Here Comes The Sun!

It’s 8 am, 44°, the sky is clear and the sun is shining after days of cloudy, drizzly weather. It was nice to wake up and not be stiff and sore and to see the sun coming up over the trees.

I can mark myself safe from Black Friday shopping online. I could have ordered yarn or fiber but since I don’t need either there was no sense in purchasing something just because it’s on sale. I almost chimed in on the yarn though since it’s a closeout sale with Tuskenknits. I’ve already got more yarn than I’ll knit in the next ten years as it is. Right. Who am I kidding? I’ve got more yarn than I can knit for the rest of my life! Fiber, too!

Two of the three pairs of slacks I ordered last week fit me perfectly. The third pair is a bit snug so I’ve put them back to try again after I’ve lost more weight. And my Young Living order had a nice surprise in the box…

It must be a promotional since I didn’t order it and I’d noticed that Daneen at The Whole Body Healing Center had mentioned in a FB post that you could have your choice of an EO diffuser with a Young Living purchase from her. In any case it’s a lovely addition to my studio and holds more water than my other diffusers. I have a small one for the bedroom and two medium size, one in the living room and one has been in the studio but I’ll put that one in the master bedroom now.

I don’t do laundry on Sunday. But, I opened the package from Lands End and took the slacks out of their plastic bags and wham! One pair has a very strong odor of dye so into the washer! I went ahead and tossed in a couple of other things for a good size load and I’ll make sure to put plenty of white vinegar in the first rinse to get rid of any lingering odor. Actually, I don’t believe it’s the dye so much as the chemicals used to set the dye and it’s not unusual to get a whiff of a formaldehyde type odor from new fabric. I don’t need a migraine!

Brad is off at church with the grandkids and will bring us lunch later. It’s been awhile since we had anything from Chili’s and I’ll see what he has in mind when he calls. For now I’m going to kick back in the recliner with my knitting and keep an ear out for the washer so I don’t miss putting the vinegar in the first rinse.

Have a blessed Sunday, 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.
