Not enough hours.

Oh, I know it's been awhile.  I really have a good excuse.  I can't find my NEW camera!!  Now how did I do that?  It's bright pink!  But then, my old one is red, and I lost it all the time.  My friend's daughter says it's because I'm Sagitarian, and I just need to live with it.


So, I took this with my old, taped together camera.  This is my new bike, Peggy Sue.  Don't ask me why, but when I look at her, my heart sings Peggy Sue.  My old one is in back.  It's a 10 speed that is stuck in one gear.  I'd much rather have a one speed cruiser.  There are very few hills in my area here in the valley.
These two bikes will be at the Lynden Craft and Antique show this week.  I will be decorating the Food Court.  I'm leasing plants from Hi Hoe Nursery, and it's going to be awsome.  I will keep you posted, with lots of pictures.  I am also going to demonstrate spinning there for two days.  Fun, fun fun.

Speaking of spinning, this is my new Hansen Mini Spinner.  It's electric.  You can see some buttons to the right, which will put this into perspective.  IT IS AWSOME!!  I spin so much better on this than any other wheel I've ever used. It has a pedal like a sewing machine to start and stop it.  A dream.  I can't express anymore how much I love it.  I sit in my glider and watch TV while I am spinning.  Now how easy is that?

I've recently taught two people how to spin, and one of them gave me this banana fiber.  Yep, banana!  I have to save it for something really special, but for now I just like to look at it.
I have so much going on, just not time to write about it.  The other day I stopped in at a place called Penny Pincher Estate Sales.  Well, providence does tend to lead us where we need to be.  This lady is going to clean my place out, haul away the garbage, the donations, sell the sellable, and even take the metal to the recyclers, and I will get money for it!!  I am just pleased as punch and look forward to a huge relief in getting this place cleaned out.
My contractor stopped by today and we talked about plans for the house.  I've decided not to add on.  Why does one little me need anymore space?

Oh I love the bike. Hope you find that cute new camera soon.

The new spinning wheel is nice - so glad it helps you spin more yarn.

I love SIMPLE bikes...the kind where your brakes are activated with the foot pedals. That bike looks like a Peggy Sue to me!!! That electric spinner seems nice.....bet you can get things spun a lot faster with that. I'll look forward to the photos from this upcoming weekend of the decorations you do...and hope you find the new camera by that time.

Good to see you! And I'm glad the tape is workin' on the camera. The bikes are way too cool, and the spinning thing looks like a fun toy, enjoy!

I'm in awe of anyone of our generation even getting on a bike. It's been years for me, but I blame the fact that we have fast and narrow country roads with no shoulders in many place. I'm just not comfy out there. Great seeing you staying so busy!
