10 on Tuesday

I really had to sit and ponder a bit about this topic.  I came to the conclusion that I don't move around so much!  So I give you the 10 Thresholds I Cross Every Day

1.  The bedroom into the hallway.  On some days.  Some days I fall asleep while knitting on the couch and stay there.
2.  I cross from the living room into the bathroom.  My tiny bathroom.  With the dog who insists I may disappear if he doesn't go in there with me.  
3.  Then I go from the bathroom (with the dog following close behind me) into the kitchen.  I fill up his water bowl then go into the
4.  Dining area.  His food is in the cabinet in there.  He gallops behind me as we go into the 
5.  Living room.  His big old feeding area is there.  Then I wait 36 seconds for him to finish his breakfast and we go out
6.  Onto the deck.  Some days I sit and have an ice iced coffee and knit while he runs around.  Some days (during the week usually) we are back inside to we can
7.  Get ready for work and then we cross from the kitchen into the front entryway (tiny mudroom) and then
8.  Out the front door.  And we are off to work!
9.  I walk into the building into the reception area.
10.  And then I finally land in my office.  I stay there most of the day and get up to move around a bit.  My office is pretty big and has a nice window that opens and I knit at lunchtime so I can stay put and be happy. 

And there you have it.  Sort of.  If I want to get specific - my house is an open floor plan.  The kitchen, living room and dining room don't really have thresholds, but for this ToT we will pretend they exist.   

Come join us over at Carole's.

Another weekend flew on by...

-we enjoyed a lovely dinner at our favorite restaurant and enjoyed the view above as we ate
-spinning with the girls at the Portsmouth 4H Fair
-spinning - lots and lots of spinning
-always a bit of knitting
-a tiny bit of shopping
-visits from family and friends
-went through my stash of shawls to see what I could give to the shawl collection that Wendy and Sheila    over at Knit1HeartToo are helping out with.  You can win some neat prizes as well as pass along (or even  knit) a shawl you don't use anymore to somebody who could use it.
-got ready for the upcoming week

Yarn Along

It's been mostly spinning.  Which will eventually lead to lots of knitting.  I'm spinning the fourth of six bumps of fiber so it's going along well.  I look forward to getting on my wheel at the end of the day.  It's so relaxing.

I'm still reading Beach Street Knitting Society and liking it so far.  I'm anxious to finish because I have a couple of other books on my list.

What's going on in your fiber world?

Ten on Tuesday

This week Carole's Ten on Tuesday was to pick a piece of furniture and write 10 things about it.  I thought about it and realized that the most used piece of furniture in my house these days is....my camping chair
1. Is used for everything but camping. I haven't gone camping in a couple of years.  I'm trying to convince hubby we need a camper. He's not going for it.  
2. It's where I sit to spin. Inside and out. 
3. I also knit there too. It's seriously the most comfortable chair and the perfect height.
4. It has the coolest little table attached to it. 
5. It has tons of pockets on the side.
6. It's super light.  Which is why I take it everywhere with me.
7. I bought it at Harbor Freight to use for spinning outings. 
8. The darn car has put holes in the bottom of it. Brat. 
9. It looks like a folded up wheelchair when I have it in the car which kinda scares me.
10.  It's not the original one I wanted.  They sold a nice fancy one at TG Maxx that was all pink and pretty and had a strap.  But sadly they were out of stock last year.  So I have this one.  And I'm pretty happy with my chair.

Where Did The Week Go?

I hope the upcoming weekend doesn't fly by as quickly as this week did. It was a busy one for me at work. Which means by the time I get home in the evening I don't have much brain power left. Thank goodness I don't need much of that for spinning!  With the perfect weather I have been sitting outside with my wheel. And look what I found in bloom?

I snapped a quick pic with my phone but I can't wait to take my camera out there and get some nice shots. Speaking of cameras - I am taking a photography class with Franklin Habit on Sunday up in Boston. It's called "Photographing Your Fiber".  I have heard wonderful things about his class so I'm really excited about it. 

Have a great weekend!
