Update!.. SNOW!!! ...Need photos!....

As usual a lot has happen in a few days. We had SNOW for the first time on our property, that we have seen ( I have never seen snow). It was really beautifully, falling like soft little feathers from heaven. I do have some photos of Rex and Lucky covered with snow flakes on there noses and bodies and a photos of the little ones, Sarabie, Abbey and Jatzie looking up into the sky wandering what was that stuff falling and if it was eatable. I was a bit late for work but it was very enjoyable just standing outside looking at the snow softly falling to the ground.

We picked up our new Ute, a Mazda BT50 Freestyle, it is lovely to drive and the fuel economy is much better than our old Ute. We should be saving about $200 a month in fuel. Dave hasn't driven it yet, his plaster comes off his arm next week, then he will have to start physio. We are way behind in making customer orders because of his accident and I'm trying not to take on any new orders, which has been a little frustrating.

Adam and Megan have been making plans for there wedding in October, they only want something small and personal, just immediate family and close friends. The weather should be good and the gardens should be at there best. I can't wait, Adam and Megan make a loving couple and it will be nice to see them joined together in marriage.

I bought a white Mulberry tree and haven't planted it yet, not enough daylight time at the moment. I need to buy two apple trees as well as more newspaper for my No-Dig Garden, I'm hoping to get it organized before next month. The weeds are starting to take over my garden at the moment because it has been unattended since Dave had the car accident. I'm also really longing to get started on my wool spinning, I do have a couple fleeces and there is a spinning club in town and I am so tempted to go there for a few hours but then other things might suffer, I'll have to wait for another time (maybe when I'm old and in a nursing home)
Next post I will have photos of all these things , hopefully!

What kind of fleeces do you have?
I know how to knit on a round or straight loom, not the needles yet. And I recently learned how to process wool. But the spinning part is going to require a long learning curve for me.
The wheel wants to go one way, you're trying to focus on the foot pedal, the fleece and the spinning wheel and trying to make it all go smoothlessly. I've always been told that hand spinning is sort of zen-like. But I am not there yet. haha!

Snow? In July??!
Oh that's right it's winter in Oz, eh?
It was 97 degrees here in New Mexico today.

I took up spinning last year and love it. Found a great teacher who made it all very easy to learn. Definitely try it before you are in that nursing home.

Thankyou twinville and belovedgoddess for looking at my blog and for your interest in spinning. I have a couple of fleeces in storage from a black sufolk and a farmer/neighbour that has super fine merinos. My spinning skills are still at the learning stage but I know there is a club in town that a lot of ladies go to and I am keen to go to. I think once you get started there is no looking back and it will be wonderful to grow,spin,knit and wear your own jumper, WOW!
