Oops! Lost a Day!

I got busy yesterday, was butting heads with my laptop, and totally forgot to post something on my blog. I think I may have made a huge mistake, but I backed up everything on my laptop to One Drive and now it is ‘syncing’ all my files. Ahem. I hope I haven’t messed things up. Time will tell. Laptop had been acting up and running sort of jerky, have to click more than once with my mouse to get pages to open or games to play online. Tried a system restore. It didn’t work. Oh, well. Today is another day and maybe ‘My Precious’ will behave better. Yup. That’s right. I named my laptop.

I’m still waiting for my photos to finish syncing so I can find what I want for this post…

I was looking on deposit photos for something and suddenly remembered that today is my birthday. Kinda snuck up on me. Brad already gave me a birthday gift when he gave me a leather shoulder holster for my 9mm Sig 239. It’s got night sights and a Nitron finish. When I picked it up the first time at Gun Masters in Plano, Texas late in 2006 it fit my hand perfectly. Actually, it was a personal sidearm for the store employee who was trying to help me find something that fit my hand comfortably. I didn’t find anything in the case and he pulled his out of his waistband, downloaded it and handed it to me and voila! It fit! He looked at Brad and said, “I think she found her pistol.” We paid $750 for it, new in the box, and it’s $1,200, used, if you can find one. Sig stopped production on the P239 in 2018. I’m glad I bought it when I did.

I had planned to be on mini skein number five by now for the mini skein sampler but I’m still working on number four. I got distracted looking through my downloaded patterns for another mini skein project. And started another project. I’m hopeless. I like plain stocking stitch sometimes and cast on for a tubular scarf that I will graft together when I’ve got it long enough to suit me.

Anyway, today I’m back to the mini skein sampler, feet up, comfy in my recliner. I woke up chilled and turned the heat on to get the chill off the house. It’s 50° outside this morning and it was 68° in the house. We’ve been keeping the thermostat set on 72° this summer but that seems a bit warm to me when the heat is running so we’ll set it on 70°. Once the house is comfortable we turn the heat off. Love our heat pump!

Guess I’ll get back to my knitting and try to decide what we’ll do for meals today. We just had Pizza from Pizza Hut a couple of days ago and I made some soup last night with ground beef, smoked sausage, corn, black beans, red onion and homemade broth. Half of the left-overs is in the fridge and half is in the freezer.

I’ve got it! I want dinner from Chili’s with one of their Margaritas! Still not sure about lunch…

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.
