Because I have a yard!
Look at all that land. Thank goodness the homeowners association is responsible for its upkeep. It would take HOURS to mow.
And the mostly dead plants they planted just add so much to the landscaping. Hopefully, someone will notice that and replace them soon.
I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July weekend. I had visitors this weekend. My mom, dad and sister drove in from Iowa, so we did some shopping and exploring and ate some really good food. We also watched some spectacular fireworks. Like the bad blogger that I am, I didn't take any photos. Mary has photos on her blog.
I finished some spinning. This is the seemingly neverending wool/silk blend from The Sanguine Gryphon that I got from The Loopy Ewe. The colorway is Fire. My goal was to spin a heavy laceweight for a shawl or a wrap. I got about 1750 yards from 8 oz. It is so soft and pretty.
And this was a quick and fun spin. It's 4 oz of merino wool from The Spunky Club in Mud Season. I think this will become some fingerless mitts.
