Here We Go Again!

It’s the beginning of the second week of March and the weather has been warm and sunny. So, of course we have a chance of snow later in the week! I really thought we were past that, and it might miss us yet. You just never know with Texas weather.

In any case, there isn’t anything going on here to speak of. Brad’s doing great, I’m almost over the sinus infection without having to end up in the doctor’s office. I’m making my way through the Cat Who series and just started book number twenty-eight, The Cat Who Dropped A Bombshell. Next up, after I finish this series, I want to get back to Lt. Col. West’s book on Texas now that I have it on my Kobo reader.

I’ve finished all but one partial cone of cotton yarn, five down and one to go. There are now a total of twenty-one new washcloths in the house and I have enough on this last cone for four more. I’m several rows into the decreases on the first one off this cone and will have it finished before I head to bed. It’s nice to be making progress on using up some of this cotton yarn so that all I have left is full cones.

We’ve both showered and are winding down and getting ready for a good night’s sleep. I voted for C.J.’s breakfast croissants for in the morning. And I need to make a grocery list and put in an order. I’ve been doing my best to clean out the fridge before stocking up again.

With the cost of gasoline lately we’ve mostly been using my Ford Escape to run errands, with Brad using the pickup each Sunday to take the grandchildren to church with him. The local news reported tonight that we will likely reach $4.50 a gallon before this craziness ends. Something has to give before long. It’s a good thing Brad is retired and doesn’t have to drive back and forth to work every day.

The news is depressing and just ticks me off to watch it. We’re praying for the people of Ukraine as well as for our own economy. The Resident in the White House has a lot to answer for, one way or another…not that I think anyone will actually be brought to justice over this crap…but God will have something to say about it in the end.

I’m going to get back to this washcloth and get it finished, maybe watch today’s Bongino podcast while I work on my knitting, and then head to bed. Have a blessed 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.
