Good Morning, Monday!

Temps were supposed to be in the mid 40’s last night. Ahem. Right. Once again, we set the heat pump on regular heat setting and go to bed only to wake up and discover it’s 35°…after the sun is up! I don’t like the idea of the system struggling during the night when we could have put it on emergency heat before we headed to bed. It doesn’t happen that often and we’ll probably just start using emergency heat at night to be on the safe side.

Thank goodness for good coffee, especially after a sleepless night. We normally make enough coffee in the morning for each of us to have a 16 oz mug full, which we did this morning. But, it wasn’t enough so Brad just made us each another mug of coffee and things are looking better. I don’t know if it’s my imagination or not, but I swear my joints feel better in the morning after I’ve had my coffee. I might even try a little knitting today.

We love our Black Rifle Coffee subscription. The first roast we tried was their JB, Just Black, and it’s our favorite. It’s a medium roast with a hint of chocolate that doesn’t make me jittery even though it’s not decaf. I had to drink decaf for years because most regular coffee has too much caffeine in it, and forget Starbucks! That stuff tastes burnt and their decaf has more caffeine than most other brands of regular coffee! I like that BRCC is a Veteran owned business and I’m glad they are doing well, in spite of all the SJW nonsense and BS aimed their direction.

I’m old enough to remember when we shopped at businesses who carried what we wanted, in quantities we wanted, when we wanted it, and that was it! Supply and demand. Better products made a better business and better service brought in customers. Now, businesses are becoming political and shoving their ideologies down our throats, and individuals and other businesses are going after those business owners who refuse to become left-wing liberal loons.

We stopped buying Coke products when the company insulted us because of the color of our skin, I stopped shopping for My Pillow products at the big box stores and simply order from Mike directly, and I appreciate discovering new products and suppliers from people like Bongino. I like Made In America. I hate all this made in China crap that doesn’t last. I like having choices and not having to settle for lesser quality in the products I buy. And I refuse to put money in the pockets of manufacturers who insult me. Yeah, I know. We can’t avoid being insulted in the world we live in today, but I’m damned if I’ll pay for the privilege! Whatever happened to ‘The Customer is Always Right’?

There is a small handful of people in this country who would have the rest of us believe that Capitalism is evil. These are the same people who want to take what we have, give it to people who aren’t even citizens of this country, and tell us how to live our lives. Of course, they will get to keep their expensive homes and millionaire incomes while they tax the ‘little’ people out of existence so we all just give up and live off of the government. Not. Happening. But, by all means, keep up the good work, DemonRats. More and more people, you know…the ones you thought were as stupid as you are, have figured it out and are saying, not only NO, but Hell NO! to your communist plans for this country. We outnumber you. We’re smarter than you. We’ll be right here, living our lives and doing what we please, long after you are gone and forgotten.

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.
