Time For Coffee!

It’s been ages since I spent some time at the local coffee shop and I think I’ll grab my knitting and my laptop and do that very thing. A breakfast croissant and an Americano sounds good to me.

I used to do this sort of thing on a weekly basis and meet someone for coffee while we worked on our knitting, but that friendship went by the wayside. It became clear to me that the people I was spending time with, the ones who shared my enjoyment of things knitting and spinning, really weren’t the sort of people I had anything else in common with.

One woman was a bossy know-it-all and never stopped talking. One woman was an emotional wreck and married to a control freak, but they moved to another state without even telling me. Oh, well. Such is life. I find I am pretty happy as I am these days, especially since Brad is retired, retired. That is, retired from full time law enforcement and retired from teaching and directing the police academy.

I think I’ll stop at the car wash on my way home from the coffee shop and get the outside of my dirty SUV cleaned up. I can do the interior when I get back to the house. We have a good shop vac that has a detachable blower and today would be a good day to use the leaf blower to clean out the garage, too. All we have to do is get both vehicles out of the way and it will be cleaned out in no time. Brad has spent a good bit of time sorting through stuff and tossing it so the shelves in the garage look a lot better. The least I can do is blow the dirt and leaves out after all his hard work.

We still need to get rid of the old Airdyne bicycle and make arrangements to get the riding mower and the cart that goes with it out to the farm. That will give us a lot more room in the garage and when the time comes to redo the floor in the house we’ll have some place to store the boxes of flooring while the work is being done.

Guess I will grab my insulated coffee mug and head for town. Have a blessed day, ya’ll. The weather here is awesome!

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.
