One more day before the kids are set free for summer. One more day before I actually have to have plans (and, oh, I have plans.. but they’re not entirely organized yet). One more day to make sure we have all the phone numbers and contact details to keep the boys in touch with their friends over the summer. One more day.

Another point form post, as I’m feeling a bit disjointed as I get back to routines — despite being more relaxed than I’ve been in months:

I am amazed at the sheer quantity of commercial woolen yarn I own, not to mention the (at least)  10 kg of roving I have for spinning. And then there’s the fabric..

Whoa, Nelly! I’ve got to start working my way through the backlog–likely through smaller projects to list on Etsy, but maybe I’ll start building up some stock and try my hand at a craft fair this year. You know–“live dangerously” and all that. I’ve listed a couple things in the last week or so, but they don’t even make a dent. Oy.
