Sunday Afternoon at Home

It’s 55° and the sun has melted most of the snow, except along the north side of the house where it’s shady. So glad we finally got some moisture, even if it was the frozen kind! We are still in a drought and need rain on the pastures if we are going to have anything to fertilize in the way of a hay crop at the farm.

The kids stayed at home with their parents today and Brad took them lunch and brought take out for us as well. He gave Joshua’s gift to Audrey and I imagine he will open it tomorrow on his eleventh birthday. Audrey and David both know what’s in the package, as does a family friend from Brad’s church. Everyone agrees that I am officially the Best Grandmother Ever.

And, this is why…

Yup! An official Harry Potter wand in an Olivander’s box, for a boy on his eleventh birthday. Just doesn’t get any better than that. I wrapped it in plain brown paper, tied up with cotton string, to look like a parcel that Harry would carry away from Olivander’s.

So, now that my job is done as Best Grandmother Ever, I am going to get back to some knitting now that my joints have stopped complaining. Brad needs some new face clothes for his bathroom and I’ve got plenty of yarn left that I used for the brown crocheted potholder. I can probably get at least three face clothes out of the rest of the yarn.

At the moment, I’m going to finish an afternoon cup of coffee and read another chapter in this book…and look forward to my Kobo e-reader arriving in a couple of days. I spent some time earlier and deleted all the apps and stuff I didn’t need off of my first Kindle Fire and reset it to the factory settings. I removed the memory card and it is ready for someone else to set up and use if they choose. It’s been taken off my Amazon account and I have no use for it.

Have a blessed Sunday evening, and a great beginning to your week in the morning, 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.
