Taking it Easy

Allergies are kicking my butt this weekend and I had to get my Relief Band out and charge it. Sure helps with the nausea from sinus drainage until my allergy meds can kick in. At least I’m able to enjoy my knitting and reading.

Brad’s back down at his shop cleaning and sorting. He’s got a big air compressor that he hasn’t used in years that needs work done on it . He has a much smaller one that sits on the end of one of his work benches that is perfect for his needs. He’s going to take the big one out to David at the farm and see if he can get it working. I’m pretty sure he has a use for it at the farm and in his workshop.

It’s overcast and a tad humid today, but we’ve had the house open for quite a while. There was a bit of breeze earlier but it’s dying down now. When Brad gets back to the house we’ll probably close up and turn on the A/C again. Weird weather, even for Texas. You can see how hazy it is in the photo below, out at the farm.

Big Mama had her calf this morning! Audrey doesn’t know yet if its a bull calf or a heifer, but it will either be named Tony or Ziva, depending on sex.

It’s a gorgeous calf. Big Mama is Black Angus and Grover the bull is full blood Charolais. They make beautiful calves!

Audrey emailed us the photos. We haven’t been out to the farm yet since we are both still a bit congested, but we should be able to go visit later in the week. We will probably have our family Christmas get together next weekend, if everyone is well enough. Better late than never!

It felt strange staying home from church again. I miss Sunday Mass and I’ll be glad to be over this crud and back to a normal routine soon. I miss the music and incense and, of course, the Eucharist!

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.
