Hug A Sheep Day and
My walk with God (true story)...
Dream asked me to remind everyone that there are only THREE MORE DAYS until the very first, annual Hug A Sheep day!
She also says that if you can't make it to an Open House / Fiber Festival this Saturday, you are certainly welcome to Hug A Sheep, vicariously, through one of the many sheep blogs available. She definitely thinks that you should VOTE for which sheep you'd most love to hug on the sidebar of this blog. Just so you know, fondling wool yarn or wool garments counts, as does hugging the closest thing that you may have to a sheep ~ such as a dog or cat ~ use your imagination! Just be sure to give a moment's thought to all of the wonderful products, not to mention the joy, that our woolly friends provide for us.
Now, about my walk (and talk) with God...
Last weekend, I was in Russell, Pennsylvania, visiting my very Dear Friends, Linda and Pete Westover, of Foxglove Farm Shetlands. On Monday, we went to a wine tasting at a wonderful vineyard in nearby New York. After the wine tasting, Linda had planned a picnic on Barcelona Beach for the three of us. It was delightful! While Linda and Pete strolled the shoreline of Lake Erie, looking for Sea Glass, I decided that I wanted to hunt for something different ~ something I've been wanting to start a collection of for a long time. I was going to hunt for heart shaped rocks.
Aren't they cool?
I've been wanting to start a heart shaped rock collection for some time and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Not that I wasn't happy with the 'sort of' heart shaped rocks that I was finding.
The ones that I had to use a little imagination to really see the heart,
I could still see the
love heart ~ even if nobody else could. And I was satisfied with that.
Just close enough to obviously be heart shaped.
One that I didn't have to use my imagination to see ...
"You can see Mom's heart shaped rock collection (although, I can't for the LIFE of me, figure out why anyone would want to) and ME, if you come to our "Hug A Sheep" day, Open House and Fiber Festival. And DON'T FORGET TO VOTE FOR ME ~ er, of course I mean: for the sheep you would most like to hug... Which would of course, be ME!!!"
