I’m Done Now. Really.

So, Brad asked me earlier if I wanted to get rid of that brown recliner and I thought about it, realized I am not using it. It’s not that comfortable for me because the seat is not firm enough. The chair is now out of the studio and I’ve moved things around yet again!

I really, really want to repaint this room but before I do that the flooring is due to be replaced and new baseboards put down. There is also a stain on the ceiling in one corner due to a past leak when the A/C drip pan in the attic overflowed. We have a larger drip pan now and a cutoff in case it gets too full again. Slowly but surely we are making lasting improvements so we don’t run into the same problems again.

The Herald floor loom is back where it belongs, ditto the floor inkle loom beside it. The floor inkle loom is named Gerald, Herald’s little buddy.

I’ve got lots more floor space now and can easily pull that table out to sit at my yarn winding station. I’ve gotten everything off the floor that I possibly could and put several things away in the hall closet, where they belong. Everything is ready for the new desk to be delivered when it arrives and all we need to do is put a couple of shelves up on the wall over the new desk.

It’s much easier for me to clean and will be even more so when the plastic table and shelves are replaced. I can reach under the wire shelving with my Swiffer duster and wet mop now. The few things that will need to be moved in order to clean under and behind them are easily pulled out of the way.

As I was puttering around in the studio and taking things out that don’t really belong the knuckle on my left thumb began to ache and now is so stiff I can barely bend it. I told Brad that I think there is a weather change coming and mentioned my thumb bothering me. He looked at the forecast and guess what? I was right! We have a cold front on the way! Fall is actually going to arrive soon. Well, cooler weather for a bit at least. No rain, just cooler weather. I’ll take it!

It’s 90° now and not quite 5 pm. By 8 am in the morning it will be 66° and will only reach about 82° tomorrow afternoon. I’ve been waiting for this for so long. All the cleaning I’ve been doing, getting ready to be able to turn off the A/C and open the windows and doors in the house. And I’ve just remembered that I need to dust the blades on all four of the ceiling fans. No problem. Easily done. I’ve got a telescoping duster just for that chore.

Brad is down at his shop puttering around and getting ready to head to his range. I’m trying to decide what to do for dinner later and I’m about out of ideas. I’ve let the fridge get a little bare the past several days and I need to make a grocery list and get online and put in an order to pick up on Monday morning.

It just occurred to me that I have what I need for scrambled eggs and English muffins for dinner tonight and that is sounding better by the minute. I’ve got some oranges and I could put several of them through the juicer for fresh orange juice.

Brad will have breakfast with the grand-kids in the morning on the way to church and bring us lunch afterwards. Depending on what we decide on for take-away tomorrow we can have left overs for dinner so that’s meals taken care of until I can pick up groceries Monday. I’ll have some yogurt and toast for breakfast in the morning, maybe even brew myself a mug of coffee to go with it.

I have a load of laundry that I forgot about and need to toss it in the dryer then I may as well go ahead and have my shower and do some knitting until Brad gets back from the range and needs his shower. Have a wonderful Saturday evening, ya’ll. God bless.

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.
