Orange


I was up this morning some where around 4:30. The house was dark and silent. But in the living room we have a fish aquarium and its light is just right to sit by and spin. Certainly not a bright light, but I can spin with my eyes closed so there isn't a need for a bright light anyway.
I sat spinning until about 5:30. Its such a restful almost meditative activity. The spool filling up with bright orange yarn, spun fine for sock yarn. Its a satisfying feeling to make yarn in such an old fashioned way. It will be a gift. A blessing for me to share.
Its at times like this morning that I feel 100% sure I have the perfect life for me.

"I feel 100% sure I have the perfect life for me." What a blessing!
You are truly blessed Patty. I'm not sure that I'm where I want to be, but I'm confident that I'm doing what God wants me to be doing.

I've never tried spinning because it looks too hard to do. I can imagine it would be a very relaxing hobby.

Dear Patty, your blog is a real inspiration for me. I read it every morning, opening it as a Christmas present. Lots of lovely photos and, most of all, lots of things to meditate about. Thanks for sharing your life. Paola

dear patty,
I am always wondering how you can possibly manage to do all the things you are doing - now I know - you are hardly sleeping - getting at 4.30 in the morning! when I am sometimes up at that time of the night with one of my ill children (they must be ill not to sleep at that time) I feel as if I would be the only person in the whole world not sleeping... now I know, there are more people up... :o)
Beautifull yarn! Many blessings...

Patty, you are an inspiration to me... I look forward to reading your morning rambles every day. The yarn you spun is such a beautiful color did you dye the wool? I wish I could get started early in the morning hopefully as my strength builds as it is doing each day I will be able to accomplish an early morning run,time to talk with Heavenly Father and to write in my blog each day...Hugs Tina
P.S. Thank You for your Prayers they mean so much....
