Here Comes September!

Can you believe it? We are running out of another month and September is just around the corner. I like September. My daughter was born in September. It’s when we begin to see some relief from the summer heat in Texas. September is when school used to start when we were kids, right after Labor Day. How times change!

Looks like all that rain from the hurricane will miss us this time around but we might have some pop-up thunderstorms later today and then we are in for some more high temps. I’m thinking about how nice it will be to be able to open the house in the mornings and let in some fresh, cooler air. That will be a good time to tackle the window washing chore.

Another thing I’m looking forward to is getting out and taking a walk along the creek with Brad. Hopefully our neighbor can make time to mow for us and get the pasture back under control which will make it nicer for walking. It’s been too long since I went to the range with Brad. These days we drive rather than walk since it’s over a quarter of a mile to the range from the house. That used to be a nice walk for me but my cranky ankle objects to it these days.

I also need to think about inventorying my yarn and spinning fiber. It’s easy to forget what is lurking in my studio, especially inside those big plastic bins and having a list would be so helpful.

It’s 10:00 am and I need to get Brad up. He had a long nap yesterday and we stayed up well past midnight but he needs his morning meds, as do I. And I really need some coffee right about now. And knitting. Coffee and knitting. Sounds good!

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.
