Good News

Zev, aka Doofus Dog, is improving! We’ve been praying for him pretty hard for the past couple of days and Audrey called to let us know he’s doing better. Huge sigh of relief! We are all so attached to that lovable guy. And he loves his Grandma! His sister, Waya, is more attached to Brad. Zev can hardly wait to get to me when we show up at the farm. He’s still thin but he’s eating now and perking up. Thank you, God!

We are planning a trip to the farm this weekend to lavish some attention on Zev and Waya, both. I’d love to go tomorrow but the weather is going to go schizophrenic again with freezing temps and precip. Great. Just what we need. Of course, it won’t last because the ground isn’t cold enough for snow or freezing rain to stick, the temps will go right back up after the front goes through, and the sun will be out again. In any case, we still need moisture, of any kind, at this point. It’s very dry in NE Texas and there have been a number of grass fires, and house fires as well.

I goofed this morning and took all of my morning vitamins and the other supplements together without having enough on my stomach. It’s almost 3:30 pm and I’m still paying for it. Brad made a run in to Albertson’s for a few things and brought lunch from the deli. That helped a lot, getting something substantial on my stomach. I also charged my Relief Band and put it on. Ahhh. Much better!

I usually take my AM Melaleuca packet with breakfast and the PM packet with, or right after, our evening meal. What I need to do is set aside the extra supplements, Vit C, D3, Zinc and Co Q-10, to take with lunch. Easy solution! Each of the Melaleuca packets has a large fish oil capsule, which I need, but it can do a number on my tummy. Add to that the Co Q-10 and whammo! Upset tum.

I’m back to Lt. Col. Allen West’s book after giving up on the first book of short stories by Lillian Jackson Braun. I expected something more like her Cat Who book series, but it ain’t the same, folks! Oh, well. Win some, lose some.

I highly recommend West’s book to anyone trying to make sense out of the political demographics in our country today. He makes a lot of sense and puts the whole subject in perspective…in fairly short order! I like his style of writing and I’m really enjoying this book. I’ve handed the hardback copy back to Brad and I’m reading my e-book version on the Kobo reader. (Btw, a Kobo reader holds a charge much longer than either of my Kindle readers ever did.)

Time to get back to my knitting, and my reading. I’m almost ready to start the decreases on my last green dishcloth and I’m into the third chapter of my book. Have a blessed Thursday afternoon and a peaceful 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.
