Early Mornings

I’m waking up earlier in the mornings than usual for some reason lately. I like early mornings but I’ve not been much of a morning person most of my life. Maybe that is changing.

I like seeing the sun coming up behind the trees when the skies aren’t overcast. We don’t get much of a view of sunsets due to the trees west of us but sometimes I can get a nice shot of the clouds in the evening.

Early mornings are good for quiet time and morning devotionals like Divine Office before it’s time to think about starting the coffee and making breakfast. Today I have a grocery order to pick up between 8 and 9 am and I’ll probably bring home breakfast croissants from the coffee shop on my way home with the grocery order.

Brad has an appointment with the dermatologist after lunch and I wanted to get the shopping done early so we don’t have to fit that in later in the day. We want to check with the local hospital supply business and our pharmacist about a newer model TENS unit but it will probably wait until tomorrow after the chiropractor visit. We live far enough from town that we try to make our trips in and back worth the drive and we take the SUV when possible to save fuel.

I finished the first mini skein in the cowl I’m working on and I’ll probably take that project with me while Brad is at the dermatologist. I always take knitting with me when I am away from home but I don’t always get to work on it, especially at the chiropractor. Randy gets me in and out fairly quickly but sometimes I wait a bit if he has to work someone in at the last minute. I usually get a little knitting done while waiting for my groceries to be brought to the car and I always have knitting in my lap at the coffee shop drive-thru, just to keep my hands busy while I wait.

It’s cloudy this morning, temps in the mid 50’s with a slight chance of rain, clearing and sunny later in the day with temps into the low 70’s. Yup. That’s right. December in Texas doesn’t always mean it will be in the 40’s. We probably have warm air being pushed ahead of another cold front.

I need to get out with the leaf rake and clean up the pine needles that the guys swept off the roof Saturday. It will be good exercise and I need the fresh air. I spend a lot of time in the house and need to make time to get outside during the day.

There’s plenty to do around here and with all of our hobbies and interests there is no excuse for either of us to be bored. Have a blessed Monday, 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.
