"Oh, the summer night, Has a smile of light, And she sits on a sapphire throne." ~ Bryan Procter

Yesterday, aside from being the most beautiful of summer days so far, was Bruce's birthday. While we did not have anything particular planned, it turned out that the golfers (Bruce being among them) decided on a dinner out with their spouses. We ate at Vesper Hills Golf Club, seriously understated, and in a spectacular setting overlooking Otisco Lake. 

There were ten of us altogether, and armed with only my cell-phone, I tried to capture a bit of the atmosphere.

Their menu is quite eclectic, with everything from Yak Burgers to more traditional fare. I had B.L.T. Scallops - lovely; and Bruce had a type of Turkish fish called basina. it too was just wonderful.

We were there just long enough to enjoy a beautiful summer sunset. A wonderful way to wrap up the birthday of a wonderful man!

"Creativity is the voice of the spirit. One’s art should be the extension of oneself." ~ Martiza Burgos

Back in November, I shared my sister Robin's new Etsy shop, Robino Feltworks. Robin (the same sister who has bee hives) is visiting and brought with her the newest additions to her shop. We shared them at Knit Night, and the agreement was that they are beautiful! These recent ones are all "wet felted" as opposed to using upcycled wool garments. I have included a YouTube video at the end as an example of how "wet felting" is done.

This one is now mine!
Aren't they beautiful! The bottom three are up for sale on Robin's Etsy site!
