Enjoying the Warmth While it Lasts

Caught a nice shot of the moon rising behind the trees just as the sun was setting yesterday evening. It was cooling off fast out there and I snapped a quick pic before getting back to the warm house.

Today it’s 60° and sunny and I’m hearing the satisfying sounds of my husband enjoying himself on our gun range on the back side of the property. His thumb is healing very well and he felt like getting some fresh air and sunshine this afternoon after running errands this morning and bringing us lunch.

He had a few things to drop off at the farm for Audrey, including that king size bed topper. It’s a My Pillow memory foam pad that should make some awesome dog beds for Waya and Zev.

I’m caught up with house chores and ready to spend some quality knitting time while watching Midsomer Murders reruns on Pluto TV via the Roku. Gosh. I am so spoiled. Who would have thought that we’d be able to have access to high speed cable internet four miles from town? It’s truly a blessing when there isn’t anything on cable TV worth watching. I mean, I love Lone Star Law reruns too, but it’s getting to where I have memorized a lot of the dialog!

Laundry is done. The kitchen is clean. Beds made first thing this morning. Our late lunch is hanging in there with me so it’ll be awhile until we need to eat again. Brad scored a couple of C.J.’s Coffee Cafe chicken pot pies and I wrapped them and tucked them away in the freezer. The fridge is packed with food that we need to eat. We’ve got extra containers of RC and Canada Dry Ginger Ale on the shelf in the garage, as well as a 12 pack of Ziegenbach and a 6 pack of Guiness. We’re set!

Audrey sent us a tin of fresh gingerbread. The kids inhaled the banana bread she baked. One of the things I had on my grocery order that Brad picked up today was a bunch of bananas. They need to ripen quite a bit for making banana bread and I still need to make my oatmeal cookies. Now that we are over the seasonal allergy symptoms and the tummy bug I actually feel like doing something in the kitchen for a change.

Sounds like Brad isn’t the only one enjoying the weather today. Our neighbor south and west of us is out on his pistol range getting in some target practice.

I’ve got a couple of essential oil diffusers going, one in my bedroom and one in the living room. The house gets a bit musty smelling when it’s closed up for weeks on end and nothing eliminates that like a combination of Thieves and Frankincense. Ahhhh. Smells lovely!

And there goes the beeper on the dryer. I forgot I had a load of sheets in there. So, I’m off to fold sheets and maybe take a walk before I work on my knitting. Have a blessed Monday 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.
