SOP

For some of us, this means...standard operating procedures...yeah, stuff you need for work and well to operate/do things.

Not this weekend though...it stands for...

Spinning on the Porch!


Normally, this time of year has me hiding in the AC, but Sunday nite, nope as it was breezy and cool.

Necessities for SOP'ing here in the hot already South are...
Supplies needed
bug candle for those pesky gnats & mosquitoes...passionfruit tea (plain sadly ;) and spinning oil...

A nice view...

Now onto spinning.....
actual fiber to yarn!

I'm gearing up for the Tour de Fleece. It's from July 3-25. Basically you spin every day they bikers ride. I was on vacation last year at this time and well, my wheel owning was only a few weeks. This year I hope to spin through some fiber stash. I like the incentive (not that I'm winning anything, just something fun to do.) Plus it helps to have a local friend to spin along with.

I failed utterly at the TDF a couple of years ago. I should try again.

Well, except for that whole "I'm in another show and we'll be away for one weekend during the Tour" thing...

On second thought, maybe I'll just cheer you on. :D

Try the passion tea with a little lemonade. YUMMY and still "spinning safe". LOL

Your view from the porch is lovely.

Love sour porch! Love your tea! Love the view from your porch!
And that get-out-of-here-mosquitoes bucket is really large! Are there GMO mosquitoes!??

What a great place to spin! Ah, summer.

P.S. That tea looks really, really good.

Not a spinner, but I like the pretty pictures :-) I think I'll skip a fiber connection to the TdF and World Cup this year and just enjoy my hobbies, sans motivation. Good luck to you!

Verification "word" is sockaest. Wonder if that's a cool new way to describe someone who makes socks?
