"no chickens in the bed!"

mother nature must have read my pissy blog entry because the temperature went down by about 20 degrees since then! wow! what a difference-i had to put the feather comforter back on the bed-after sleeping with nothing but a sheet for covers. crazy i tell you!

liam's hen-kamakaze has always been very social-in fact she tries to get in the house all the time. the boys always leave the door open so i always find evidence of her and the other girls coming in the house.it's not so bad when they leave these little gifts on the linoleum, but on the carpet-that's a different story. i start yelling "no chickens in the house!" but then i started finding kama in the house with the door closed. hmmm? what the? then i started finding her on our bed. i realized she has figured out how to come in thru the cat door! can you believe it? i got a couple of seconds of it on video but then my camera went out of memory-damn! of all the times. i'll try and post it anyway................ oops! sorry! can't seem to upload the video-i'll keep trying.

now i'm yelling-"No chickens in the bed!!!!"

been doing some dying-not many pictures though-here's a bit: buttery soft merino!here it is plied and complete:i over-dyed some very very pale pink yarn i spun up and wasn't quite happy with the color-here it is now:much better. i had some of the green and raspberry left over -so i mixed them together for a fun color experiment.--i'm sure many of you who know anything about color theory are thinking-is she nuts? she just mixed pink and green together!!!! i of course love the outcome-and am spinning it now. sorry no pics right now-will post later.

i had a great rainy-yes rainy day today(my favorite weather-i love that song by garbage-"I'm only happy when it rains.") anyway- my friend lynn and i went to the farm store today-remember where "insulator" got his new home-to spin for a special memorial day celebration. i actually sold 2 skeins of yarn-i wasn't expecting to sell anything-so i was happy. i got a crock of local butter too!i have much more to post about but i'm ignoring the family again and need to get off this time sucking device-later!

Your outcry reminds me of the childrens book - No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed! I wouldn't want chickens either. Your colors are wonderful - I especially like the green. That's my favorite anyway.

The chicken in bed is absolutely the cat's meow! Woops -- guess that isn't appropriate language in front of chickens!

The weather has turned right nippy hasn't it!

Watch out for eggs! That butter looks like it's delish. I love farm fresh food.

that hen looks very comfy on the bed...she is a determined one, eh? can't wait to see the pink and green yarn outcome, the purple overdye looks great, as does your other newly spun yarn! wow....can't wait to try it myself!

I love the chicken in the bed! I think my husband would freak out if I let the chickens in the bedroom. It already makes him crazy that I let one of our chicks hang out on my shoulder :).

I love the crock of butter!
