Quiet Mornings

I woke up earlier than usual today and realized I hadn’t scheduled anything for my usual 7 am post. So, here I sit thinking about how blessed we are to be living in a quiet rural area, waking up in the morning to the sounds of silence in the house and outdoors.

It’s another cool start to the day. Like yesterday it’s 68° and likely won’t get much above 90° today. We are looking at much hotter weather in a couple of days so we’ll enjoy this while we can.

We don’t have any plans to speak of for today. Brad had physical therapy yesterday so he needs to take it easy. I need to get to town and pick up the mail and find a couple of birthday cards for family members. I thought I still had a few but my card stash has dwindled. Today is our son-in-law’s birthday and next week is my sister-in-law’s birthday.

It’s 7:15 am and I think I may go ahead and start a pot of coffee and let Brad sleep a bit longer. He may want breakfast from the coffee shop or something simple like a bagel and a cup of yogurt. I put in a grocery order and picked it up yesterday on the way home from my chiropractor’s appointment so the fridge and the pantry are well stocked.

I need to check with our daughter to see if she has plans out at the farm for David’s birthday and see if she needs us to bring anything. We usually get a 12-pack of Dos Equis which they like. Brad prefers ZigenBock, a Texas beer and we keep it on hand at our house.

Time to get moving, start the coffee brewing and have my morning devotional followed by more sock 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.
