Meanwhile, we're finding all sorts of things to do to keep ourselves busy, and to get reacquainted with Taos. We're visiting with friends, who we now realize are our Taos Family, and who we've missed terribly. And lucky for us, there are loads of events in town this time of year. Today we went to the Taos Wool Festival, always a favorite for me, since I love to knit, in my own unskilled and humble way. The perfect fall weather is almost magically holding up, day after day, and it was just perfect for wandering through the booths of beautiful, bountiful yarns and fibers.
And we met some darling animals, including a baby yak, and a mama and baby alpaca duo who just made me want to go home and start an alpaca ranch. I mean, hey - we have an acre. It's more or less become de-landscaped in the last year. Why not get some cute, fuzzy animals and settle back in here?
And then I remembered... oh yeah... we live in a trailer. And we like to travel. And we have to sell our house because we're no longer willing to trade all our time and energy just to maintain it. And animals are a lot of work. Just about the time all these thoughts were racing through my head, a woman came by wearing the dearest little hand-knitted shrug. It was like a Note From God, a friendly smack upside the head, reminding me that now is not the time to Acquire Stuff, but to...
Actually, I very much appreciate it when God is not vague. Sometimes I just want to know what's expected of me. Thanks God. Message received. But while I wait, sort of patiently, I hope you don't mind if I keep finding amusing field trips to keep me from going nutso. I'm sure you understand.
