Help, I’ve fallen off the blogging-wagon and it’s really hard to get back on! 😉 Since I got back from Knitting Camp (which was a blast as usual) it seems like things have been flipping back and forth between busy and totally crazy.
Some progress on The Project – now there are shelves in my office/studio closet (though they have to come back out to be stained/sealed), but what seemed like it an awkward corner turned out to be perfect for spinning wheel storage. I also got my Jensen double-treadle wheel out of storage and gave her a good cleaning and oiling – isn’t she gorgeous? Still spins beautifully too. I think this corner may be her permanent home, but not sure about that yet.
In the crazy weather department, we heard a very loud boom one day, the power blinked off briefly, so only thought was “gee, that was close!” Later when Toby & I went for a walk I saw how close – it split a big cedar tree just a couple hundred feet down the road from the house – whew!
The one hot pepper I planted plant (tag says it’s a cowhorn cayenne) has been growing like mad – almost like a zucchini. We’ve even given some away.
One of our daughters & her family came over shortly after Camp, and we put our son-in-law to work helping cook dinner to break in the new kitchen. Mary & I moved stuff from the old pantry into the new one (and I can actually find most of it) so good progress there!
