A new toy, a baby's surprise & a treat for me...

My "Three Beautiful Things" Tuesday has gotten a little off track lately, but I'm still looking for beautiful things all the time -

Did you watch the Emmy awards? I didn't - there aren't very many beautiful things on TV - but one of my favorite actresses - Sally Field got Best Actress in a Drama. She plays the mom in my favorite network TV show, Brother's and Sisters - she has really worked hard over the years - I really liked her in Murphy's Romance with James Garner -it is a sweet romantic film (OK, it's a Chick Flick - with a capital C) And I hope I look that good when I'm 61 - (must be the Boneva - ha, ha)

Anyhow, I digress. Getting back to Three Beautiful Things -

  • Guess What! I found a used drum carder to buy – It’s a good brand – Louet – at a pretty economical price. I’m checking it out tomorrow! This will make it easier for us to process our own fleeces (and to be able to process fun things I’ve found at past Black Sheep Gatherings).
  • Watching the surprised look in the blue eyes of my co-workers new baby as she wakes up in our office (What strange place is this, she thinks…and who are all these people looking at me? What could they want?)
  • Using my Black Angus Restaurant coupon and getting their Cheesy Garlic Bread Steak Sandwich for lunch. I used my time wisely and sat there and wrote stories for future blog posts – just for you. And the sandwich? – it was yummy!

Good Golly, Miss Molly, I missed "Talk Like a Pirate Day"

Aargh, matey, how coulda that happened?

Shiver me timbers (what ever that means...)

Those are lovely beautiful things. I hope the drum carder is all you hope it will be. I also love watching babies watch the world. I like how you spend your time wisely. I try to make up limericks during the last part of my workday, when I am all alone and cleaning.

I've learned that my drum carder is a great tool for blending fibers, but for the really big job of fiber prep for an entire fleece, I've come to appreciate the "professionals."
