A Quiet Sunday

Haven’t done much today except the daily essentials like bed making, tidying up the kitchen and a couple of other things. Been battling nausea all day from the sinus drainage so I grabbed my Relief Band and it’s much better. The tricky part is making sure I get my vitamins and I need food on my stomach for that. Reed’s Ginger Beer helps with the upset tummy as well.

I’ve made a little more progress on the blue crocheted potholder but it’s slow going, even with the size G hook. So, I got to thinking. How about using a size H hook? So far so good. That’s it in the brown variegated yarn in the photo above. Much easier on my hands. I’m using a 40 stitch foundation chain, like with the other ones I’ve made, and I think I’ll need to toss the brown one in the washer when I’m finished with it. I don’t normally do that with newly crocheted potholders since they are usually more tightly crocheted, but I want this one to draw in a bit to make sure there are no spots where I could burn myself while using it.

All is well at the farm and Brad had a good morning with the grandchildren. His meeting went well and was blessedly short and he had the kids back at the farm with lunch for everyone in good time.

We had scrambled egg tacos for lunch and more chopped beef brisket for dinner. Brad has an appointment in the morning and he may bring something home for lunch. We’ll decide in the morning. I’ve got several loads of laundry to get done tomorrow and at least one bathroom to clean. Other than that I’ll continue with my crochet projects and catch up on some streaming video.

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.
