It’s A Lovely Monday!

Our Lone Pine Tree, a Loblolly Pine from East Texas

It’s another gorgeous day in our little corner of Texas. Sunny, cloudless sky, about 50° and climbing. I’m hoping to be able to open the house later and chase the dust bunnies out from under the furniture. I woke up sans allergy symptoms and ready to take on the day. Brad is off to his appointment and has errands to run afterwards. Nice day to be out and about.

On the subject of dust bunnies: I commented to Brad yesterday that our dust bunnies are blue. Seriously. Sort of a slate blue/gray. He responded, “So I’m not losing my mind? They really are blue, right? We have cop dust bunnies.” Yup. Weird. But true. I’ll try to capture one later and get a photo.

I’ve got Louder With Crowder on streaming video. These guys are a hoot and a half. They’re talking about Russia and Ukraine and are very entertaining in the process. They’re doing a pretty good job of touching on the history of the region going back to WWII, punctuated with humor and video clips. Even with the humor, it’s difficult to look past the threat of the US having troops on the ground in Ukraine and getting involved in a war with Russia. And, of course, China will have something to say about the whole thing.

I want the guy with the mean tweets back. Seriously. I miss that guy. He bulldozed straight ahead, got things done and turned this country around, all the while being attacked for insisting that America is a great country. Seriously, how can anyone say the United States of America is not the greatest country on this planet? Well, it was before the PINO (President In Name Only) was installed in the White House. Sigh. Enough of that. On to Bongino’s podcast.

So. Back to my crocheted potholder while I watch Dan take on the Left. I’m hoping to finish the brown one today and give it a wash to see how much it will draw in. I like to take measurements before and after washing and make notes. Which reminds me…I need a page in my One Note for the crocheted potholders and my experiments with different sizes of hooks and gauge in cotton yarn.

On a side note: I love, love, love the ‘block call’ feature on our AT&T landline phone!!! We keep getting these phone calls where no one answers after you say, “Hello” and then a clicking sound as the call is disconnected from the other end. That’s when I hit the block button. Fargin bastage ice holes. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest their noses.

Dan’s talking about the so called January 6 ‘insurrection’. You watch the montage of video/audio clips of all these online personalities, and politicians, referring to the ‘deadly insurrection’, over and over and over. Gee. It’s almost like they are reading the same narrative.

It’s all BS and nonsense of course, like the so-called pandemic. There is no emergency. There is no pandemic. There is a plandemic! But it’s all falling apart, crumbling before their very eyes, and the Left is going batcrap crazy about it. It’s quite entertaining. Really. It’s so cool to realize I’m one of the people in this country who can see through the BS and nonsense and recognize the truth.

These fools really believe the citizens of this country are THAT stupid. Well, some of them are. And some of them are afraid and have allowed their fear to lead them into decisions they, and their children, will regret for the rest of their lives. God help them.,c_limit,f_jpg,h_630,q_90,w_630/v1601316911/production/designs/14484053_0.jpg

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.
