Today I have been alone for most of the day (apart from the animals) this is a very rare occasion and I have had a lovely day, just doing what came to mind.
We have had showers on and off so I decided to potter off to the local weekly market to pick up some bread and some fruit, by the time I arrived home, the sun had popped its head out so I made myself a bread and cheese lunch and sat outside, admiring my flower pots that I did yesterday. Actually they didnt look that good, as the rain had flattened them and they looked a little sorry for themselves, hence no pics.
I then went to make up the beds for my son, wife and grandson, who are arriving tomorrow from England.
I am really happy as I havent seen them for over a year and I know that Ryan my 12 year old grand-son is taller than me now. Danielle my grand-daughter is not able to make it, as she has an exhibition next week at Uni I shall miss her, but will be lovely to see the others.
This afternoon I thought I had better make a start on carding my goats wool, I have two years worth of Cashmere and I am ashamed of myself for not doing it sooner.I thoroughly enjoyed it, fibres and spinning are so theraputic, and I love the smell. I thought I would card the whole lot, then it would be ready to spin when can.
It was a little rough with little bits of hay in, but I quite like that effect. I also ended up smelling a bit 'goatie' too, so earthy, I love it.
