Surfacing

I’m surfacing for a moment from the business that has consumed my days.

First off, I want to wish my dear friend Marian happy birthday today; hop on over and send a happy thought her way.

Between the long, late dinners with friends and humid, lazy days that seem to speed by in a blink, there has been some spinning….

Spun to 1400 yards of two-ply with Laminaria in mind.

There has been some knitting too…

Brown Sheep Cotton Fine, “Silver Plum” (a very difficult hue to photograph)

There has also been a lot of wood splitting, preparing for the winter despite the heat of summer.

I’m learning how, and getting better with the ax. Very proud.

I’ve found a good wild patch and done a whole lot of berry picking.

I’ve probably picked about 5 pounds total so far, and the season isn’t even in full swing yet.

With so much fresh, wild fruit, there has, of course, been jam making.

7 of the 10 jars I have left after gifting; pies were also made and summarily consumed.

Can you blame me for not blogging?

I’ll be around again soon – the rest of our week is predicted to be rainy.

  1. It’s that time of year – berries and jam, and wood-splitting/stacking. You know the old adage about heating with wood. Keeps you warm twice, once to split it, once to burn it. 🙂

  2. I LOVE blueberries! It’s going to take some convincing to make me believe it will ever be cold again. It’s SOO hot here! Great handspun, too!
