And…The A/C Is Back On!

We enjoyed a couple of days of having the house open and fresh air circulating but it’s back to A/C for awhile. Not surprising. There is a bit of a breeze out there but it’s back to 90° for a bit longer.

Brad was gone most of yesterday and I kept busy puttering around the house a little more, but not overdoing it. Don’t need another migraine, thank you very much!

I did drive in to Walmart for a few things and actually did my own shopping this time. The parking lot at the Denison store was packed and I didn’t want to walk halfway across it to get to the front door so I drove to the Sherman location, parked a decent distance away and had my cart ready to check out in no time. I used the self check and it went very well.

I spent the rest of the afternoon working on my knitting and rewinding some yarn from unfinished projects that will never be finished. I cleaned out and organized the plastic bin containing my best fingering yarns and bagged up all the left-overs from other projects and put them on top of the big shelving unit. I’ve got enough partial balls of wound fingering yarn for a scrappy blanket someday and now I can find my newest and best yarns without digging for them in the bottom of the bin.

I also got my knitting needles organized and found all but one circular needle. I’m missing a 24″, size 6 ChiaoGoo needle but it’ll turn up somewhere. There will be a forgotten project somewhere or the loose needle will be at the bottom of a knitting bag or basket I haven’t searched yet. It’s nice to get organized again. It’s been over two years since I had everything in my studio stored away, neat and tidy.

We still have a few things in Brad’s room to tackle but that can wait for a day when we can open the house up again and get the dust blown out and furniture and shelves cleared and wiped down.

I got all three of our office chairs wiped down with leather cleaner as well as both of the good recliners in the living room. The old brown recliner is in the dining room, back removed, waiting to be hauled off when we find someone who can use it.

I can see it’s time to dust the living room again. The glass topped shelves in our make-shift entertainment center are showing a fine layer of dust but I’ll tackle that tomorrow and probably do at least one load of laundry. And I need to wipe down the inside of the SUV and vacuum it out as well.

I’m rested from my trip to the chiropractor and to drop things off at the farm for our daughter. I asked her if there was anything she could think of that we could get her for her birthday this month and without missing a beat she said her carpet shampooer had quit on her. That is easily remedied! After I got home and talked to Brad and he’s been online looking at what Home Depot has to offer. He’s on the phone with Audrey now discussing the different brands and finding out what she prefers.

It’s time to have a late lunch. I’ve got everything we need for a nice salad including sliced chicken breast to top it. I’ll work on my knitting today and leave any more housework for tomorrow. Have a blessed Tuesday afternoon, 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.
