I came away thinking I might knit or write in any spare time.
The Dogs Above had other ideas.
First I accidentally found a silk shirt at the thrift store.
Then I was poking around a ruin and found a dyepot.
There was a barbecue arrangement but no matches. So I purloined a glowing coal from a nearby sauna. It was that, or use the toaster. Don't ask.
The twigs were all a bit damp. Happily I had some firewater with me (thank you Schlosshotel Kronberg!!) and a piece of linen rag. It proved an effective combination.
I gathered some old friends from the roadside
At first the brew (unusually) turned green.
Rather an idyllic location, don't you think?
Holidays. Gotta love em.
