“In the depths of winter…”

Day is Done

… I find myself hoping that Camus is right. I could use an invincible summer right about now.

I spent the day spinning and working away on a project that involves the fleece from a Jacob sheep, a vast amount of graph paper and some particularly choice words. More later, when all can be revealed.

So far it’s going quite well, which is good, because I’m working to a deadline and have little room for error. To a certain point, these snow days have been helpful, as they’ve kept me home more than I want to be.

Katherine brought a friend home from school and they’re out in the dark, playing in the snow. I suppose I should be a “good mother” and call them in, but the kid in me is more tempted to bring them out flashlights and leave them to it.

Au milieu de l’hiver, j’apprenais enfin qu’il y avait en moi un été invincible.

– Albert Camus
