...and I was thought by the land to think right for myself
Happy Wednesday! Have I told you lately that I love my sister, Mali? Well it bears repeating, because she's the best! Not only is she the most generous, sweetest person ever, letting C., Kissa and I stay with her while our house is getting de-molded (uuum...I'm pretty sure that's a word blogger, you bastard. No? Really?), she's the best pal, a great cook, lends me her computer so that I can post pictures of her, and lends her amazing illustration skills (you may remember the Kidlet studying something in Canada...) to the little "free school" my friend Callie, her, C. and I started.
No really, the Kidlet makes work fun and, as evidenced by the poster below, beautiful too.
That's right! We're keeping a bit busy. It's only packing all of my belongings, preparing for the class, facilitating and organizing other classes, taking classes (Permaculture! Native Ecology! Plant Genetics! Oh my...) learning to milk goats, harvesting nettles and the cow milking season is starting next week. So you know. It's a good thing I have the Kidlet.
If you observe the awesome poster Mali's mock examining, we're running a Appalachian String Band Class, though by my dear milk maid accomplice Heather, in cahoots with some other talented musicians. I wish I wish I could teleport Amber and her fiddle and prairie frocks here for that shindig.
It is almost, kinda, sort of spring here. Sunny one moment, pouring down spring rain the next, but luckily the moment Smocktop (No really, blogger, it's a proper noun, or something like it!) snapped these shots of my outfit the sun came out, beautifully. With your generous encouragement and Smocktop's computer, I hope to post some more outfits. I've been having such fun with clothes lately, packing up and discovering all of my long lost treasures.
(I'll even post outift details, can you believe it?!?)
Top-Barter Fair (traded about a bag of nettles for it;)
faux suede skirt-The Dump, altered by me. (This was on my I want that damn it list for a loong time. Yayya for The Dump!)
Vest-the lovely, generous Brigit (who also cut her bangs recently-check out my mullet top Brigit)
Feather necklace-by the amazing and talented Nicole
In addition to all of our other adventures (and there are more to come!), Kidlet, C. and I are going to see this miraculous band in Seatown next month, and boy are we excited! As soon as I heard that their new album The Clearing was coming out, I got us tickets to the show. It's a family tradition, after all. Seatown hipsters-watch out! We'll make you dance!
That's all for now folks, I'll be back, possibly with some environmental infomercials, maybe an epic California post and definitely some more pictures of little old Moleskin.
Confused by the number of nicknames the girl's got? Don't be. In Finnish we have a saying that "a beloved child has many names" and boy, is she beloved. Smocktop, Kidlet, Moleskin, Ruu, Mole, Il Mole, Molestar, Ruuruu...
