What I Do on Thursday Night

I used to do my Fiber Arts Friday blog on Thursday night, so by the time my friends in earlier time zones are ready for some fiber filled reading, my entry is there waiting for them. But since school started, my Thursday evenings are spent watching these folks:

High school marching band is pretty exhausting business if you ask me, and I'm just watching from the sideline. These kids learn their marching music in music class and do marching related work outs in PE. Every Wednesday morning they meet at 7am for field practice; every Thursday night they practice on the football field for almost four hours; Friday night is either more practice or perform at football game; Saturday is either a full day practice or competition. We are about half way through the season, one competition down, three more to go, with the last competition in southern California -- a full weekend affair.

So there you see, I have been busy during my regularly scheduled blogging time.

While we are here, let me show you my latest yarn acquisition.

Two skeins of ever so gorgeous Tosh Merino Light, waiting to become Deep Sea Wanderer.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!
