No updates on Stuffin. Her udder is fuller today than yesterday, but no babies, and no signs of initial labour. We keep hoping it won't happen in the middle of the night!
Tonight, we had our spinning class. We did plying tonight. Here is my first plying attempt. I am calling it "Candy Cane" yarn. I had to use my not-so-good cream stuff with my slightly-better red stuff for plying. We put it on our PVC niddy noddy and tomorrow it will get its first water bath to help it remember its twist. It's still pretty chunky looking but I guess it's OK.
Tonight I have to read some material for my class tomorrow, so not much time to chatter, but I want to say that today, I watched the inauguration, the oath, the speech...and for the first time in my 6.5 years here, I felt proud of the leadership and future direction of this country.
Even I, the non-citizen, who can't even vote, had a tear in my eye and a song in my heart. I wished that Stuffin had kidded today because one of those goat-lettes would have been named "Hope" in honour of the day, because that, more than anything, is what I feel. It's been a long time coming. Congratulations, America! What a historic day and a grand new beginning.
