what's goin' on? {in pictures}

If you look closely, you can see my little chipmunk buddy on the stairs (right next to that ugly ass bush I'm allergic to). I want so much to get better pics of this little dude, as he's adorable! When I snapped this, he was grooming and keep a close eye on a couple of robins bopping around my yard.
Baby girl on her way to dance class. I really have to get a pic of her in tap shoes to share!

Our new roomie. She has kids on the way and likes to hang outside my backdoor at night. I *think* she's a sac spider.

My dreads need a root touch up but, I looove how they are looking these days! In a few weeks they will be 2!

What would you do with a ball of recycled silk Sari? Now fielding suggestions!


{Friday Fill-In}

I haven't done a Friday Fill-In for a loooong time so, here I go!

1. This is what life does. It lets you
_live, live, live_.

2.
_Why can't more people just_ appreciate the moment?

3. Upon reflection
_maybe grabbing that hot dish right from the oven wasn't so smart after all_.

4.
_I hope to live_ for quite a long time.

5. Later, you wake up
_and realize it's still dark out and there's still plenty of time to sleep_

6.
_Sail away with pirates_ to the far and boundless sea.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to
__knitting and a local band with friends_, tomorrow my plans include _going to a birthday party_ and Sunday, I want to _make love to my husband first thing in the morning_!

firsts

This is the delicious hand dyed roving I've been practicing with ...
This is what resulted from my first try at plying. It's 2 ply. No weight, as of yet...
Not too shabby!
