A Little Progress Is Better Than None

I had hoped to be further along with the purple yarn on the cowl project, but it seems that I strained a muscle in my right arm raising a window that needs some WD-40 to make it easier to open. Oh, well. Such is life. It’s always something! My right bicep is aching after an hour of knitting, but I have four inches added to the cowl after several days of working on it. After I get out of the shower later I’ll grab the Chryofreeze CBD roll on and that will do the trick. The last time I needed it for sore muscles it lasted three days. Not bad! I should use it on my cranky ankle more often, but I forget to use it.

This is a busy week for us. Brad had dental work on Monday morning to replace an old filling and redo a crown. We both saw the chiropractor yesterday afternoon and then I had my teeth cleaned and had a good report from our dentist. The dentist is across the street from the chiropractor so that was convenient. Brad spent several hours in Oakridge today catching up on stuff with the police chief. Tomorrow we both see our dermatologist for check ups and as far as I know we have nothing going on for Friday!

I got a little cleaning done today and I’m caught up on laundry after four medium size loads. The last load is in the dryer and the buzzer just went off but I can deal with it later, just a load of whites that need folding. Kitchen is clean, living room is clean except for moving both recliners out from the wall to dust and vacuum. I still need to dust and vacuum both bedrooms, dining room and my workroom but that won’t take long and I’ll have it all done before the weekend so I won’t have to worry about housework until next week.

We thought that the grass seed Brad put out didn’t germinate, but turns out we were wrong! There is rye grass growing over most of the ground that was cleared under the power lines and we’ll reseed at some point with coastal Bermuda which is what we prefer. We waited too late to be able to find what we wanted so we had to make do for now.

It’s been in the mid 70’s, still and humid all day. I originally thought about hanging some clothes out on the line to dry but changed my mind once I stepped outside. Ick. And we have more thunderstorms in the forecast beginning Friday afternoon. That’s OK. We’ll take the moisture while we can get it. Here’s hoping we will have enough rainfall for a crop of hay at the farm this year.

We are making plans to finish the inside of the garage with insulation and wafer board. We started years ago but it got put on hold and now that Brad is retired and is over his shoulder surgeries we should be able to work on it a little bit at a time until we get it finished. There’s no hurry and it’s something we can work on together.

It’s time to close the blinds for the day and get a hot shower. Hope your week is going well. God bless, ya’ll.

Happy Hump Day!

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.
