When I last wrote, we’d just placed our 7th foster dog in the home of Miss Butterfly’s father. The very next day we left on a road trip. We drove to PA to visit my parents, both of whom are vaccinated. (I am also vaccinated.) We spent 4 days with them, then turned around and drove one of my parents’ cars back, as they had so kindly given it to Miss Butterfly. Fury dog went with us and really enjoyed the trip. We did too! It was good to be able to travel safely and see my parents as it was going on two years since I saw them last.
Upon our return, our state opened vaccinations for ages 16 and up, so the rest of my family promptly got vaccinated and we are so joyful to report that in a few weeks, after dose 2, we’ll be a fully vaccinated family!
We’ve been waiting on our next foster dog who arrives this evening so there will likely be some photo opportunities and a blog post about that. Foster dog time is always a busy time, and this little gal is younger than we usually choose so I know we’ll be extra busy. But I look forward to the chaos a foster brings. I am hoping we will find her a perfect home as soon as possible!
I have not been knitting at all really, but I have done a fair amount of spinning. A project I’ve worked on for months now is some singles on my support spindles from fiber Miss Marja created for me. I finally finished the singles and got the yarn plied. I did a 2 ply laceweight yarn and I ended up with over 1500 yards of yarn!
The skein is massive and the color absolutely gorgeous. It’ll just go into stash until I begin to knit again.
In my other spare time, I’ve been trying to gather the items we will need for a white water rafting wilderness trip this summer. Since camping far away from our car and civilization isn’t something we do very often, there are a few items we need to pick up to bring along. The trip is months off still, but there’s nothing that would stress me more than trying to find those items in the correct sizes at the very last minute.
So, that’s a bit of an update from us, how are you doing? How is the vaccine roll out in your state? It’ll be a beautiful day when we finally are able to get this pandemic set behind us.
