Happy Hump Day

The promised rain is upon us and it began sprinkling a few minutes ago. Every little bit will help and there is more rain on the way tomorrow.

I was going to start a load of laundry but hearing thunder has dissuaded me from that chore. Not going to have appliances running during a thunder storm if I can help it. It will wait til later when this storm cell has passed us. The garage is closed up, hatches are all battened down. We were enjoying a bit of fresh air before lunchtime when we smelled smoke from someone burning brush so we closed the house up and turned on the A/C. Hope whomever it was got their chore done before the rain arrived.

The kitchen is clean, dishwasher loaded to run when we go to bed. Whatever we decide on for our evening meal won’t require a great deal of prep or cleanup. I’m close to finishing the cranberry red yarn on the cowl, dozed off in my recliner before I could get to that point last night. I’ve got Midsomer Murders streaming on Pluto TV via Roku, “Vixen’s Run” one of our favorites and I need to get back to the Thomas Sowell book I’ve been reading. My Kobo Libra 2 e-reader that I purchased last January is not holding a charge like it was so I have to put it back on the charger more often than I used to. Electronic devices don’t like me. Either that or I jinx them. Such is life…

Hope your Hump Day is a good one. God bless, ya’ll.

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.
