Positively Annoying

“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.” ~Herm Albright

With deep snow the sheep are getting their fleece washed off so that I don't have as much work after they are sheared.

Soon these will not be languishing in my yard full of distant memories but once again become viable  products.
The gray shetland is near completion.  I thinking of making a shawl on the triloom.  I am going back and forth if I should dye some and weave it or leave it gray and knit a lace edge.  Actually I have enough to do both so only time limits will tell. 

Today I finish off an inside job of painting a room.  Tomorrow the man and I buy what I need to start my seeds.  By Sunday the seeds will be a week green will be popping up all over.  And they need to be because......
