We are filling our days with tons of family time. Lots of ping pong tournaments are going around!
(I have very sore muscles from my hour of playing and losing!)
These guys are enjoying a dip every afternoon in the very refreshing water!
I finished knitting the fingerless mitts to match the hat.
Dinner tonight at Scicily's-the best thin crust pizza south of NY!
And no matter how old your 'kids' get, they still stir a momma's heart when they fall asleep on the couch!

Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee and praise Thy glorious Name...1 Chronicles 29:13
I hope you have a wonderful day, savoring the best things in your life with those you love.
God has certainly made all things possible in our lives for us to know Him.

I met a new spinning friend this week and we had an adventure today! We took our spinning wheels and some wool and went to the PowWow at the Pioneer Settlement in Barberville. What a lovely time we had! We got to demonstrate spinning to visitors and even helped two novice spinners join the ranks of yarn makers!. It was a lovely way to get to know each other! While I didn't get any pics of us spinning, I did get some of the Native Americans, the Timucua .
I spun up another skein of Gator colored yarn-it was fun to hear comments on team, of better color choices or cheers for my selection!
I was introduced to some brown cotton, seeds, fiber and a cotton boll. I have one final hope to learn to love spinning this fiber!

I even dyed another bit of roving to match the last skein of yarn so there is enough to make mittens and hat.
