was founded during the Great Depression?

Check out Stella's blog for the answer (and more fun facts we learned along the way): http://stellainvb.blogspot.com/2016/09/bar-trivia.html

I've been horrible about posting pictures, my phone is just annoying, and I am running out of patience for technology in my life that's not working (oh, goodness, poor Violet has gotten an earful about my technology woes lately!).  I tried to start on the scrapbook today and just... couldn't.  I will get it done in time, though, and I think I have all her stuff corralled...
