I'm tired....


Previous Entry I'm tired.... Mar. 5th, 2006 @ 08:02 pm Next Entry
so tired...the estimate at 4 pm was 40,000 people. I have no idea - I know a lot of them came by to watch ritaspins37 and I spin. It was a blast, though!

Let's see....I garnered a couple of indecent proposals, 1 or 2 almost decent proposals, and a large "THANK YOU" from the US Navy. *gg* (No, really - I was outside de-hairing myself, and a sailor came by and thanked me on behalf of the US Navy.) The most indecent was yesterday (the starting with a backrub, ending with hands down the back of my bodice incident. Ick.)

I scored 2 full paper grocery sacks of Pyr hair from the local rescue group - and spent quite a bit of time spinning it today - some of it with a donor beside me. It was a big draw - first, no one believed I was spinning Dog fur, second because there was a very large, very fuzzy white dog next to/in front of me happily contributing more fuzz for my wheel. The finished yarn will be given back to the rescue group to be knit/crocheted into something they can auction off. Win/win - I get free fuzz to spin, they get something they can turn into ready cash.

I also ended the "feud" with Clan Keith - I think. *g* My Pendragon bodice clinched it, I think (that was one of the semi-decent proposals.)

Got to meet magnoliamoon. Her son is very cute! Both she and ritaspins37 need to keep their menfolk, I think - they both seem like *really* good guys!

Got a lot of spinning done - but I'm tired. My BIL is supposed to be here later (we'll probably be asleep, but oh well) to build me a deck tomorrow and Tuesday. *yawn* 'night!

Cute but evil *G*

and my husband kept sayin 'Do you wanna go back in and hang out with your friend? She seemed very nice.'

I was grateful that he seemed receptive to the me getting a wheel and spinning, before he would roll his eyes, but I guess seeing things come from it makes it different

I'm glad we got a chance to meet up!

I really wish I could have stayed longer yesterday - but the kids were due back home at 5:30. Your DH would have been intrigued by the mechanics of the wheel, I think - he might have gone ahead and ordered one for you last night, even! *g* (males tend to be fascinated by the physics of the wheel, for some reason.)

That roving I was spinning from yesterday was $28 for 10 ounces, not 4 ounces. Big difference! Not so bad after all. They don't always have a great selection of colors there at any given time.
