Success!

I picked Joshua up at 10 am and we headed to town, talked to the young man at Game Stop and after checking with Audrey it was decided that they just needed a new game console.

I was able to replace the Playstation 4 console at the farm with a Playstation 4 Pro, a refurbished model for less money, as well as two new games, Spiderman and Ark for the kids. The old console was on it’s way out and we can take it back to Game Stop and swap it for store credit toward more games or whatever they need. Now Audrey can download the upgrade to Minecraft. She couldn’t connect to the internet with the old console anymore and now she will be good to go again and have a reliable setup for gaming as well as home-school resource.

Joshua and I had a short wait until the store opened at 11 am so we stopped at CJ’s for second breakfast! He had a pumpkin muffin and a strawberry smoothie and I had a breakfast cookie and an Americano and we went back to Game Stop. From there we went into Denison to a game store that I found online, Garner’s Games. They don’t have video games, they have table top games. And. Models. Yay! Joshua’s dad likes models and this is something the two of them can do together as soon as they have a dedicated space for that away from prying 2 year old fingers.

My brother and I loved models when we were kids in the 1960’s. My favorite was a “Silly Surfer, Hot Dogger Hangin Ten” from 1964 and a “Silly Surfer Woodie on Safari”. I can’t believe they are available on Ebay!

I went by Arby’s to pick up a chicken sandwich for Audrey and Joshua was hungry again so I got him the Reuben, curly fries and large Dr. Pepper for both of them. Audrey was thrilled with our morning accomplishments. Brad was in town when I got home a little while ago and I got him on the phone. He’s taking care switching another account from our old bank to the new one, dropping the old brown recliner off at The Refuge in town, picking up the mail at the Post Office and about now he should be headed to Home Depot to get Audrey’s new carpet shampooer that came in late yesterday.

Our daughter is no doubt having a splendid first day of Autumn. It is a gorgeous day. At first there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, but I see some big fluffy clouds back to the north now. It’s still hot but will be cooling off in a few days.

It’s nice to get that recliner out of the dining room and get it to folks who can use it. Now all we need to do is take them the stationary bicycle that’s been in the garage for several months.

I was thoroughly ‘dogged’ by Waya and Magen at the farm and had to get out of the clothes I was wearing since they were covered in dog hair, so I tossed them in the washer and added a few more things for a good sized load. I’m done for the day, allergies are kicking in big time, but I can put my feet up in the recliner and work on my knitting, knowing our daughter and the kids are really happy right now. Just wait til David gets home and finds out what we accomplished!

It’s not often I have two posts in one day, but this was too good to wait until tomorrow! Have a blessed day, 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.
