Sigyn Speaks

It’s About Time.

A BHI  (Big, Heavy Item) arrived in the stockroom for the human yesterday, but it was raining, so she and her staff waited a bit.  And then the stockroom was closed, so it’s not today until someone can go fetch it and cart it over here.

Great Frigga’s Corset!  It’s the long-lost centrifuge!  It was not delivered by F&THS, whose paperwork carries the delightful slogan.

(The human female was surprised, because apparently they only go as far as the Big city to the South)

Nor was it delivered by Yeah, Right, Ciao, but by a third, apparently more reliable, shipper.

Here it is, out of its protective swaddlings.  It’s ENORMOUS!  And so terribly clean!

centrifuge1

Yeah, that won’t last.

Let’s plug it in!   Odin’s eyepatch!  Look at that slick display!

centrifuge3

Speed, timer, and a bunch of other things.  Hmmm.  This looks complicated. I’m not sure the human female should go anywhere near it…

The inside is clearly set up for some good, fast, fun!

centrifuge2

Come, on Sorvall!  Let’s go for a spin!

P.S.  Sigyn, here.  You know what the best part about this shipment is?  It’s the return address for the vendor:

Is that not the cutest address ever?  I’d love to live on a street with a cute name like that!  I think I’ll ask the humans if we can move…

: )

Predictable…

No visit to the Big City to the South would be complete without a visit to the Large Market.  I don’t really expect to find anything new or exciting, but Sigyn likes to talk to the fruit and flowers and sing little songs to the lobsters in the tank, both of which I find completely adorable, so it makes my day.

Sigyn says the label means these fruits speak French.

MDCentralmarket1

“Bonjour Monsieur Banane! Vous avez l’air très ensoleillé aujourd’hui. C’est un jaune très flatteur.”

“Don’t worry, apples.”

MDCentralmarket2

“The new crop will be coming in soon, but I’m sure someone will buy you before then.”

The store is decorated with semi-locally grown flowers today.

MDCentralmarket3

Sigyn wants a boost so she can reach up and make the snapdragons actually snap.

They’re really pushing this sausage.    I wonder how hot it is?

MDCentralmarket4

And if the humans would notice if I slipped it into their recipes?

Sigyn thinks this wine’s  goat label is cute.

MDCentralmarket5

Nice horns, I must admit.

More goaty stuff:

MDCentralmarket6

Fig and black pepper goat cheese?  That sounds just like the frou-frou sort of thing the humans would eat.  I bet they actually buy some.

MDCentralmarket7

“Miss Peony, you’re sure looking cute!

“Your ruffly dress is a beaut!

“I certainly think

It’s a nice shade of pink!

And real comfy to sit in, to boot!”

My sweetie the poetess, ladies and gentlemen.

A Sigyn In Her Natural Habitat (Sigyn Speaks)

Loki is still pouting in the car, muttering about being dragged away from his tabletop battle, and the humans are nosing about in the fountain pen store, so I’m taking this opportunity to go have a good rummage in the bead store that’s in the next block.

This place is a regular treasure trove!  I never know what I’m going to find.  Last time I was here, I swam around in their loose bead bins.   Today, I think I’ll look at some of their mineral specimens.

Ooh!  Fossils!  They’ve got a trilobitey thing, which is pretty neat, but I bet the human female would like this leaf even better.

beadshop-3

Oh, my stars!  Pyrite geodes!  They’re sooo sparkly!  Loki would love one of these.

beadshop-2

Almost room enough to curl up and take a nap in.  Now why does that sound so familiar?

Over here they have some big quartz crystals.

beadshop-1

Hee hee hee!  How funny! Three Sigyns!  And all of them are hungry.  I should go find the others and see if it’s time for lunch!

: )

A Bush Made Just For Me (Sigyn Speaks)

A few weeks ago, the human female planted a new little shrub in the front yard.  Something called “Pride of Barbados.” It has fabulous, feathery, ferny foliage (and isn’t that fun to say!), but it didn’t have any flowers.

