It’s November!

Here we are, starting another month. Yesterday was All Hallows Eve, today is All Saints Day and tomorrow is All Souls Day. The nights are getting colder but we still have the windows open by lunchtime.

BBC America has been showing Doctor Who episodes and I’ve watched a couple of them that I liked and that reminded me that I have a full set of discs from Christopher Eccleston thru Peter Capaldi. So, I got out my favorite series with David Tennant and started with the Christmas Invasion last night while working on my latest knitting project. It is the plain stocking stitch tubular cowl and I don’t even need to watch my hands as I knit so it goes faster for me that way.

I’d like to finish this project today if possible and move on to the next project with the last set of mini skeins. I got this far last night before it was time for bed.

Brad brought us lunch from Cotton Patch after church yesterday, salmon, rice and steamed veggies for me and chicken tacos for him. He also brought me a dozen and a half fresh eggs from the farm. I had sent him with my wire egg basket since Audrey said she had eggs ready. The basket is great for rinsing the eggs in the sink. After wiping them down and drying the basket I put them back in the basket to sit on the counter. I still have eight eggs from the last batch and I’m planning on scrambled eggs for our breakfast this morning, along with English muffins and blackberry preserves from Audrey’s kitchen.

It’ll be time to start the coffee soon. Have a blessed day, ya’ll.

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.
