…because you’re going to need it for this post. I feel like I’ve been extremely boring lately.
Saturday was spent spinning. I finished turning this:
8 oz of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Corriedale in the “I Mad Heart You” colorway.
Almost 600 yards of fingering weight 3 ply. I was in a hurry to finish it because my plan was to give it to my mom for Christmas. I’m thinking now that I won’t, because it seems kind of dark. It seems more like a Minnesota yarn than a Texas one. I may give her a rain check. I have a hunk of “My Blue Heaven” roving that is her favorite color, but that’s what I always give her. Here’s one more shot.
What do you think? Mom’s or mine?
Yesterday was a funeral and a chance to see lots of great relatives. Last night, we had our own family party. We were pretty low key on the gifts this year, so nothing too exciting!
And today I’ll give you a shot of my front yard instead of the back.
Yep! Another snow day. The kids went to school for two hours this morning and now they’re back home. Frankie and a friend are out on the little kid snowmobiles and everyone else is hanging out. I should be paying bills, working on Christmas cards, packing to leave for my parents, and cleaning up the clutter. What I’d really like to do is take a nap.
So, did you consume enough caffeine to stay awake for the saga of my exciting weekend? I’m not complaining though! My goal this year is to stay sane and to be content through all the rush of Christmas.
Here is the music that has been going through my head this week. Sit back, take a big breath, and relax and know that All Is Well.
