Fall is Finally Here

We woke up to 68° in the house and 58° outside and turned the heat on to get the chill off the house. It’s a gorgeous day, sunny with a light breeze and Brad is headed to the coffee shop for breakfast croissants. We like to do that on Saturday for a treat once in a while. It should be in the low 80’s today so we can have the house open again after it warms up a bit more.

I finished the first book in the Dragonriders of Pern, series, “Dragonflight”, and started the second book, “Dragonquest”. I had forgotten how much I liked this series. I’ll try not to zip through it too fast but it’s easy to get engrossed and lose track of time.

Our power flickered off and back on a few seconds later this morning. Of course we both had our feet up in our recliners at the time and for a second or two we wondered if we’d get stuck in the recliners for long before we remembered we have the Generac! Fifteen seconds after the power goes out the generator comes on and when the power comes back on the generator shuts off. It was only off long enough to disrupt both the TV signal and the internet connection. The TV came back on fairly quickly but it was several minutes before the modem came back online. I was in the middle of my morning crossword on Pogo at the time.

We are watching Dr. Pol reruns this morning and after we’ve eaten it’ll be time to tackle a few things around the house. I’ve got more yarn inventory to do and I need to take a few photos while I list off what’s in each bin. I’ve started a section on my One Note yarn page for each bin and it’ll be nice to have photos so I’ll know what’s in each bin just from checking my notes.

Brad just called and there is a big Fall Fest celebration going on in town and it will be a bit of a wait until he can get our breakfast croissants but he’s up for it so we’ll hopefully have brunch instead of breakfast before much longer. Since he’s delayed a bit I’m going to take the chance to hit the shower and enjoy standing under hot water. My joints are complaining and that will help me get in gear this morning.

Have a blessed Saturday and first day of a new month, ya’ll.

Happy Caturday!

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.
