The sap is running. We're getting measurable amounts now and we can start boiling it down tomorrow. We are also under a winter storm warning until Wednesday morning. My children threaten to cry when they hear the weather report, but then so does my mother. Spring will come. It always does.
I'm also going to start shearing as soon as the snow lets up. I still have mohair from the last shearing to card and spin. I'm carding up a bunch of white right now and dyeing it blue. I told dd2 that I would ply it and knit her a mohair sweater. This might be done by Christmas.
I have a dress cut out to sew and a purse in the works. I'm in a crafting mood, to be sure.
Today its off to town to get ds's stitches out. He had 14 in his leg. Then groceries, then to work at the soup kitchen. Home and then sap collecting. I'm not trying to sound busy. I really don't feel that way right now. I'm feeling totally blessed.
Praying that the Lord makes opportunities for you and I to minister to others today and shine forth His glory.
