i added a second row of porcupine hair to the 24 inch white roach i made. the front hair is 8 and 1/2 inch long. it takes very little movement to make it bounce. it looked alright with a single row of hair but it looks much better now. i upped the price on it because of i used more of my long hair.
i now have 6 roaches done. i haven’t posted pictures of two of them on my site yet. gotta figure out a way to get a good picture of them. i dyed three deer tails and the yarn i make the base with yesterday. i am ready to start on another roach. this one will be royal blue i will make it with a double row of hair in front.
we got ice last night. i seen on tv that the tribe shut down today. royal valley is in a two hour delay. don’t know how the roads are. don’t really matter we will stay put today. i ran out of my meds. i will have wait til tomorrow to get refills.
got a text from my niece the roads have been sanded. its just our driveway up to the clear road that is icy.
we had an ice storm a few years back. i could hear the trees popping then loudly crashing to the ground up and down the creek. that was kinda eerie. the storm knocked out our electricity for two weeks. people were given rooms and meals at the casino. some had electricity and others came from Topeka to get a room. we didn’t get one because they already had their quota of 100 rooms.
we stayed home and used our wood stove and kerosene lamps for the next two weeks. i lived like that back in the old days. it reminded me of those times. we ended up losing a large supply of food we had in the freezer. we started to do more canning after that. now we can, freeze and dry food.
maybe i will get on the treadmill again today. i walked yesterday but i will walk consecutive days. i am not over doing it like the doc told me. he said find a happy medium. last time i over did it and the arthritis in my knee hurt so bad i kinda limped when i walked. not now.
i will have to feed my dogs and chickens. they have to eat every day. ol’ misho gotta be careful walking on the ice. i also have to keep the fire going. when i get done with my chores i will work on my next roach. ice storm or not, i stay busy.
