It was an extremely productive day. And that is in spite of the rain pounding us off and on all day.
I found mailing addresses for three packages outbound probably Thurs (this time Colorado rather than Texas) as well as Zimbabwe and Georgia. Go figure. I offered to send more yarn to Minnesota, but the young farmer I know there gracefully declined as planting season is just around the corner.
I’ve someone coming to pick up my remaining floor loom shortly after I leave for Singapore. I managed to find all the related items (bench, shuttles, raddle, reeds, bobbins etc) and even a couple of books. It is going to be so nice to have it in the hands of the woman who is getting it. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does in going beyond four-harness & back-strap weaving.
But my most fun was taking my three in town (Dani, Alex, Noah) off to the Mountain Hardware Employee/Outlet store on Point Richmond. It is amazing how many shoes one needs to try on when looking for hiking shoes (the key being lousy muddy terrain and a German-Short Hair). In the same complex which is the old Ford Assembly Plant one can find the Rosie The Riveter Museum and the Assembly Restaurant.
Otherwise, I appreciate all the good thoughts about hair, the lack there of, how to deal etc. I think about 1/2 my hair decided to take leave of my scalp over the day so I am now figuring about 1-2 days more before head covering, wig or more than one of the above. I’ll spare you another photo of hair…..
