Day Trip

Brad had business in neighboring Fannin County today and I went along for company. We were gone about four hours and stopped in Sherman for a bite of lunch before heading home. We had intended to stop and vote but I was tired and needed out of the car so we decided to let voting wait til Monday. The wind was cold and, even with my wool sweater, it wasn’t fun being outdoors. It warmed up after we got home and the wind finally died down.

I haven’t taken a photo of the finished socks yet, but I’ll do that tomorrow after they are washed and on the blockers. I have another pair of socks that need the ribbing knitted and I’ll grab those next.

I spent some time fiddling around with my new phone, arranging apps on my homepage and hiding the ones I don’t need. I discovered I can make folders and lump similar things together to take up less room. Amazingly enough, our phones actually work in the house. Brad called Audrey from his phone and the call went through. I don’t know that I would trust it to maintain a connection though. We will see. And we have no intention of dropping out landline. We need something that works in a power outage and don’t need to rely on something that needs charging.

Brad is out of the shower and we’re going to look for something to watch on TV before bedtime. All I did was sit in the SUV while Brad did the driving. I can’t believe I’m so tired! I should have gotten out and stretched my legs instead of sitting there the entire time. It won’t be long and we’ll both be headed to bed. He needs to pick up a package at the post office in the morning and I suggested bringing home breakfast croissants from the coffee shop on his way back.

I don’t see anything to watch on TV so I’ll probably read for a bit. Have a blessed Friday night, 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.
