12th Day of Christmas

Happy 12th Day of Christmas! It’s 7:30 am and the sky is getting lighter. The sun will be peeking through the trees very soon. It’s 31° with no breeze this morning. We will start the coffee and decide about breakfast shortly. I’m leaning toward some hot cereal to go with our morning coffee. Maybe a toasted English muffin as well.

There is a layer of frost on the ground this morning. It should be warming up nicely in a couple of hours though.

Today I’ll continue to work on my purple socks and see how far I can get with the ribbing. Neil will probably be back today to haul off more of our junk. He took all the aluminum and metal with him yesterday. There’s still a lot of usable stuff out there and he is welcome to it. I’m still not sure how he got that huge old satellite dish into the the trailer without help. In 2015 we bought a house for Audrey and the kids and the dish was mounted in the back yard. It didn’t work and the previous owner said he would come get it but never did. One of the things we had to do before selling the house three years later when they moved to the farm was to haul off the dish. It’s been sitting out here at our place ever since. Well, it’s history now!

I’ve got a list of things on my ‘to do’ list today and need to get moving so I’m making this a short post. 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.
