Almost There

I’m hoping to finish this pair of socks today. It’s slow going with a lace pattern but very much worth it. I’ve got Pluto TV on Roku streaming while I knit. Midsomer Murders is on. Brad is at the shop tinkering and testing ammo.

It’s a gorgeous day here in our little corner of Texas. We have the front door open for a bit of fresh air. It’s mostly sunny with a little breeze and it’s 75°, up from a chilly 50° when we got up this morning. Today was CJ’s breakfast day. Brad went in for scrambled egg/bacon croissants and we had our usual Black Rifle Coffee, JB blend.

I decided to trot on over to Twitter to see what’s been going on since Elon took over. It’s a hoot and a half! The left are losing their collective minds and it’s so entertaining. Cat Turd is on a roll, as usual. Then again, I am easily entertained! I admit it! I live a simple life. No complications. I tweeted Elon asking for state flag emojis. I want a Lone Star flag on my profile.

Tomorrow Brad and I take the pups to the vet for their next round of vaccines and they will be caught up for now. I can hardly wait to see them! They are nearly nine months old and growing like puppies! I’ll be sure to get some photos for us and Audrey as well. They are such good pups and Audrey is training them well.

I need to thaw some chicken for a pot of soup. I’ve been thinking about home-made chicken soup all weekend. Some apple crisp would go well with soup. And I need to make another batch of pickled red onions…so good with a sprinkling of feta cheese on green salad.

I’m making sure I get my Melaleuca vitamins morning and evening and at least one serving of Ningxia Red with a scoop of Field of Greens in it. My energy level is up and I’m less likely to want a nap in the afternoon. There’s too much to do, so much to knit and read and cook and…well…just enjoy life! I hate having no energy. Glad I finally found the right combination. Hopefully this regimen will help with the allergy and arthritis symptoms as well. I’m only 68 and I’m weary of feeling like 90!

Hope your Monday is as blessed as ours. We don’t get trick or treaters out in the boondocks but there have been sponsored events in our area for safe, spooky fun for kids and adults both.

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.
