We Are Blessed

Our Backyard

It is another lovely day in NE Texas. It’s 80° with a light breeze so I went for a stroll and took the camera. We only go to town when it’s necessary and enjoy staying at home as much as possible now that Brad is retired.

There is so much highway construction in our area that it can be dangerous on the main traveled roads so we tend to take back roads to get to our destinations when possible. The route can be a bit longer but we avoid slow downs due to construction so it usually works out to about the same time per trip anyway.

I went for a chiropractic adjustment this morning and stopped for a couple of things at a small Walmart and then picked up salads for lunch and pot pies for dinner from our local coffee shop so we are set for the day.

I’m a couple of rounds away from starting the decreases for the top of the hat I’m working on and then I’ll get back to a pair of socks that need the ribbing finished. I’ve got several new pairs of socks in my drawer and four more pairs to finish, just ribbing on three pairs and the fourth pair has a pattern on the top of the sock that will continue in place of ribbing on the top of the sock.

It’s a perfect time to sit and knit and let Brad get some rest. He didn’t make it to the chiropractor this morning but he is beginning to feel better. Once that sciatic nerve gets inflamed it sometimes needs a steroid pack to calm it down.

I think I’ll put on Rumble and watch Bongino’s podcast while I work on the hat…

Path through the woods.

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.
