A Day for Spinning

Today was a great day to just sit and spin and to take it easy -lol with Lindsay home not as easy as it sounds. Still I got to listen to the radio upstairs as the wheel hummed its counterpoint to the melody. I'm awaiting the arrival of three new litters of bunnies! So i think this song pretty much sums it all up:

Today is A Ordinary Miracle Day

It’s not that usual when everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when its time to snow
You don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds in winter have their fling
And always make it home by spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
Cause we are all a part
Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle
Do you want to see a miracle?

Its seems so exceptional
Things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sun comes up and shines so bright
It disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Jared and his new sidekick

Jared has a new buddy hanging out with him these days -his cousin Brianne or Bri for short. Jared was very angry with Bri yesterday and exclaimed "Brianne I don't know your middle name Parkinson, you are so in trouble". I had to laugh. He's so darn cute sometimes.

Family fun day:)

Sunday we took the kids to the McLachlan Woodworking Museum near here -they were hosting a a Pioneer Chrsitmas day.

We had a great time -lots to see and do and I picked up some great craft ideas for school tours and demos. It was well worth the drive. The museum is on the site of the Kingston Sheep Dog Trials as well so if you care coming up this way in the summer take the time to visit there. Took a quick pic of the family -is my hubby not the handsomest man :) Although there is another very good looking young man in the photo too Jared and then there is the Diva in residence Lindsay -who did not want her picture taken as her hair was not perfect LOL.

Bright colours on a icy wintery day

"Well the weather outside is frightful but the colours here are delightful" -okay I'll stop singing now my dog is covering her ears LOL.
Jared has been loose again and he is as always amazing! Here's the latest batch 6 - 8ounce lots of corriedale dyed to perfection by the dye wizard himself.

Drop spindle Class -Sucess!

Well I taught my first drop spindle class at the local yarn shop today :) 8 new spinners have been born! Evil laugh - I have struck again heeheehee!
Took two orders for 8 ounces of handspun angora as two people wish to recreate my angora scarf for themselves :) Good thing they both wanted white and black -the german/giant kids are happy to produce lots and lots of fiber.
Also got another order for Jazzy Jared -a local knitter there dropped off 2lbs of her romney yarn to be dyed by the dye wizard himself -busy busy kid!
Of course some blond forgot to put the batteries in her digital camera before heading over but one of the students has promised to send me some of her pics.

Halloween pics at long last

Well I did take the pictures on time this year but due to an unforseen emergency (some blond idiot breaking two fingers on her left hand) the blog is seriously out of date!

Here's the kids on Halloween -Java was proud of her t-shirt that was so her "why be difficult -when you can be impossible", Lindsay was a snow lepoard and Jared was as always my little knight in shinging armour :)
We even dressed our niece Brie up as she came to visit before the tricks and treats started.
