Yesterday evening Brad announced that we had a 100% chance of rain starting sometime during the night and by golly! We have rain. No storms as yet but there is a chance later. Looks like we’ll have hay for the cattle after all. Both of our local sources say they’ve been waiting on rain for another cutting. That’s a huge weight off of our shoulders.

I’ve not been online lately, just didn’t have anything much to post and been dealing with age related problems. Getting old isn’t for wimps. It’s nothing serious, just really, really annoying. About all I’ve done the past several days is read and do a couple of loads of laundry.

The new desk/sewing table is wonderful. I’ve got a couple of boxes of stuff to go through yet to finish my organizing and can probably toss a few more bits and pieces of things I don’t need. I have a couple of things to take to Goodwill the next time I’m in town and the ladies at the store were thrilled when Brad dropped off the Airdyne bicycle and the walker we didn’t need.

It’s nice to be able to thin out the clutter and pass it on to someone else who has use for it. One person’s clutter is another person’s treasure. I have a couple of oil paintings and a piece of cross stitch mounted under glass that someone else will enjoy and I still need to go through the big closet in the hallway. I store bedding and sewing supplies in that closet but it’s time to sort it all out again and I still want to have those wooden shelves taken out and replace them with wire shelving.

I need to clear out the bottom of the built-in cabinet in the dining room as well. There are several books as well as bits and pieces of stuff that need to go. All of those books on the upper shelves need to come down and be wiped off and the wood wiped down with orange oil polish. Brad can help me with that and he may want to rearrange some of his books while we’re at it. I have a bunch of decorative Christmas tins on an upper shelf that I need to ask Audrey if she wants, if not they go to Goodwill.

I just checked the weather radar online and we are definitely in for more rain, but I think the worst of the heavy storms will miss us. Come on, rain! I took a container of chili out of the freezer to thaw for dinner later. It’s in the mid 60’s outside, windy and sprinkling rain. Good day for chili and cornbread. I’m glad Brad has had the opportunity to spend time on the gun range lately since we are finally getting some rain now.

I adopted Audrey’s habit of drizzling honey on top of the cornbread batter before putting it in the oven to bake. It’s amazing!

Have a blessed Monday, 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.
