I was one lucky girl yesterday! I got to meet Linda Hansen of Bellwether Wool at her farm, Dayspring Farm (which is actually around the corner, kinda) and not only get some absolutely dreamy Cormo roving but also make a new friend. Turns out she’s from the Bay Area too and we just got to talking and before I knew it I had been there for almost 3 hours! I don’t know what it is, but there is something about knitters and spinners that makes them some of the nicest people to know. Linda even gave me a little tutorial about Navajo plying (I think I’ll need to see that again….) and so many tips about spinning and dyeing! I just love that about the fiber community… I am so excited to get my hands into that stuff and spin! I was thinking maybe some socks for the robin’s egg blue…
Had a "mommy & me" day with Riley, my middle daughter today. We saw The Break Up with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn. What a waste of time! It wasn’t funny and (if you don’t want me to ruin the ending look away) they don’t even get back together at the end! If I wanted to see two people fight meanly with each other with no humor I could see it somewhere else without paying for it! (Actually I was going to say at home but Doug and I hardly ever fight, much less fight cruelly). I would not reccommend that movie.
Another thumbs down goes to the freakin’ Soprano’s! What was that last night? Talk about a show becoming too full of itself and going downhill! Nuff said….
And in the "I can’t believe my own eyes" catagory: a man riding his bike with one of those kiddie trailers on the back but instead of a kid riding in it theres a yellow labrador! I should have taken a picture with my cell phone but didn’t think of it until too late! Gave me a good laugh, though.
Hopefully some picks of those washcloths for the teachers–I’m almost done!
