Last weekend when my friends came to visit, one of them brought me a hostess gift.
This is an ornamental pepper. I have never seen anything like it.
Bright, deep scarlet peppers.
It is named, appropriately, Red Missile.
It is sitting beside the front door, inviting our guests to step in to Willow's Cottage.
Last night The Professor and I accepted an invitation to dinner at the home of some friends. The purpose of the dinner was to introduce us to another couple. We have much in common with both couples and the other lady is a member of the handweavers and spinners guild in the county. We talked spinning, knitting, weaving while the guys, all techy types, talked about whatever techy types talk about. I forsee a great friendship here.
And now, this morning, we are off to the Ventura County Harvest Festival, an arts and crafts fair held every year in October. My impression from the adverts is that it will be similar to the Sauvie Island Fair in Portland I attended for several years as a vendor. I hear there will be a potter there, selling his wares...among other handmade, handcrafted things.
Oh, and on October 20th, there is a Handweavers and Spinners Guild Open House at CSU Channel Islands. Better and better.
