Where Did My Day Go?

Didn’t sleep well last night. Ended up falling asleep in my recliner after a late breakfast and slept until after 3 pm this afternoon. Wow. I’ve been one step behind all afternoon, it’s 9:45 pm and I’m not sleepy. Brad’s gone off to bed and I am done with TV for the day. I’ve read a little more of the Thomas Sowell book on my e-reader, found a print copy online for Brad and ordered that.

We’ve ordered a vacuum sealer for the food we’ll be storing in the freezer when it’s delivered and ready for food storage. I think that will be much better than the plastic Rubbermaid containers I originally planned on using. I can use a Sharpie and write on the vacuum bags, keeping track of contents and the date it went into the freezer.

We are both exited to have made so much progress in the garage and the next thing I want to do is get the shop vac out and clean out my SUV. I can get it washed later when I go into town. It’ll be nice to have a clean garage to work in instead of all the dirt and stuff underfoot before Brad used the blower to clear it all away.

We moved the empty plastic shelving unit over in the corner near where the freezer will go and we are storing extra paper products on it to give us more storage room on the built-in shelves near the back door. We can stock up on bottled water, gallon jugs of distilled water and white vinegar, RC and Canada Dry Ginger Ale as well as beer.

We swapped out the tables and the heavier wooden top table is ready to go to the farm if Audrey or David have a use for it. We’re trying to get as much stuff up off the concrete floor as possible to make it easier to keep the floor clean.

I’m headed off for a hot shower and then get some knitting and reading done before I turn in for the night. Hope your Saturday was 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.
