Cool Mornings & Fluffy Bathrobes

I haven’t had a fluffy bathrobe in ages, and I hate shopping for clothes in stores these days, so I ordered something from Land’s End. It’s great! There is nothing like waking up to a 65° house and grabbing a warm bathrobe while the coffee is brewing and the house warming up. So, here I sit, propped up in my recliner, laptop in my lap, just finished my mug of coffee and planning what’s left of my morning.

We’ll be able to open the house before long, just like the last few days, and enjoy the fresh air and birdsong…and the donkey next door. The donkey is a hoot and a half. No way I can hear that critter braying and not laugh out loud.

Calf crop from a couple of years ago…

Audrey took calves to the sale barn this morning. One of them, Don Jalapeño, caught everyone’s attention and one of the guys grabbed his phone to tell someone to ‘get down here’. The bull is a full blood Charolais and his bull calves look just like him, curly face and all. Plenty of people in the area want a good bull without having to pay for a registered, pure blood animal. People are literally running to the sale barn to see what Audrey has brought in. And before any of the calves can get unloaded and into a pen, they stand there and lick anyone who gets near them. They are used to being around our grandchildren and following them around like pets in the pasture. Grover follows them around like a pet!

Grover is much, much bigger than he looks in this photo. I’ll have to get a better pic of him the next time I’m at the farm.

It’s after 10:00 am and time for me to get the lead out and start moving. Have a wonderful Thursday, ya’ll. God bless.

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.
