A Step Back In Time

The Valhalla Renaissance Faire. One of the best places to people watch. Syd and I went in costume, so this year we were the recipients of the people watching us. Clay and our little guy also went along. I so enjoy listening to the banter that goes on and how so many of the people that attend dress up and really get into their character.

Only bought something at one booth, but what a find - for me, anyway. A lady was selling dyed wool - roving - as well as knitting needles, crochet hooks, wool accessories and spindles. I bought some roving, a mini spindle, and she gave me a free lesson in how to spin. I've been taught before, but it's been quite some time, and the way she taught me I was able to get a much thinner yarn.
Some of our babies have hatched! As of yesterday, one baby bird has emerged, and as of today all but two of the butterflies have hatched. They seem to do that when we're gone so we haven't actually seen them emerge.

Spring has Sprung, Welcome Summer

Yes, I haven't posted in forever. I know.
Yes, I should catch my blog up with what has happened in the last four months. I know.
But do I really want to spend all that time typing about what has happened in our lives in one blog?
So I'm posting a few pictures that I took yesterday that make me smile. And today, especially, I need to smile.

We're expecting! Butterflies, that is. Bought the butterfly kit before Christmas last year, sent away for the caterpillars, and this is what they look like today. We should have butterflies in four days or so.
Looks like I won't be using my clothesline for a while. A mother bird decided my clothespin holder looked like the perfect place to build her nest and lay her eggs.

She laid six beautiful eggs! Ouch.
