Stormy Day

Cup of coffee on a rainy autumn day

Our rain finally arrived. I made a trip to the chiropractor this morning with only a little rain coming down. We both had an afternoon appointment and while we were gone it started raining harder. Much. Harder. A couple of times we encountered flash flooding in a construction area and water was splashing across the windshield of the pickup to the extent that we couldn’t see what was in front of us. Thankfully no one stopped suddenly ahead of us. We stopped for a few minutes on the way home to let the worst of the storm go past us. That was not fun.

At least I made progress on the sampler scarf while Brad did the driving and I should be able to finish the mini skein I’m working on now and begin the next one before I head off to bed later. My aim is to knit one mini skein per day. So far so good. I’m on the third skein now and I’m a little more than halfway through it.

I’ve been trying to decide on a cowl pattern for another set of mini skeins and I may just find a few lace patterns in one of my pattern books and create my own. I can change patterns with each mini skein.

I stopped to pick up pizza for lunch on my way home from the chiropractor and decided to go by the coffee shop for a couple of their chicken pot pies for dinner. It was a perfect evening for pot pies. We no longer buy frozen pot pies after eating CJ’s pies. They freeze well and I’ve got two more in the freezer for another meal next week.

I think breakfast will include fresh eggs in the morning. They haven’t been refrigerated yet so I’ve left them out on the kitchen counter. I might have to buy an egg basket!

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.
