Late Start To Our Day

We were winding down and getting ready for bed later than usual last night and Brad came in to tell me goodnight when I pointed out that a cable channel we rarely watch had reruns of West Wing playing. So, we finished the episode that had just started and ended up watching another episode andContinue reading “Late Start To Our Day”

It Pays To Tidy Up

I was emptying out a basket yesterday evening, removing a couple of ziplock bags with fiber and bobbins in them, and found this little bag in the bottom of the basket. I can’t remember where the bag came from, if I bought it or it was a gift…been too long…but as soon as I sawContinue reading “It Pays To Tidy Up”

Rearranging. Again.

Now that my studio/workroom is de-cluttered I decided it was time to move the Kromski spinning wheel and the baskets of fiber and spinning wheel accessories out of the bedroom and back where they belong. I still have two wheels in the bedroom but they are more decorative these days. With this arrangement I canContinue reading “Rearranging. Again.”

Still Raining!

The rain has dropped to a misty drizzle for now, still in the low 50’s this morning, with a slight breeze. We pray for it to continue as long as possible so the stock ponds at the farm can begin to fill up. We’ve not much water and very little grass, but there will beContinue reading “Still Raining!”

Rain!

Yesterday evening Brad announced that we had a 100% chance of rain starting sometime during the night and by golly! We have rain. No storms as yet but there is a chance later. Looks like we’ll have hay for the cattle after all. Both of our local sources say they’ve been waiting on rain forContinue reading “Rain!”

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”

A Day Of Rest

Brad is at church with the grandchildren. I’m still battling allergies but I think I’m beginning to win the battle and stay out of the doctor’s office this time. House is clean and tidy, beds made, etc. I’m having yogurt, an English muffin and French press coffee. The Cat Turd mugs are in the dishwasherContinue reading “A Day Of Rest”

October Morning

I managed to get this shot of the sun starting to peek through the trees along the creek before 8 am this morning. The days are getting shorter and I’m looking forward to getting off of daylight saving time. I wish we could just ditch the twice yearly time change altogether and stop the “springContinue reading “October Morning”

Afternoon Coffee Break

Since yesterday was rather stressful I fixed myself a nice cup of coffee in the French press before I got settled in my recliner. It really did the trick and was very easy and quick to prepare. Coffee prepared this way has a richer taste than coffee made in the drip maker. The rest ofContinue reading “Afternoon Coffee Break”

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…”
