Didn't you get my memo?

Didn't you get my memo?

Or maybe I should say, didn’t you read my memo?

Communication is highly under-rated, until Miss Communication showed up unexpectedly.

Can someone please show her the door… I really need to get dressed.

Moody Monday

Moody Monday

Days that are shades of grey and feeling empty and alone.

It can sometimes be too quiet….

However, I keep telling myself that spring is coming.

Hump Day?

Hump Day?

 Can you have a hump day if you are not working?  Wednesday’s are the “down hill from here” day in the work-a-day world.  So, do you get a Hump Day if you are in the ranks of the unemployed?

How about a Hump Month?

Can it be all down hill from here?

If it is all down hill from here, I had best get on my bike and start coasting!

Well… if nothing else – there is humor!

 Okay, so – what have I really been doing since I lost my job. 

Tears?  Okay – I will admit, I have shed a few.

Moping?  No – not so much of that.

Why? 

Well – I am having a bit of a love affair with Alice.

Who is Alice? 

Alice is my Ashford Traveler – and she is the apple of my eye.  I cannot tell you how much I adore her!  She is becoming a fast friend!  She is going to get me through the crisis of loosing my job!  And, she is going to do so with style!

I had spun up all the Wensleydale I purchased at the Allegan Fiber Festival – but – my dear friend Blogless Mary – bequeathed me with the Wensleydale she purchased at the same time. 

Voila’!  Below you will find 1600 more yards of this amazing stuff! 

I am amazed to tell you that I was able to replicate what I had spun earlier!  I am telling you people – Alice is creating a monster here!  You can blame it all on her! 

My  spinning buddy – Copper – seems to be loving Alice as much as I do.  He is so content to sit next to me as I sit and spin.  I think he loves Alice as much as I do!  Here he is – all ready for me to sit back down and while away a day or two spinning and plying. 

How can I refuse this face????  I mean seriously people.  I  am working on priorities – trust me!

 So,  then there was this enabler – Rose.  She is moving, right?  Well, she had some fiber to get rid of….

Can you see where this is going???? 

Yep, I bought it.  It came home with me.  One large bag of gold, burgundy, orange, pink goodness.  One very large bag – people – I have over 1800 yards of this amazing goodness.  It is spun, plied, washed, and dried.  I present to you – Autumn Glory. 

Isn’t she lovely?  How does she look on the polished table in the sunlight?  Are your fingers itching to touch her?  Knit with her?  Can you hear her speaking to you? 

Trust me – she has a siren’s call – and I have all kinds of things rattling around my  head.  Who knew that spinning would spark such creative genius in me! 

Here is a close up – just some Yarn Pr0n for your viewing pleasure! 

So… do you think there are any spinning jobs I might find? 

Have Alice -will travel!

Have a blessed evening everyone! 

 

 

 

And the name is….

Hello everyone.  Well, we have narrowed the choices down and are trying a few out on “Little Kitty” – I hope we have a decision soon.  Of course, we all like a different name.  I will keep you posted and announce the winning name later on.  I will also email the name suggester as well. 

I am convinced that life does not get easier as you get older.  Last week I lost my job.  Yep, how awesome is that?  In this economy I am a bit concerned about finding a replacement job.  I have interviewed, but I have not heard anything.  I am determined to not “read” anything into not hearing anything from them.  I obviously need to work on patience.  I have gotten a couple of phone calls from other lenders – but I am not certain that I want to continue lending in this marketplace. 

I have been reading other friends blogs – and loosing ones job seems inconsequential compared to what  is happening in other bloggers lives.  I also need to work on seeing benefits instead of problems!

So, what did I do all weekend? 

Well – I did some spinning, some knitting, some reading, and a lot of meditation.  I am thankful that my craft allows me to clear my mind of what is stressing me out and focus on where I need to be. 

I am blessed to have supportive friends, a loving family, and faith that this will all be alright. 

I am also extremely blessed to find solace in a most unexpected place, from a most unexpected person. 

My ex-husband.

So, stay tuned to see where this leads….

Stay safe and warm – we have cold weather heading in and SNOW in the forecast!
