You may have noticed things here weren’t quite right for a week or two. We are back up, but all my posts from the month of June were obliterated! Sigh. I suppose it’s not too much of a heartbreak, since I only wrote about five entries. Sadly all my wit and humor is gone for good, but the photos are still available, so here is a little recap of the month:

  • The family went on a fishing trip on Lake Erie. I hadn’t been in a boat for many years and it didn’t entirely agree with me. We did catch quite a few fish, so at least it wasn’t totally pointless.

We caught all these fish!

  • We helped run a Medieval Festival at the Christ Episcopal Church in Warren, OH. Rich and I stayed on site all weekend in our spectacular pavilion.

Ready for Medieval Festival tomorrow! #campout

  • To get ready for Woolfest I spent several days with my new drumcarder, a heap of multicolored fibers, and a marathon of superhero movies.

Carding with Captain America.

  • The new batts came out really great – thicker and more evenly carded.

  • Rich and I went to Woolfest at the end of the month. It was really fun and I wore one of my new dresses. Summer of dresses is happening!

Here I am at Woolfest. #fibershow

  • We walked around the beautiful Farmpark before the show started on Saturday and took a few pictures including this one of Rich in the arbor tunnel.

One great thing about Woolfest is that it is held at the Lake Metroparks Farmpark. Yes, it’s a bit of a mouthful, but it’s also an eyeful! We were able to camp onsite for the weekend, which was great. First, it cuts way down on expenses. Second, you are right there — no driving needed. Third, this park is beautiful, especially at 6:30 in the morning.

The negative: the restroom was rather far from the camping area, so you had to plan your trips. Or be willing to either pee in the field or run for it! We stayed for two nights and each morning I woke up exactly at 6:30 and headed up to the restroom. I can’t tell you how beautiful, serene, majestic, and quiet it was. I tried to take pictures on Sunday, but they probably don’t do justice to the rising sun.
