Sunshine, Roadrunners and a Pot of Coffee!

I dragged myself out of bed later than usual since we stayed up a bit late last night. I’m not as spry as I was in my younger years and late nights make for groggy mornings. Brad needs to sleep so I’m being quiet and letting him get some rest.

I opened the blinds and went out to open the garage doors and let the breeze blow through when I spied our resident roadrunner out near the driveway. I can never manage to get a good photo of that rascal. He rarely sits still long enough so I settled for an online pic.

There is something so cheerful about watching a roadrunner scamper around looking for tasty goodies in the morning, tail up one second, down the next. They are such studious birds. The sight brightened my day along with the bright sunshine and a nice breeze. It’s warm outside and will be hot later so it’s nice to be able to enjoy a little time outdoors before it’s like an oven out there this afternoon.

I’m thinking it’s time to start the coffee brewing and the aroma will probably help drag Brad out of bed sooner rather than later, but he might just enjoy lying in bed in a quiet house smelling the coffee before getting upright.

Here’s to a blessed day to one and all. May your day be sunny and your coffee be hot!

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.
