Wonderful friends and co-workers

I’ve let time slip away from me and I really need to get a handle on it. A week ago this past Friday the vo-ag department at school had their awards ceremony. I had intended to go, but instead I gave into a miserable sinus headache and I will regret this for some time to come…I think. I found out the following week that they had honored me at this ceremony for helping them with the A/V equipment they use (my job!) and judging some of their programs (so not work to me!) Not only did they say many kind things about me but they gave me a huge basket of their yarn!!!! Over the past 4 years I have steadily purchased their yarns and made them into market bags and hats.This is yarn that was spun from sheep that the vo-ag program raised and it just tickles me to be able to pop over on my lunch break to take advantage of their stock. To receive the basket of yarn (at home I divided it into 2 baskets) makes me teary eyed every time I think of it.

I would like to say here that I have enjoyed myself with our ag teachers and staff. They have a deliciously wicked sense of humor and really aren’t afraid to use it. Our timing is such that one of us always seems to be able to diffuse or amuse the others when necessary and the collective know-how is wonderful. I am not only humbled by their physical generosity, but their emotional generosity as well and I can’t imagine working anywhere else.


  1. Refreshing words and sentiment, Mare! What a lovely win/win environment in which the students have the benefit of learning!! Good for all of you!

    • It really is a great situation. These are people who have the information and know-how to raise the fiber animals I one day hope to raise. Plus the kids are wonderful. It’s just cool. LOL
