Another Project Almost Finished

I had hoped to have finished the cowl by this evening, but I took most of the day off from knitting for the sake of my joints. I remembered the bottle of ibuprofen and took a dose of it a little while ago and then picked back up and started the last section of theContinue reading “Another Project Almost Finished”

Progress!

Leaves are falling, it’s damp and drizzly. Cooler weather on the way. Our foundation guys were here and took care of leveling the floor in no time at all yesterday morning. I was in town running errands and seeing the chiropractor and as I was leaving his office Brad texted me to let me knowContinue reading “Progress!”

Grandma And Grandad Go To The Vet!

These are our daughter’s sweet girls. Hava on the left, Magen on the right. They are eight months old and doing well. Magen weighs seven pounds less than Hava but I think Hava has had a growth spurt and Magen will soon catch up to her. They don’t have to go back until next AugustContinue reading “Grandma And Grandad Go To The Vet!”

Stocking Up At The Farm

Grover and his ladies are well stocked with range cubes. Brad picked up and delivered a ton of them, forty bags, yesterday afternoon. We are still waiting to hear more on the hay front, but I’m hopeful. Audrey still has three big round bales of hay left from last year and will need to beginContinue reading “Stocking Up At The Farm”

I’m ‘This’ Close…

I’ve enjoyed the past couple of days getting things done around the house, didn’t think to sit down at the computer and post anything until now. Just got home from visiting my chiropractor and made the mistake of picking up ‘a few things’ at the local Walmart. In person. It’s official. I’m so close toContinue reading “I’m ‘This’ Close…”

It’s A Guy Thing

The saga of the Little Red Bull continues. The neighbor came over Monday morning to get his bull, but he was nowhere to be seen, ditto Grover. All the cows and calves were up at the barn, but no bulls. The neighbor went to look for his and came back a little later to reportContinue reading “It’s A Guy Thing”

And…The A/C Is Back On!

We enjoyed a couple of days of having the house open and fresh air circulating but it’s back to A/C for awhile. Not surprising. There is a bit of a breeze out there but it’s back to 90° for a bit longer. Brad was gone most of yesterday and I kept busy puttering around theContinue reading “And…The A/C Is Back On!”

Interesting Development

I’m very definitely NOT going to use ribbing on the top of these socks. I gave it a try and it’s too difficult to see the purl stitches. So. Plain stocking stitch it is for the feet on this pair and I’ll just knit a couple of inches of ribbing at the top of theContinue reading “Interesting Development”

Almost Feels Like Autumn

A month from now it will be Autumn and lately it’s like we’re getting a preview of cooler weather. The rain was a nice change and we had more than an inch here. No flash floods, unlike the Dallas area which got hit hard with severe flooding. I could get used to temps in theContinue reading “Almost Feels Like Autumn”

Stash Diving Again

Somewhere in all of this stuff there is a ziplock bag with left-over yarn from my knitted socks. I can see it quite plainly in my mind’s eye but as yet I haven’t managed to unearth the blooming thing! I always keep the left-over yarn in case I need to mend a pair of socksContinue reading “Stash Diving Again”
