I’ve been cleaning and re-arranging things in the kitchen and it’s time to put my feet up. I’ve done two loads of laundry as well. I moved the juicer and food processor off of the counter to the left of the kitchen range to the built-in counter top in the dining room giving us roomContinue reading “Time For A Breather”

I had thought to be finished with this plying project by now but it seems I’ve been overdoing the spinning thing lately, requiring a second visit to the chiropractor this week due to muscle spasms in my upper back. So today will be a ‘rest in the recliner and knit’ day instead of sitting atContinue reading “Recalculating…”
Fiber Inventory Is Finished
Stick a fork in me, turn me over, I’m done! My fiber stash consists of 135 lbs of wool, alpaca, bison, camel down, cashmere, silk, raime, flax and cotton. Most of the wool and wool blends are in the form of combed top. I have cotton sliver and cotton lint, line flax and tow flax,Continue reading “Fiber Inventory Is Finished”
It’s 42° and raining this morning. The temps will remain in the 40’s most of the day and begin to drop into the mid 30’s later this afternoon, staying above freezing as the snow moves in. Our weather guy says not to let the above freezing temps lull us and to stay home if possibleContinue reading “Winter Storm”
On those mornings that I don’t wake up before sunrise it’s nice to open the blinds to see the sun shining brightly. I was on my feet quite a bit yesterday and busy all day so I slept like the proverbial log last night. The mattress is very comfortable, but when I sleep in theContinue reading “Hello, Sunshine!”
Late Night, Busy Morning
We’ve been busy this morning and I’m finally sitting down to the laptop. The house is clean, and open to the fresh air and sunshine. It’s 70° with a light breeze and low humidity. We both had long naps yesterday afternoon but still slept all night. It’s nearly noon and we had a late breakfast.Continue reading “Late Night, Busy Morning”
The sun won’t be up for another half an hour, it’s just above freezing now and will be in the 40’s and 50’s today, but it’s a tad frosty out there right now. I found this photo that I took in January a few years ago, looking out the garage door window, that fits myContinue reading “Frosty Morning”
About Those Wooden Knitting Needles…
They are pretty, aren’t they? I kept thinking about what I mentioned before about knitting a scarf using a pair of these. I cast on with a fine yarn in a cotton/acrylic blend that had a bit of a mohair look to it. Yeah. That isn’t going to work. My hands don’t like the yarnContinue reading “About Those Wooden Knitting Needles…”
Good Morning Monday!
By 8 am the sun was creeping over the tops of the trees, frost on the ground started to disappear, blue skies and big fluffy clouds floating by. Gorgeous Monday morning. I’m looking forward to our morning walk shortly. It’s already 50° at 10 am so we might be able to have the front doorContinue reading “Good Morning Monday!”
Oh, What An Interesting Morning!
When I took my cell phone off the charger and turned it on this morning I had a text from my credit card company questioning a transaction. Turns out there were five transactions and one that didn’t go through because I flagged the charges on my account. No, I did not make purchases at aContinue reading “Oh, What An Interesting Morning!”
