The Good news is......

The Good news is- I lost 10 lbs! The Bad news is - you never want to go on this diet. I have been very sick for the past week sports fans! Extremely rare for me but I was down for the count. But I am getting a head of myself. Let me fill you in......
When last I wrote, I was Soaring in PA with many spinning gurus and friends and what a fun time we had! After returning home, I was in a rush to get all ready for my next show SAFF in Ashville NC. Having only a week and a half between these two shows proved to be a bit of a dyer’s challenge but I got my behind in gear and “got her done“. The show was great, I had Sassy Nancy as a booth mate which is always a hoot. I even bought a wonderful Cotswold fleece out of the Fleece show. Look at those curls!
SAFF is always the last weekend in October and is well worth a visit for knitting, spinning and felting fans. It is the best show (in my opinion) south of the Mason-Dixon line. If you didn’t make it this year, make the effort for next year :>).
So after the show, I was ran away to a small mountain cabin to be with the marvelous Mr. M. Very exciting it actually SNOWED and I have pics to prove it. Here is the snow with my footprints and look at the temperature!
It was completely wonderful for about 2 days. Then I got a soar throat, then I got a fever, then I got a cough...yada yada yada. I was sooooo sick that I was crying when I swallowed. Mr. M was wonderful, as always, and fixed me tons of peppermint tea and soup. He even got me a birthday cake which I was too sick to eat (yes, it was my birthday!) Finally I had to be dragged (kicking and screaming) to the Doctor’s office.
TOTAL SIDEBAR----I really don’t know why I resist going to the Doctor’s office. I mean, I always feel better after they give me medicine but I guess it is the child in me thinking that if I don’t go, then I can’t really be sick. I feel the same way about hair dressers and always wait until my hair is way outta control before getting it cut. But I digress.....
We got many cool drugs and I dragged myself and Kermit (my faithful Honda Element) home the next day. That was Saturday. Finally today, Thursday, I feel recovered enough to make a blog entry. October seems like it is a blur to me. I can’t believe it is already gone. Oh well, on to the holidays and my first felting class at GA’s studio this weekend. It is the Inlay Felt Class. I’ll let you know how it all comes out. Hope you all stay healthy and happy :>) gale
