Hello, Monday!

Saturday took more out of me than I realized and I spent all day Sunday resting and doing pretty much nothing. But the garage is clean, the leaves are away from the south side of the garage and I discovered another section of good, rubber garden hose under the leaves. It seems Spring Cleaning is in full gear at our place.

We both needed the rest yesterday and woke up feeling ready to take on the week. We dropped Brad’s pickup off at the dealership to have the blower motor for the heating and a/c replaced. We’ll pick it up later today. It’s something that rarely goes out so they don’t keep them in stock but were able to get what they needed. Brad went back in later to pick up a pizza for our lunch. It’s been awhile since we ordered pizza and it was delicious.

I’ve got chicken breasts thawing in the fridge. I’ll pop them in the crock pot later, season them and top with sliced red onion and BBQ sauce. I’ve got new potatoes and fresh carrots to go with chicken and I’ll freeze part of it for later.

The yard is green and will be ready for mowing before long. It’s still too wet to have the landscape crew out yet and we have another chance for rain this week. We need to get the last of the pine needles out of the gutter on the southeast side of the house and we’ll have that chore taken care of. Brad can mention it to Juan when he calls about resuming the mowing. It won’t take ten minutes for one of his guys to get up a ladder and clean out that section of gutter. With all the work we’ve had done in the past months it will make things much easier for the mowers when it’s time to mow and fewer trees to trim around.

The sun is out but it’s a bit cool today. It was in the low 40’s this morning but is up to 51° at 2:30 pm. There’s a light breeze that makes it seem more like 47° but it’s still a nice day out. There isn’t anything we need to do outdoors today and we both have plenty to occupy us indoors. I have some laundry to do and furniture to dust. The kitchen is clean and the beds are made. Time to get back to my knitting.

Hope your day 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.
