Bipolar Texas Weather

It was in the low 70’s yesterday, sunny and windy. By bedtime it was 42° and the wind was rattling the window screens. The low was 32° last night and it will stay below 50° today. This will be a great day to stay indoors and work on my knitting. I need to do somethingContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather”

Almost There

I’m hoping to finish this pair of socks today. It’s slow going with a lace pattern but very much worth it. I’ve got Pluto TV on Roku streaming while I knit. Midsomer Murders is on. Brad is at the shop tinkering and testing ammo. It’s a gorgeous day here in our little corner of Texas.Continue reading “Almost There”

No Desk Yet, But…

The guys from Furniture Row arrived yesterday evening and we were expecting this table as well as the desk that will serve as my sewing table. No. Desk. It hasn’t arrived yet. Odd that no one at the store thought to let us know that all we were getting was the small table. I’m aContinue reading “No Desk Yet, But…”

Granny Needs Another Staycation

I’ve had a blast this week, but I’m about done. Two days back to back shopping with my adorable eleven year old grandson were a treat, but after all the cleaning I’ve done this month, being on my feet so much…I need a long weekend to recoup. I’d do it all again in a heartbeat,Continue reading “Granny Needs Another Staycation”

Digging the Staycation

I was right about the allergy thing. Woke up congested and feeling like crud. Didn’t get lunch prepared but Brad brought me the chopped steak plate from Culver’s on his way home from the farm after church. He had a hamburger and their delicious fries. We’ll probably have left-over tuna casserole for dinner later thisContinue reading “Digging the Staycation”

Productive Shopping Trip

I’ve needed a decent desk in my studio/workroom for years and today was the day to buy one. Furniture Row has a Labor Day Sale and we saved $100 on the cost of their Hartford Writing Desk. I’ve been making do with a portable plastic table with plastic shelves for far too long. The tableContinue reading “Productive Shopping Trip”

Getting Back To Normal

In most cases when I am stressed it helps to work on my knitting. That hasn’t been the case lately so everything got put on hold until a couple of days ago. I’m making progress on the green socks and I’m almost finished with the gusset increases. As usual, I ended up separating the socksContinue reading “Getting Back To Normal”

So Much For A Winter Storm

We’ve had a little moisture, not much. It’s above freezing now. I guess most of the winter storm went north of us. All in all, it’s been a bit of a blah day here. I’ve finished the last dishcloth and put it in the drawer with the rest of them. That’s eighteen new washcloths forContinue reading “So Much For A Winter Storm”

There Is No Local News Anymore

Rant alert! I used to watch the top local news station in our area, KXII, until they went all ‘woke’ with propagating the Left’s lies about Jan 6, 2021. So, I switched my browser homepage to the other local station, KTEN, until they came up with this nonsense: “Fact Check: The various flavors of dishonestyContinue reading “There Is No Local News Anymore”
