An Easy Fix

Our tech guy from Sparklight had us up and running in no time at all with the cable connection yesterday morning. He swapped out boxes and power cords, added an hdmi cord to help with the picture quality and we are good to go.

Funny thing…he did a double take when he spotted a photo on the wall above the desk in the living room, pointed at it and asked who the girl in the photo was, but before I could reply he said, “Is that Audrey?”

He recognized our daughter’s high school photo. He graduated a year ahead of her and his wife graduated the same year Audrey did. Small world. He’s a really nice guy and when I asked about the possibility of a second remote control he had one, programmed it for us and was on his way.

Speaking of Audrey, she likes the wire egg basket and I told her I can get more if she likes. I dropped by the farm for a few minutes yesterday and saw her and the kids. Baby Gabriel was fighting off going down for a nap. He doesn’t want to miss anything. Rachel told me all about a new calf, just days old. She really enjoys the farm animals. All four of the older kids were filling me in on the recent events in their lives, Audrey looked tired, as usual. But she is doing well and is happy. I won’t be surprised if Gabriel is walking this time next week. He’s still teething so everyone is losing sleep.

I managed to get the scarf finished yesterday. Finally. I need to put it and the hat that I knitted in to soak and then block them both. I’ve got to get moving this morning, forgot to have this post ready last night, and I need to go meet my new doctor. Time to hit the shower!

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.
