Goodbye, January

We are about to say goodbye to January but our chances for icy weather will be around for a bit yet. This photo was taken last February 24th, Brad’s birthday. I half expected to wake up to something similar this morning but we didn’t get the precip that was forecast and it seems to be west of us for now. One of the ladies in the MeWe knitting group was saying something earlier about flights into DFW and Love Field being cancelled for this afternoon. Funny how the really bad weather sometimes misses us and dumps on the Metroplex south of us and Oklahoma north of us.

Brad has a couple of errands to run in town before the next chance of precip arrives this afternoon and the roads get icy. It’s still below freezing, cloudy and overcast but the roads are clear. I’m going to grab something out of the freezer to thaw for us to eat later. I’ve still got black bean soup, roast beef and veggies, and beef stew to choose from. We finished the BBQ chicken yesterday. I’ve got several pounds of ground beef and four very large chicken breasts in the freezer as well as some salmon fillets and a little bit of BBQ sauce. I’m not ready for more BBQ chicken just yet so I’ll save that for another day.

Brad just called to say he had reconciled a rather large amount of money that we didn’t recall coming out of our checking account. It was still pending over the weekend and he went to the bank to find out what was up. Ahem. Yeah, he wrote a check for all the yard work we had done over a week ago but it didn’t show up online as a check, etc. since it was still pending. All is well, whew! He’s off to run the rest of his errands and pick up a couple of things from Albertson’s on his way home. I think I’ll start the bean soup thawing so we can have something hot to eat when he gets back.

Once I get the soup thawing I’ll head back to the studio to work on my fiber inventory and then do a little knitting later…

…and I decided that a hot shower was in order after getting the soup thawing…now I’ll work in the studio until Brad gets home.

Have a blessed Monday, ya’ll. Stay warm. Stay safe.

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.
