1. First up this week, I like the British Library's archive of/blog about it's digitized medeival manuscripts. Some of you may know I'm working on a series of quilts inspired by illuminated manuscripts (e.g. here and here and here and here and here) and I was super excited a while back to stumble onto the British Library's blog on the subject. In the first place, it turned me on to a new resource of online manuscripts to look at, but it's also so interesting to learn a little about the manuscripts and about how they're preserved and digitized. One of the posts this week about a manuscript containing a cut-out astrolabe was really cool, you should check it out!
3. I love Mike and Bentley (and all the dogs)! This is of course true every week, but Mike recently sent me this picture of Bentley photobombing his selfie by peering over the backseat of the jeep, and I thought it was too cute not to share. It was after a long car ride, I think they were both ready to be done in the car.
4. I love sailing! Last night was our first race of the season. It actually started about a month ago but for various boat and schedule related reasons last night was the first time we were able to get out and race. We had to race in the non-spin division because our crew needs a little more practice getting the spinnaker up and down, but we had an absolute blast. No pics during the race, but I snapped a few heading out (and back in). It was a great night to be on the water, just windy enough, warm but not too hot. Hopefully it'll be a great racing season!
Here's hoping everyone is hanging in there and thanks as always to LeeAnna!
