Today Is The Day

Our new beds will be delivered this morning. A queen size for the master bedroom and a full size for my bedroom. Brad doesn’t really need a king size bed and the queen size won’t take up so much room.

The old mattresses will be hauled off and the old bed frames will go on the scrap pile. I have new sheets for the queen bed and I’ve already got two sets of sheets for the full bed that are fairly new, from the My Pillow website. We’ve had Mike’s pillows for quite a while, as well as mattress toppers for both beds, but we won’t need the mattress toppers anymore so those will be hauled off as well.

I spent a good bit of time yesterday cleaning and getting ready for the old beds and frames to be removed, moving spinning wheels and baskets out of my bedroom into my workroom for the time being. There isn’t anything in the way of taking the old bed out of the master bedroom. It’s a straight shot out the bedroom doors, thru the dining room and out the front door for both beds now.

I also got the front porch swept off and now I need to use the leaf blower in the garage. Leaves, grass and dirt have blown in since I last cleaned it out and I’m tired of tracking all that into the house. I’d like to get that done this morning before the beds are delivered.

The kitchen is clean, I’ve got laundry to do today and aside from that I’ll be working on my sweater and getting the bedding on our new beds. I have a few more inches to go before beginning the ribbing for the bottom edge. I might even start the sleeves today since I didn’t get as far as I wanted to yesterday.

I finally managed to get the pot roast going yesterday and it was wonderful. I forgot to get a photo before I served it…but here it is in the pot when I started it. The garlic really made a difference in the flavor and I added celery to the potatoes, carrots and onion. I seasoned it with Adobo and freshly ground black pepper.

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.
