family ❤ summertime spun
Well, here we are… I must have blinked… because we’re suddenly half-way through the second half of August! Can you believe it?!? Yep, the days are definitely getting shorter. 😦 Daytime highs are still hanging-in, up there… Overnight lows are beginning to dip a bit, though. These days, we’re lovin’ sleeping under the covers with the windows open to the crisp night air. Still, wouldn’t it be great to have a summertime “pause” button right about now?
For me, summer is the one season that is always too short. This is especially true since we moved here. Around here, that “other” season hogs half the year by blanketing us in that fluffy 4-letter-word (which shall remain nameless) that falls from the skies! Then there’s those messy spring and fall seasons, which tend to stir up an unsettled mix of weather through most of the rest of the year. Thus, in my effort to make the most of the past several weeks, it appears that my blog has been left napping in the sun… I hope you don’t feel forgotten!
Oh, but thank goodness for facebook, right? Interacting with you on my Knitting With Heart facebook page is a quick way to have some good ol’ fibrous fun! It’s been fun for me, anyway… and I hope for you too 🙂 Thank you for joining me here, and there, from everywhere! ❤
Continuing from my previous post, Helen’s visit was sure a lot of fun! Upon her arrival, one of the first things she noticed was my spindle (tucked behind a living room chair). She asked, “what’s that?” (in her non-crafter-yet-highly-intrigued voice). “That’s my turkish drop spindle from Knit Picks”, I said… then demonstrated how I’ve been spinning newsprint into yarn. Unbeknownst to us, my husband was inspired to point the iPad our way for a quick clip. Had it BEEN known to us, I’d at least have not worn my glasses on my chin… yeesh!!! . . . NOTE: in his quest to capture an impromptu moment, he did not (for fear of incessant re-takes, no doubt) divulge his efforts until later… lol … And so it’s not skydiving, but it is a fun memory! Besides, the recycling of paper into yarn does lend itself toward a favourable, earth-friendly view. It’s just from a different perspective than skydiving 😀
Now let us raise our spindles in a toast to the clear blue summer sky!
It’s always summer somewhere, right?!? ❤ Jackie
