Back To Normal!

We ended up postponing the Tuna Casserole last night because I was in town longer than expected so Brad called Pizza Hut and put in an order for me to pick up. Saw our M.D. and got her up to speed on what’s been going on. Got my long due lab work done. Seems I’ve lost thirteen pounds since I saw her last. Cool! I didn’t get a lot of knitting done while waiting to see the doctor or get my lab work done. The clinic was pretty much deserted at 3:45 on a Friday afternoon so I was in and out in about forty-five minutes.

Stopped and picked up some elderberry chews and Reed’s Extra Ginger Beer at our local health food store. Got the sugar-free this time since I’m battling a kidney infection. It’s sweetened with stevia so that will be good. If you like Ginger Ale you would love Reed’s Ginger Beer. It’s great to keep on hand for upset tummy and if you buy it in the bottles you can put the cap back on and stick it back in the fridge for later. Our grand-children love it and I try to keep it on hand for when they visit.

We take the elderberry during the fall and winter but since we are both recovering from surgeries and I have an infection it seemed like a good idea to boost our immune systems for the next few weeks.

Audrey gave me a quart of her canned cranberry concentrate when I stopped by the farm on my way home. I got to see baby Gabriel, now five months old and weighing in at eighteen pounds! Both the dogs came out to greet me as well as Joshua, Jacob and Rachel. Sarah was busy in the house. David was home from work and looked tired as usual.

They have the same problem we do with the grass being out of hand. Audrey may let the horses out to get the grass down in the next few days. We have a good riding mower to take out to the farm since we aren’t using it but it’s still too wet for them to mow either.

Yesterday was the first back to normal day I’ve had in two weeks. It was great to get out and run errands like I usually do. It was good to stop by the farm and see Audrey and David and the kids. As soon as Brad feels like an outing I’ll drive him out to the farm to see the kids. It will do him good to get out.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
