Today-not so much stuff. Since I'll be leaving mid-week, we didn't need the usual big haul but we made a few choice selections.
Apples- a Golden Delicious, Nitany, Jonagold, a few Gala, and some Fugi. Ah, my mouth is watering just thinking of their juicy goodness.
Tomatoes-some heirloom cherry and two yellow for a delicious pasta Pomodoro that was tonight's dinner. Yum.
Some sunflowers, of course, that I hope will survive until I get back.
And that was about it.

I missed out on a great item at the yard sale across the street looking further before claiming it but at the time we were the only ones there, I turned around and MY swinging antique mirror dresser topper was in someone else's hand. Shoot. And it was only 5 bucks. Oh, well- moving on before I cry.
I am behind on a round robin. I wanted to use my new Inkadyes for it-it is a prayer flag. But we have been plagued by cloudy weather any time I had a free moment and so I was going to keep my flag to await sun and mail the rest on to the next player, but I didn't get to the post office and today was sunny sooooo I made my flag!
I started out by cutting a peace sign out of sticker paper colored black to block sunlight. I painted the flag with Yellow Green and Blue Inkodyes in a sort of starburst that came out more like an "X". The dyes are semi-clear with just a hint of color. They can be thinned with clear dye or water. I used a bit of both. This is the flag painted.
And headed outside to the little bit of sun remaining in my shady-in-the-afternoon backyard.
This was how it look in about 30 seconds, I was a little worried, not the colors I was looking for.
Looking better- can you tell it was sitting on an azalea?
Finis! and About to remove the sticker.
I immediately rinsed the flag and hand washed with soap and dried.
There was still a little bleed-through to the white area but overall I'm really happy.
Here is the finished flag. I used a micron pen to write the chorus of John Lennon's "Imagine" around the symbol.
Simple but effective. I think I like it and it will send a good vibe into the universe when she flies it.
