Still Raining!

The rain has dropped to a misty drizzle for now, still in the low 50’s this morning, with a slight breeze. We pray for it to continue as long as possible so the stock ponds at the farm can begin to fill up. We’ve not much water and very little grass, but there will be some hay to be had now that we are getting rain.

I downloaded a compilation of Agatha Christie books from Kobo yesterday morning and read “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” by bedtime. I’ll take a break before beginning the next book so I don’t strain my eyes so much. A little reading is a good thing, too much reading and my eyes don’t like it so I’m trying to behave and take better care of myself.

Neither of us was hungry enough for much of a breakfast this morning. Brad had a cup of yogurt but all I wanted was coffee. Once again, I didn’t get up until a little after 9 am. The brisket tacos that we ate for lunch yesterday were wonderful and very filling. All we had was a light snack for dinner. We’ll probably have a bowl of green salad for lunch later. Some days all I need is one or two meals to satisfy me. I figure if I’m not hungry I don’t need to force myself to eat. It’ll just come back to haunt me later.

There’s nothing worth watching on cable TV this morning so we turned it off. I might look for something on streaming video later while I work on my knitting. I’d like to finish the gusset increases on the current pair of socks and plan another shawl project using more of my hand-spun yarns.

Now that I can set my sewing machine and serger up and use them comfortably I need to get my mending basket out and get some work done on that front. I love the new desk/sewing table and I can easily set my laptop up in that room now if I like. I can also move my favorite spinning wheel in there and have better light and watch streaming video on the laptop while I spin.

Before I do anything else I need to toss some sheets in the washer and do a bit of dusting in the living room. The darker furniture is nice, but the dust is easier to see! Speaking of seeing, the sun is trying to come out now and the room is much brighter. It’s easy to get into hibernation mode when it’s heavily overcast and drizzling outside.

Have a wonderful Saturday, 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.
