I finished the first bobbin of greens this morning:

Then I decided to work straight into the double marl of the light and dark for the next bobbin.

I like it SO much better! I may even double marl the rest of the bobbins. It’s so pretty! And so much better blended.

We are having a nice slow weekend here. It’s one of those weekends where you aren’t sure if it’s going to rain or not, and it rains in fits and starts. I went for a walk yesterday, the rain started when I was furthest from home, but didn’t continue. When I got home, Mr. Ink was mowing in between rains, so I helped him with that. Good thing too, as it had begun to rain again when we had about 1/4 of the lawn left.

Today he was out there messing up my lawn.

He’ll be planting a nice tree there, but just as soon as he finished digging this hole, the rain began to come down hard and sideways. So, now he’s got a mess of wet dirt saved to place elsewhere, and a muddy nasty large hole with no tree in it. Hopefully it’ll clear again shortly.

I’ve got a bunch more plants to plant, and plants to move around, but until it quits raining and I can drown the slugs in some beer, I dare not plant them, so they are sitting around on our outdoor table just waiting for an evening lacking in rain.

It’s a quiet weekend here, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
