Last year at this time, I mentioned the International Day of Yarn-bombing. Yarn-bombing is a relative new concept of decorating signs, lamp posts, trees, and other items outdoors with knitted or crocheted items. Those decorated items can be totally covered or not.
Today is the day, and I'm going out to decorate my neighborhood park and vicinity with a few crocheted daisies made by a fellow bookcrosser. I won't be covering anything totally, but I will be adding some brightly covered blossoms. Hopefully, some of them will remain for some time as they did before (actually, one is still proudly decorating a street sign). Like last year, she sent quite a few bookcrossers including me these flowers. Making it a true bookcrossing event, I am also going to "wild release" two books down at the gazebo in the park.
And now, switching subjects, an update on the city's "project", AKA the dismantling of the Conagra site. Yesterday, another two sections of silos were crushed by the wrecking ball and the seam ripper/guillotine (our term for the H-shaped weight that rips seams down the side of the silos destroying the re-bar within). Only about sixteen silos, the tower, and the building atop the silos to go. How long it will take is hard to say, but will keep the updates coming (hopefully with some photos in the near future).
Because Rob and I went sailing yesterday, we got to see it as up close and personal as it is possible since the site is on the Huron River (where our boat is docked) leading to Lake Erie where we sail. It was a great day to sail, and to see chunks of concrete come tumbling down in a cloud of dust.
