They raise the roof.”

Jay’s Pun-A-Day Calendar

Another windy, rainy start to the day and I heard that there is a winter storm warning too.

It’s nearing the end, so let’s see, if we go with what the groundhog said, we have 3 weeks or less to go before the weather gets more springlike? I can do it! I just heard on the news that we may be in for a cyberattack. Make sure that your antivirus software is up to date. You don’t want to miss my posts, right? 😉

I can’t believe that I overlooked the significance of yesterday’s date. Tuesday, 2/2/22. Did you? I saw a few posts here and there and there were even twins born at our local hospital. That’s pretty amazing. Anything interesting happen to you yesterday to mark the date?

I tended the herd early in the day, while there was a break in the rain. I walked the fence to make sure it all looked good and it did. There’s so much to see on a fence check walk. I need to do it more often. Like this fallen log. I’m just leaving it where it is. It looks like a rain spout and a nice home for some little creature. The fence seems fine. We even had a few visitors yesterday. Madison started a new job and needed some peace and quiet-she’s working from home and Jack has resumed working in his workshop, so he brought the buddies along with him. Here’s Carrot watching his big brother check out the woods. There are so many opportunities now. Madison is doing marketing for an insurance company using her wonderful innate skills that she honed with the coffee company and through the years as a New School grad, and Jack is combining his love of music, building, and high tech, to make custom pedals for musicians. It’s a pretty exciting time to be an independent artist these days. There are so many niches to any one field.

I spent yesterday inside doing paperwork. So did Jay. He’s tied to his computer because if you’ve read this for awhile, you know that he has taught me, how things that occur on the world stage affect the market at large. As an investor, right now, the situation is pretty volatile. If you don’t think it will affect you, just check out gas prices or look at store shelves. What products and services do you use? Have you had to switch? Are they still available? Has the company been bought by another? Closed? I have to think of it in simple ways like that to understand the bigger picture. What’s happening locally is pretty much affected by the world situation.

One thing I can tell you though-we’ll always have fiber for you! I’ll be teaching a class on “Fiber to Fabric” in March at the Cambria County Community Arts Center starting in March, if you are interested. I’ll also be at the Raggz Fiber Affair in Delmont on March 5. More details to come.

Yesterday was a great day for catching up on my paperwork. Today looks like it will be the same. There was no hooping last night. Can you believe that Dawn wanted to take a vacation to a sunny location? She did leave us links to previous classes, so I will definitely be doing a few to keep up my skills. She’s actually going to brush up on some new skills of her own so will come back with new ideas and moves. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with. Please! No more back rolls or the other one. Though maybe she’ll learn a way to explain it so that my brain gets it. She usually does. She explains things in multiple ways so we all get those aha moments. THAT’S what makes her such a great teacher. It’s not about hooping at all. Come to a class with me when she comes back and you’ll see.

Now to get back to what I did yesterday during the day. Here’s a mushroom from yesterday’s walk. They are beautiful but I would not dare eat them. I can’t identify mushrooms. If you can. This spanned about 4″ wide and I took a picture of the top and underneath. Well, I want to get this paperwork completed so that I can do other things. Like fiber! The alpacas have started their day, so on I’ll get with mine. Thanks for reading!

In the meantime, do something you’ve never done before. Find your passion and explore it. Every single day is a gift. I’m off to tend my passion.

Have a blessed day!
