Random

Mom was up several times last night. One time was at 5:00am. I wasn't ready to be up for the day, and managed to get her back in bed around 5:30. She was back up at around 6:30. She came into my bedroom (actually the house's living room, complete with large picture window), made my bed, (I was still in it!), and then sat down on the loveseat at the foot of my bed. She brought a blanket with her. I joined her on the loveseat, spread the blanket over our laps, and we settled in for the show.







Watched the school bus go by.





Watched the milk truck go by.



Watched the sun go behind some clouds,



and then emerge again.


And maybe we both closed our eyes in defense against the brightness of the sun. For several minutes.


To think that I could have been sleeping instead of leaning against Mom, sharing a blanket, watching the sun rise. Sometimes sleep is overrated.


In other news, I am in full on production mode.

I have just shy of a pound of this made up, plus more fiber dyed to make some more.

Wanna see?



Fiber seems to have overtaken my living room. (Actually the house's dining room.)

Maybe I should do some cleaning up? Nah!

Hey! Rick is having a funny contest. (Not a knitting contest) Go check it out!

Oh, my. How beautiful. And, yes, what a great trade-off for sleep. It's so easy to get caught up in the mundane. As for the fiber? It's gorgeous! I love how you decorate!

Lovely sunset! Look at all that "fibery fluff"! Hey, your carder was built just about 30 miles from here...(I know, it's trivial~~but a link between your hometown and mine!)

It sure is! :)


I read Rick's contest post and just HAD to go back and re-read your "nutsack" post...Thanks for the laugh, again!!

That blue is beautiful as was the sunset. I'm glad you and Mom were able to watch the sunset together. Those are the moments that we will treasure forever Annie.

Oops, I meant sunrise...

That's so beautiful.

I was thinking this morning how much I enjoyed those times I used to sit with Dad and Mom.
