Tomorrow is Another Day!

I was going to run errands today, but the best laid plans and all that. Again. Anyway, Brad picked up the mail and brought us lunch, and dinner for tomorrow, so what I need to do will wait until tomorrow after the trip to the chiropractor. Haven’t made my potato soup yet because I forgot to ask him to buy some green onions. No big deal.

It’s been warm and humid enough to drown frogs outside today, but no rain unless it sprinkled and I didn’t notice at the time. There have been storms and showers all around us but nothing here today. It’s that time of year. You can be looking at a replay of radar on the weather page and watch the green patches of rain just appear out of nowhere and grow together for a larger area of rain. Crazy!

My jar of Field of Greens from Brickhouse was at the post office and I’ll have some in the morning to start my day. I had a voicemail message a little while ago and almost missed it. My phone was charging and didn’t ring but I happened to notice the screen light up and since it was 99% charged I unplugged it and took a look.

It was the daughter of the lady I buy the Everything Balm from in Oklahoma. The mail service they use for shipping USPS didn’t want to let them ship to my PO box and after I explained that we live in a rural area and don’t have a mail box at the road she said she would just ship it straight USPS. It costs a dollar and a few cents more but I told her that doesn’t matter to me, just add it to the shipping.

I told her I started out buying the balm at her mom’s booth at the DFW Fiberfest several years ago and she said that she was going this year for the first time. I’ll try to make it this fall and meet her. Her mom is great and I love their products. Maybe life will be back to normal by then. Although, the local clinic where we see our doctor and a couple of specialists has dropped their mask nonsense so I expect that the Irving convention center should be OK.

I’ve been watching North Woods Law most of the day and reading. The weather is playing havoc with my joints so I just took a day off. A hot shower helped a lot and the Cryofreeze that we keep on hand really helps aching joints. I’ve been rubbing it on Brad’s shoulders and upper back after he gets out of the shower. The CBD oil in the Cryofreeze really helps with inflammation. I’ll use it on my shoulders again before I head off to bed.

Since I’ve been watching Dan Bongino’s podcast the last couple of years I’ve tried several of the products he advertises and I’ve never been disappointed. The first thing I bought was the Cryofreeze, next came the Relief Band, then Express VPN and now I’m trying the Field of Greens. My immune system needs all the help it can get! One of these days I’ll try the Omaha Steaks that he loves so much. There isn’t a lot of room in our freezer but I could share with Audrey and let her give it a try. Sooner or later we’ll have a deep freeze out in the garage and we’ll have a calf butchered and stock up, but that is in the future. We need to get our Generac installed first. I refuse to invest in a freezer, stock it, and then worry about a power outage. Nope! Not happening!

It’s getting very green lately and it won’t be long before we need to call the guys to come out and mow. I expect the price will have gone up due to the cost of fuel, but that won’t be a problem. Their prices are very reasonable, they are very good at what they do, we appreciate the way they clean up before they leave and we don’t have grass clippings on the porch or in the garage when they are through. And they edge ALL of the trees in the yard, around the house and Brad’s shop. That is huge for us because there is no way either of us can deal with a weed wacker anymore. Or a riding mower for that matter. We’ve been paying $150 every two weeks during mowing season to have three acres mowed and the edging done. Well worth it. And they trim trees as well, as long as it’s nowhere near the power lines.

Time to get some stuff put away and get the kitchen tidied up for in the morning. I’ll read for a bit and then I will become one with my Tempur Pedic mattress. Once I hit the bed, I’m out for the night and quite often I wake up in the same position I was in when I dropped off to sleep. Same with Brad. There isn’t much to do in the mornings when it comes to making beds!

Have a blessed Tuesday 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.
