May is Here!

April has passed and here we are beginning the month of May. Everything is very green and lush after all the rain we’ve been having. Today was a quiet day here in our little corner of Texas.

I’ve started another series of books, this time by Ellis Peters, The Brother Cadfael Chronicles. First up is “A Morbid Taste for Bones”. In May 1137 a group of Benedictine monks travels from Shrewbury Abbey in western England into Wales in search of the relics of St. Winifred. The Welsh are not amused and Prior Robert has already rubbed everyone the wrong way at the outset.

There are twenty-one books in the series and several were made into a TV series, Mystery!: Cadfael back in the 1990’s.

I seem to winning the battle over allergy symptoms but the antihistamines are taking a toll and leaving me drowsy. I dozed off in my recliner this afternoon and slept for several hours. Now it’s 9:00 pm and I’ve not accomplished much at all except a little reading.

Tomorrow will be better! Have a blessed Sunday 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.
