Weekend Wrap Up

Whew!  It's been a bit of a whirlwind.  We had friends in camped out in the house and Wool House and one night had 13 people here for dinner.  Luckily the weather cooled off a bit and the porch was pleasant and everyone was comfortable, even crabby me ;-).

We had a small, but great group for the yarn swap and spin in on Saturday.  I actually sat down and spun some and enjoyed visiting with everyone :-).  There was a bit of selling and a bit of swapping.  I gave a short spindle lesson and a very short weaving lesson and there was a lot of knitting help given all around.  Fiber folks are just the best.

The Tour de Fleece rides on.  I'm still working on my woven scarf, pushing to finish today.  Now that things are hopefully settling back down for a bit, I plan to really clock some "mileage".  The rest of the group has been inspiring as usual.

The Young Eagle - well, I hope all is well.  He came down to eat breakfast on Sunday and that was the last 'for sure' sighting :-/.  I think the timing was normal for "moving on", but it seems odd/worrisome to break it off that abruptly.

There has been no sign of a tragic ending though and the yard is so full of similar aged fledglings that maybe he just assimilated back into bird world.  I'm trying to not be too sad.  It's hard.  I really loved that silly bird.  He/she was a gift.

Thanks for the video, Robin.

We have had our own share of "young eagles" and it is always hard to let go. Perhaps life is just a series of letting go , but that doesn't make it any easier for us, does it?

A gift from nature. But so sad to see them leave. Sigh.

Eating from a human hand! I choose to think he hasn't gone far, because of that. He has to spread his wings, Mom, but I know letting go is tough. In this crazy world, you really want the little bits you know to be all right.

...the little bits you know to be all right. Beautiful.

You helped as much as you could and he/she had gotten really strong. Not being heavily imprinted on people is a good thing - I think he took up with the sparrow flock and decided that hey!-I'm a bird! and is one of the gang now.
