Life goes on.

Life has a way of jumping right into your face and frightening the fiber right out of you.
It also has a way of embracing you and guiding you gently into your next day.

I am ready for more.

Of course - I will be dyEing wool today. Carding too. Ah .... I love a New England winter!!

Diesel is tired of the snow at this point. While we 'snow-plow' a whole path for him so he can easily do his 'business' ... the old back legs just aren't what they used to be. He is a big dog, with a nice, high clearance ... but, he is more cautious & slower when he deviates from his path. He is 11 - and recently I saw an adjusted dog-age table that suggests due to his size, in reality, he is 86 years old. WOW - that was a shocker. Here I was thinking he is a mere 77.

Needless to say - he is still hoping he will get your
How can any spinner resist THIS shot??
