let it snow ,let it snow, let it snow!
what an awesome snow storm!!!! glad i stayed home- it started out so innocently tuesday morning-we had our morning walk and it was barely coming down. by the time we made it home there was an inch or two on the ground-it was acummulating fast. we had tons of errands to do in town that day-but i chose to stay home as i hate driving curvy mountain roads when it's snowy- hey- i learned to drive in February in wisconsin-may i say this- flat!!!! may i say this- no curves-were' talking straight flat farm roads for miles on end!!!! when i lived in minneapolis-i didn't have a car-i rode my bike or took public transportation. so i do get all nervous driving these snowy roads-and our driveway is steep and curvy.-which we are now totally unable to get out-even with 4-wheel drive. i needed to go to the post office today and music lessons tonight-but as dylan says-"we ain't a goin nowhere." now the bummer thing about homeschooling is-snow days don't exist. we still gotta do our work-but the kids are going crazy to sled down our fabulous driveway-so i lighten our load and let them play. and play they did! our property is so steep-we almost lost them a few times!!! unfortuanately our dryer is broken so i couldn't dry and warm their snow clothes thru out the day. i hope to get a sledding video up in the next few days-but it will take some technical doing on my part.
so- my computer is being possessed right now -don't know if you can see it but i can-it's typing in blue and underlining the words-and it won't stop-shit, whenever i try and underline something it won't-i'm getting pissed. i hate when other entities take over my computer!!
anyway-(it stopped!!!!) i have some photos of my recent dyeing adventures: soon to be available on my etsy site. lovely soft merino!!!
i know i know- can't i ever do any other colors? i just love these- but i did use up some raspberry dye that was explosive-i hope it mellows when i spin-put your shades on:
ouch! that hurts!!!
for those of you who have inquired(thanks!)-ruth is doing somewhat better-still in the laundry room-and no clue what is up-after all my reserch. i continue to put echinecea and vitamins in her water. i'm sure the other gurls would love to be in the laundry room too:lucy says-"hey-where'd everyone go?"well, it's bedtime story time-gotta go. enjoy life and snow-we are suppose to get more!!!!
