Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival :)

Silk Curls

Basket of Fiber :)
Oh my goodness! Yesterday my dear hubby and I went to the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby, about 2 hours from my home. It started out beautiful and sunny here in Eugene. Half way there the rain started and it didn't stop! I had never been to the fiber fest 

so I didn't know what the heck to expect. I had sandals on and my summer crop pants and a light t-shirt. We didn't take our umbrellas...... Oh well we decided we would make the best of it. After all we were out for the adventure. 
We got there and the rain kept on.... Most of the show was in two buildings, however there was a lot outside under canopies. By the time we finished in the buildings and I had bought fiber to my hearts content. The rain started to slow:) It warmed up and so did my toes. 
The fiber was abundant and I had a wonderful time just filling my heart with the sounds and smells of fiber. I found some wonderful fiber to bring home. I bought a few things that I had never spun before. 
I have Corriedale roving, BFL/Silk, BFL/Tussah, Polwarth, Silk Curls, and Angora Bunny
I am really looking forward to spinning and learning. The Angora I bought from a young girl who had 2 bunnies one white and one grey and white, she told me about how clean she kept them and that she even blew dryed them when they got hay or VM in their fur. It's beautiful! She had it all packaged so nicely in clear box's with her card on top. $5.00 for 1 oz. Thats a lot of bunny fur!!! 
My husband was so sweet he carried my basket around for me while I shopped. He even was approached by a few unsavory women who wanted to steal him to carry their goods! I told them to back away from my man, he was taken for the day! Such a good man :)

Been a While!!!!

Wow!!! I haven't posted anything for a while! Since school has started we have been on a roller coaster! 
I have been out every day pounding the pavement for work! It's Fall and my husband got laid off from his job. He only has 9 weeks left on his unemployment so here we go...... I have sent out and gone to every dental office in town. Cant give up! I have had 2 interviews, one decided to not hire any one at this time. The other only wanted part-time and I needed full time.... Oh the joy of life right now in these uncertain times!
I continue to spin and knit it helps me get through these really stress filled moments and days. 
On the flip side of all this, life does go on! The twins are playing water polo and are doing great in school. They are amazing and I thank "God" daily for the joy my children have given me!!!!

School Has started!

Well School has officially started! I realized its Friday! The twins are 16 and Juniors this year. Which means they don't even start school until the end of the week. It just seems so very strange to me to say that Friday is the first day of school. Don't ask me to explain this, we have had this strangeness all of their high school years and since we are on the last 2 there isn't a point to complain or wonder "WHY". 
As for me.... this is the first year EVER! that I have had the wonderful experience to stay home and enjoy the quietness of the house :) Happy Me :)... My plan for this day, you may ask??? Drink coffee and spin and knit>>>>>>>>>>>

Me, Myself, and My Fiber
YEAH ME! Thats what I say! Happy Days are here again. Oh I know that looking for work is so very important, but I believe that God wants me to have this day to chill. Voice of reason, YAHOO!
