A Perfect Fall Day in Texas

The sky is clear, there is a mild breeze blowing. It was 55° this morning as the sun was peeking through the trees before 8 am. It’s 73° at 12:30 pm and we have the house open and are enjoying the fresh air.

The storm passed over us with no damage last night and not a lot of rain. No hail. The winds did knock a dead branch out of one of the Ash trees which is nice. Who wants to climb a tree to get a dead branch down? Well, I can think of a 12 yr old grand-daughter named Rachel who would be up that tree in a flash without being asked, but I’m glad the wind did the job for us.

Brad is headed in to pick up food from the coffee shop. I have a taste for their Tuna Salad Plate for lunch and a Chicken Pot Pie for dinner.

He just got a call from our electrician, who is now retired, to give him some advice about the generator project. We are probably going to go with Home Depot or the company that makes the generator that Gary recommended. We have choices and we are making progress. The storm last night could have been a bad one, but the damage missed us, thank you, Lord! Just across the river in Oklahoma folks in some places had baseball sized hail. Yikes! We need to be prepared for power outages and not suffer through another days long rolling blackout. Once was enough for us.

I’m battling allergy symptoms and lack of sleep so I’m pretty much in the recliner for most of the day. I’ll work on my knitting and putter around on my laptop. The kitchen is clean, I don’t need to do laundry for a couple of days and now I won’t need to cook for the rest of the day. After we finish our lunch I’ll put on Rumble and watch Bongino while I knit.

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.
