Love That Texas Weather!

It’s 3:00 pm, Tuesday, February 8th and it’s 67° outside. The heat pump is off and the front door is open, the fresh air is lovely. Brad is down at his shop enjoying a day off from his labors and I’m taking a break from house cleaning.

A week ago the temps were below freezing. We will have highs in the high 60’s up into the low 70’s into the weekend, then back to more normal weather for our area with high temps in the 50’s.

I’m getting ready to finish the washcloth I was working on when I was falling asleep in my recliner last night. Then I’ll start another one and catch up on Bongino’s latest podcast on Rumble. He’s gained over 90,000 more subscribers to his podcast on Rumble in the past few days from people who are leaving Youtube. Just goes to show. Give people a choice of a Conservative site versus a Left Wing Liberal site and quite a few will take advantage of it.

I keep expecting to hear the UPS truck coming down the drive. My Kobo Libra 2 e-reader is out for delivery. Yay! I’m going to download a copy of Lt. Col. Allen West’s book so I can continue reading it and give the hard copy back to Brad. I’m excited to see how this reader will work since they advertise a very long battery life compared to the Kindle. I figure there is so much on a Kindle in the way of Amazon related apps running in the background that it is bound to run the battery down quicker than a simple e-reader. We shall see! I foresee more reading in my future…

The living room is dusted and swept, the clutter is put away, ditto my bedroom and the kitchen. The dishwasher is running, it’s soothing, low key swishing sound can put you to sleep if you let it, and there is a load in the washer that needs a little vinegar in the first rinse so I need to take care of that before I get down to knitting and Bongino’s podcast.

I will leave you with something humorous that I snagged off of my daughter’s page on FB. Take a good look at the sign: “Vegetarian Fed Chickens”. So, now there is such a thing as Chicken milk? Interesting…

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.
