Still Feels Like Summer

It’s almost 8 pm, 85° with barely a breath of air moving outside this evening. I know our weather is unpredictable at the best of times, but this is almost the middle of May and it’s a bit warm for this time of the year. Thank goodness we upgraded our A/C two years ago.

Well, puppies kept the family up off and on last night and every time they fussed baby Gabriel wanted to get up and play with them. That is one happy little guy. Six year old Waya is getting used to their presence and in time I think she’ll do fine. They got a bit rambunctious in the other room and Waya got up to investigate and let them know to be quiet when family was watching TV. Which they did. As Brad said yesterday, Waya speaks ‘Dog’ and will communicate with them and keep them in line.

They have names now. This is Hava with Waya on the sofa.

This is Magen, passed out on Audrey’s lap.

We are looking forward to going out to see the whole family again and making sure that Waya knows she is loved and special to us.

Brad had errands to run and brought home a late lunch for the two of us, Brisket Tacos from Frank & Lola’s. I love their tacos! We prefer the flour tortillas to corn tortillas and their Roasted Pineapple Salsa is very tasty.

This is the first photo I took with my new phone when we stopped at Frank & Lola’s the first time.

Guess I’ll get back to my knitting and finish this last dishcloth while I read “Monk’s Hood” by Ellis Peters. I’m enjoying re-reading the Brother Cadfael Chronicles. It’s been about twenty years since I read the series the first time.

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.
