Not in the plans
Wednesday, August 02, 2017      3 comments

Today was one of those days that got out of hand. I had a plan when I went to bed last night. But felt like crap when I woke up. I did manage the morning walk with Dearly Beloved and when we got home went back to bed for 2.5 hours. I felt much b... Read more

I got to the village early to be certain I had everything ready: moved displays and equipment to have room for the kids to be able to see what I was doing; pulled fleeces apart so each kid could have a lock of wool, if they wanted (some did not,... Read more

Tomorrow I am at the village because we have a kids' camp coming. This is my first non-off-the-cuff talking/demonstrating event. The plan is to divide the kids into three groups so I will have one group in the loom house, playing with wools and ... Read more
Inside-Outside comparisons
Wednesday, July 26, 2017      4 comments

Random thoughts here. A long time ago I read a quote "You only see what I choose to show; do not compare your insides to my outsides" which I have been thinking about a lot lately. I see all the before/after photos on the community feed on ... Read more
Deer Dear!

This morning could have been a rotten morning but the three deer that were running directly at our car all stopped before they got to the street. We got safely past and they got safely across the street. That was the panic deer. Walking, w... Read more

We are under a heat advisory until later tonight. This morning, at the normal walking time, we had lightening. No early morning walking. The plan, which we just returned from executing, was to walk around the mall. If we do all the outlying sect... Read more

This month I am at the historical village on Thursdays. I had it set up with the staff that when they locked up the loom house on Wednesdays they would turn on the air conditioner so the loom house would be more comfortable (read I would able to... Read more

The day is pretty much set - Thursdays at the historical village and museum. This week, along with spraying my own version of 'febreeze', I took my vacuum with me and vacuumed first. Then, while taking the vacuum back to the car, I sprayed my st... Read more

This morning I overslept so we did not make it to our walking place until 5:45am, after other walkers, bikers, and dogs. So no wildlife. Not even a rabbit. But we did see a doe and fawn (still had spots) on the drive home. I wanted to show you t... Read more
What were you thinking!!!
Tuesday, July 11, 2017      2 comments

What was I thinking? The rug is still ongoing. It is becoming so huge that I have to keep an end folded to keep working on it on my table. But with that, and the unemployment requirements, I accepted a test knitter task. With a deadline of 31 Ju... Read more
Almost done with step 1

I have been working through small bits of fiber that I received in goodie bags at conferences. I have a plan but it will take time since it involves spinning everything, plying with another yet-to-be-spun yarn, and then weaving (stay tuned). As ... Read more

I am trying to schedule one day a week at the Historical Village/Museum. Today was the day. Inside the museum I was only able to weave three-four inches (10 minutes) because they closed early. Most of my day was spent working in the Loom House. ... Read more

Now I have received notice that the university is appealing the affirmative decision that I get unemployment. Even after the Senior Director of HR Policy and Administration assured my lawyer that the university would not contest. I have the feel... Read more
Interview--nailed it
Monday, July 03, 2017      1 comments

I know that sounds weird but I managed to not get offered a job. The person I was interviewing with did understand my position. The great thing is that I had my two applications for this week completed before I left the house for the interview s... Read more
