Friday!

The work week is winding down and the weekend is approaching. Trying to get any shopping done this week has been nuts! Traffic is unbelievable. How there aren’t a string of fatality wrecks is beyond me. One elderly woman parked next to Brad in the grocery store parking lot put her car in gear, tromped the accelerator, shot across into the next line of cars behind her…and rammed one of them at about 30 mph. Someone else pulled out in front of him at an intersection and just sat there, blocking traffic. He had nowhere to go but to the left to get around them and avoid a collision.

He said something last night about not wanting to go into town on Saturday for our regular breakfast croissants from the coffee shop and that maybe today would be better. I’m not sure if we need to do that, given the way people are driving this week. Maybe we should have a breakfast muffin at home. We’ll see. I’m letting him sleep in this morning. His shoulder is doing so much better and the chiropractor is very happy with his progress. I think he needs a couple of days in a row of NOT going to town. We are well stocked with food and necessities anyway and it’s gotten cold again, down into the 30’s at night and the 50’s during the day. It’s 9 am, 38° and overcast this morning. There is a chance of snow and/or winter mix north of us on the other side of Red River and I hope that gives us a miss.

I finished the second book in the “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” and bought the third one, “Life, the Universe and Everything.” I may put that one on hold for a bit…about ready for a change in topic. I’ve ordered a paperback copy of Joe Cater’s book “Titanic Britain: 50 Years of the Left-Wing Liberal Iceberg.” I had the Kindle version but it wouldn’t transfer to my Kobo e-reader and Kobo doesn’t have it listed on their website. That will be the second paperback book I’ve ordered lately. I found this one on the Books-a-Million website. I’m trying to avoid shopping on Amazon when I can. The other book, “Rabbitskin,” I ordered directly from the author in Florida. There are very few books that I own that I haven’t re-read at some point.

I’m past the halfway point on the current mini-skein cowl, started the deeper orange section last night. I’ve been watching streaming video and knitting the last few days and watching the Left lose their collective minds on Twitter with Elon’s suspensions of several so called journalists for real time doxxing of him and his family. Definitely a violation of TOS on the platform. Funny how those very people thought it was such a hoot when conservatives got suspended for no reason at all but now they’re all upset when they are the ones getting suspended and for good reason. “Rules for thee but not for me” seems to be a common left-wing liberal theme.

It’s 9:15 and I think I should go get Brad up. He doesn’t like to sleep too late in the mornings. Definitely a morning to stay home and have a home cooked breakfast. Have a blessed day, ya’ll. Don’t forget it’s RED Friday!

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.
