4th Day of Christmas

Trying to be upbeat today. It’s not working very well, but I’m focusing on the fact that this is the 4th Day of Christmas. It isn’t over yet, just remember our blessings!

Bottom line, not enough sleep. Added to the fact that the electric coop guys have been out at the road for a couple of days now trimming trees. All day. Even with the house closed it’s wearing on my nerves and I’m crabby.

I put in an order for groceries and got back home with them. Only a couple of things that weren’t perfect, but the fact that I didn’t have to brave shopping in person cancels that out. The good thing is that when I got home just now with the groceries the tree trimming guys have finished with the section of lines closest to us.

And it’s 68° outside! After we got through bringing in the groceries we opened the doors to air out the house. We’ve had it closed up for a couple of weeks and it’s stuffy in here. A little fresh air is a nice change.

The groceries and canned goods are put away and I am determined to finish this cowl. Today. I think a hot cup of lavender & camomile tea might be just the thing to improve my mood, along with my knitting. And I’ve finally learned after all these years that even though I didn’t sleep well one or two nights it usually catches up to me and I sleep like a dead person the next night. It’s no big deal really. I just don’t like feeling irritable.

Have a blessed Wednesday, ya’ll.

Btw, the tea was a good idea…

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.
