I’ve just purchased my first fruit trees! For most of my life, trees have been something that just happened in the landscape around me.

This weekend, Saturday, the weather was glorious. In the 40s, ground thawed, warm enough to work outside with no coat.

Warm spring interlude
in winter; fog flowing from
the river; around buildings

I have a store-bought travel jewelry organizer like this one, and I decided to make one for a friend for Christmas.

I had been wanting to add mp3 playing ability to the stereo in my Ford Sport Trac. Happily, I found a device on eBay, and got it for a good price. It is the FRD03-POD/S.

This is a simple laptop sleeve that I made for myself so I can carry the computer in any bag I choose. All fabric is solid black except for the rose print on the front.
