Arctic Front On The Way

This is what I awoke to this morning. The term ‘leaden skies’ comes to mind. It’s 42° and this is as warm as it gets today! The temps start dropping within the hour and the wind begins to pick up. In less than two hours it will be 35° with 20 mph winds. By noon it’ll be 19° with a 25 mph wind. Gusts will be near 40 mph. By 7 pm it will be 11° with a 20 mph wind. Not a fit day for man nor beast as the saying goes. There is a package at the post office we need to pick up and Brad needs to get a prescription at the pharmacy so he’ll want to get that done before noon. I stepped out in the garage to get the photo out the north side door and there isn’t a breath of air moving out there right now. I could hardly wait to get back in the house.

I’ve turned the heat up to 70° from 67° where we keep it overnight. I’m toying with the thought of making coffee myself so Brad will wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Our latest shipment of Black Rifle Coffee arrived yesterday and we have three bags in the cupboard. I think Brad had just opened the last bag a couple of days ago. Some days we end up making a full pot, half a pot at a time. It’s easier to just make six cups, which is two mugs, at a time and if we want more then we make more instead of ending up pouring out coffee we don’t want to drink. It’s wonderful coffee and we don’t want to waste it.

It’s 7:45 and I’m going to stay bundled up in my recliner with my knitting for a little while longer and then I’ll start the coffee. Ya’ll stay warm out there and have a safe day. God bless.

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.
