tuesday all day

Lately our Pastor has been having us journal...something I have done for nearly 20 years. Mostly for prayer and Biblical reference and to see the patterns in our growth. So I haven't been posting blogs as often as I should have. The spinning and knitting however is wonderful. Today I am stitching up my gray Alpaca Twist sweater and finishing a new Kathamandu stocking hat. I also have high hopes for another sermon and a small hand-dyed scarf....time will tell...lol. Hopefully tomorrow night I will have pictures up and running in here. But for now the housework is calling me...oy!

well last night my dear friend Sally phoned from Lincoln and informed me I had sold my first bag of custom dyed roving!!!! So there you have it - its official !!! WH and friends are rewiring my outdoor patio so that I may hook up more that one crockpot or microwave at a time. Its either that or he would have to invest in Clorox futures for our bathtubs sake....lol. How many or you actually have a seperate lab/studio for your dyeing? I am going to attempt to have photos up next week of all the rovings and yarns I have been dyeing. I look forward to actually seeing them online...lol. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!! By the way does anyone have any big plans for the holidays?

A chance of WHAT?????

Howdy all I am finally getting this thing up and running. SNOW is the four letter word of the day! We are expecting to get our first snowfall of the year today. We are due.....I still haven't lit the furnace yet. But between all the crockpots and microwaves going - not to mention supper in the oven and 3 sermons left to outline I should be okay. I expect to have photos up and going by the middle of next week. So you can get an idea of my inspiration and production in the spinning world. Speaking of supper - it smells wonderful - what are your favorite meals? Tonight I am making "Dotties roasted veggies and sausage". My WH (wonder hubby) likes it as do I. Kids don't complain when they are home. We have a blended family 2 boys 2 girls. Oldest is in Seattle, next one is in the Navy (married to another navyman she is...lol), another is in Tuscon, and the youngest is in the Wichita Kansas area attending college. We own 2 rabbits and claim a hoard of neighborhood children. How big and where are your families? Well enough of an intro today....these sermons arent gonna write themselves...lol.
