Fiber Roving December 2018~~ Hello, it???s that time of the year when holiday traditions are very active, a time for family and friends to gather and celebrate each in their own way! Enjoy yourself!! I have good news for myself and a special reason to celebrate. As many of you know, I have been unable to drive for 6 months due to blacking out while driving. After over 5 months of much medical testing, we finally have the problem identified, and a solution. So on Dec 5th I had a pacemaker put in. The doctor said my heart is strong, but I have a short in the electrical part, like a spark plug not working or a wire loose. The pacemaker takes care of that and I am safe on the roads and elsewhere again. I am a free woman ??? oh happy day!! Today it really snowed, and it filled my heart with joy! The trees are dressed in white, the land looks clean and bright???.to say the least, I am very tried of rain. It also has been hard on the goats, water on top of ice, everything wet, it hasn???t been very cold, but cold enough that its hard on wet critters. Sheep can shed rain to a degree (lanolin), goats cannot, they just get wet, and don???t like it!! I don???t like being wet in 30 degree weather either. Maybe I empathize too much with my critters, but they have been looking miserable in the rain, and I have some older ladies in my herd. So, the snow was a reason to celebrate and smile at the beauty of something so simple as snow! For any of you that have not been to recent meetings, it was decided that we would NOT have a December meeting, since many members have other obligations in December. Once again, NO DECEMBER MEETING! At the November Meeting of the Guild, we had an election of Board of Directors. We had four members who decided to continue. These are Monti Hightower, Lisa Lambert, Karen Porter and Linda Price-Albers. Our new Board Members are; MaryAnn Dyke, Kathy Morey, and Carol Sinenko for a total of seven board members, a good number, and a good mix. Their first meeting will be in Jan at which time officers will be elected. Their quarterly meetings will be one hour prior to our regular meetings at the library in one of the smaller conference rooms there. Happy Holidays to All!! Lee ????
