Sign of the Times
We visited Santa last night at the Hilldale Mall. When we got there he was on his cell phone - imagine. A fellow mom walked by and whispered "He's on his cell phone?! That's sick!" Actually, sadly, it's a sign of the times. I mean why wouldn't Santa be calling Mrs. Clause? Checking on the Elves? I mean people everywhere are on their damn phone right? (myself not excluded on occasion) I had a holiday meet up with some girlfriend's at a restaurant tonight and a man hugged a friend who had just arrived, while talking on his phone - wtf? What a multi-tasker. To compliment my previous rant about wanting to heighten my mindfulness, how about a little attentiveness? I love the convenience of the cell phone but egads, the annoyance of it all - is everything just a little too easy?
Well, I 'll tell you something that wasn't easy - spinning! Okay, it wasn't hard either - I think it is an art. I took a class last night at the Sow's Ear - what fun. I learned basic drop spindle and some plying. I have several balls of roving to practice on and hope to hone my skills over the holiday - I was a bit too thick and thin for my taste last night, I like simple lines, so practice, practice! If the sun ever comes out I'll have to post my little schmibbles.
BTW, the Hilldale Mall has an Anthropologie store!! I was so excited to get to see one in person, beautiful! My sister asked what one gets at Anthropologie - my response "inspiration"!
**update - my first spun yarn - Ernest loves it!
