wherein you will find ramblings about fiber dyeing, spinning, knitting,... and photos (sometimes), family and friend updates, rants when i need to, lack of upper case letters, weird punctuation and freedom of expression (especially mine)! To answer the question of where did it come from... this "twisted mom/twisted sandy" thing. ...during the 90's a group of my spinning students became spinning friends, which morphed into Twisted Sisters, which evolved into calling me the Twisted Mom.

Glendi - Greek for celebration
today we went to a Greek festival at the St. John Orthodox Greek Church in Beaverton and took the grandkids. ate some authentic Greek food, watched the dancing, took a tour of the church and listened to the choir do a short concert (beautiful!), kids spent an hour watching the "reptileman" do his show... and loved it so much that Zylie wanted to go back to his next show.
kids had a baklava sundae... ice cream, crumbled baklava over it, then whipped cream, drizzled carmel and topped with a cherry. didn't take them long to finish that off!
these were kids from Agia Sophia school who gave a dance demonstration... very good.
and Zylie got her face painted!
it was a good day and i enjoyed it. gotta say that i sure don't have the energy, stamina and patience that i used to have.
