The days are sunny
but the wind persists in its chilly ways
and I am dissuaded from
taking Bruce and the mobile cart
out for a spin.
Just down the lane.
Eyes are rolled and hands go up in the air
when I suggest
I might go over town!!!
Perhaps with good cause...
we are still keeping our distance
even (or especially) from those we'd like to hug!
So today I started to wind a warp....
a magic grey cotton that seems to shimmer
and a natural soft shade of white.
I have a delicious cone of white boucle, for weft
that I think would make wonderfully absorbent towels.
I am getting a little ahead of myself
as both looms are still dressed.
The bamboo and silk on the LeClerc
remind me that Easter is past
and it's time to get back to work...
and on the Glimakra I am playing,
and I don't know what the end result will be.
Colourful, if nothing else!!
Today I put that wonderful DVD I have
"Two Cellos" with Hauser and Sulic
and I played it a second time while I made cookies.
My daughter brought me turkey and dressing
and my DIL a lovely plate of ham and corn
and scalloped potatoes...
So I am quite stuffed, and hoping that by bedtime
I might have time for the pumpkin pie and cream!
But perhaps I should leave that until tomorrow, -
age is inclined to leave the stomach a little delicate
if one overstuffs at bedtime!!!
And speaking of bed and treats
here is the little dog, "Bruce" telling me that
it is time to go out for his bedtime rendezvous
with whatever cats might be around,
and a couple of bits and pieces before he settles for the night.
He misses Callie,
as I do, too!
Tomorrow perhaps the west wind will have abated somewhat
and we might be able to dig and scratch around
in the garden!
