This past weekend was the Massachusetts Sheep & Wool fest in Cummington. It was decided many moons ago that Risa was going to be visiting – which made the weekend even more exciting!
She arrived on Friday and the first thing I did was drag her into the back yard to show her this:
(you know, because that’s what she came up here for, to see my garden. Not.) There’s seven blooms this year, which is a record. I *heart* this plant!
The next thing she saw was this:
Jazz? Is nuts. (she’s the one on the left, Beanie’s the little one on the right) She runs and runs and runs and runs then stops and then runs some more after she bites at Beanie and gets her mad enough to chase her again. Nuts.
Then RR came home and Jazzy showed off her mad skillz (she jumps into your arms on command now – most of the time. *ahem*):
and her tongue. She has serious tongue. And jump skillz. ;o)
Then there were many hours of spinning, eating and watching of movies. We went to bed kinda early because…well, because I’m old and fall asleep after the 11 o’clock news and because we had to get up early the next morning to get to the fest….
…where we saw the usual suspects (and blog free Manise and Sharon – and I hope I didn’t forget anyone but I probably did and I’m sorry, we all know I have no memory and I suck) …and sheep and wool and wheels and stuff and more stuff and…and…well, I’m just going to show you more pictures:
Those last two? You can’t get any more predictable than that. (Risa buying Neopolitan flavored roving and Laurie cleaning out the fleece sale) ;op
Then I had a little get-together at the house where I may have imbibed a drinky or two and completely forgot to use the camera. Oopsies. Though there are some pictures here (scroll down…you can see Sarah and Tamara and Michelle and Harriet and Tim and Diane (blog-free)…and…and…I think that’s it).
Oh and you’re just going to have to wait ’til Friday to see what I bought…and what was gifted to me. ;o)
