Merry Christmas, Ya’ll!

I pray all ya’ll are having a Blessed Christmas with family and friends, eating too much food and playing with the kids and grandkids. It’s 80° here in NE Texas and yes, the A/C is still on. Weird. But such is life!

We had Christmas brunch at the Blankenship house, consisting of scrambled eggs with chopped green onions, red and yellow bell pepper, grated smoked cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, and Cholula on flour tortillas. And coffee, of course! We slept in and woke well rested, both of us feel much better, as do the rest of the family at the farm.

In a few hours I’ll put the 5 lb chicken in our new oven to cook on convection setting and when it’s done I’ll use the air fry setting to cook our potatoes and carrots. I might throw some fresh green beans in after the other veggies are partly done. I’ll cut everything up, sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper, pop it all into the air fry basket with a cookie sheet on the bottom rack to catch drippings. Yum!

In the meantime I’ll be working on the second sleeve of my pullover…

…or reading a good book.

Have a Blessed Christmas Day!

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.
