Snow, At Last

I stayed home this morning but Brad went on to the chiropractor and picked up the mail and lunch for the two of us. My herb and spice order from Simply Organic arrived. Does this look like $60 worth of herbs and spices to you? Prices are becoming ridiculous but at least these are good quality and organic.

The spice rack is now fully stocked and I’ll make good use of it. I tend to use more spices than herbs and prefer the small containers of herbs.

Yesterday I had an order from Walmart delivered to the house…granted the FedEx driver left it 200 yards from the house out at the road instead of bringing it to the house as directed, but I did get an alert on my phone that it had been dropped off. The package contained a couple of pair of stretch denim slacks that are currently in the dryer. I hate trying on clothing in stores and would rather order online.

I’ve found some tee shirts from Lands End that I like as well as some long, cotton knit nightgowns and they are very easy to order and fit me perfectly. Now that I know these slacks will fit I’ll order a couple of more pairs and toss out some older slacks that are getting a bit thread bare.

I have a long way to go on Brad’s socks, but that’s not surprising considering I’m working with 90 stitches on each needle. So. It’s back to knitting for me after sneaking in a second post today. Btw, I’ve managed to post daily now for 90 days in a row. That’s kind of cool for this semi-reclusive old granny!

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.
