Good Morning Monday!

By 8 am the sun was creeping over the tops of the trees, frost on the ground started to disappear, blue skies and big fluffy clouds floating by. Gorgeous Monday morning. I’m looking forward to our morning walk shortly. It’s already 50° at 10 am so we might be able to have the front door open later for some fresh air and sunshine.

I was up an hour before Brad and we’ve finished our first mug of coffee and thinking about more coffee to go with muffin and yogurt. We’re watching a couple of crows in the yard up to their usual antics. They’re very entertaining.

Later today I’ll head to town to do some in person grocery shopping and run a couple of other errands while I’m out and about. I need to stop at JOANN’s for lining fabric and cord stops for draw strings. I thought I still had at least one package of cord stops somewhere but I either used it or gave it to Audrey. Not a problem. Speaking of Audrey, I have a box of empty, clean jars to take to her. And Brad has some things to take to David as well. I also need to check at the local Books A Million store to see if they can locate a book I ordered online but haven’t received yet.

I’m going to spend the rest of my morning working on the lacy socks and I’ll start another pot of Black Bean Soup so I can freeze it for another time. It’s time to restock the freezer with things we eat on a regular basis. Have a blessed Monday, ya’ll. Our day looks to be absolutely gorgeous.

Edited: Change of plan. I chickened out on the in person shopping and placed an order online to pick up tomorrow after our chiropractic visit. I’d rather knit than shop today.

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.
