I'm still here!

I've just been really, really busy. Updates soon, I promise! :-)

Sabrina, just hush.

Mr Wedge,
You cannot repeat what you did last year. Westbrook was struggling in the 7th, and all I've been hearing during the off-season was about how we are building our bullpen. When the score is tied in the seventh, BRING IN THE BULLPEN! Then maybe Peralta won't have the chance to screw things up.


I miss Omar. :-(

This is just wrong...

On Thursday, it was 74 degrees and I walked outside in a t-shirt and bare feet. Friday, we needed light jackets. Saturday, it did this:

We've officially broken the seasonal snowfall record with 104.2". Yippee skippee. They can keep the @$&%* record; send Spring back!! I hate lake effect snow.

There's something inherently wrong with 4-5" of snow on the ground the day before OPENING DAY. At least our season opener is in Chicago - it's supposed to be in the 60's there tomorrow, and we're going to dominate the AL Central this year. (I'm going to be fighting with Sabrina about this all season, I think...) :-)

It's been a fibery 24 hours!!

This morning I took a bunch of fleece to a new processor, Morningstar Fiber in Apple Creek, Ohio. She is going to be at The Great Lakes Fiber Show in May, and I'm going to demonstrate in her booth! She does BEAUTIFUL Icelandic roving, and can also spin your fiber into yarn for you. She is also going to let me bring some of my lotions, creams and such to sell! Karen is a very, very nice lady, and wonderful to work with.

On the way home, I stopped at Sally's Shop in Wadsworth, and bought a Rosewood spindle from Grafton Fibers. I am spindle challenged, and hope that maybe having a nice spindle will help me overcome the urge to throw it out the window. I also bought 1-1/2 lbs of Lamb's Pride mill ends - it has a date with the drum carder very soon.

Last night, Borders had ONE copy of The Yarn Harlot's new book! I've almost finished it - I have about 10 pages to go. It's a great book - I highly recommend it!!

Here's my haul for the day:

I immediately started spinning the Icelandic Thel - and immediately got nearly laceweight. It's beautiful stuff!

And Rambo decided to help. I'm waiting for the vet bill when he actually *catches* one of Queen Matilda's spokes.

And a marriage proposal that really made my day. :-)
