Pythia and a Snake

This lady needs more clothes, although it would help if I cleared off the sewing table so I could actually sew her something. Work has distracted me, as well as discovering a bunch of the Age of Sail books and romances that I had not read before. ("Master and Commander" is one of them, as well as the very adults-only "False Colours"). I did find another tot-sized Halloween costume that some luckless doll will be modelling tomorrow. And here is our garden snake--this is the only time I have seen him (or her) I think the rain filled up the snake hole so he had to come up for air.
