Some Fun on Friday

Hot, humid days have made us hope for rain.  The rain fell on either side of us, but no rain here on the dusty dirt road.  Just enough thunder to make the dog retreat to the safety of the bathroom.  (Who thought the bathroom would be a safe place?)  I wish I could explain to Pono that thunder is not going to hurt.  I've tried.  He just curls into a little ball and shivers.  I am grateful for Rescue Remedy.  A little bit of that on a treat does seem to calm Pono down.  He's been afraid of thunder and other loud noises (fireworks, gunshots, bombing at the Marine Base in 29 Palms, etc.) ever since he was a puppy. 

I have been stretching linen this week, and I will have some photos to show you of the process next week.  But today is my birthday, so I only want to have a fun post.  Therefore, you get to see Pono and the hula hoop.  (for those of you who missed something similar on facebook.)

I am developing my technique for shooting a video WHILE hula hooping.  Multi-tasking at its finest.
One more.

Have a fantastic weekend, dear blog readers!

As far as rain goes...well did we ever have "pono" frightening storms here last night...he would have been stuck in the bathroom for HOURS!!!! We needed it though...the gardens were dry.

Happy belated birthday! I hope you had some cake to celebrate. Pono doesn't look too impressed by your hula hoop, but I'm impressed that you can videotape and hula hoop at the same time.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about stretching linen. I've become enamoured with linen yarn and have made a bunch of shawls.

Have a good weekend.

I've never heard of Rescue Remedy. Next year I'll try that for Belle. She hates all the loud noises on the 4th and New Year's Eve.

Pono's very patient watching you. He has a good life.
