A Day Off

My shoulder has been killing me for the last week or so. I keep meaning to rest it, but somehow that doesn’t work out if I hang around home. Carding wool with my electric drum carder is a good way to rest it (I’m catching up on fleece challenge – Celine’s is almost finished), but picking up a 50 lb carder to lay it over so I could clean in front of the motor wasn’t all that restful.

Driving doesn’t bother my shoulder ….Road Trip! Well, very short road trip – just 50 miles up the road to Perry’s Water Gardens It’s not yet prime water lily season, but it was a nice drive and some of the earlier varieties were blooming.

I love the look of these clouds – they look like cloud mountains.

The gardens are a group of small ponds with mowed walkways. Ben served as my tour guide.
