Hello March!

It’s an overcast day with a light drizzle now and then. I had the front door open for a bit but the humidity convinced me to close the house and turn on the A/C. It’s been in the 60’s today and storms are headed our way either late tonight or early in the morning so we might as well keep the house comfortable.

While Brad was online, and the phone, ordering our Frigidaire freezer I was out in the garage consolidating everything onto one shelving unit. We’ve moved the empty unit out of the way and will probably put it on the east wall at the end of the built-in storage shelves.

We thought we’d be putting the freezer on the south wall, which is why I moved all that stuff in the first place, but on further consideration we decided to put it on the north wall next to the side door instead. There is a better electric outlet with a power surge button on it right next to where we would put the freezer, we don’t have to worry about how far into the garage we park the SUV, and there is a clear shot out of the back door straight to the freezer with nothing to dodge or climb over.

So, we’ll take some stuff that’s leaning up against the north wall where we want the freezer to go and move it over to the south wall where I cleared out that second shelving unit. Another plus is that the section of wall that the freezer will be against on the north wall is already insulated and finished with particle board instead of it having to sit against an unfinished wall on the south side.

We’ve taken a break from work in the garage for now. Tomorrow we’ll move both vehicles out of the garage and use the leaf blower to clean the garage floor and see about moving some more stuff where we want to store it. This is laundry day for me. I’ve finished two loads and started another, one more to do and I’m finished. Both beds have clean sheets and blankets on them. Any other dusting will have to wait while my antihistamine works on the sinus drainage. I’ve managed to keep from coming down with a full blown sinus infection and I intend to keep it that way! The good thing is that we both have all the time we need to get our cleaning and rearranging done both inside the house and out in the garage. It’s nice to make some progress and not let the clutter build up again. Been there. Done that.

I’ve started the next color in the infinity cowl. This is left over from a gradient of Fishknits yarn that I used for a hat several years ago. I’ve got a rerun of The Chelsea Detective on streaming video and it’s time for me to get something to eat. Brad had an appointment in town and brought me some brisket tacos. Hope your evening is as blessed 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.
