Cuddle Party

Everyone needs contact comfort sometimes.  Not everyone has ample opportunities for this in facetime.  So here is a chance for a cuddle party in cyberspace.  Virtual cuddling can help people feel better.

We have a
cuddle room that comes with fort cushions, fort frames, sheets for draping, and a weighted blanket.  It has a basket of grooming brushes, hairbrushes, and styling combs.  A bin holds textured pillows. There is a big basket of craft supplies along with art markers, coloring pages, and blank paper.  The kitchen has a popcorn machine. Labels are available to mark dietary needs, recipe ingredients, and level of spiciness. Here is the bathroom, open to everyone.  There is a lawn tent and an outdoor hot tub. Bathers should post a sign for nude or clothed activity.  Come snuggle up!

Wednesday Yardening

Today is sunny, hot, and windy. 

Doug started mowing -- he did the ritual meadow, part of the south lot, part of the yard nearest the house, and some paths in the savanna and prairie garden.  Now we have robins everywhere combing over the grass after insects.  :D

After lunch we shoveled ash out of the firepit because it's supposed to rain.

Lilacs are blooming.  So are crabapples, although it looks like the old one is dying.  Most of the blooms are on a seedling it has made nearby.
