This is August 9. August is always a very hot, very dry, very air conditioner kind of month.
It has been raining for about a week now. I mean we have had lots of thunderstorms with lightening and thunder and wind. I pick up dead limbs out of the yard every morning. By mid afternoon the sun will peek out a little bit, and the humidity zooms to "air you wear". I turn on the a/c at that point. Until then I can tolerate the warmness and moistness.
Well, we did have snow in May! Why not rain in August?
I have been spinning the BFL blend that I bought in Kellyville. It works up fast, it looks gorgeous, and I love it. I am on the second bobbin of the second skein. I started on Sunday. Wow! It is nice.
I sold my little Norwood loom to a new weaver in Cabot. I am delivering it in Russellville tomorrow. I am sad at my decision, but it is a good one. I don't know why I am grieving so much. I haven't really woven anything in a long, long time. It just means I have to move on.
I do spend most of my time with my spinning and knitting. Occasionally I wander into the back room to sew.
I hate being a grown-up! I have to make big decisions and then I move on.
My neighbor has been using his son's tractor to move dirt from my pile to his yard. Now I have a muddy mess in the back yard. I try not to think too much about it. The rain has kept him from finishing up the job. I know he will clean up the mess once it is dry enough. It is just awful to look out there first thing in the morning.
I have been watching movies on Netflix this week while spinning. I finished one yesterday that was Australian. I would never go to the movie theater to see it, but it was good.
Well, I am off to the grocery store for my weekly shopping. Just wanted to grouse some about the weather. I am beginning to get used to the idea of rain every day. Feels really tropical around here. Where's the beach?
