Another fail...

I had big plans for today.  I was going to take pictures of lambs and write a lovely post describing their latest shenanigans.  (At least they're finally confined to their pen, and our garden is starting to grow.  We actually got enough lettuce for a salad the other night, without having to share it with sheep.  (They're actually not very good about sharing...))
 
Unfortunately, today was chicken butchering day, and doesn't the time just fly when you're having fun?

By the time we'd finished with the chickens, and with the people who came to pick up their chickens, and done the thousand other things that need doing on the rare occasion we actually get a day off together, I was too pooped to pic.

So, for lack of anything else to show and tell - here's a picture I took at NH S&W that I forgot to share.


 Yes, she's converted her exercise bike to power her spinning wheel.  (I can only think of the times I've gotten all excited about seeing a spinning class advertised in the paper, only to discover that it's actually just a class for riding exercise bikes.  Like that needs to be a class...)

No - I don't get it. Of what benefit to spinning (fiber) is it to power your wheel with your exercise bike? Will you get more yarn faster?

Or is this about exercising while spinning yarn - a double duty kind of thing? Is she really getting any exercise? (I'm asking - I certainly can't spin fiber fast enough to make an exercise bike an aerobic activity while spinning fiber.) ... /freaking word used for two things

Pretty amazing. Human ingenuity!
