Ready To Weave

I wound the weft off of the larger shuttle and onto the smaller one and I’m ready to work on this band now. It’s a good size loom to use while sitting in the recliner. I woke up all congested and achy this morning but began feeling better as the day wore on, just a little tired this evening. It’s partly allergies and partly the weather. I’m just grateful it’s nothing serious, just a bit annoying.

Brad drove in to get pizza for dinner. He brought home breakfast croissants from the coffee shop for breakfast yesterday as well as a couple of their espresso brownies. He spoils me rotten!

I can’t believe we are this far into another month, but here we are! October 13th. I’ll be 68 on Sunday. That doesn’t seem possible. The weather is doing it’s usual bi-polar nonsense for Autumn in Texas. Today was really nice and we enjoyed having the house open and a nice breeze blowing through the open windows. Tomorrow it’s going to be back in the 90’s and Saturday night through Sunday we are supposed to get some soaking rain. I’ll believe it when I see it.

I’m enjoying another book in the “Dragonriders of Pern” series, “Dragonseye”. It takes place 250 years after the first colonists arrived on Pern and they’ve lost most of the technology that their ancestors brought with them, including computers and solar power. It’s a good read. I was right in the middle of an interesting chapter when my Roku let me know it needed to be recharged. I thought to check my phone and it was down to 30% so I put on the charger as well. I checked both of my Relief Bands. They are recharging, too. The charging station is full!

My desk/sewing table should arrive next Wednesday and I have a follow up appointment with one of my doctors on Tuesday. Nothing else is going on except the foundation repair guy coming some time this weekend. It’s about time for the A/C and heating guys to give our heat pump system a once over for winter. Terminex sent a guy out to check the termite bait stations and all is well with them. They’ll have someone come out once more this year to spray around the house and we’ll be set until next spring.

Brad’s been enjoying being outdoors with the nicer weather and was down at his shop earlier on the pistol range calibrating some ammo he loaded. With the windows open during the day I’m able to hear both neighbors going about their chores, tractors running, donkey’s braying and rooster crowing. It’s kind of nice, really. Better than all the hustle and bustle of town life, that’s for sure.

It’s almost 10 pm and time for me to hit the shower and maybe play solitaire before heading to bed. Have a blessed night, 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.
