Leaves are falling, it’s damp and drizzly. Cooler weather on the way. Our foundation guys were here and took care of leveling the floor in no time at all yesterday morning. I was in town running errands and seeing the chiropractor and as I was leaving his office Brad texted me to let me know the work was done and the guys were leaving!

The cracks in the sheet rock are closed. The kitchen range and the fridge are level once more. The doors all shut and latch. There isn’t a half inch gap at the top of the front and back doors. And the original foundation work was under warranty so it didn’t cost us a dime. Whew! Dodged that bullet!

Brad had taken the time to blow all the dirt, dust and leaves out of the garage while I was gone and discovered a couple of dead mice behind some plywood leaning up against the west wall. So that’s all done. We have a couple of other things that we need to get our repair guy out to take care of and ask him about replacing the gutters. It will be nice to get it all done before cold weather settles in.

By the time I got to my first errand in town I had a migraine building and the chiropractic adjustment halted that, thank goodness! I grabbed a medium Americano at the drive thru at the coffee shop to help ward off the headache. I got back home as soon as I could. Brad took care of lunch after he cooled off from cleaning the garage and we both settled in to rest for the afternoon.

I put in a grocery order to be picked up this morning and other than a load or two of laundry there is nothing else to do. I’ll be tending to my knitting for most of the day. Setting aside time to work on each project is working well and I’m happy with my progress. I’ll focus on finishing everything that is under construction before planning another project. Wow. What a concept! I’ve got to wrap my mind around that!

Have a blessed day, ya’ll. We’ll be enjoying the quiet out here in our little corner of Texas.

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.
