You know your having a bad day when...................
Yesterday was just not a good day....in fact most of the week has been a washout. Earlier in the week, my husband's car died for the last time. It is old, so it was to be expected.......however, yesterday as I was driving my daughter to work, the transmission in my car blew.....aagghhhh!!
After finally getting home and doing laundry, I noticed a small hole in the heel of my favorite Koigu socks.....then before climbing into bed at the end of the day, I put my other favorite socks on....my thick mountain color clog socks on because it is freakin' cold here. As my feet touched the cold floor, I felt the cold floor.....why am I feeling the cold floor with these thick cushy socks on I think to myself?? That would be, because there is a HUGE hole in the heel...aagghhhhhh!!!!!
You will also notice that there is a clump of blue wool in this picture. I am going to try and needle felt the wool into the heel of the koigu sock, but I don't know if the other pair can be saved. If any of you are experienced darners and can give me some tips, please give me a shout!
Did I mention that it is freakin' cold?? As I am sitting here typing, the weather bug is telling me that it is -17....bbrrrrrr. I headed up to the barn first thing this morning to fetch the bunnies water bottles as they are freezing so fast now. Ya gotta love my morning barn gear...haha. Lace and boots....the neighbors must think I am a wee bit touched in the head.
Having animals in the winter can be a challenge. Rabbits will not eat, if they do not have water and of course, they need to eat to stay warm, so when it is this cold it is an endless cycle of thawing out water bottles. Up and down the stairs with those big heavy buckets. bbrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....
Now that I am back inside where it is toasty warm, I am going to play with this new spindle. The video made it look fun and I love the old antique serrated oak. Spindling this way is a bit different and after giving it a whorl........I can see I am going to have to go back and watch the online video again...LOL
As a foot note.......I removed the picture of George Bush from my blog and replaced it with a meaningful to me quote on peace. Not because I have changed my feelings about him or this war, but after reading different blog comments, I feel that peace has to begin in our hearts first and if a picture is going to cause hurt or sadness in others, then I don't want to contribute to that. ~Peace~
