Happy Texas Independence Day, Ya’ll

It’s a gorgeous, sunny morning in NE Texas. The forecast was for the low 40’s…we woke up to 35°…had a hunch that it would be best to put the heat pump on emergency before going to bed. Turns out we were right!

I didn’t sleep well last night, gave up about 3 am and went back to the living room and my recliner and dozed until Brad got up to make coffee. He’s off to the dentist and chiropractor later on. I’ll stay home today and work on my knitting. He’ll to stop at Frank & Lola’s for take-away for our lunch on his way home.

I finished another two dishcloths and a Cat Who book yesterday, started another dishcloth…and another Cat Who book! I should probably download a Mitch Rapp novel or two for something different to read. I still have Lt. Col. West’s book to finish. Damned shame he didn’t win the Rep Primary yesterday. We had high hopes for him unseating Abbott. Now we get to watch Abbott and that idiot O’Rourke go at it until the General Election in November. Ain’t that just peachy?

I’ve got one of my favorite Midsomer Murder’s streaming on Pluto TV, The Electric Vendetta, with a family feud, unfaithful spouses, burglars, murders and UFO nutters. (That’s You Fo on the other side of the pond. They don’t sound out the letters U, F, O like we do. They are odd folk.)

I’m going to finish this cone of cotton yarn and manage another dishcloth out of it, maybe even another partial that I can finish off with the green like the last time. Eventually, when I’ve made my way through all the partial cones, I’ll warp the loom for some woven table runners. It’s easy enough to order what I need online these days that I really don’t need a huge stash of coned cotton yarn.

Have a blessed day, ya’ll! And don’t forget…it’s Ash Wednesday…and Hump Day, too!

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.
