Roast Beef For Sunday

I ordered a pot roast with my grocery order yesterday and put it in the crock pot with new potatoes, carrots, red onion, a cup of water and a cup of red wine after seasoning it with freshly ground sea salt and freshly ground peppercorn blend. I set it on low at 10 pm andContinue reading “Roast Beef For Sunday”

Early Mornings

I’m waking up earlier in the mornings than usual for some reason lately. I like early mornings but I’ve not been much of a morning person most of my life. Maybe that is changing. I like seeing the sun coming up behind the trees when the skies aren’t overcast. We don’t get much of aContinue reading “Early Mornings”

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!”

Another Rainy Day! Yay!

I drove in to pick up a grocery order first thing this morning and stopped by the coffee shop for breakfast croissants on the way home. It was just beginning to drizzle a fine mist when I left for town and it’s still overcast and damp out. We need it. I hope we get aContinue reading “Another Rainy Day! Yay!”

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”

Ready To Weave

I wound the weft off of the larger shuttle and onto the smaller one and I’m ready to work on this band now. It’s a good size loom to use while sitting in the recliner. I woke up all congested and achy this morning but began feeling better as the day wore on, just aContinue reading “Ready To Weave”

The Best Laid Plans…

So, things didn’t go according to plan yesterday. First of all, I intended to have the house open and enjoying fresh air and a nice breeze. Except it was impossible to ignore the awful stench wafting up from the creek…something with mange is prowling around out there. Possibly a scabrous coyote. Nothing, absolutely nothing, isContinue reading “The Best Laid Plans…”

Fall is Finally Here

We woke up to 68° in the house and 58° outside and turned the heat on to get the chill off the house. It’s a gorgeous day, sunny with a light breeze and Brad is headed to the coffee shop for breakfast croissants. We like to do that on Saturday for a treat once inContinue reading “Fall is Finally Here”

Success!

I picked Joshua up at 10 am and we headed to town, talked to the young man at Game Stop and after checking with Audrey it was decided that they just needed a new game console. I was able to replace the Playstation 4 console at the farm with a Playstation 4 Pro, a refurbishedContinue reading “Success!”

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”