But now it does!  And now I see why Barbados is so proud!!

pride of barbados

They’re red and yellow, my two most favorite colors, and they are perfect for dangling!

Loki says he needs my help with something indoors, but I am having WAY too much fun out here.  Sorry, sweetheart.  Your mischief will just have to wait.

The Day After Easter–Shhhh! (Sigyn Speaks)

I’ve been walking for a long time.  Surely the Easter Bunny is around here somewhere.

Ohhhh!  I think…  I think that’s him there, asleep under the oxalis…

sigyn-bunnywalk18

He looks so tired.  I’ll let him sleep and leave a snack for when he wakes up.

sigyn-bunnywalk19

And I have an idea…

A cold front came in and it’s a little cool today.  I think I have just what we need back home.  Sleep tight, Easter Bunny.  I’ll be back quick as I can.

sigyn-bunnywalk20

Nighty night.

The Day After Easter (Sigyn Speaks)

Happy Day-after-Easter!  Isn’t it a beautiful day?

sigyn-bunnywalk1

The primrose-y corner of the lawn is looking especially beautiful today.  I think I’ll go for a walk!

sigyn-bunnywalk2

What’s this?

sigyn-bunnywalk3

A left-behind Easter egg!

And look!  Here’s another one!

sigyn-bunnywalk4

I didn’t know this walk was going to be an egg hunt!   I wonder who left them?

sigyn-bunnywalk5

I don’t see anyone over this way?

sigyn-bunnywalk6

Nobody that way, either.  No one seems to want them.   Hmm.  But I like hard-boiled eggs.  I’ll go home and fetch a basket and come back to collect them.

sigyn-bunnywalk7

Hum te tum, humty tumty tum!

sigyn-bunnywalk8

I’ve got the white one, and here’s the bluey-gray one.  I do wonder who left them?

sigyn-bunnywalk9

Maybe it was the Easter Bunny!  Maybe he knew I’d be out for a walk today and left them just for me to find!

I wonder what the Easter Bunny does the day after Easter?  I mean, Santa Claus has Mrs. Claus to look after him and make sure he eats something healthy after all of the cookies, but who looks after the Easter Bunny?   Hey!  That gives me a great idea!  Be right back!

sigyn-bunnywalk10

I’m going to go see if I can find him, and bring him a snack ’cause he’s probably tired and hungry from all of the egg-decorating and hopping.

sigyn-bunnywalk11

There’s a bunny!  “Excuse me, are you the Easter Bunny?”

sigyn-bunnywalk12

“Well, hello there!  No, I’m not the Easter Bunny.”

“Oh.  Okay.  Here’s a carrot for you anyway.  Bye!”

sigyn-bunnywalk13

There’s another bunny!  “Pardon me, are you the Easter Bunny?”

sigyn-bunnywalk14

“No, my dear.  I’m not.”

“Oh.  That’s all right.  Do you know where I can find him?”

“I’m not sure.  Maybe along over thataway?”

“Thank you!  Here’s a carrot for you.  Have a nice day!”

sigyn-bunnywalk15

Maybe this is the Easter Bunny!  “Hello!  Are you the Easter Bunny?”

sigyn-bunnywalk16

“No, little one, I’m not.  But I think I saw him earlier.  If you keep going along the path, you may find him.”

“Oh, thank you!   Here–have a carrot!  Bye!”

sigyn-bunnywalk17

…to be continued.

Visiting With Old Friends (Sigyn Speaks)

It’s been more than its fair share of cold and wet this winter, but I think spring may be just around the corner!  I’ve been very busy greeting old friends!

leucojum

Hello, snowdrops!  See?  I can hang upside down, too!

Hello, daffodil!

daffodil

I’d forgotten you had such a sunny yellow face.  It’s a good look on you!

Hello, dwarf dandelion!

krigia-1

Looks like you are all by yourself today.  Don’t worry!  I’m sure your cousins will be along soon.

Hello, little rosy bluet!

bluets1

And hello, park full of  bluets!!!  You don’t mind if I just flop down and bask in the sun, do you?

bluets2

I don’t care what the calendar says–if the bluets are up, it’s spring!
