Busy Day!

Yesterday was busy and so was today and I totally forgot to post an article for this morning. So, here goes…

We had planned to spend a little time at the farm last night but it was awful outside, still over 90° after dark and the heat index was hovering at 100°. There wasn’t a breath of air moving and I started getting wheezy from the smell of smoke in the air. I think there was a grass fire west of the farm and we were just beginning to get the smell of the smoke from it. We only stayed a few minutes, just long enough to take David his birthday card and cash, a case of Dos Equis and some ammo. He is a very happy guy.

Today Brad had lunch with a friend and I took the time to get my hair cut, pick up some packages at the post office and grab some lunch on my way home.

We had an appointment in town at 4pm but had to leave early and will reschedule another time. No big deal. We were both tired and grouchy and just wanted to come home. Good choice. The rest of the afternoon was great and we needed out of the heat and back in our comfortable surroundings. The temperature was 100° in town and the heat index was 105°. Not fit weather for man or beast. Hopefully the hot weather is behind us now.

I’ve got an appointment in the morning that should go quickly and then I’ll run by the car wash and get the SUV washed. I can detail it myself when I get back home.

I’ve spent so much time knitting lately that I’ve not done much reading and I would like to get back to Dan Bongino’s “Exonerated” on my Kindle.

I took the time to remove some stuff off both of my Kindle readers. I disabled Alexa and removed all my photos from both devices and the cloud as well. I no longer have anything linked to my calendar, no games downloaded, only one gmail address set up. All I need either Kindle for is reading books or pdf files I’ve downloaded, mostly knitting patterns.

I spent a little time today removing recurring payments from my Paypal account so I can cancel it. It was great when I needed it for business and people were paying me for downloaded patterns, but I don’t need it for that anymore and I’d like to keep things as simple as possible with regard to online shopping/bill paying.

I found the thinner aluminum wire for the mission rosaries and I’ve set out my tray with wire, rosary tool, beads, crucifixes and centers and I’m ready to get to work. I’ll work on that project in my workroom instead of carting it in the living room and cluttering things up again. This wire will be easier to work with and making the rosaries will go much quicker.

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.
