One of these days I’ll figure out how to get pictures from my camera to my tablet. Or even, how to use my tablet to navigate the internet. But today was not that day, and neither were any of the days last week. I was on Kauai all of last week, on my first ever solo vacation.
I had an awesome time. I alternated between laying on the beach in the sun and hiking up mountains. It. Was. Wonderful.
Uh. Something fiber related. So, believe it or not, Hawaiians used to dye fiber blue by crushing this berry:
They really didn’t have much in the way of fiber, no cotton or any of our animal fibers, so I’m thinking grass, like flax? Must have been plant fiber of some sort.
The strange thing about being on a vacation by yourself is without someone to talk to, to process the events of the day with, it’s kind of like it never even happened. I have tan lines and photos, but I felt strangely dissociated from life the whole time. Not that I’m complaining.
I started a new job today, so things may wiggle around a bit on the schedule as I try to figure stuff out, but I’ll try to get back to your regularly scheduled alpaca entertainment.
