Flowers for Justin*
Shel and I cut an acre of crisp crepe paper grass for the set after lunch. Later, I thought Shel might like to try to make some bright flowers with the new doublette (2-color double-sided) crepe paper I just bought from Castle in The Air (owned by reader Karima!) She made truly lovely blooms (seen in the top photos) for the macro garden in Halfland and even showed Aedon how to do it too.
As always I found them both so easy to be with, great to share with, inspiring to be around. But wait there's more...
In a fantastical instance of Life Imitating Art, as they were leaving Shel and Aedon rescued a very lost, skinny, hungry, desperate little puppy on our street. I was sad to see it looking for Cirelle, whom it had met the night before in our parking lot. But I was just going to once again shake my head in sadness and go on with my life. Not our Superhero Shel! Once we saw the little guy holding his paw up on the corner hoping each passerby would care for him, Shel called for him and as he cheerfully ran to her she leapt out of her van (!), assessed he was safe to interact with, told Aedon they would bathe and feed him but that he was not theirs to keep--got the agreement, gathered him under her caring arm and was off with him is under 23 seconds! Swoop! It's a wonder her cape doesn't get caught in the car doors!
CIRELLE! Hopefully more photos to come soon>>>>
UPDATE::::: He is a fantastic dog! So adorable. Here are photos taken at his home after he'd settled in to his new happy forever love home with Cirelle....
Thanks for being our Hero Shel.
