Back to Spring Weather

We’ve had a front come through our area in NE Texas and it’s now in the 60’s after being in the 90’s for over a week. Tonight it will be in the mid 50’s. Now that’s more like it!

Brad made a run to town for take away from Frank & Lola’s Bohemian Tacos. Their smoked brisket tacos on flour tortillas are the best.

I’m still knitting and watching Foyle’s War episodes during the day and reading “St. Peter’s Fair” in the evenings. Seems I’ve gotten into a bit of a routine. I can knit the hand towel pattern and read at the same time so it’s going along nicely.

Since it’s cooled off considerably we will plan on a trip to the farm tomorrow to see how everyone is doing, dote on Waya and play with Hava and Magen. I have some clean bottles to take to Audrey and some turkey cold cuts as well. Albertson’s made a substitution on our last order and we prefer the Honey Smoked Turkey instead of the Roasted Turkey. The kids will inhale what we don’t eat.

I finally decided to replace our thirteen year old GE clothes dryer that I absolutely hate. Brad got online and found the comparable Maytag dryer to go with our washer. Home Depot makes it easy to shop online and I had already looked at the same dryer in their Sherman store.

The GE washer we bought with the dryer was a lemon and Sear’s let us pick out whatever we wanted as a replacement and I wanted a Maytag. The dryer still worked and I got tired of waiting for it to die a natural death. I don’t trust the thermostat on it now and I’m using the lowest of the low settings to make sure our clothes aren’t shrunken beyond recognition. The Maytag dryer will be delivered and installed next week and they’ll haul off the old dryer for a reasonable fee. The Maytag washer will be the last remaining Sear’s appliance in the house. Everything else has come from Home Depot over the past couple of years.

It’s almost 9:00 pm and after I finish my cup of tea I’m headed off to enjoy a hot shower and get ready for bed. Have a blessed Saturday 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.
