I am spinning for the Tour de Fleece...
8 ounces of Chaya. I’m going to spin 3 bobbins full for a 3 ply heavy worsted weight for some potential holiday gifts this winter. It is so hot today, I can’t even remember what cold feels like. I just know that when it is cold, I can’t remember what hot feels like.
Spinning time for Stage 13, day 15… about 2 hours. A bit in the morning while watching the end of the Stage 13 and a bit later in the day on the driveway.
I am thinking… how excited I am to go to Vermont tomorrow even if it is just for the day.
I am thankful for… leftover chocolate bars from s’mores
From the kitchen… still too hot for any real cooking – sandwiches for lunch and tacos for dinner
I am wearing… shorts and tank
I am going… with Dave and B to get J in Vermont tomorrow. We are going to have a picnic lunch by the river. I’m anticipating an awesome day!
I am reading… I just finished A Gate at the Stairs. I know, it took a while, but I do like this book. I found myself liking most of the characters and the insights of the main character (her views on religion especially). It is a strange mix of sweet and sour. There are some incredibly sad things that happen, but yet you don’t feel sad all the way. At the end I had a tear in my eye, but yet a smile too.
I am hearing… Dave and B watching a movie in the basement (They are AC fans and that is where ours lives.)
Around the house… Quiet except for the movie and this fly circling my head! I wish it would go away! Dave brought K to field hockey camp today. It is only for a few brief days, but it is intense. Last year so many girls from her school went that they had their own team, this year it is just her and one other girl so it will be quite a different experience. K likes to meet new people so she should be fine.
One of my favorite things… Beer o’clock. Yeah – I talk about it a lot on Facebook, but I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here yet. Beer o’clock is usually Friday evening after Dave gets home from work and it is just a nice way to start the weekend. We were too busy for it last night so tonight we pulled our chairs and our beers (and me, my wheel) out on the driveway and just talked. We pretend we have a porch and wonder what it would be like to live in a real neighborhood and see people walk by our house and greet us as they walk by. (Yeah, is that pathetic? I’m sure that we idealize neighborhoods quite a bit!)
A few plans for the rest of the week… I’m just wondering when the heck the next Tour rest day is!!!
