Pondering…

As I sat and looked out the studio window this afternoon after an exhaustive time with math (I was calculating warp the “right” way not by the “flighty” way I usually do it!), I was struck with how much I have. Not material things, I am trying desperately to downsize the already downsized house. I have so much to be thankful for and nothing to be anxious about.

I have a studio filled with all the fibery tools I need; a warm, small house that doesn’t need tons of cleaning; a warm loving husband who is also my best friend for the last 31 years; a generous loving son; good parents-in-law who are still alive to see what happens with their youngest grandson (our son);  a nice town to live in near mountains, lakes and rivers; my health and mostly a purpose for living-Jesus Christ.  There is much, much more, but I can’t think of it all, this much overwhelms me with gratitude for the life that I live. I am so thankful for the technology of today. I sometimes dislike the hassles involved with the internet, cell phone and instant communication on my email, but I would not trade them for the “good ol’ days” without them. I can get information on weaving, knitting, spinning, dog diseases, human diseases, world news, politics, how to make the best pumpkin pie, ANYTHING I want or need to know about as easily as typing! That amazes me and makes me thankful. I can communicate with my family, friends, acquaintances with the same hobbies in the USA or across the globe. I can “talk” to my son in a war zone, or my neighbor 2 miles away.

As I continue to ponder on life in general and mine specifically, this afternoon, I will go and have a cup of coffee in my warm living room as I watch the snow fly by and be thankful for my blog!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL

It is 4 below zero actual temperature tonight but tomorrow promises to be a tad bit warmer, in the teens. We will celebrate the holiday with Mom this year. Hope you all enjoy your family, friends and acquaintances and are thankful for all of them.

Samples

I did get my twill samples done. I decided that I wanted to weave a real project now so took the samples off the loom. I have the loom ready to do a scarf. Here are photos of the samples.

Snow Beautiful Snow

It snowed last night and it is 9 degrees above zero at 5 in the afternoon! Ouch! I love these kinds of days now, because I can stay inside my nice warm townhouse and weave and spin!!!!!!!!!!!

Not Much Weaving Here

Been sick with diverticulitis (big infection in my intestines) and not doing much of anything lately. Did order some parts for the Macomber Loom. Hopefully get back to the loom soon.
