It’s Monday!

Even though I don’t work outside the home I still get that ‘Monday’ feeling at times. Nothing much happens on the weekend but with Monday mornings comes the rest of the week with stuff to do away from the house. I prefer staying at home and avoiding crazy people who don’t know how to drive or who should know how to drive but lose all that knowledge, leaking out their ears, as soon as they get behind the wheel and grab that darned smart phone.

It must have been in the mid 40’s again last night since it was 65° in the house when I got up this morning. It’s now 63° outside so I can turn the heat off before long and open the house to some fresh air and sunshine. First, I need coffee. I hear Brad up and about now so I’ll let him make coffee, maybe even a full pot for once. He seems to be moving a bit slow, says he played too hard yesterday. I know he enjoyed being out on the range with James and spending time with the grand-kids at church.

Hour and a half later:

I took pity on Brad and made him scrambled eggs with sauteed red onion and sharp white cheddar grated on top with a side of turkey bacon. He toasted the English muffins and poured our coffee. We both needed some protein and enjoyed some of our daughter’s home made jam on the muffins. She sent us a jar of blackberry jam and one of strawberry. YUM! The eggs were from the farm as well. I need to look around and see if I can find some extra egg cartons. I’ve got some store-bought eggs in the fridge that I should do something with and then give her the cartons. I prefer the cardboard egg cartons myself but some of what I bought comes in the see thru plastic ones.

I just found wire egg baskets online at Murray McMurray Hatchery and ordered the small one for me, holds 2 doz eggs, and the large one for Audrey, holds 5 doz eggs. The large one will be perfect for Miss Rachel to use when she gathers eggs and I can always order more baskets if Audrey needs them.

Time to start a load of laundry and clean the coffee maker. Since breakfast was later than usual we’ll skip lunch, have some fruit this afternoon around 3 pm and then dinner as usual at 6 pm. Yes. We live such hectic lives here in the country…

It’s now after 12 pm and the house is open and it’s 70° outside, just as I predicted. Darn. I’m good. The fresh air is nice.

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.
