of rain

"It rained for four years,eleven months and two days.There were periods of drizzle during which everyone put on his full dress and a convalescent look to celebrate the clearing,but the people soon grew accustomed to interpret the pauses as a sign of redoubled rain."
 One hundred Years of Solitude
Gabriel Garcia Marquez

not quite but almost.two straight weeks.we needed it, but give me a break!I need to learn how to function in a wet environment.coming from the dry med where activity almost stops when it rains it is a learning experience.luckily husband-san insisted to the point of obnoxiousness that i buy a pair of gore-tex and all kinds of techs rain booties.with a blessed zipper on the side so they qualify as slip ons.
hunter boots are cool, but very impractical. unless you're kate moss and are making a statement.(eye roll)

my admiration for all of you who work with linen.i have worked with very fine threads all my weaving life, but they were mostly silk or wool and a bit of cotton as well.
but linen is a different animal; it has a different life and behavior.
so here i am learning about how to handle linen, even in a much thicker grist than what i am used to work with it presents of them the airborne lint that causes me to cough and gives me  a runny nose, japanese cold masks are de rigeur .
 the autodenter works like a good baby! it doesn't cut the threads like it sometimes does to very fine gain!
after a very long bank holiday-almost a week-with no walks, aqua gym,japanese class and ladies who coffee i was able to really troop it. dying to start weaving!and i already have the cakes baked, the xmas dinner made and frozen and the decos up.just need to sit down and make the xmas animated card.woohoo!
