Tea Fob Wisdom and Tonight's Soundtrack

I know I'm waaaay overdue for some blog posts. I've been dashing from one thing to the next so I thought I'd dash off a blog post.

I've been enjoying tea in the mornings before school and have saved some of the Tea Fob Wisdom gracing the Good Earth Original Sweet & Spicy tea bags to share with you:

  • "To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am."
    Bernard M. Baruch, 1870-1965
  • "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"
  • "Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it."

And Tonight's Soundtrack {caution, ear worm alert!} is…
"Happy" by Pharrell Williams.   "Clap along if you feel…"

Oh - and there's a "longer" ;-) version at  24HoursOfHappy.com
Yep, I'm smitten again. Happy-chair-dance. Night!

A Smattering - Fibre, Irons, Knitting, Puppies, and Events

Upcoming Calendar items:
I'm sure there's a bunch more up-n-coming events - leave a comment to clue me in!

A friend brought to my attention that House Bill 2379 could cut the funding for our amazing Pima County Public Library. Please consider contacting your AZ Legislator soonest.

Juniper Moon Farm {nifty blog, yarn, etc} directed me to this charming blog post about a Golden Retriever caring for a Kitten
{Yep, Kleenex alert!}.
And, newly smitten with Reshareworthy, I am tickled with this Budweiser/Clydesdale/Puppy commercial. {Still got the Kleenex?}

When I went to last month's Tucson Handweaver's and Spinner's Guild Knitting Study Group meeting at the University of Arizona Agricultural Center - I found parking was at a premium and there were a wide variety of fibre-related critters already on site:
{I believe a 4-H gathering was sharing our meeting-time.}


I recently got to go to the White Mountains with a few friends to stay with another friend - where I met New Friends! {wry grin}

At a stop along the way, I saw a woman with spiffy boots of Harper Blue. {Geek-ful moment: Dragonriders of Pern, Dragonsinger reference}

One new Friend was deemed a "Keeper" and she shared this link with me: A Young Man's History of Doctor Who in 11 Photographs.

But the moon was still up:

Several of the New Friends were sewing these on multiple embroidery machines to create these stunning, detailed Christmas Tree panels:
(As always, please click on the photos to enlarge.)

And I finished these projects whilst traveling/retreating in the White Mountains:


Squishy Cowl {in seriously YUMMY-soft Alpaca} and Knotty but Nice Hat.

Comfort of a Friend Woman's Shawl

The view as I left the weekend retreat - the IronWood Tree:
{A lotta irons have been burned out at Bear Cabin Quilting Retreats.}

I hope life is treating you well!
