I Was So Good!

We had our RVSpinKnit group meeting tonight, and tho' I've been battling major sinusitis courtesy of the unbelievable pollen levels in our area lately (would you mine praying that we get a few days of steady rain? to wash this stuff away?), I went because we wanted a good showing for David Simpson who absolutely has the most gorgeous colorways I've seen...however, I'm not a spinner and don't intend to pick up that particular (expensive) habit, as frankly I don't have enough time to do the knitting I'd like to do! But gorgeous stuff it is and if you're so inclined (or if you're interested in weaving, too, which I am almost tempted to do), please check out his site? I don't think you'll be disappointed.

But I ended up leaving early...and not spending a penny! Whee! Tho' I'm planning a small purchase this weekend - one in support of our local Community School's Strawberry Festival Fundraiser a pet project of my good pal Tanya's (yummmm Strawberry Shortcake!) but also on our local Farmer's Market where I'll hopefully find the tomato and salad plants, and herbs I'm hoping will grace my balcony garden this summer - not to mention some locally grown produce? Well, maybe not quite yet...the season's barely begun...But I surely hope to be able to work within my own definition of Birdsong's (another dear pal) Eat Local Challenge this summer. Actually, if I can manage to eat salad from my balcony garden, I'll be doing's a very small balcony that doesn't get a lot of sun...Sometimes I really do miss my house and garden...

edited on 5/5/06 for the following comment You know, this really fits more appropriately on my other blog Nana Sadie's Place so additional comments and participation in the Eat Local Challenge will be showing up there! Stop by? (((hugs)))

Yeah, you have a balcony garden too!!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you produce. I was lucky to be able to make salads from my garden last year. I'm looking forward to it again this year.

Sallee, a balcony garden is a perfect place to start! Heck, just having a nearby Farmer's Market puts you way ahead of me; the nearest one to me is 25 miles away! Have a lovely weekend, and be sure to get a few small plants of your favorite herbs, as they are sooo good fresh.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
