Thank you Sarah

Sarah gave me this lovely hemp yarn for my birthday and the oh so sweet llama card. I'm looking forward to trying hemp yarn for the first time, mmmmm what should I make with it? Any suggestions are more than welcome. Notice the winterberry branches in the background, I found them down by the stream on a family walk last week. I planted one of these down at the house this past spring. I can't wait to work in our garden more this coming year.
Sunday I took the cubscouts on an interesting hike at Kettletown. We got a little lost, but in the end found our way to a beautiful scenic overlook of lake zoar. Can you tell the boys look a little frustrated with my map interpreting skills?

My gaelic phrase

Your Results:Is maith liom bananai Is maith liom bananai - 'I like bananas.'You're laid-back and you enjoy the simple things in life. Some might say you're a little too laid-back. Just what is it you're smoking, anyway?

I was reading Mary's blog and her post about this gaelic quiz, interesting this is exactly what Steve says I am. I tell him he's way too uptight and he says I don't worry enough about crap. We went to a Halloween party last night and he spilled his fake skin all over himself and I'm laughing my butt off and he was upset! Example of enjoying the simple things in life I guess, too funny.
