We Have A Winner and A Little Zen
Drumroll please! And the winner is.... Imbrium! Check out her recent post about being marooned on Sleeve Island, and give a word of encouragement. Thanks to everyone who entered; I didn't even realize that many people read my blog!
Deni pointed out that my email address on one of my Destash items wasn't working; went and fixed that. Maybe I am trying to do too much? once again? That was the trait about myself I revealed as one of my weaknesses in my interview for the GED teaching position this afternoon. I won't know for a day or so if I got the job, but the questions were interesting, and even more insightful was realizing on the drive back to Downieville that it would be wonderful either way. A wonderful opportunity to use my teaching skills to help others if I got the chance and a wonderful way to continue to have time to blog about knitting and the Eat Local Challenge, and work with my animals if I didn't. I think this might be as close as I will ever get to zen principles in action in my life - a truly magic moment for me.
Knitting night was great fun, with Stephanie and Linda working on socks, and Earlene trying to knit a baby blanket with the assistance of Linda's tortoiseshell cat, Missy. Missy has decided that we are all really cool, and that it is especially fun to find a willing lap, get comfortable, and then attempt to chew on the yarn as it passes by. Good thing she is pretty!
Linda and I will get the lamb meat that we ordered from our sheep/wool raising friends, the Harveys, tomorrow, and Linda will even get a preview of the lovely wool that Anna has had spun up when she visits the upcoming quilt show in Portola this weekend, where Anna will have a booth featuring her wool quilt batting and her yarn. If summer ever gets here, we will have a needle-felting class at the farm to look forward to, set for June 8th. If you are anywhere near, and want to know more, give me a shout.
