Rambles

And the winner of the IWrite journal is Mary Aalgaard at Play Off the Page. Congratulations! Email me your address and I will get it in the mail!







Now for a new give-a-way gift- this cute plaque. Just tell me in the comment area you would like to enter and it's done. 












I don't have much to say today. It's hard for me to believe too.

Fiber Fair
I went Saturday to a Fiber Fair. My sister goes every year and sets up a booth with her wool product. I forgot to take photos of the event, I took some along the way, but none there. So if she took photos and posts them on her blog, I will let you know. It's always fun to listen to her tell others about her sheep and wool. Her wool is very popular.
I am going to interview my dad in the near future about his new book,  Life Along the Dousinberry: The Story of an Ozark Country Boy's Journey Through the Troubling Years of the 1940's.  I'm not sure where I will post it yet, here or The Ruralhood - or both. Dad has self-published four books. This one is my favorite because....  More about that later.



The Ruralhood
Be sure to check out Summertime Job for a Rural Girl - before it disappears next Saturday.

Later,  I am off to get a physical and I have a meeting with "The Clamp". Wish me luck.

  2. I have to be so careful at fiber fairs -- buy far too much! I love all the work by the artists!
