I've been fairly deep in hibernation since Mr. S. left town on 1/26...only one trip out, last Saturday, to visit our new dog. If you've been with me for very long, you know how I value my time alone. Nothing about not loving all the people in my world, I'm just wired in such a way that I seem to need this sort of time to refuel my soul.
It has been a productive time...spinning lots of new yarns, doing some dyeing, finishing a book and starting another. I've walked the dogs in the deepest snow I could find in the yard, pretending I was getting a great workout. The sun has been rather illusive, so I've not been able to do photo shoots of so much shop inventory that awaits. It's OK, though...this year is the year I'm trying to really work hard at setting sensible, achievable priorities and lose the last remnants of my secret Type A personality. There are two of me who live here: one who would love to travel endlessly and the other who never wants to step outside the gate. Finding balance is part of this year's plan.
Today's the big day: our new girl dog comes home. Last weekend she met Haus, our big goofy male Rottie. He was singularly unimpressed, and found her a bit of a bother. He has led a sedentary life style these two years we've had him, so having a new girl pup to run him around the corral is going to rock his world...in a good way, I hope. Here are a couple of photos of them meeting last Saturday. He's the handsome devil sporting the pinch collar.
