Hello, Sunshine!

On those mornings that I don’t wake up before sunrise it’s nice to open the blinds to see the sun shining brightly. I was on my feet quite a bit yesterday and busy all day so I slept like the proverbial log last night. The mattress is very comfortable, but when I sleep in the same position all night I tend to be a bit stiff and sore in the morning. Still, it’s nothing that a cup or two of hot coffee won’t cure…and morning exercises of course.

It occurred to me a couple of days ago that the reason my left ankle is bugging me lately is not due to the arthritis because taking turmeric daily has made a big difference with that. The problem is that I’m not taking the necessary time during the day to make sure that the Achilles tendon in my left foot is properly stretched. I’m working on that now.

I got my replacement credit card in the mail a couple of days ago and managed to get everything updated with my card information. I have several monthly charges that are automatic, some yearly charges, and it’s nice to have all of that straightened out again!

Brad is now working part time for Chief Bill Dixon in Oak Ridge in Cooke County. He was sworn in yesterday evening and has his badge. His job will be firearms training and investigations. Although he is a patrolman he won’t actually be patrolling the town. Bill has someone else to do that. He’ll have a couple of polo shirts with the PD logo and his name on them that will do for a uniform of sorts which is all he needs. He’ll meet with Bill when necessary and set up training for the department. He arrived home from Oak Ridge in a very good mood last night.

I did manage to get another inch of ribbing knitted on my Hooplah socks last night and I’ll see how far I can get with them today. I’d like to get at least halfway through the ribbing if possible. I’ll be winding off the two skeins of yarn for Brad’s socks after breakfast. Speaking of breakfast. Brad isn’t up yet and it’s nearly 10 am so I had better go roust him out of bed so he can get awake and take his morning meds and start the coffee. I think some hot cereal for breakfast sounds good. And I think I just heard Brad stirring around at the other end of the house!

Hope your day is as blessed as ours, ya’ll. Looks like another gorgeous day. It was 42° when I got up and it’s supposed to reach the mid to high 50’s with a light breeze blowing. Might be a good day to get back to our daily walk now that I’m about past the sinus crud.

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.
