My Drop Spindle

My drop spindle arrived in the mail today with a hunk of wool and some instructions.  Wish me luck!

I went down to Ft. Massac, on the Ohio River, Saturday.  There was a meeting of the Weavers and Spinners Guild in the Visitor's Center.  I have been interested in spinning ever since Bear's first shed.
He was a fuzzy boy.  Anyhow, there were about 6 spinning wheels set up and the women said normally they have a much bigger turnout but the weather kept some of them at home.  It was inspiring and fascinating.  I came home and ordered a drop spindle.  They meet every first Saturday, and next month I will be there for whatever help and hints they can offer me.

Cat food

I bought a 7 lb bag of Iams for the cats, and litter, and hamburger.  Spent $26.87.  I haven't really paid attention to how long a bag of food lasts, so this will be interesting.  I am making a pizza casserole this weekend.  I dropped two big bins of clothing to a young lady who has been losing a lot of weight.  She said it felt like Christmas! 

I have been invited down to Ft Massac for a spinning, weaving and quilting guild show tomorrow, but it is snowing pretty heavy right now.  We will see what it looks like in the morning.

Sassy gets a shot.

Sassy had her check up yesterday, so I spent $40.  She weighs .1 of a pound less than last year.  Pretty consistent.  Skinny little girl.  I also put $26 worth of gas in the car today, but got 29 mpg so that's not bad.  I need to get some cat food and kitty litter tomorrow.  Joy.  I had tuna salad and triscuits for lunch with an orange for a chaser.  Ate bacon and pancakes for dinner.  I have spaghetti for lunch tomorrow, and need to remember to take some more oatmeal to work.  I am making some scalloped corn, because I love it as a side.   I do need to come up with something to do with all the tomato sauce.  Off to recipe hunt!

I have a stuffy upped head.

I keep thinking I am going to try a dairy free diet to see if that will cut down on the stuffiness, but then I realize that means no cheese.  NO CHEESE!!!  I don't think I can do it.  NO SOUR CREAM!!! Nope, can't see it happening.  I don't drink milk, but I do use it on cereal and in cooking.  It's the cheese.  Or maybe I'm allergic to cats.  Wouldn't that be a kicker.
