California Trip - Qualified Perceptions
California Trip
harrock and I are in California for the week, for a family... well, not a family emergency, just a family inconvenience, with my brother-in-law on a month-long business trip (ugh!) at the same time as a two-week spring break from day care. So we're doing the aunt and uncle thing and wondering how people have the energy to take care of little kids ALL THE TIME. In keeping with my new resolution to try to visit even without a disaster at the airport causing it, we met countertorque, izmirian, merastra, and ricedog for dinner in San Francisco (a point midway between us coming from Sebastopol and them coming from more southerly areas). Jerry is still the favorite person for giving out ticklings, while I am apparently mesmerizing with yarn; before leaving, Dave (this is the brother-in-law Dave, not the ones from dinner) made a knitting spool for me to demonstrate with, but Amelia decided after some experimentation that it was too hard, and she would learn when she was five. It's good to have a timetable.

I've been experimenting with twe's old camera and the much-coveted Macro Mode, which proved just the thing for taking pictures of a bunch of pebble-capped towers of dirt, created by the recent rains. And, just for good measure, niece cuteness.

I like the pebble pictures!

That was fun *and* delicious! :-)

The pebbles look like miniature castles. They need miniature creatures flitting about them. Zooom! ;-)

Now that I've gotten sidetracked onto the infnite cat project...

Was the purpose of moving the circular object up higher to cover the unpainted area? Or is it aesthetically more pleasing higher up?

Oh, and the answer is we slowly go insane. Or not so slowly in some cases.

When the hex is too low, it blocks the door. (Well, I guess it's attached to the door, so it moves when the door opens, judging from a different picture).
