It’s Here! The Rain Arrived!

We did not awaken to storms during the night but it has been overcast since we got up this morning. The sky was pretty dark around 9 am and there was some thunder. Now it’s just raining nice and slow and soaking in to the very dry ground.

I’ll work on the Alpine Blossom socks today since the light isn’t that good and in a bit I’ll start a pot of chili for tonight and bake some cornbread. Brad has a luncheon after church today and is taking food to the farm since they are all under the weather, as am I. Mine is the beginning of a sinus infection that kept me from sleeping well last night. I’ve got homepathic drops to fight it off and stay out of the M.D.’s office one more time. I’d like to stay off of antibiotics if possible.

I made half a pot of coffee and whipped up a homemade Egg McMuffin with an over easy, farm fresh egg, thin sliced turkey and a slice of cheddar on an English muffin. Not bad! I like to use my fancy ceramic mug once in a while. It was a gift from my brother’s wife. It keeps the coffee hot, especially when I use the mug warmer.

I’m enjoying the quiet and solitude this morning. No TV, just breakfast and my morning devotion. Down time is good once in a while and the sound of the rain coming down is very soothing.

The weather map as of 11:05 this morning. Have a blessed Sunday, 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.
