Another Glorious Day

It’s 10 am and the sky is overcast. We are waiting for the rain to begin, so yes! It’s another glorious day! The drought is finally over and we have the potential for several inches of rain over the next few days.

Neither Brad nor I have any errands to run, nothing to do away from the house at all today. We can stay in and read and enjoy the quiet. I spent a lot of time on my feet yesterday and I just thought my ankle was cranky by the time I got home…until my feet hit the floor at 9 am this morning. Groan. It’s a day for ‘feet up in recliner’ and an ice pack. I really need to stop staying up til after midnight every night and get up at a reasonable hour in the morning instead of sleeping until 9 am. Too much of the morning is gone by the time I am up and at ’em.

I have finished the twenty-four books in the Dragonriders of Pern series and can’t decide what to read next. I looked on Rakuten Kobo for knitting books but the only books that interested me are books I already own in either hardback or paperback and I looked through seventy pages of listings. I might have a look at Amazon and Books A Million for ideas and if I find something I can search for it on Rakuten Kobo.

I’ve started the gusset increases on a pair of socks I’m knitting from one of Jo Dee’s yarns. I wanted another pair of lacy socks and this pattern makes a nice ribbing for the cuff as well.

The rain has begun and I need to get something to eat…and perhaps another mug of coffee would be appropriate. Brad has announced that he would like brisket tacos for lunch so he’ll be heading to Frank & Lola’s later for take-away.

Have a blessed RED Friday, ya’ll. Remember Everyone Deployed!

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.
