A Little More Rain

It’s cloudy, 43° and feels like 39° outside this morning. Looks like we are in for a morning of showers. But that’s just fine because…have I mentioned that we have hay? And it appears the neighbor hauled his cows and bull off to another piece of property. At least that’s what he says. We’ll see.

I got a little knitting done yesterday and Brad had a good day at the range with his student. He was pretty much worn out when he got home and I had potatoes baking when he walked in the door. After he cooled off from his shower we had loaded baked potatoes for dinner and both of us made an early night of it. I thought to use the TENS unit on my left shoulder and arm before I went to bed and it made a huge difference. I need to remember that in the future.

Our roofer’s son made it out and sealed the shingles that had kicked up in high winds and led to the leak in the garage roof. It had to be postponed another week, we had expected to be finished with it before Thanksgiving, except the poor guy spent several days in the hospital with intestinal problems and needed time to recoup. He and his partner did a great job in a short period of time and even swept the pine needles out of the valleys of the gable roof over the front porch. They checked the entire roof and sealed a few more places just to be sure there were no more problems. It was warranty work so it didn’t cost us a dime.

Brad will be heading out shortly. The grandchildren are staying home today so he doesn’t need to pick them up for church but he’ll probably take lunch to the farm on his way home. I need to start a pot of soup later today. Perfect weather for that.

I’m caught up on housework. I did three loads of laundry while Brad was gone yesterday but I completely forgot to go in to pick up the groceries I wanted. Not a big deal, but we are out of yogurt now. It’s time to put some coffee on to brew and start my morning devotional.

Have a blessed Sunday, ya’ll. Stay warm and dry.

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.
