or what I do when I am not working or farming …

Pass the tissues!

I have to admit I had a low point yesterday. Driving home from our new farm where I had tried weeding and using a rake and finally giving up in frustration at how little I could do, I wallowed in a little bit of self-pity. You see last Monday my dog attacked me. Except for my legs and my torso, I am covered in stitches and bite marks. My arms are shredded.
I am dealing with it! Everything works! But yesterday, not so much.

Warm Ewe Up Swap Partner Revealed!

Warm Ewe Up swap #3

I am about a week late reporting that I received my final package from my Warm Ewe Up Swap Partner. And it’s a doozy! See all that yarn? And Opal too! A sock yarn I don’t have :) And LL Sock in Vera which I have knit into Jaywalkers before but they are all threadbare and worn. I should take a pic for you.

Plus a sock book, a keychain from San Francisco (my favorite city!), a reusable grocery bag, *chocolate* and a wonderful note to let me know exactly who my partner was.

And it’s Jo Anne from San Fransisco! Thank you! You went above and beyond and I love everything. :)

I’m savin up for knitting lessons!

My swap partner was so thoughtful. She included something chicken-related, knitting-related, chocolate, yarn, some post-its with lovely flower sketches and the bank.
