Sunshine through gate, August 31, 2013

It’s the last day of August and the last day (for all summery intents and purposes) of yet another glorious summer, beginning with taking off for London (reported here), flying from there to Berkeley (reported here), going to Lopez (reported here) and thence to Seattle (reported here and here), and back to Berkeley (reported here). Back to the Big Apple tomorrow!

New knitting project, well under way! (After a false start, in which the knitter understood what the instructions meant when they said “be careful not to twist your stitches” when she found she was knitting a Mobius strip!)

Downtown Berkeley Post Office, August 22, 2013

Downtown Berkeley’s graceful historic post office may be sold, but not if the protesters and “occupiers” (note the tents in the foreground of this shot) have their way. Read all about the selling off of historic post office buildings across the country here, and be sure to scroll down aways to read the coverage of the Berkeley post office and see a shot of one of the pretty murals inside.
