It’s Monday…

Slept like the dead last night, struggled to get moving this morning. Brad made coffee and then headed to the farm to pick up the grandsons for a visit. He returned with smoothies and breakfast cookies for the two of them and breakfast croissants for the two of us. He is now making a second pot of coffee. Well, it was only a half a pot the first time, so another half a pot is now brewing.

Yesterday morning it was 75° when I got up and it didn’t reach 100°. It was a nice day. This morning it was 70° when I went out to open the garage before Brad left to get the boys. It’s nice outside! Joshua and Jacob should enjoy helping Brad in the shop prepping brass cases for reloading. They love taking turns working the reloading press to de-prime the cases for him. Between them the boys can go through a couple of hundred cases in no time.

I may venture out on the porch with my knitting in a little while. It didn’t seem horribly humid when I stuck my head out an hour and a half ago. I’ve got a load or two of laundry to do and I’m enjoying some plain knitting on the lap throw while reading the next Brother Cadfael book, “The Rose Rent”.

The boys are enjoying their breakfast with their grandad and explaining Minecraft Dungeons to him. Apparently they have a new Minecraft game that they can play with their Playstation 4.

Joshua found Jacob’s favorite movie in our DVD collection. I guess we’ll have to make time for “Over the Hedge” later. I love that crazy movie. Especially when Hammy drinks the energy drink…

The boys are keeping me entertained while I write this. They have a pretty high entertainment value after all. When they are away from their sisters they are quite chatty! In fact, it’s difficult to shut them up, lol. They are sweet boys and very attentive to their grandparents. Brad finally shooed them outdoors while it’s still cool enough to enjoy being outside. I’ve finally finished my breakfast and it’s time to work on my knitting.

Have a blessed Monday, 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.
