Doing My Part

Well, I haven't gotten my check from George W. yet but I am taking the plunge, pulling a little money out of savings and have ordered a Sonata from Bubba's. It should be here sometime this week.

With all this fun activity with my new spinning/weaving friends, I realized during my last outing that loading my precious Symphony in and out of my car is really quite a trick and probably isn't all that good for her. Then, when we went camping over Memorial Day I found myself really wishing for my wheel (I had a spindle with me, but only the one with cotton and while it's a neat trick to spin cotton on a drop spindle, it's not relaxing to me yet).

I have folks now asking about spinning lessons and I figure I actually out to get serious about this.

Besides, my birthday comes up the end of the month and I'm turning 49! I was traumatized when I turned 45... I just ignored 46, 47 and 48... but at 49 it means that next year I will be subjected to the BLACK decorating and all the other dreadful reminders of getting old. I think it wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't getting reminders in the mail from AARP.

Here's wishing you a Very Happy Birthday the end of this month. My 40th birthday was the worst one for me as I just adored my 30s. Turning 50 wasn't nearly as bad. Those few years after turning 40 worrying about getting old were just wasted years. :o)
