I put in an online order yesterday evening to pick up groceries this morning at 8:00 am. They have always been ready early in the past. It’s 8:15 and no email from Albertson’s that the order is ready. I want to make one trip out of it and pick up breakfast at the coffee shop and get the mail at the post office as well but there is no point in going in now if my order isn’t ready, unless I can let the groceries wait until later.
I really want to have breakfast ready for Brad when he is up. I guess I just talked myself into going in for breakfast take-away and the mail. I’ll let the coffee wait til I get back.
Anyway, it’s quiet this morning. Sun is shining, no breeze to speak of and it’s 74°. We are having typical August weather here this week with temps just below 100° and the heat index around 103° so that is why I wanted to get to town and back early.
I’ll share a funny that I posted on Gab this morning…we fiber folks have a pretty good sense of humor. I found this online a couple of years ago. Enjoy.
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.
