Happy Grandson

He loves it! Grandson Joshua is very pleased with his gift and wants to know when he can come out to our house to visit…and can he bring his wand.

I stopped by the farm this afternoon to drop some stuff off for Audrey and they all seem to be doing just fine. I’m happy when they’re happy! Rachel and Joshua weren’t feeling all that great a few days ago but they’re doing well now. It’s the weather…and it bothers me, too. It’s nice to have the sun shining and the snow melting and warmer weather headed our way soon.

Audrey is expecting a hay delivery this week and I meant to ask if she needs cubes and sweet feed, but I’ll be back out there in a day or two since I forgot to give her the memory card that goes with the Kindle I gave her. (Forgot. The memory card. Yeah. Good one.) I’ll have another Kindle that she can use before much longer. When I asked if she was interested she said they would be good for homeschooling. So, grandma scores again! I love to be able to hand on things that I no longer need if someone can get some use out of them.

My new e-reader will be delivered sometime tomorrow, here at the house, via UPS. I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning but “since the Covid numbers are up again we’ll do a phone consult instead” according to the nurse who called this morning. I still need to go in for lab work, but that’s not a problem and I can do that anytime.

I need to clean out the fridge tomorrow and I’ve got another quart of freshly homemade chicken broth to go in the freezer as soon as it cools off. I just strained it and I’ll pop it in the freezer before I go to bed. Brad just headed off to bed. He’s had a long day with a trip to the dermatologist to have another precancerous spot removed. This one is behind his right ear and they opted not to do sutures this time since it isn’t deep or large, just let it fill in on it’s own. I know he’s weary of being whittled on, but such is life. All those years of working outdoors have caught up with him and I’ve had a few issues of my own. All in all, we are both very fortunate in that respect. It could have been a lot worse.

I’ve almost finished the first in a batch of facecloths for Brad’s bathroom, and I found another partial cone of a neutral variegated yarn that I can use as well. These clothes are so easy and quick to knit that when one of them gets a hole in it I tell him to toss it and I’ll make some more. Some of the older, faded ones get tossed in the rag bag for his shop. We tend to use things until they wear out and by the time a knitted cloth has a hole in it it’s time to toss it anyway. They get a lot of use.

It’s coming up on 10:00 pm and I am going to get ready for bed before the news comes on and try not to fall asleep in the recliner. Again. The bed is so much more comfortable!

Sleep well and have a blessed night and a wonderful Tuesday 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.
