Life with a left-leaning Fiberista and my journey to find sanity and more time to knit, spin and weave.
A Mini-Vacation

A Mini-Vacation

Steve had jury duty again on Monday so I took a vacation day to see all the Christmas (which was especially wonderful because it was not super crowed and I did not have anyone complaining while I spent my time soaking it all in!) It was super cold, but the sun was out...

Sometimes Monday, November 6

…are full of gratitude! The weekend was so full of so many good things. Thankfully the rain held off until late in the day so there was lots of out-door time. The gardens were put to bed. And, the extra hour was used for reading! Sunday's torrential downpours did not...
