Another Rainy Day In Texas

We went to bed to the sound of thunder last night and woke up to more of the same this morning. We’ve had a steady rain since last night and it’s 12 Noon now. This is supposed to taper off and clear out in a couple of hours according to the forecast from last night.

We’ve been watching some of the circus on the news with testimony of the House investigation into Twitter and the Hunter Biden laptop controversy. I’d like to think something will be done about it in the end but I’m not holding my breath. In the meantime it’s fun to watch the former Twitter execs squirm when questioned by the House GOP members. MTG let them have a piece of her mind over her personal and campaign account being shut down for two years. She actually told them she’s glad they lost their jobs!

We didn’t watch the SOTU last night but apparently it was just more of The Resident lying as usual. MTG called him a liar at one point and when he mentioned the ‘problem’ with fentanyl at the border she shouted that it was his fault. Go Margery! Biden actually began arguing with members of Congress during his speech! Brad mentioned that he couldn’t think of another time in our history that such a thing has happened. Is the tide beginning to turn? We shall see. The Dems didn’t come across well last night at all.

I need to get back in my studio and finish that bobbin of BFL/Tussah and swap out the standard fast flyer for the jumbo fast flyer so I can ply onto a jumbo bobbin. I love having plump 8 ounce skeins of hand-spun yarn and I’ve even had a couple of 10 ounce skeins from Allons-Y! fiber since I tend to buy two or more braids in the same colorway and they are at least 5 ounces each.

The rain has almost stopped and the sky is getting lighter. Looks like this storm cell is beginning to thin out a bit. There is still rain showing on the local radar but I don’t see any more storm cells headed our way. It’s time for me to get in the kitchen and see about preparing lunch. It’s been awhile since we had a green salad and that’s what is on the menu for today.

Have a blessed Wednesday, ya’ll. Stay safe. Stay dry.

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.
