5th Day of Christmas

And…another day dawns. We both slept in and feel better for it, have each had our first mug of coffee. Brad set the pot up for another six cups and drove into town to the coffee shop for breakfast croissants. It’s been awhile since we had one for breakfast. I just started the coffee brewing to be ready when he gets back.

It’s 64° and very damp outside. The forecast calls for cloudy skies throughout the day with temps in the mid to high 60’s. There has to be another front coming in pushing warm air ahead of it but I’ve not paid attention to the weather map. The tree trimming guys are south of us now and can only be heard if we’re outdoors. It’s too humid to open the house and we don’t need the heat running. I may switch over to A/C later to keep the house from being stuffy.

What a difference a good night’s sleep makes. We both feel a lot better and I actually got dressed before 11 am! I’ve got a load of laundry ready to go later after we’ve had breakfast. I need to make beds and tidy the kitchen and then I’ll do some spinning. The cowl is finished but I need to take a photo and I’ll wait to do that until it’s had a soak in Eucalan and time to dry. I’d love to be wearing it soon…when the temps dip back down to normal for December. Well. Normal for December in Texas is a bit fluid so to speak, but I prefer 40° to 50° myself.

I’ve not spent much time on social media lately. Honestly, it’s a bit boring except for the MeWe knitting group. I put up a few photos on IG now and then and check in on FB for local stuff. Twitter is all about the latest file drop and it doesn’t interest me. Not much going on with Gab but I like to check in with the Morning Brigade. Not having much energy lately I’ve spent way too much time playing games on Pogo and now I’m bored with that.

I hear Brad pulling in the garage so I’d better get moving and get ready for breakfast. Have a blessed Thursday, 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.
