Those little icicles on the bird feeders have formed during the past hour and a half. DH is on his way to the east coast this afternoon, so I'm sending out "safe travel" vibes to escort him. Yesterday was also an overcast and chilly day.....a complete contrast to most of Friday. Friday, for me, was a lovely weather day. By noon, the sun was shining and the temperature was in the high 50s. I was on the road quite a bit of the day (Oshkosh-Brookfield-Home), so I opened the Jeep's sunroof, cracked-open the side windows, cranked the tunes and had one of the best days, mood-wise. It was a day to save for savoring when life is more demanding and a reminder of simple joys that will (help) keep me sane. And it is just so simple--sun, good music, a bit of a breeze and I'm able to put aside some of my personal world's worries for a few hours. The songs that were played on the radio Friday were some of my all-time favorite driving tunes. Thanks to the music programmer!
I am pretty happy with my spinning progress yesterday. I'm spinning some Polworth fiber from a Wisconsin Sheep and Wool vendor (no label and no memory, although I could find them by location in the vendor's shed). As of this photo, there is just under half of the fiber in singles on the bobbin. I think it will end up as a two-ply.
The color is "Autumn Oaks." I will probably have to do some sleuthing to find the vendor, depending on how much yarn I end up with. I think I would like a vest from this yarn.
I plan to spin again this afternoon--as soon as I light the woodstove. DH set up the wood so all I'll have to do is light a match. Life is good.
