We have an interesting thing with the sun here. It shines a different color every day. No one knows why this is, not even Charley. We grow the watermelons in different colors the best we can.

Some things I saw and drew but didn't share. A friendly dog who wanted to say hello, a bride and a groom on the way to the wedding waiting for the train (she wore plastic slides and had her high heels in the bag), a lost cicada, a book (Sula by Toni Morison was absolutely amazing). Oh and also using dry ice to make dramatic seltzer.
I always start packing by packing my books. For larger ones I love using twine.
Moving soon. So tiring!
The gall of some people, I tell you!!!
For some reason, makes me think of the opening to Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
Nothing to be thoughtful or clever here. Peregrine is peregrine. I just like the sound of it. And the birds themselves too.
Smell my sandwich!
Adore "this song "My bear to cross" by Marvin Pontiac.
It always lifts my spirits.
On the airplane, on my way home, I lifted up my head and there was a Tom Cruise on all the screens. Different movies, or the same movie, but different scenes. Absolutely unreal.

The Costume of the King ( I don't know which king, I couldn't read the plaque) by Leon Bakst was without a person inside. I made him up. So now it is a costume of a dancing King.
One of the great joys of traveling is seeing your friends.

It is such a pretty word, isn't it?
Did NOT make a pretty drawing for it.
Another one of my favorite words. And incidentally, I am so good at drawing dogs. Dismally good.
Kaputnik is a conjunction of the word "kaput" (meaning "broken, damaged, destroyed") and "Sputnik" (Russian robotic spacecraft). Meaning is obvious: something which hasn't come up to expectations.
Suggested by @dimetartemid who disappeared since. Come back!
Rust is a funny word to illustrate. It is so sturdy a word that I had a hard time abstracting from it.
Definitely need to use this word more often. Alas, I don’t have a lot of opportunities to do so.
I love absurdities.
And I do love fish with butts.
Susurration is a favorite word that I share with @ghostkismet and Tiffany Aching.
Just noticed that I misspelled it, but in my defense, I don't think there are enough S's in this word; there should be MORE!
Catty corner or kitty corner or also cater cornered.
Such a weird expression that today I learned is to be identified with obsolete cater “four”, from Middle French quatre.
