Day 9, Really? ~ TdF 2011

My last post was only a couple days ago, but I feel like I've been gone for a long time. I can't believe we're already up to day 9 of the Tour de Fleece!

I think the reason I'm feeling time warped is because I've spent the better part of the last three days cleaning and organizing my kids' rooms. Most of this time was in my younger son's room, the family pack rat. To his credit, he can tell you the origin of every scrap of paper or little doodad. He also knows the right things to say to tug at his mother's heart strings like, "it's a memory" or "it's very important to me". Somehow, I still managed to clean and purge while holding on to the most valued items. It feels like such a major accomplishment that I've walked into his room several times today just to bask in the cleanliness.

By early evening I've been exhausted, but it's Tour de Fleece, so spin I must. This sport weight singles yarn is a mix of light and fawn alpaca, golden brown Merino, some Firestar, a little lace weight boucle yarn cut into bits and some raffia. I know the raffia is probably a weird choice, but it makes for some fun texture and after cleaning all day, I needed a little fun!

I'm psyched to have tomorrow off. I need a "me" day! I still have a pattern that I'm writing and so many other things that I want to do for Wind Rose Fiber Studio.

Even though I only committed myself to 15 minutes of spinning a day...I can never stop at that. Today will be a day to get caught up.

I wish our school year started this early. Love your son's excuses.
