It was a quiet weekend…We started off with goat shearing (and goat rustling) early saturday morning. My friend Linda kindly came over to lend us her shears, advice and support and ended up lending us her shearing talent too, as she was way better at shearing goats with attitude than I was! Thank you Linda! I now have a half of a laundry basket filled with pygora goat fiber to wash, card and then spin. It will be a lengthy process….
Due to the bending over during the shearing my lower back has taken this opportunity to remind me that I’m not 23 anymore so the rest of the weekend was spent letting my back relax and get lots of sock knitting done and some hoodie knitting done too. I definitely want to get that particular monkey off (or on) my back!
So even though the weekend was a quiet one it felt good to relax because things are only going to get crazier in the coming weeks. I’m looking forward to the fall weather and Cal football and cozy fires and much knitting on weekends.
Well, mom’s birthday is tomorrow and there is still some creative preparation that must happen so off I go to the cottage so that everything is done in time to watch Life on Mars on BBCA. Love that!
