Lazy, Cold Day

It’s in the low 40’s today but feels more like the mid 30’s, damp and overcast. Brad is in his Man Cave, I heard him on the pistol range a little while ago. I’ve got my knitting to work on and Midsomer Murders streaming on Roku. He made us each an afternoon cup of coffee and took his to the Man Cave. I sat for a few minutes only at the spinning wheel and paid close attention to my posture. Yup. I need to work on that and I don’t need to be doing any spinning for at least another two days. The back spasms are under control but I could use the heating pad about now. All in all it’s not that bad and it’s been 20 years since I had a problem that required repeated visits to the chiropractor so I can’t complain! It could always be worse!

There are 35 ‘teeth’ on my Hitchhiker now and I have approximately 2.5 ounces left out of a 6 ounce skein. The rows get longer and longer and it’s a good project to work on while watching TV. This will go well with the last pair of socks I knitted.

I just checked the weather app on my phone and it’s down to 37° outside. I’m glad I don’t need to be out and about today and can get some knitting done. I’m not sure what we’ll have for dinner later but I really don’t feel like cooking and I doubt that Brad would want me to. Last night I thawed the last of the beef stew and we had it on toast. It was great! I just remembered we have some Black Bean Soup in the freezer. That wouldn’t take much prep time at all!

Hope your Friday evening is as blessed as ours. Stay safe. Stay warm. Remember it’s RED Friday! Remember Everyone Deployed!

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.
