And Here We Go…Again!

Our 3-Day forecast as of this morning. Sigh. Looks like the chiropractor appointments and Brad’s dental appointment in the morning will be rescheduled. We’ll wait until the morning to see what it’s like outside. Quite often this stuff misses us and hits SE Oklahoma instead of NE Texas. It’s not unusual for really bad weather to dump on the DFW area and miss us here near Red River. These storms tend to flow from the SW to the NE and depending on the angle, they can miss us entirely. We’ve even seen the system split and go around us while everyone north AND south of us gets freezing rain and a buildup of ice on the roads.

I’m wearing my new Exploding TARDIS socks today and my feet are toasty and warm! We picked up a grocery order and stopped for a few things from the Deli. I’m catching up on laundry today so I don’t have to worry with that tomorrow. I’m half-way through another washcloth and gaining ground on the ribbing of the Solis Malabrigo socks.

I’ve been reading certain passages aloud to Brad from the Cat Who book, “The Cat Who Knew A Cardinal”, and he’s enjoying the humor. He actually sounded like he might be interested and I pointed out that I have the complete set of books in paperback on the top shelf in the built-ins in the dining room. He’s in the middle of reading Huckleberry Finn right now.

I had a discount coupon in my email from Kobo so I went looking to see what they had that might interest me. Lo and behold! The book I wanted by Allen West is back in their listing. With the discount I paid less than $6.00 for the e-book! Yay!

The dryer is beeping at me and I have laundry to put on hangers and vinegar to add to the first rinse on the next load. The dishwasher is swishing away and I’m having an increasing need to run to the bathroom! All that water…

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.
