Stuck in Neutral

My get up and go…got up and left. Wow. It must be the weather. No energy, joint aches, no appetite. I slept in the recliner for hours this afternoon. That is not like me. A short nap once in a blue moon, that’s usually it. If I’m feeling really bad, coming down sick with something, I just go to bed.

I don’t even want to knit or crochet. Now it’s coming up to 11 pm and I slept too long this afternoon and don’t want to go to bed. So, I’m re-watching some Bongino podcasts and was playing a card game online when I realized I hadn’t done any blogging today or wrapped grandson Joshua’s birthday gift. The gift is now wrapped and I’ll make this a short post.

Good news is that the snow is mostly gone and the roads are clear here in Grayson County. Lamar County to the east of us is another thing! They still have people without power in the Bonham area. Lamar county got a lot of ice, which missed us.

The Kobo e-reader that I ordered should be here on Tuesday and I already have several books in my wish list on their website. I’ve not been reading as much as I used to and I’m looking forward to settling into the recliner with a cup of hot tea and something good to read on my new e-reader very soon.

I found Lillian Jackson Braun’s “Cat Who” series on as well as the Mitch Rapp novels and several other authors like Bongino and Levin. I also found Lt. Col. Allen West’s book, “Hold Texas, Hold the Nation” so I can give the hardback book back to Brad and read it on my Kobo reader. At some point I will start deleting books off of my Kindle as I replace them on the Kobo. It’s easy to get carried away and buy too many books at one time, kind of like ordering yarn, so I will order a book and read it before ordering another one.

Time for me to tidy up the living room and head off to the shower. Sleep well and have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow, 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.
