Home to almost summer

Down my dry driveway just after 1pm on Wednesday, big load of stuff in car, spinning wheel, suitcase, puter and groceries both from Freddies in states and produce and 2 flats water and such from Williams Lake. Lucas came on school bus with note from his parents allowing him to get off here, he had car unloaded in the usual 10 minutes. I then took him home $20 in his pocket.

Whidbey was OK in that I got to see lots of people that I only see there, but it is a lot of effort, and I did get tired, would return to motel and have a quick 30 minute nap, then check email and knit. Only thing I bought was a small bunch of bright colored roving for Denise and 3 more of the little Folca cases. Assorted shots from Whidbey, several early before people starting arriving.

Home until this Wednesday when I head back into town for various errands on Wed then south on Thursday to Cache Creek for spring Desert Mesa. Wasn't at all sure I would be able to do DM but Whidbey trip showed me that as long as I pace myself will do just fine. And CC is just a couple of hours south of Williams Lake, will spent Wed nite up at Denise & Lens then slowly down to CC.

Life is good.


  1. Life IS good!!! So glad you had a good trip. Also so sorry I missed you. Thank you again for the nice treat.

  2. It's always a treat to get to visit with you as you journey south, Lynne. I'm glad you made it home safe and sound, and that you discovered you had the endurance for the trip. Desert Mesa should be a breeze compared to driving all the way to Whitby Island.

  3. I love seeing the spinning pix- admiring the painted red wheel designs-cool. I have an Ashford traditional but like the dark stain on it- I use this wheel for historical demos. when I am asked. But like seeing how creative people design their wheels. I use a Ladybug at the guild meetings and mostly my spinning here at home. Looks like it is a wonderful place and lots of fun to join and meet other spinners.

  4. Good neighbor kid Lucas. I'm glad you are gathering in the parts of the life you love. Here's to summer and good traveling weather! The red wheel is awesome, I've never seen anything like it. Was that rose-malling and a sheep :)

    1. Didn't talk to owner of red wheel so don't know how it was done.

  5. So happy to hear that you had a good trip. So very sorry that I missed you though I had to cancel at the last minute because my darling son was so sick. Hopefully though I will get to see you before the year is out if you make it down south any time soon.
