Tarot of the Cat People:

You are Strength

Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.

This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

The first tomato of the season

This is an old photo, I just wanted to remember these. They are sooooo good! And we ate probably the last of them last night in a tomato/mozzarella salad.


I knitting news: I have finished the knitting portion of Suzy and now need to seam her up. This is yarn I purchased at last year's Stitches East - and I want to wear it to this year's event. It's Araucania Limari, a squishy soft merino, alpaca, silk blend. No photos yet.

I've also finished the back of Amherst. I am really liking the Katia Twist. It IS splitty, but makes a bouncey soft fabric. Now to decide if I want to put the ginormous buttons on it, or use a clasp type of fastener. I have found an interesting button, the trick will be to find it in a store.

And a sweet kitty face:


Doesn't he look content?

Things are getting done…

28Thirty is finished. It blocked nicely and now needs it's buttons sewn on. Maybe I'll do that during tomorrow night's debate.



VCU Hat is finished, and another has been started… and almost finished… in reverse colors. I really like this Ribbed Hat pattern. It's fast and fits well for a wide variety of head sizes.


And I finished yet another Seagull Century ride. This time the weather was spectacular! There must have been a bajillion riders! I felt great! These were taken at the finish. Don'tcha just love the do-rag? I had serious "helmet hair".
