A couple of things: spinning is work, especially if you’re a newbie. My treadle leg is tired today. It also seems to have a steep learning curve. I’ve been practicing and just this morning felt like I might be getting a handle on it, at least the treadling part. If my hands are going correctly, I forget to treadle. If my treadling is working, I forget about my hands. But I think I’m improving….maybe…..just a little. I’d taken a pic of my first (presentable) yarn – all one yard of it, but Flickr apparently is having a snit and won’t let me upload. I’ll try again later. What a brat.
OK, Flickr is back in my good graces.
We have tickets for tomorrow morning for a Kindersong performance and I personally am pretty jacked up about it. I think it will be right up Babydiva and the Papoose’s alley, with lots of audience participation and familiar songs. One of the coolest things is that Kindersongs is a husband and wife team, they’re local and before they launched Kindersongs, Mr. Kinder was a teacher and taught music to both Bigmommy and Babydaddy. I think it’s really neat that my kids have a link to them and now, their kids will have one too. Of course, any time we spend with the grands is precious and they’re just now getting to the age where they like to actually do things, and love to take part in anything musical and/or silly. I hope we can get some pics.
Our shoot at the beach turned out to be fabulous. As soon as I can get a DVD burned, I’ll be posting some vacay pics. What a difference a pro photog makes! The weather cooperated (yay) and in a couple, everyone is actually looking in the same direction. Do you know how hard it is to get three babies to look at the same thing? One was always throwing sand, one was always eating sand and one simply got sick and tired of having her picture taken. Kudos to the photographer! Oh, I almost forgot, all our clothing matched, thanks to Bigmommy and Babymama. I was a little skeptical about that, but it really turned out well. I’ll start listening to their suggestions more, maybe.
SUMPIN’S GOTTA GIVE
I decided today to put a lot of my projects on the backburner and concentrate on just one or two things. Today, especially, I’ve felt a little overwhelmed; I want to work on everything but end up frustrated because I can’t seem to concentrate long enough to anything but screw up, much less finish something. Knitting and reading – still in the game. Everything else – in time out for at least a few days, until I can get my feet back under me. Pinterest will be the death of me, I swear.
