Treasuring Abundance

Today is one of those rare and wonderful days when I can shut the door to the outside world for several hours, appreciate the abundance in my life and, naturally, spend a lot of time working with my fiber.

I can’t possibly take time to make the bed because the cat is sleeping on it.

Mother Nature is on my side and it is raining so I don’t have to water.

I have good books to read.books reading

And I have an abundance of alpaca that I have dyed to work with all day long.

Thanks to alpacas named Wilmington and Lenox.

I have alpaca yarn and batts I have made which I can admire.

I can revel in the thought that even with this much alpaca I still have a lot more to wash,  dye and enjoy in the future.

My chickens have even brought me lunch for today and longer.

Tomorrow I will face the outside world again. Today I will let myself get absorbed in

Beautiful alpaca!

Here is hoping that during the next week everyone can have a few hours to enjoy the  abundance in their lives and emerge refreshed! I would love to hear about what is abundant and enjoyable in your lives.

    Love imagining your abundance with all these colorful fibers, books, eggs, alpacas, and quie. Reading a novel at an artsy student cafe in Cambridge on a day with sunshine in this leafy place — after a long travel day across an ocean and time zones. This is my abundance today!
