Do you ever notice that when you develop an interest in something, it begins to pervade all aspects of your life? If not, well, then you haven't developed a sufficiently strong interest in something!!
Today, I thought I'd do a little blogging about how sheep have invaded my home. Yes, yes, I know, Miss Marshmallow, Sheep of the Century, invaded my home, in person (in sheep?), for a couple of months last year, but that was different. I'm talking about the more subtle ways that sheep have found their way into my home.
First, there's the fibre (or fiber, if you're an American speller). I have fibre everywhere.
There is fibre in my kitchen, because on my kitchen table there is a basket with wool in it. Not to mention my knitting work-in-progress bag, which has sheep on it...see?
Then, there are the books and magazines. There are sheep magazines or catalogues with sheep related paraphernalia in my bedroom, beside my bed, for moments of reading.
There is a sheep on the mantel in the living room, in picture form, along with 2 Christmas decoration sheep that I haven't got the heart to put away yet.
And yes, there are even sheep on my pajamas.
In other, less interesting news, here are my books for this semester. Yes, the price tags are horrific.
I'm taking Property (my last first year class, now that I'm in my third year, because when you're part time, that's what happens), Land Use Control, and Gaming Law. What? Gaming Law??? Yes, it's a 2 credit course and I needed 2 credits to make up my 9 credit semester (the maximum I can take). And hey, it includes a field trip to a casino to talk to the security staff about managing the legal aspects of running a casino. It can't be all that bad!
The other exciting news, which relates back to sheep I suppose, is that my Christmas lamp arrived! My parents generously sent me the money to buy a proper lamp for Christmas, since I really needed one that would illuminate a great many things for me. Spinning, knitting, crocheting, reading law books....yes, I needed a good quality floor lamp. I was lucky enough to find the Ott-Lamps on half price at JoAnn Fabrics (online). I ordered a table lamp and a floor lamp since the sale prices were so good. They arrived and unfortunately the table lamp was broken, so I had to return it. However, the floor lamp is superb. I am thrilled. I have never had such a wonderful lamp. The light is a nice clear blue-light, more like daylight than the yellowish light produced by most incandescent bulbs. I can really see detail and colours clearly with it, and I'm absolutely delighted. Get it? DeLIGHTed. Hahahahaha....
