I have a day and an hour and a half I need to take before the end of June, for vacation time. I can’t really go anywhere, so I didn’t know what I’d do. I figured I’d better actually take the time off, as I work so much overtime taking time off sometimes seems like the absolute luxury. Then I received my most recent issue of Spin Off. I must admit, I haven’t spun yarn in probably 2 years. well, it as at least been over a year. I was flipping through the magazine, when I realized, that is exactly what my day of luxury should be, I day I get reaquainted with my wheel.
So that is exactly what I’m going to do. This weekend Nick will be off “jamming” with his buddy Joe. So I’m going to do several things:
- Go Clearance Shopping at Kohl’s, because I have a coupon for an extra 30% off of whatever I buy, and I need to buy some new work pants. And I need a pair of tennis shoes and brown sandals.
- Clean out my closet.
- Prepare my spinning wheel and fiber for spinning extravaganza.
While we were setting up Nick’s kit at our friends’ house, their little girl, had to help out. She has perfect rythmn! We didn’t notice it until later, but after the set-up Nick and his friend were jamming, this little one picked up one of NIck’s other percussion intruments, and we could hear her playing it in the background, she was in perfect synch with Nick and her dad. She’s not quite 3! A musician in the making no doubt.
Last but not least a picture of my Basil. He loves to hide in blankets and tunnel through them. For some odd reason this is fun, we had to finally put a grate down in the bottom of his cage, as he was going under the paper and tunnelling through it, and then shredding the paper and throwing it outside of his cage.
So now he just gets to tunnel in blankets.
