Daily Reflections From My Window

April 22, 2021 Thursday: Earth Day?


“Earth’s crammed with heaven…

But only he who sees, takes off his shoes.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Is today Earth Day? ya got me?

I woke up to snow today. It flurried on and off yesterday but not much stuck and the alpacas weren’t too bothered. Still in full fleece for a few more weeks, they’re nice and toasty. Here they are this morning.

Here’s Hammy yesterday with just a light dusting of snow and Flo looking on. As soon as the weather warms up, I’ll start working with them a bit more. I have to admit that I haven’t been doing much of that. I pretty much feed them and care for their needs but have been so busy with other things that they haven’t had my full attention. I think I’m more efficient when I am super busy.

I’m working on some projects for Raggz Fiber Affair this weekend. Like this guy that I’ve had under construction for years. I may finally finish him up! I was in a panic thinking that I don’t have enough. Believe me, I do! In addition to fiber in all stages and forms, I have lots of odds and ends. I’m excited to see what people think of my sock collaboration with Denise Williams. They are in the upper right corner of the rack. So far, my testers (the family) love them!

I have lots of this rug yarn too. Jackie, your rug is on the loom!

Dryer balls, dyed locks, dyed roving and lots more! Just getting it all organized and marked is my challenge. The sky is turning blue! May not be the warmest day but it looks pretty. Oh dear. It just started to snow again. Time for breakfast and then to work. I have a lot to finish up today because tomorrow, I’ll be packing everything up into my car. My good friend Barb Sebastian has offered to help me out on Saturday and I’m looking forward to our day together! She’s a lot of fun!

In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home but if you MUST go out, wear a mask and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.

Have a blessed day!
