My new addiction

Ok, so I started something new in the past week and a half...I am totally addicted to spinning. No, this is not something I like to do at the gym, and I don't even break a sweat when I do it. I have recently aquired a drop spindle and yarn. This is what it looked like in the beginning:
Then I made it look like this by spinning it:
And finally I have my 1st ball of yarn!
Isn't it beautiful? I feel like a new momma I am so proud! Now all it needs is a little color and I will make something with it. I haven't decided on what to make yet, maybe just a scarf. I just don't know .
I will keep updating my progress as I spin and dye more. I will post what I make too!
This spinning is all part of my evil plan to get my own spinning wheel and have sheep in the backyard someday. Actually, I really just wanted to rush out and buy a spinning wheel a few weeks ago, but could not justify the $400 - $600 investment with zero experience, so I contacted a gal I knew at Fairwinds Farms and bought 2lbs of wool roving and her husband makes these drop spindles and sells them for just $7 so I bought 3 of them so I could teach the girls how to spin too! The wool roving was only $20 for a pound (that is a killer bargin) which is why I bought 2lbs. Not to mention I wanted to have enough of it in case I screwed it up or accidently succeeded and made something wonderful. I think I actually landed somewhere in the middle there.
Anywho, off to spin some more! I am going to buy some kool-aid tonight and work on dying this and maybe dying some raw wool before I spin it...that would be so cool! Oh, but it is going to be messy! Sounds perfect for me!

How accurate are horoscopes?

So I get this email today and it has all of these horoscopes in it. I look up those of my loved ones and my findings are below.

D1, now hers is scary right. I tell you they have been in my house! These people watched my family when making these descriptions! D2 is grounded just because of the title of her horoscope. But most of it is accurate for her too! I wish these people would stop stalking is kind of creeping me out. Have they been listening in on my phone calls?

OK, I went to the Chiropractor today. I LOVE my Chiropractor! Dr. Page is a wonderful guy, and he makes me feel fabulous! Today I was having a lot of trouble with my lower back, so he worked on that quite a bit. Not a bad thing, lots of cracking going on, however, he used this laser today. It is called LLLT, low level laser therapy. It is used to reduce pain and inflammation. This was the 1st time he used that on me, and it really works! I am feeling a little sore, but I really feel like the pain in my back is reduced. He uses all kinds of techniques and really focuses on over-all wellness. So if you are needing a Chiropractor, I would highly recommend him. I found him through my insurance company. J~

Absent but accounted for...

Well, that about sums me up. I am here but not there. I am not where I am supposed to be, but I know where I am. I am where I am supposed to be but not doing what I should. I am doing what I should but not when it should have been done. Yeah...that's me. J~
