Fourth Sunday of Advent

Once again I find myself wondering where the time has gone. Here we are, it’s the Fourth Sunday of Advent and a week from now is Christmas Day. Wow.

My week of being on my feet more often and making sure I get as many ‘steps’ in as possible during each day has finally caught up to me and I’m probably going to spend most of today in the recliner with the heating pad on either my shoulder or my ankle.

I’ve spent a good bit of time working on my spinning project so I’m a bit stiff and sore from drafting fiber but it doesn’t take long to get sore muscles and stiff joints loosened up. Bottom line: I’m better for the increased exercise, having tripled the number of steps I walk each day since this time a week ago, but I’m tired. Bone. Tired. I’m getting there, I just need a couple of days to rest and then be ready to get ‘er done for this week.

I’ve weighed out the next four ounces of BFL/Tussah combed top and divided it into half ounce sections, carefully rolled up and sitting in the bottom of the basket with what’s left of the two ounces I’m working on for the current bobbin sitting on top.

I did a quick inventory of standard bobbins and located all twelve of them. Four of them are full of fiber and awaiting four more full bobbins of the same fiber. Four of them are either partially or completely full and four are empty. I can only find five jumbo bobbins and I could have sworn I had six, but I may be wrong. I need to dig back through some photos and double check. Actually, Now that I come to think about it…the jumbo flyer came with one jumbo bobbin and I seem to remember that I purchased four more jumbo bobbins. Yep. That might be it.

Brad will be home in a bit after taking the grandchildren home from church and delivering their Sunday lunch. I had planned on having lunch ready for us here at home but I think I’ll let him bring take-away instead. Preferably something chicken-fried with gravy, green beans and garlic mashed potatoes.

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.
