Well, we had plans out and about last evening. Unfortunately, I am still recovering, and while I could have headed out last night, I got home and immediately fell asleep until Mr. Ink got home. He walked in the door looking pretty rough, and asked if we were getting ready to go. I asked him how he felt about it, and he said “I had a REALLY difficult day, and I am going to have difficult days for the rest of the week. What I would prefer to be doing is messing around with my rocks and doing backbreaking simple labor.”
Well OK then. Not how I relax, but it’s how he relaxes. We stayed home. I did feel considerably better yesterday. I had napped after work but didn’t immediately need to fall into bed at 9:30. I feel better again today, which is good because we WILL be going out to see Mr. Ink’s stepdaughter and her wife. It’s their 1 year anniversary, and it was recently her birthday. Plus, we haven’t seen them in awhile, and they have a new place to live that we want to check out too. And gifts, we want to bring them gifts for the house.
So last night I had a suddenly free night, and after wandering around the yard doing some simple chores like deadheading, weed pulling, and japanese beetle eradication, I decided it was cool enough to spin on the patio. The neighbor kids were out but I was feeling better so the extra noise was less annoying. I did some plying.
It was nice! Once Mr. Ink was done with his rock project, I told him to order food rather than cook, there’s only so much time in the day and he was exhausted. I guess I really should take a photo of the latest progress there!
It was a good and surprisingly relaxing evening, which was necessary I think. It’s nice to be finally feeling better! And rested. The best part? I did get my plying done, so I’ll be starting TdF with a fresh project on Saturday!

I am sorry you guys are so tired and not well, but glad you got an unplanned evening at home! The yarn is looking good! Love that turquoise blue. are you getting psyched for TDF now?
No. But it will come, I am sure. I think you are correct, I’ll sit down at the wheel on Saturday with my pound of green fiber, and I’ll find myself enjoying it. Also, in the past I’ve done things like not knit during TdF. I realized last night that I can very easily not commit to no knitting. Just….do some spinning every day. That’s it. Simple goal. 5 minutes, like the weeds!
that is a good goal. I prepped nine braids to combo spin, remember? I have NO intention of finishing them during TDF but I do intend to make really good progress on them. Something every day. 🙂
