After The Storm

The sun is shining, it’s 68° with a light breeze. The worst of the storm missed us but hit Oklahoma pretty hard. Grass is beginning to turn green, I’m hearing frogs in the pond north of the house through the open living room window. The crows and hawks are vocal but I haven’t heard the donkeys from next door yet.

I’ve got a load of laundry going in the washer, lunch is planned for later. We had a late breakfast so it will be after 1 pm before we have lunch. I’m glad I went through my UFO/WIP stash and took photos to remind myself what needs to be worked on so that I can keep up my momentum and make some progress.

I’ve done my daily crossword on Pogo and checked in on Twitter. Nothing much going on there. I’ll post a link to this blog post on MeWe when I’m finished and check in on the chat group there. Haven’t been on Gab in awhile so I’ll log on later and see what’s up. Same with FB and IG. It only takes a few minutes to see what’s new and I don’t stay on any of the social media sites for more than a few minutes at a time. It’s easy to lose track of time and spend too much time reading things that are of no real value or virtue. I do enjoy the Catholic posts from several people and groups on Twitter and some of them really make my day!

I am about 1/3 of the way through the turquoise yarn and will need to decide on another colorway before long. I’ll see how much I can get done in between laundry and other household chores today. Having something else to tend to in the house keeps me from sitting in the recliner too long at a time, something I’ve been doing a lot of lately since I wasn’t feeling great. Time to get a move on! Things to do! Fresh air and sunshine to enjoy!

I’ve got a pot of chicken soup to get started later. The broth is chilled and needs to be skimmed, heated and poured into smaller containers for the freezer. I’ll leave out enough for a small pot of soup. The chicken is already cooked so all I need to do is sauté some veggies and then add the chicken and the broth to it. I think I’ll add some wide egg noodles to this batch.

The washer is filling for the first rinse and I want to add some vinegar to it so I’ll finish this post and get that taken care of. Have a blessed Monday, ya’ll. Hope your day is as gorgeous as ours!

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.
