So where did I go yesterday that was better than doughnuts? Better than naughty doughnuts? Black Sheep Gathering, which was held in Eugene last weekend. I came away with several skeins of yarn, a hankering to learn to spin, and a long mental list of all the kinds of sheep Knatolee needs to get for her new farm. Shetlands are petite and come in lots of colors and have really sweet faces, Navajo-Churros have nifty horns and also come in many colors, Ramboullets are big with soft soft noses, and of course Merinos have such lovely fleece. Then there are the goats--and I actually prefer goats to sheep, personality-wise--the cashmeres and the angoras and the pygoras. Knatolee, you need some of each!
Today we went to the Oregon Zoo, which is a really nice one. We spent about 3 hours there but didn't see everything because Thing2 got cranky and had a meltdown over pretty much nothing. So we left. The whole way to the car, she was crying piteously, "Mommy! I'm sorry! I promise I'll be good! I don't want to leave. I'm sad!!" I am a mean, mean Mommy.
