A Quiet Monday

We had nowhere to be and stayed at home today. We were able to enjoy having the front door open again. Plenty of fresh air, but not much sunshine. We have a chance of rain, 95% around 2 am and some wind later tonight and again in the afternoon tomorrow. Tuesday is chiropractor day and we need a few things in the way of groceries.

Brad was able to get a pistol firing again after finding a video on YouTube. It’s nice when you are able to repair things yourself instead of having to take it in to someone else. It was something to do with the firing pin and I’m glad he was able to fix it.

We both slept late and have been off kilter all day and out of our normal routine for meals. I’ve got to get some sleep tonight and I might need to take something to help with that. I normally get my sleep routine straightened out in a couple of days after I’ve had trouble sleeping but this has been going on for several nights and I need a reset button!

I thawed some homemade chili and we ate around 4 pm so we won’t be hungry again before bedtime. Tomorrow is another day and we should be able to get up at a decent time and get moving. I need to make my grocery list. We don’t need much and I’d rather just stop and shop in person this time around so I’ll use the note feature on my phone to make the shopping list.

It’s a little after 8 pm. I’ve had my shower early and I’ll work on my Hitchhiker Shawl while I have OAN on streaming video. There isn’t anything else on cable TV that is of any interest. I could always see which Midsomer Murder episode is playing on Pluto TV while I knit. I’ve got 38 ‘teeth’ on the shawl now.

Have a peaceful Monday night and a good start to your day in the morning. God bless.

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.
