Christmas is Almost Here

The photo is from a couple of years ago. We don’t have our tree or decorations up yet and we haven’t done our shopping either. I’m feeling better but Brad is still very congested and he’ll need to contact our M.D. in the morning. I should be able to make a trip to town tomorrow for a few things and when he feels better we’ll see about putting the tree up later in the week.

Out at the family farm the grandchildren are still under the weather, as is their mother. If necessary we can postpone our Christmas celebration til everyone is feeling better. This isn’t the first Christmas one or more of us has been ill and it won’t be the last. At least no one is seriously ill or in the hospital. Thank you, God.

My homepage is set for our local KXII TV station weather page. This was the lead-in this morning…

“We go from 20′s this morning to 80′s by Christmas weekend….”

Oh, boy.

The sun is shining, it’s above freezing now, no breeze at all. It looks like a gorgeous day out but we will stay indoors until tomorrow. I’m going to work on my knitting in a little while but I’ll start off with Cryofreeze on my hands and hope it will do the trick. I’ve got a couple of books I’m reading and a load of laundry to toss in the washer later. Yup, I live such an exciting life!

Actually, I love my life. Brad and I are both happy and content after decades of him working his butt off to get to the point where we can sleep until we’re ready to get up and do what we like, when we like. I’m 67 and he’ll be 69 in February. Retirement is a blast and it took a lot of years to get here.

Have a blessed Sunday afternoon, 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.
