waving to you all with my nicely henna adorned hand
I’ve often thought about having one when I see the stalls at fairs and finally did when I had a gap between shows and there was no queue at the booth. It took me longer to browse her photos and choose a design than it did for her to draw – she was so adept and maintaining pressure on the bag and keeping the pattern flowing (a lot like icing really). Then I had to not bend my hand and keep it safe for 20 minutes (when I wondered why I gave her my right hand). Then picking off the dried bits of henna was fun. The dye darkened over 24 hours and now I keep catching a glimpse of the pattern on my hand – it should last for 2 weeks.
It was the last weekend of the Fringe and I finished in style with an amazing Quebec based acrobatic troupe – just watching them exhausted me.
Then my favourite comedian – Adam Hills, with the added interest that he has a sign language interpreter for his Sunday shows. Fun to watch the signs as well as listen to him.
A quiet week ahead but plenty to do with crochet projects and tidying the garden. Hope you all have a good one.

each year when Rinda reveals her summer scavenger hunt list I note to myself items that I’m sure I will find during the Fringe festivities (remember unicycle and juggler) and again this year I provided a good source of items.
item 17 – 2 or more people dressed the same – how could I resist these amazing costumes
and unexpectedly 3 flags on one pole (item 15) – not the best photo I have ever taken but I was so happy to spot them
and a fun take on sub b – a person holding an umbrella
and of course plenty of ticket booths (item 19)to choose from – I kept looking for one that was called that but box office seems to be the favoured term at the fringe
and 1 of 2 versions of item 1 – a bouquet of flowers
I also managed to capture 3 items while out and about locally
several versions of item 3 – person walking a dog
so many to choose from for item 14 – traffic signals – but I chose the temporary ones that were up while they were digging up a local street
and finally took one of the river I walk beside several times a week for item 20 a natural body of water
So good progress this month with only 3 items still to find but I do have 2 of the subs so I only need to find 2 of them and of course I need to do the selfie with a sign
Thanks to Rinda for another fun hunt to keep me alert.
