Spoke Too Soon

I know I said we didn’t have anything to leave the house for but then we both took a good look in the fridge and decided we needed to stock up for the weekend so I put in an order last night online. I’m off to pick it up later this morning. No need to go early. Here’s hoping Walmart has the extra sharp cheese slices this time.

I not only made little progress with my knitting yesterday I ended up unraveling several rows when I spotted a mistake. I probably could have left it, but I’d know it’s there and it would bug me since it was on the side of one of the ‘teeth’ of the Hitchhiker scarf. On the side of the scarf where the decreases are made that form the teeth I knitted the first stitch instead of purling it and it left a noticeable bump that bugged me. It’s all fixed now but I’ve got to knit eight rows to get back to where I was when I spotted it. First time that’s happened in quiet a while. I was watching TV while knitting.

It stayed in the low 50’s last night and I don’t think the heat even came on. We set it at 67° overnight and I don’t recall hearing it kick in last night at all. The house is well insulated and there wasn’t that much difference in the inside and outside temps for the heat pump to cycle.

My Young Living order was delivered yesterday so I am well stocked with Ningxia Red for some time to come. I have plenty to share with Audrey if she needs some. I forgot my ‘tonic’ yesterday so I need to make sure I get it today. Some days I get two servings of 6 oz of juice and one scoop of powdered greens and it makes a huge difference in my energy level.

It’s time to get the coffee brewing and see about some breakfast. I’m out of eggs and Audrey’s hens aren’t laying due to them molting so I added eggs to my grocery order. This is the first time in a year that I’ve had to buy eggs. We got spoiled. We might have hot oatmeal again. Good weather for it.

Have a blessed Saturday, ya’ll. Stay safe out there! I need to get another photo of the scarf since I have 28 teeth finished now.

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.
