Where Did My Day Go?

It’s closing in on 6 pm here and I can’t believe the day is nearly gone! Wow. We’ve both been busy all day, went for a walk after lunch and worked around the house this afternoon. Neil came back for one last thing that was in the ‘get rid of it’ pile near Brad’s Man Cave. We were out walking over the cleared ground between the driveway and the road when he came back. Brad called our landscape guy when we got back to the house to ask if he could send one of his guys out to take a look at the ground now that it’s cleared away in two places…it will mean considerably more mowing when the grass comes in.

Juan is sending one of his guys out in the morning to have a look and I’m pretty sure they’ll want to do some raking and maybe remove a stump or two that’s close to the surface of the ground. We’d like to have them seed the ground with winter rye grass if possible. The good news is that both areas will be fairly quickly mowed when the time comes since it’s pretty flat ground even though there’s more of it to mow…they can cover ground very quickly with the two zero-turn mowers. Juan hasn’t increased the amount he’s been charging us since he first started several years ago. Now we’ve added to the work his guys will need to do so I imagine it’s time for an increase in our monthly bill, which is fine with us. They do a wonderful job and charge a very reasonable fee.

The socks got finished yesterday but I haven’t put them in to soak yet. I have the lacy pair of socks to finish now…all ribbing but with a lace pattern that will take awhile. I’ll probably cast on for another plain pair with ribbing on the top of the foot to have something a bit more mindless in the way of sock knitting to keep on hand. I’ve got another skein of the same colorway that I’m using for the Hitchhiker scarf only in BFL/Nylon that will make nice socks. It’s busy yarn so it doesn’t need a fancy pattern.

I’ve got soup heated for dinner, the house is clean, laundry done, Brad’s in the shower and will be ready to eat soon. I’m taking the evening off from knitting to give my hands a rest. Tomorrow I’ll get back to spinning for Roc Day. Hope everyone had a wonderful Epiphany today! God bless, 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.
