The stars have aligned! Gorgeous Girl is asleep and I actually have some time to do a blog post. We went camping a few weekends ago at Grootvaderbosch.
We got to try out our new (to us ) tent. (That’s the sun setting in the background).
Unlike our previous ‘couple’ tent, this one is big enough to hold Gorgeous Girl’s camping cot.
The campsite had privacy fences.
Which I hadn’t seen before.
We took a walk (well I took a walk, Gorgeous Man did it several times) down to the red woods.
I was very proud of myself that I managed to complete this walk, only stopping once for a sit-down and that was at the bird-hide at the top of the track. I know that at the beginning of the year I would not have had the fitness to even consider the track. Did I mention that I’ve lost 2 kilos so far (about 4.4 pounds) not a huge amount, but it took a long time to put the weight on, and it’s going to take a long time to get it off.
We saw this fellow while we were walking in the forest.
We stood back respectfully and took pictures until (s)he got out of the way.
I’ve taken some more yarn off the wheel. I got a bit carried away with the spinning. Consequently, I’m now limiting my time on the wheel so that I don’t give myself a strain injury on my wrist, so this will be the last finished yarn you’ll see for a while.
That is straight off the wheel before washing and ‘setting’. I’m very pleased with how this turned out, and I have a stack more to spin.
