Good Morning, Sunshine

For the second morning in a row I am up earlier than usual, before 7:00 am this time. I’ve been making sure I get my liquid magnesium drops in water at bedtime along with melatonin and it seems to be making a difference.

Brad got up about forty-five minutes after I did. We’ve had coffee and breakfast and will head to the chiropractor later.


It’s now 2:30 pm, still sunny, 75° with a light breeze. The house is open and we are enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. I have a chicken thawing that I’ll put in the Crock Pot tomorrow. I’m in the mood for comfort food, might even bake some cornbread to go with it.

We stopped at Green Market for a few things and brought home lunch from their hot bar: Chicken Parmesan, steamed Italian veggies, mac & cheese, roasted carrots, garlic toast, apple/blueberry cobbler. I managed to eat half of what I put in my food container (I’ll eat the rest for dinner later) and had no room for dessert.

We are stocked up with Reed’s Ginger Beer in bottles (better than cans) and elderberry gummies. Also found some of the soft goat cheese that we like on wheat crackers. There are a few other errands that we need to run that can wait until tomorrow. Both of us have plenty to keep us busy here at home for the rest of the day. Brad is in his shop puttering around.

He decided to get the containers of gasoline out of the garage and store them down at his shop. The newer ‘safer’ containers don’t have the little vent tabs on top and when pressure builds up they start leaking gas from the caps. Yeah. Way to go guys. He’s going to buy some replacement caps with vents. Apparently someone figured out those things need to vent after all. At any rate, the garage won’t smell like gasoline now.

In rearranging the coned cotton yarn on the shelf in my workroom I came across a mostly full cone of solid green yarn and realized I have nothing else left that will coordinate with it, so…you guessed it…I’m knitting up more washcloths. They will work fine in either bathroom. I have enough variegated blue yarn to replace the old potholders and knit hand towels for the kitchen, in between finishing sock projects.

I’m caught up on my daily Bongino podcast and I’m taking a break to knit and watch a Midsomer Murder episode on Pluto TV, via Roku. We watched a bit of news on OANN while we had lunch. The Roku was one of the best investments we’ve made in ages. We had to replace the first one we bought since the company was phasing it out. The Roku 2 is great, but you really, really need high-speed internet to get the most out of it.

I’m caught up with housework and it’s time to goof off for awhile. Have a blessed Hump Day afternoon, 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.
