Getting Rid of Clutter

I’ve cleared away a LOT of clutter off of the table and shelves. Very soon all this plastic stuff will be gone and I’ll have a nice desk with a couple of shelves mounted on the wall above the desk. I need to go through that plastic storage unit to the left. I could easily put the contents of those drawers in some containers that can be stored in a hall closet. I still need to move the stuff that’s sitting under that table and make room for it in the closet as well. The new desk has a shelf on the bottom that will hold those pretty storage boxes.

I’ve also redone my winding station on the other plastic table, hoping to replace that table as well some day soon. I decided the swift and yarn winder would work better on the back side of the table, giving me room for other things when I don’t need to wind yarn. All I have to do is pull the table out so I can get behind it, sit on the weaving bench that I’m storing under the table, wind my yarn, and then slide the table back against the wire shelving. I gave it a test run earlier and wound off a skein of yarn that I ordered from Jo Dee last week. It’s perfect.

I’ll cast on for another pair of socks after we finish our dinner. We’re having chicken pot pies from CJ’s this evening. Brad brought home lunch from there and a couple of pot pies to reheat for dinner.

Today was a very good day. I’ve felt better than I have in many months. Apparently that cleansing prep I went through was good for me and I’m being careful about what I eat and how much. I think I’ve had some intestinal congestion going on for way too long, feeling bloated and too full after eating anything. Things are looking up on the health front, definitely! And no headache today! Yay!

We’re watching “To Catch A Smuggler: Rome” at the moment. Parts of this episode are looking familiar. My word. There are some really odd people traveling around from country to country. And they have some very entertaining stories to account for their shenanigans!

It’s time for us to have our dinner and watch some more of the smuggler show. Have a blessed night, ya’ll.

RED Friday: Remember Everyone Deployed!

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.
