Day 2

I swear to you I had fewer of those 2 days ago. It's been a week. Thankfully, tomorrow is Friday, and the boss is out, which means I can relax and have a better day.

Julie freaked me out about carpet bugs, which prompted me to pull out my roving and spin a little bit. I am not very good at making yarn with my spindle, which isn't much of a surprise. I don't play with it very often, and honestly, I don't really have time to take up spinning, even though I do find working with the spindle to be really relaxing. I think most of my yarn is safely stored in plastic bags inside plastic tubs, but there's one area in my house that I'm a little nervous about. I think I'll dig into that area this weekend, but it's hiding a lot of things I don't really want to deal with.

It rained all day and wasn't a good day for photos. Hopefully tomorrow the pollen will have been washed away a bit and it will be slightly drier. Roads were flooded for my morning commute - high tide + rain + living at sea level = hazardous conditions. If it's a little better, I'll snap a shot of the wrap I've been knitting away on. Let's face it - it's a novelty scarf, but it's silk and it feels fantastic, and I'm feeling totally unashamed of it.

Spinning is sort of fun, but I'm fighting it off! I don't need another stash!

I hear you on the 'don't wanna deal with'. I got about halfway through The Pit last night and quit before I had to face the true mess. That's on tap for today.

Spinning is very relaxing (at least since we don't have to do it for a living or to clothe our families). I do it more for the relaxation than the yarn, to the point I'm thinking of giving some of the yarn away.

As for the white hair... HA. I let mine grow out without dyeing it... wait 'til you see the white this weekend. Please. I can barely see that little white hair on your head.

It's just the angle you're holding your head at; turn, & the light will glance off the hair, showing it to be brown again.
