We’ve had a front come through our area in NE Texas and it’s now in the 60’s after being in the 90’s for over a week. Tonight it will be in the mid 50’s. Now that’s more like it! Brad made a run to town for take away from Frank & Lola’s Bohemian Tacos. TheirContinue reading “Back to Spring Weather”
I’ve been busy knitting the past few days and managed to finish the second kitchen hand towel in the set of three. It’s easy to lose track of the pattern if I don’t pay attention and more than once I’ve gotten engrossed in something on TV and had to backtrack and correct my mistake. IContinue reading “Two Down, One to Go”
The first hand towel that I knitted with this pattern was white with yellow and blue stripes. I decided to do a yellow one and blue one as well and add them to the dishcloths for Audrey’s kitchen. I have plenty of yarn to work with. These towels will have the fold-over tab and aContinue reading “More Hand Towels”
We had some severe weather last night and the storm warning lasted until 1:00 am. There were folks without power, tree limbs down, hail damage all around us but we weathered it well. I took this photo a couple of hours before the storm hit, trying to get a good shot of the setting sunContinue reading “Aftermath of the Storm”
Our Texas weather still thinks it’s summer with temps in the 90’s for some days to come. Small discomfort since our home is cool and dry. All is well at the family farm. Hava and Magen have settled in, although they wake in the middle of the night, as does baby Gabriel when he hearsContinue reading “Grateful For Our Blessings”
It’s almost 8 pm, 85° with barely a breath of air moving outside this evening. I know our weather is unpredictable at the best of times, but this is almost the middle of May and it’s a bit warm for this time of the year. Thank goodness we upgraded our A/C two years ago. Well,Continue reading “Still Feels Like Summer”
It’s good to be home after the trip to pick up the puppies. I totally forgot to take photos when we took them out to the farm. It worked out better for Brad and I to drive to Savoy and pick them up and take them to the farm instead of Audrey and the kidsContinue reading “Successful Trip”
Tomorrow is the day! We pick up the puppies at the breeder. Audrey talked to his wife on the phone today and she emailed photos of the two female pups they set aside for us. We are all very excited and Audrey is beside herself. Brad and I are relieved that finding pups was thisContinue reading “Puppies!”
Been UA (Unauthorized Absence) for a few days. Yeah, the military doesn’t use AWOL anymore. So. I’m back. And, no. I’m not in the military, but my dad was, as were most of my cousins, several uncles, my father-in-law and my daughter, so. There you have it. I tend to use military acronyms for everydayContinue reading “It’s Monday…”
My favorite irises have finally bloomed! I brought these home from the family farm many years ago, some that my mother-in-law grew in her yard. I think of her every time I see iris in bloom. Continuing my purple theme is the finished hand towel for my bathroom. It’s perfect and I’ll probably make anotherContinue reading “Purple!”
