Kurta and Fox
One of the parent volunteers in the school library where I work is from India. A few weeks ago, she brought me a kurta, an Indian garment that looks something like a long, loose shirt. Her husband had just gone to India and she had him return with kurtas for me and one of my coworkers. Such a nice thing to do!
I wasn't sure when I was ever going to have a chance to wear it. But tonight, as it happens, there's a South Asian festival at school, featuring food and dancing and other events. So I'm going to break out the kurta and wear it to work. It's now or never.
Olga and I heard the neighborhood fox again this morning, barking his wheezy bark. Here's a picture of him creeping along our garden wall. I shot it yesterday morning just after writing my blog post. He really doesn't like it when Olga is out in the garden early in the morning. She seems to disrupt his plans!
