I finished plying today…
Fairy Wings yarn is composed of one strand of By Rebekah with Love carded fiber plus a thin strand of firestar. I haven’t set the twist yet, I’m a little nervous as it seems to be a very delicate yarn, but if it is going to grow up to be anything, it will eventually need to be washed. It is very “little girly” so maybe it might want to me a dressy winter hat? I do think my own girls are too old for this yarn though.
I am thinking… wow it is pretty hot, I can’t wait for at least the nights to start cooling
Today I watched... the very end of Stage 4 Tour de France. I am still working on understanding the jerseys, but someone shared this link with me that helps.
I am thankful for… a few moments of quiet today and not having to cook
From the kitchen… absolutely nothing. It is way too hot for any cooking though my husband brought home some of my favorite humus and we still have fresh salsa that he bought at the Farmer’s Market last weekend.
I am wearing… PJs
I am going... to start spinning something new after I publish this post while I watch another episode of Big Love (which I think is the last one that is currently available on DVD). I have sort of been procrastinating watching it because I don’t want it to end.
I am reading… I’m still reading A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore. I have only been reading a few pages each night before falling asleep. I did bring new books home from the library tonight with the hope that I should be able to start something new tonight. I also have Yes, Your Teen is Crazy!: Loving Your Kid Without Losing Your Mind sitting on my bed stand. I NEED to read this book because I’m sort of losing my mind, but I can’t read it at night because then I won’t be able to sleep. I’m thinking I might just have to actually schedule it in because it really is either read it or lose my mind.
I am hoping... that I actually do not lose my mind (This is starting to sound like one of those ‘true confession blogs!”)
I am hearing… my fan
Around the house… a little tense. It is hot and I’m not sure what else, but something apparently that I have yet to figure out
One of my favorite things… the sound of laughter
A few plans for the rest of the week… I’m going to try to not lose my mind and try to inspire some laughter.
