Remember back in September, I had a fortune cookie predict that I would receive something nice in the mail? Well, friends, never never never doubt the power of fortune cookies. Do not tempt fate by even mocking them.
When I arrived home from work today, there was a large box by the door, which puzzled me. What the heck?, I thought. (Honest, that really was the 4-letter word I used mentally... it was a such tiring day at the office that I didn't even use a more inflammatory 4-letter word as I typically might have.) I figured my husband must have ordered something, but then I saw the box was addressed to me. Huh? What the...? And then I saw the box was shipped from 13 Mile Lamb & Wool Company and I spontaneously broke out into a big happy dance. Beautiful wool fleeces had arrived!!
I dragged the box inside to open it. The dogs found it pretty fascinating, too, enough to even drop the toy they had been playing with next to the box. This isn't the best picture, since Maddy moved and is a bit blurry, but you had to see the size of this box!
And here is my loot - over 20 pounds of raw organic fleeces raised in Montana on a predator-friendly ranch. I love the natural colors - black, white, moorit & grey. I am in wooly goodness heaven.
Oliver was fascinated by the sheepy fragrance and kept sticking his face in the fleece bags. Here he is examining the moorit fleece. He was quite serious about thoroughly performing his quality control work.
I cannot wait to get to work on these fleeces! Behold the power of wool: my day went from tiring/boring/blah to happy dance/joy/anticipation in mere seconds.
