It’s Monday…

Been UA (Unauthorized Absence) for a few days. Yeah, the military doesn’t use AWOL anymore. So. I’m back. And, no. I’m not in the military, but my dad was, as were most of my cousins, several uncles, my father-in-law and my daughter, so. There you have it. I tend to use military acronyms for everyday things and stuff.

Mostly been feeling kinda blah, probably the weather. It’s HOT way too early for me, even for Texas. Got up into the 90’s yesterday. It’s 1:15 pm and 88° now. And humid. Ugh. Thank you, Lord, for A/C that works!

The first best thing for the blahs is a cup, or two, of coffee. The second best thing is a hot shower! There’s not much that a hot shower won’t improve. Next up is therapy knitting. Knitting always makes me happy. And spinning. Can’t feel down or blah when sitting at my spinning wheel.

Brad is off to Ladonia for the afternoon and I just talked myself out of going to town. I have a package at the post office but it will be there tomorrow. There’s literally nothing I need to do outside the house today that can’t wait a day or two.

Wednesday we head to Savoy to meet Audrey and the kids and let them pick out a pair of GSD puppies. She wants two females this time around. I think it would be great if she had them bred when they’re old enough and the kids can enjoy newborn pups. There’s just nothing like raising puppies!

Thursday we get to visit with our son-in-law’s parents. They live in South Carolina and were back for their grand-daughters graduation from college in Austin. We like Bill and Nancy a lot and wished they lived closer. We all get along so well. They are our kind of people. Last time they visited we enjoyed a meal out at Culver’s and they suggested we do that again. Works for me! I like their chicken fingers, their fish, and their burgers.

I have four more dishcloths to knit and I’ll be finished with the denim blue yarn that’s been in my stash for longer than I can remember.

I have a nice arrangement in the living room for my knitting space. I’ve got a great rocker/recliner and room under the table next to the chair for a basket with project bags and yarn within easy reach. I keep my Kobo e-reader in the basket as well.

All I have to do is reach down beside the chair and there is everything I need in the basket. So, I’m ready to start another dishcloth and read some Cadfael.

Have a blessed Monday afternoon and evening, 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.
