Prepping For Wednesday

The plastic shelves are in the dining room waiting for a new home. The portable table is cleared, folded up, and waiting for Brad to take it to the shop for a shooting bench. The only thing I need to do is move the stuff sitting near the window out of the way so the guys delivering my new desk tomorrow will have room to work. Some day we’ll have new flooring and the room will be repainted, but we need cooler weather for that.

Everything that was on the other plastic table is on the floor behind this table or stashed away in drawers and hall closet. I went into the studio to work on inventorying yarn yesterday and this was the result. Now Brad can take the other table with him to the range and give it a test run as a shooting bench. It should be heavy enough to stay put and not wobble when he uses it. We shall see. If Audrey can’t use the plastic shelves they will go to Goodwill.

We ended up turning the A/C back on about 1 pm yesterday when it reached 78° inside and the breeze began to die. But it was nice to be able to air the house out and enjoy the fresh air for a while. The day will be here, soon, when we can open the house in the morning and leave it open all day. My favorite time of the year! I’m glad we live far enough north in Northeast Texas that we don’t have to worry about hurricane damage and we’ve only had one tornado come within ten miles of us in over 47 years. We are blessed to live where we do and wouldn’t live anywhere else.

Brad had gone into town to yesterday to pick up the mail and bring us lunch and my order from Jo Dee had arrived! Woo Hoo! It’s all inventoried, re-bagged, and stored in the plastic bin with my other Fishknits Yarn.

I’ve got plenty to do to keep me busy for days to come just cataloguing my yarn stash, let alone my fiber stash. Have a blessed Tuesday, 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.
