I went to the River Spinners Guild meeting last night and we will have a table at the Wild and Wooly Week-end event in Proctorsville,Vt. Each Guild member was asked to bring marked items to be sold at this event. Alison Schantz and Jenna Konesko will go with me to the event. We will set up our table and sell items that week-end. I am planning to be there unless lambs arrive that week-end! It should be a fun time as the Pointe Hotel is a beautiful facility and there are some wonderful vendors that will be there.
This Sunday will be my last day at my current job for home care. I have to take some time off for all the work here at the farm. Its really hard to manage everything, so for now I need to be home at the farm. My grandson Declan's 5th birthday was yesterday and we made a birthday cake in a star pan that was my mother's. We had a little birthday party at my sister Bev's house and my brother Burdette and his wife Rosalee came to have cake and ice cream. My granddaughter Rowan will have her 8th birthday on April 23rd. Wow, the grandchildren certainly are growing up quickly. My son David will have a birthday on April 18th and be 37 yrs. old............how did my baby get to be that old?????? My daughter was 41 yrs. old on March 13th...........My husband Jonathan will be 71 on May 1st. My son's children ( my granddaughter Ella) will be 5 yrs. old on June 29th and her brother (my grandson) Austin will be 10 yrs. old on July 9th.
Tomorrow I will be working around the farm cleaning up and putting away things that need to be taken care of. Next Saturday is the first of two farm visits for the students that were in my after school Fiber Fun Classes. There were 19 students in the Wardsboro group and 10 students in the Townshend group. They were given the choice to come before shearing or after lambing. I hope that it is broken up into two smaller groups and now all 29 students show up on the same day! WHEEEEE!
Well its time to go fix supper and then I think Rowan is coming for her sleepover. So-long from Maybelle MaMa.
