I couldn’t resist going out to get this photo of the clouds and the sun through the tops of the trees a few minutes ago. Makes me smile!
I have never been a morning person but lately I am loving the early mornings. I have a sneaking suspicion that the detox has something to do with it because I have energy even though I’m not taking supplements while I am detoxing. Hmmm. Interesting.
Yesterday I got caught up on shopping and laundry so today I will focus on planning some meals in advance. The freezer is stocked, there is ground beef and chicken thawed and ready to cook and the crockpot is calling to me. I’m thinking of a chicken dish with boneless chicken breasts, carrots, onions, peas and some egg noodles. And hamburger patties made from the ground beef, ready to cook when we want them.
So. That’s taken care of and I’m off to finish up the latest dishcloth for Audrey’s kitchen and think about how much we are looking forward to spending time with her and David and the kids this week. Life is 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.
