Another Rainy Day

We had a great time with our grand-daughter, Rachel, yesterday and it was pouring down rain when I took her home. We meant to get the wildlife cameras back up in the tree grove north of the house while she was here but it started raining not long after she and Brad arrived and rained the entire time she was here. It’s still raining this morning but just a slow, steady rain and no downpours so far today. We need the rain and it is a welcome sight. It’s usually hot and dry for the month of August in NE Texas. It’s 73° and might reach the low 80’s today.

This will be a perfect day to work on my knitting and maybe finish reading Bongino’s book, “Inside the Bubble”. I’m making progress on the Monkey Socks and trying to keep my gauge even. It’s easy to end up knitting a bit tighter as I go along with the decreases in the pattern so I need to pay attention.

We have an errand to run later this morning and I hope we can miss any downpours and maybe bring home take-away for lunch. We’re watching a good movie on TV at the moment, “A Bridge Too Far”, and we need to stop and get some breakfast. This movie came out the year Audrey was born and I had forgotten how many well known actors were in it.

Time to get out of the recliner and make some progress in the kitchen…

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.
