Technology Surprise


I honestly thought I would HATE having a BlackBerry, but I have to admit, I actually kind of like having it.



Okay...Maybe Not THAT Much!
I do like having access to my e-mail, the web, FaceBook and a phone in such a small, pocket-sized device.

I'm also trying to learn when to just put it away. I've gotten to the point where I don't WalkBerry (especially in airports), I definitely don't DriveBerry...I would be a true hazard in that situation. I avoid ThadBerrying as much as possible, since I know how annoying it can be when someone you're with is focusing more on electronics than you.

Now I have just have to stop adding "Berry" to the ends of words and names and thinking it means something.

Garden State Sheep Breeders Fair
This past weekend, Thaddeus and I got to spend a few BlackBerry-free hours at this very small fiber festival in Flemington, NJ.



I went on Saturday, and the grounds (including the parking lot) were still quite muddy, and it drizzled on and off. This was lousy in terms of getting around the tents and parking, but it worked out well in terms of not having hoards of people to avoid.

I think Sunday was a much more popular day, but I couldn't go to meet up with BJ and Marilyn.

Here are some pictures of our time there.


















I only bought one thing while I was there, which was this lovely roving from Winter's Past Farm.



I bought it from Winter's Past Farm (the woman in the last picture with me that Thaddeus kindly snapped for me). I really loved the depth of color in her solid/kettle-dyed rovings and her choice in colors was very fine. I bought a total of about 1.5 pounds of Tunis roving in these two colors.
