Company's coming!

After three days of hard driving from Amarillo, TX, my folks should arrive sometime this evening. We are waiting with eager spirits, open arms – and berries!

Why would my folks drive all the way to Oregon from Texas in the middle of a brutal summer? Because they love us, and are incredibly kind and generous.

Brian has gotten the idea in his head that he could ride back to Texas with his grandparents for his first solo visit. The adults in the equation are contemplating this possibility. Stay tuned.

Oh, I finished plying the last of my yarn for the Tour de Fleece. Still need to skein and measure it, but I think it turned out well. I'm calling it Berries and Cream (53g, BFL/BFL-silk two-ply):
Think I have berries on the brain? Hmmm?

That's it for today from . . .

Your yarn on the spindle is beautiful, so even, and neat, looks almost machine precise, not lumpy, bumpy like my attempt at a drop spindle, LOL. Berries look beautiful too.

I could think of worse things to have on the brain...LOL! How exciting for all of you - and how wonderful that Brian loves to spend time with his grandparents!

I'd say with your recent acquisition of 135# of blueberries, you not only have them on the brain but everywhere else, too!

Hope you have a wonderful visit with your folks.

Oh,"berries and cream", that's perfect. The yarn is beautiful!
I wish you a wonderful time with your parents.
Make them a blackberry (blueberry... any berry) pie.
Enjoy the visit.
