carried along by color

Our spinning wheels have been loaned out to friends so they can become further addicted too, so I did a little plying of Leah's singles last night to clear the bobbins. Some of this is luscious Grafton Fibers (bought in VT) and some is Fleece Artist (bought in Nova Scotia), a few more assorted batts/braids of which are waiting in the spinning stash. Mmmm...soft wool, incredible colors.
I didn't realize it last week, when I weathered a trek to mall hell (oh, the things I do for these children), but there's a gap in sizes in the Leah's sneaker stash and she was in need of fresh sneaks for some serious walking in our near future. So off we trekked again last night. We narrowed down the candidates and were able to bump some Keds off the list (since we've been through this before and they just don't fit her well) when I realized the only thing that made a particular style enticing was the charms dangling from their laces. She chose these spiffy pink and white sneaks instead and we made a couple of charms of her very own. Turtle for one foot, elephant for the other, from beadstash supplies. One happy twinkletoed Goober.

Today we're celebrating our 15th anniversary just a teensy bit. Only just a teensy bit because mostly we're working a lot today, knowing that soon we'll celebrate in style, somewhere outstanding. But we're certainly taking the time today to think back on that fantastic day and the family and friends who made it special. (Apologies for image quality -- digital snap of a photograph.)

We left our reception by hot air balloon, tossing the bouquet as we were up, up, and away. The trees that day were just about as beautiful as they are today and the future looked equally bright. Posted by Picasa
