There everywhere- but ohhh so elusive.
Yesterday Claude and I went out for an acorn hunt. I'd flat ran out of acorn tops to fill all the orders I'd taken for these little nuts, so the big nut and I drove around for over a hour before we found a cluster of big oaks which bore enough fruit. It was a slightly ridiculous scene- Claude in a sling with a blanket wrapped around us to keep him warm and asleep- me bending and holding, and nearly falling over trying to keep the blanket in place, gather the nuts, and straining on my unfit legs- up and down- up and down. Sometimes I curse my disdain for the car seat- really would it have been that hard to just carry him around in that??? apparently- yes.
So now back in the studio... I'm working away. Some orders have been sent out with acorns, and I have a few more to go. Nut Nut Nut.... repeat.
