Interesting Afternoon

I made the trip to Lewisville today to see my naturopath, Dr. Shawn, at The Whole Body Healing Center on N. Mill St. My route there took me down SH 289 to SH 380 to the Dallas North Tollway to the Sam Rayburn Tollway and Business 121 into Lewisville.

I was tooling along nicely on the DNT when I saw a whole lotta red tail lights up ahead. Seems there had been a collision that shut everything down to one lane. Finally made it through and in less than two miles there was another shutdown due to, you guessed it, a collision. I left early. I arrived 10 minutes late.

I had a good visit with Dr. Shawn Sieracki and he sent me home with several homeopathic treatments for various ailments, nothing serious, just annoying. On the way home I decided to take Sam Rayburn Tollway to SH 75 North into Sherman and on home to Denison.

I lost track of the number of people on 75 who wanted to drive 90 mph. I managed to get out of their way and get home in one piece. I’m glad I picked up the packages at the Post Office in Denison before I left for Lewisville because by the time I was turning off on FM 120 to head home from Denison I was exhausted.

It’s 100°. North Texas drivers are lunatics. Dallas North Tollway is a nightmare. I’m thankful to be home.

Our replacement coffee maker arrived, undamaged, and is assembled and ready for the parts to have a nice bath in hot, soapy water. The shipment from Melaleuca has me re-stocked with some laundry supplies and essential oils. Brad unboxed both of those for me and I still have a couple of other things to open including a shipment from Simply Soap and more bottles of Temple Cleanse to keep on hand when I need a dietary detox.

Brad made me a Margarita and I’m in my recliner, feet up, and ready to work on my knitting. The border of the shawl is looking fabulous and I can already tell I’m going to love wearing it.

I love both the color and the texture of the border for this shawl and my mind is already coming up with more combinations for a future version out of more hand-spun.

Hope you all have a blessed RED Friday, ya’ll. Remember Everyone Deployed until they all come home.

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.
