It’s A Beautiful Morning

It’s 61° outside, partly cloudy, with a light breeze. The grass is greening up and the ground is still very squishy! We have more rain coming later this week so that is good news. We’ve not had a lot of runoff as most of the rain has been slow and steady and has been soaking in. There isn’t much water in the creek and there’s been no flash flooding in our area.

Brad is bringing our Sunday take-away after he gets the kids back to the farm with their take-away lunch. Whataburger for them and Culvers for us. I want the Reuben Sandwich with fries and I can warm it all up in the oven on the air fryer setting to get it crisp.

I managed to get a little knitting done on all three pairs of socks yesterday. I have to switch from the two lacy patterns to the plain ribbing on the purple socks to give my hands a rest. As much as I loved the cool, rainy weather my joints are still complaining a bit. In fact, I’m headed off for a hot shower when I’m through with this post. Need to get muscles and joints relaxed a bit.

One thing I’ve noticed is how dry my skin is lately so it’s time to kick into gear with the body lotion rub down after my shower. Old age and winter weather sure dries out my skin. Fortunately I have Simplified Soap’s Goat Milk Body Lotion on hand. I prefer the Lemon & Lavender and I keep a couple of refill bags in the closet. It’s made right here in Texas on the Gulf Coast. They have many more products as well.

This is another good product that we both use on hands and feet. Smells wonderful and really takes care of dry skin. It’s made in Oklahoma by Goodies Unlimited and I first discovered it at a DFW Fiber Fest in Irving about ten years ago. I order online when I run out and she has 8 oz jars as well as the small 2 oz size.

It’s time for that shower so I had better get moving. Before I know it Brad will be back with lunch and I want to make sure I’m ready when he arrives. Have a marvelous Sunday, ya’ll. God bless.

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.
