Spooner Advocate- Springbrook/Trego Column- November 5, 2015

Good morning. As I traveled into Hayward this morning it was sort of sunny at my place and then it was sprinkling heavy in Hayward! Guess I just can't get away from it! LOL It makes me a little sad to see all the trees looking so naked! Its great that all the pine, evergreens don't lose their color. I look forward to moving into the coming season, its a time to regroup, look back and be grateful, look forward and be hopeful. As most of the earth takes a rest and renews itself  I would like to think the same thing should apply to us humans as well. How about making some small goals, read an extra book this winter, learn to knit. Maybe do some much needed cleaning and purging...this could be belongings but it may apply to yourself as well. Set some goals for the coming year. Personally I will be looking for the next step in my college career for 2016. I want to knit  more and SPIN MY OWN YARN! I want to travel to Canada! I want to spend an entire weekend on Madeleine Island! I want to bead more items and hopefully sell some of the items that I have made. I want to learn to fish, got to get the gear and I want to target practice- need a gun! So sit down and take a couple minutes to write some ideas down, then go forth and have fun with it!

Went to the Tweed Museum of Art on Friday and first of all what a lovely gallery! I would highly recommend going if you haven't already. Mikhaila, her friend Sarah and I all went to a fashion show that was just spectacular!  This was such a beautiful, informative and inspirational show I can't even explain all the ways that it touched me. The work that went into these pieces of clothing is just spectacular! They are each a work of art unto themselves! I suggest that you go check out the website Be prepared to be moved by the beauty, the history, the talent that went into each of these pieces! Chi-miigwech to Delina White, Lavender Hunt and Sage Davis for your vision, all the other helpers and creators of the clothing/jewelry and to the graceful models. You are all an inspiration!
Now is the time to get some calls made to set-up plowing and shoveling for the winter. Plan ahead so that you are not snowed in, unable to get out. Also stick some blankets, a jacket, some boots, hats and gloves in the car so that you are ready if the weather changes while you are out. Do you have a broom, ice scraper in the car? How about the shovel and sand or ice melt by the door?? Get things together now before the snow flies!!

If anyone is missing a goat please feel free to call me. I had a neighbor bring over the goat being he found it walking down Co Hwy A. I am glad that the neighbor to the time to bring the goat to my house as I sure wouldn't have wanted it to get hit. I am sure someone must be missing their goat so please call and give me a description of it. If the owners are not found than it will just stay here at my house, Snickers needs a friend.
