For Days

I’ve got red singles for days.


Two more bobbins full of singles to be plied, as well as two partial bobbins hanging out for the next plying session. It’s not so interesting, but it is productive. And I am really loving the fact that I am getting this done.

But today? Today is not really for spinning. Or not wool spinning. I am sipping on coffee and about to get read for a gravel bike ride. Yep, despite last week’s disaster, I am at it again. (My friend is MUCH better though, and able to go on her week-long bike trip which leaves today, much to my amazement and happiness.) I had planned for today’s ride to just be a solo ride, I figured I’d take my favorite route at my pace, and then when I’d had too much I’d just turn around and come back. But then I saw that another friend of mine is trying to get back on the bike after a long absence. She used to ride gravel as well, so I figured I’d ask, entirely expecting she’d not want to do that yet. She wanted to! So, I have a partner for my solo gravel ride. 🙂 It may not be a long or fast ride, but it will be satisfying.

And this is a good thing, because I’ve got a 40 miler planned next weekend, and can’t quit riding gravel between now and then, or it’ll all just be way harder than expected.

Miss Butterfly comes home this week and I’ve got two days off at the end of the week as well as the next Monday to spend with her and to run errands and get her prepared for high school which starts VERY soon now. It’ll be welcome time off, much needed, and I can’t wait to see Miss Butterfly. I bet I am even able to finish this red wool spin during the week!

That’s all the news from here today, have a wonderful weekend!
