Last the numbers

1 shalom cardigan given to my sister
2 spinning wheels
2 garbage bags of alpaca
Too much beer being consumed...
3 extra people on a trip to the home school group
4 adults on a porch watching
4 children playing
5 bikes stashed around the yard

My sister (yes that often elusive country sister...) came to visit with her family.  We spent time on the "veranda" watching the children, preparing the alpaca wool and imbibing a bit too much (it was the beer fest weekend and the husbands sadly missed their "beer for breakfast" trip since they slept too late.)  We finally sampled the Arsenal Cider House that we'd been talking about going to for a while.  Amazing.  We also went to some other locations about the city.

My sister also dropped off my grandmother's spinning wheel.  I have so many fond memories of it.  I spun it like there was no tomorrow.  It still works, but needs a bit of a hug and will be taking a quick visit to the yarn store to get some parts.

The city husband got all to used to cured meat, cheese, and cracker trays in the evening and wonders why they don't appear more often.  My sister got the shalom cardigan that I made for her.

She also got me all dolled up for an event I had to go to (obligations... oh the obligations of my husband's job) and babysat the kiddos...isn't she amazing.  She even was able to convince me I didn't look ridiculous wearing a dress and makeup and managed to get me out of the house without my hair looking like I stuck my finger in a light socket as it usually does.

Sadly, my sister's family had to leave earlier than planned due to the storm that never came (although they did get through the mountains before the snow hit there, so I guess it was a good thing they left when they did.)

Oh well, we'll have another visit soon.

  1. Spinning is on my list of things to learn when I get a bigger house. You are going to have so much fun.


Thanks for visiting with us girls...put your feet up and stay for a while.
