Not Much Going On

The snow is gone, it’s still above freezing but will dip down below 30° tonight. I’ve spent the day in the recliner with a case of the sniffles and a bit of a cough from sinus drainage. Typical winter stuff in our area when the weather waffles back and forth this time of year.

Glad we got our errands run earlier in the week and have nothing in particular to do for a couple of days. I’m giving my hands a rest from knitting today, puttering around on the laptop playing games on Pogo and watching OAN on streaming video. In short: I’m bored. Yup. The woman who has no excuse to be bored…is bored. Such is life. It happens. Tomorrow is another day and I hope to have my sinus crud under control soon.

As for the winter weather event, it appears to have impacted other areas of the state and left us pretty much alone. Of course Oklahoma got a good bit of it as usual. And west Texas. And even south Texas. It’s 36° here now so we have the heat on emergency to give the heat pump a rest. It would be struggling before morning with below freezing temps.

Looks like Trump will be allowed back on Facebook and Instagram, but I’ll be surprised if he is active on either platform. He hasn’t been active on Twitter and has no plans to do so. Since he has his own social media platform he’s probably better off anyway.

Ilan Omar is upset about losing her seat on the foreign affairs committee and looked to be on the verge of tears earlier today. Shifty Schiff and Eric Fartwell are upset as well about losing their spots on the intel panel. It’s all rather entertaining to say the least. I don’t think a lot is going to change one way or another and I don’t actually care except for a passing chuckle at the expense of the bullies who’ve been lying to the American taxpayers for several years. But, politicians lie. It’s what they do. I have to say though, that the proposed Pelosi Act was a stroke of genius. Love the name of the bill. Not that I believe for a minute it will ever pass the Senate. But it’ll be fun to watch the show. Let’s not forget the popcorn.

So, hope your Hump Day has been pleasant and blessed. I’m headed off for a hot shower and a new lease on life. There isn’t much in life that a hot shower won’t improve!

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.
