A lot has happened since I wrote last so I'm going to tackle it in small chunks.
So, last Saturday I had these lovely people here!
It was wonderful to see Shannon
She knew I was sick so took it upon herself to bring refreshments and flowers. We had an impromptu knitting group all afternoon with everyone who came by.
And I don't know how I've lived my whole life without meeting Kim Werker (that's Humphrey, the tour mascot, she's holding)! She is a delightful person. She mentioned that she'd meant to learn to spin on this trip but hadn't managed to yet. Oh, I said, all innocence, well let me show you! She'd done some spindle spinning so it was a very short amount of time before she was making legitimate yarn on a wheel. It is only a matter of time before she gets one (quiet, evil laughing).
In other news, it has become almost impossible to get a candid picture of Wanda in the house. She hears the camera turn on and this is what happens:
"I'm ready for my close-up."
In my next post, I will discuss why it is a bad idea to tell a fourteen-year-old that you will buy him any size pumpkin he wants as long as he can pick it up and carry it.
