Summer Is Here

I think we have skipped our normal June weather and jumped right into July weather. At least that’s the way it seems lately. It’s in the mid 90’s and humid enough to drown frogs in NE Texas and we are only half-way thru June!

Our lawn guys came yesterday evening and got us caught up again. Hopefully the rain is through for a bit and it will be easier going for them in two weeks time when they mow again. They also hauled off the dead tree and limbs that came down on the fence several weeks ago. It looks so much better.

I didn’t get as far as I had hoped on the socks but I only need another inch and a half and I can start the gusset increases. These will go well with my denim slacks. I worked on them today while waiting to get an X-ray. I have the stent removed tomorrow and the urologist wanted an X-ray before he does the procedure. I’m not looking forward to it but I should feel a lot better when it’s out. At least that what everyone keeps telling me.

Brad had a bit of a rough session at PT today. Our regular guy, Jared, was on vacation last week and Taylor worked on him last Tuesday and Thursday. She is great and tends to go slow and easy. Jared is a bit more aggressive and it takes a lot out of Brad afterward. We went through the drive-thru for Chick Fil A after PT and then stopped at the gun store to pick up a pistol he had bought online. He won the auction and is thrilled to have a revolver he’s wanted for ages.

He fell asleep in his recliner shortly after we got home and I let him sleep until he was ready to wake up. We had chicken breasts, sweet corn and pinto beans for dinner. He’s off to shower and I’m going to work on my socks until it’s my turn to shower later. We found an episode of Death in Paradise to watch on streaming video since there is nothing on TV worth watching this evening. We’ll both have an early night since we need to get up earlier than usual in the morning to be at the clinic on time. I plan on not doing much of anything tomorrow, just resting and maybe a little knitting.

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.
