Where Did My Day Go?

I was up earlier than usual, out and running errands and back home in good time. I picked up groceries for us, got a bag of diatomaceous earth for Audrey and delivered it to the farm along with the second Kindle and accessories, got my hair cut at long last, picked up packages at the post office and brought lunch home for Brad and I, got a few things done around the house that needed doing and…here it is…after 11:00 pm at night!

Seriously, it’s like I blinked and lost the entire afternoon and evening and hadn’t posted anything on my blog yet. Brad has gone to bed and will go in to the coffee shop in the morning and bring home some breakfast croissants for the two of us. We don’t have anything else to do tomorrow, just hang around the house and putter.

I did finish reading an e-book and put my reader back on the charger and I guess I must have spent more time reading today than I realized. Sometimes I get absorbed when reading and lose track of time, especially when I don’t have chores to do. This makes three e-books that I’ve read since I got the Kobo reader, granted they are fairly short novels, and I’m ready to start the fourth book in the Cat Who series when the Kobo is fully charged.

Tomorrow I really, really, really need to finish a pair of socks on the needles. It was so nice here today, up to 70° and sunny. We had the house open and I had planned to sit out on the front porch and work on the socks. There is a 50% chance of rain showers tonight and the high will be in the mid 40’s tomorrow so I kinda blew my chance to enjoy sitting on the porch in the sunshine with my knitting.

I’ll probably thaw a roast and toss it in the crockpot with some potatoes and carrots tomorrow. And I’d like to do some baking as well. I just need to leave the Kobo alone long enough to get that done!

Have a good night and a great start to your weekend in the morning, ya’ll. God bless.

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.
