Throughout the month of October we are doing a little study on farm animals, with a focus on fiber animals. When I found out about the Woodstock Fleece Festival I knew we had to go. So, bright and early Saturday morning we loaded the car up with snacks, audio books, two kids and away we went. Justin drove, I knit, the kids listened to Frog and Toad and Winnie the Pooh. We spent a few hours at the fleece festival, checking in with the animals, watching a lady weave on a very large loom, and taking in all the gorgeous yarns and fiber. I may have been drooling just a little bit. We headed home after a while, happy and tired.
When we arrived to drop off Reece's little friend at her home, we were surprised to be invited in for dinner. I am sure you can appreciate how lovely this was, to be able to sit down with friends, enjoy a meal that I didn't have to cook, and relax after a long day. Thank you to our friends, it was very much appreciated. Back at home we settled in for the evening.
Sunday morning was chilly and windy. I headed out for a run, while Justin and Reece snuggled under the covers a little longer. The rest of the morning was spent in the garden. Final clean up was done, garlic planted, and food harvested. There is something pretty special about gardening in my winter hat, scarf and woolen layers.
We had a few errands to do in the afternoon, and stopped in for a very quick visit with my parents before heading back home for a simple dinner, and a quiet evening.
How was your weekend?
