Looking ahead

It's been a bit since I've felt inspired to blog, I admit. I guess it's that year end reflection stuff...thinking about what was and what may be ahead. This week's news about the Panty Bomber and our never ending tales of government screw ups wasn't any help, I admit. I guess that's just what happens when something gets too big and there are too many people in the loop. Sometimes I think it's a wonder any of it works at all.

I've been spinning some fun stuff this last week...batts, mostly, and turning them into what I hope will be lace weight yarn when all is said and done. I guess spinning tiny yarn is a component of being in this mood, something small that requires focus and gives one a small feeling of control of something.

I took these photos on the morning of Solstice when that first light entered the house.

I wish you all a safe and happy 2010. Thanks for being there.

I always love coming by your site. Yes you are so right about this past year. It is wonder that we are still all together in blogland and able to write our true feelings the way our country seems to be falling apart. I want it back the way it was before I ever heard of those crazy stupid people over there and there terrorist acts. I want our boys and girls home where they belong.
Anyway all we can do is keep praying and praying.
Why don't you put your lovely stuff on my Temptations Mondays post so everyone can enjoy your site.

Maggie: I've answered you privately because I'm so crabby today...don't want to depress anyone anymore than I have already! :0)
