Come On, Autumn!

Good Morning! I’m late to logging on for my morning post and didn’t think to write a post and schedule it for this morning.

It’s Thursday. It’s HOT outside. There is a bit of a breeze, sort of. Nothing to do outdoors, thankfully. I’m caught up on laundry and dishes and both bathrooms are clean. I’ll do a little dusting later and make sure we both have something to eat at mealtimes, but that’s about all I have going on today so I suppose I will finish the book I’m reading and work on my knitting.

I may end up going in to see our family doctor, not sure. I sent her a message through the patient portal but she hasn’t had time to respond. Something bit me a couple of days ago while I was sorting laundry and tossing clothes in the washer. I didn’t see what it was, but I felt a sharp sting on my right forearm. Not bad like a wasp or a bee, but I was aware of it at the time and there was an obvious red dot where something nailed me!

I got out the Young Living Purification oil and that seemed to calm it down a bit. Now, two days later and there are three little red dots, side by side, not one. And there is a growing knot under the skin and it itches like crazy. I’m wondering if there might have been a spider in the laundry I was sorting and I just didn’t see it. I never feel mosquito bites but they make obvious welts afterwards so I’m really not sure what this is. I do tend to react to insect bites more than anyone else I know. We shall see.

I’ve been wearing a pair of my new hand-knitted socks the past couple of days and giving it a rest from the compression stockings. These are much more comfortable and I’m really enjoying them. Just the right fit, soft and cushioning on my feet. Yup. I’m spoiled rotten.

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.
