Just Another Monday

We started the day with Black Rifle Coffee and Breakfast Croissants from CJ’s Coffee Cafe. I didn’t get up until 9 am and it was about 9:30 when we started breakfast. It’s cool and damp out this morning, mostly cloudy and pretty quiet out where we live. We are fortunate to be able to remain at our rural location and watch the craziness from a distance.

The Keystone Pipeline is leaking in Kansas. Twitter is blowing up over the Twitter Files. Elections have been stolen, again, and nothing will be done about it most likely.

But gasoline has come down a bit, we can afford the food, fuel, and gifts we need for the Christmas Season and we’ve never been happier. Seriously. Brad hasn’t worked full time in four years. His time on his church board has ended. All he has on Sundays is picking the grandkids up to take them to church, grabbing lunch for them and their parents and getting them back to the farm. He is an elder in his church and has periodic meetings that don’t last long and he enjoys teaching a Bible study class Sunday mornings.

The small PD he was helping with in a neighboring county has shut down per the citizens decision so he isn’t an active reserve officer anywhere at the moment. That can change but we’re in no hurry.

He’s enjoying time at home at the computer or down at his Man Cave cleaning firearms and reloading ammo. He can shoot at the shorter range near the shop when the weather keeps him from driving, or walking, to the 600 yard range on the back of the property.

As for me, I have my housewifely chores, my knitting, spinning, reading and cooking to keep me happy. Not many women I know are as content as I am and I pray they will reach some sort of contentment in their lives at some point. We are blessed and we know it and are grateful for our blessings.

It’s 12:35 pm and I’m just getting around to posting something on my blog for today. I hope your day is as wonderful as mine. God bless, 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.
