Feels Like Fall!

It’s 65° outside this morning! The sun is just beginning to peek through the trees. No breeze. Quiet. Smells like Fall is coming.

Yesterday was a really nice day and we got the new chain installed at the road to deter people from coming down the driveway at night. My energy level is better than it’s been in ages and we really enjoyed being outdoors.

We’re looking forward to seeing our daughter later today to celebrate her birthday a day late. David and the kids had things planned for her yesterday and we decided to let them have the day together and go out today for a visit. Brad and I each have gifts for her and we always give her a card with money in it to do something for herself. I think her hope was not to have to cook on her birthday and I’m pretty sure David and the kids had that covered.

I’m still working on my stack of dishcloths for her kitchen and today I’ll see about making one of the Swiffer covers. Or two. They work up fairly quickly.

I bought a new tee shirt that I haven’t worn yet. Showed it to Brad yesterday and he just shook his head. I’ll wear it with my red MAGA hat, lol.

I’ve got plenty of time before I need to get ready for Mass and I’ll spend that time with my morning devotional. Brad just left for church. The kids are staying home one more Sunday. It’s not been quite long enough since Sarah has been over feeling like crud and she needs her rest. The rest of the kids are doing well.

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.
