I could get used to this

I went up to my parent’s house yesterday to feed their cats (they went to Paris!) and do my taxes. I go up there every few weeks for dinner but it was different spending a day doing ordinary around-the-house things like laundry and taxes. I forgot how much I enjoy the peace and quiet. After all these years living in cities (some of them large and noisy–that would be you 118th and amsterdam..) I still think I could be very happy living in the country.

The wisteria were just starting to bloom!

She Spins!

Suzie is all fixed and ready to go. I still dont really know what I am doing spinning-wise but at least I have a working spinning wheel.

There were two broken parts from the accident (UPS dropped Suzie, maybe off of a forklift). The broken drive mechanism had to be ordered from Majacraft in New Zealand but it didnt take too long to get here. The broken baseboard was repaired by a carpentry enabled friend (thanks!!) and looks good-as-new. The wheel only ended up costing me the price of replacement parts if you dont count the years of life I lost due to stress over it. Im not sure it was worth it. Im so happy to have it all resolved!

On another happy note, since I didnt end up spending all that money on a spinning wheel I decided I would buy another toy instead – perfect for our upcoming trip to Utah.

Here is a gratuitous photo of Apollo with the new camera!

Words cant do this justice

Except maybe moo-oo-oo-oooo.

The best thing Ive heard in quite a while

You need to hear it to believe it

Not your ordinary day

I had lunch with a Nobel Laureate yesterday!

And all anyone wanted to ask him was what it was like to go to the academy awards…..

That doesnt happen everyday!
