It’s Monday…

Slept like the dead last night, struggled to get moving this morning. Brad made coffee and then headed to the farm to pick up the grandsons for a visit. He returned with smoothies and breakfast cookies for the two of them and breakfast croissants for the two of us. He is now making a secondContinue reading “It’s Monday…”

June 6th, 1944: 78 Years Ago Today

Seventy-eight years ago today, ten years, four months, and ten days before I was born, the Allies landed at Normandy in France during WWII. Think about that. Only ten years after the invasion, I was born. Not that long in the big scheme of things, folks. It’s been twenty-one years since September 11, 2001. MyContinue reading “June 6th, 1944: 78 Years Ago Today”

Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…

This is my coned cotton stash…about two dozen cones on one shelf. This is the last order of cotton yarn I got in the mail from Walmart a couple of weeks ago. So, I really hadn’t planned on ordering more yarn. And, yet I did. It’s at the post office and I can pick itContinue reading “Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…”

We Have Eggs!

I hate running out of staples in the kitchen and now that I’ve got two dozen fresh eggs I’m happy! We’ll have some scrambled egg tacos tonight with flour tortillas. The paperback copies I ordered of Dr. Pol’s book came in and I gave Brad one of them to read. I’ll take the other oneContinue reading “We Have Eggs!”

Running Errands and Losing My Mind

We had errands to run this morning including a trip to the local Walmart. We’ve mostly been ordering online and then picking up our order but I thought it would be a good idea to get some exercise and do our shopping in person this time. Audrey needed a few things as well so weContinue reading “Running Errands and Losing My Mind”

Where Did The Time Go?

This day has flown by and here it is after 11:00 pm! It’s been raining for several hours and we are enjoying the soothing sound of rain on the roof. We haven’t done much today. I made chicken salad for sandwiches for our lunch and Brad drove in to pick up pizza for dinner. He’sContinue reading “Where Did The Time Go?”

Project Finished

The last hand towel is finished. It seems I missed my row count on the blue one and the tab at the top is a few rows shorter than on the other two. It’s not enough of a problem to take it out and redo it. The blue yarn is a tad thinner than theContinue reading “Project Finished”

Back to Spring Weather

We’ve had a front come through our area in NE Texas and it’s now in the 60’s after being in the 90’s for over a week. Tonight it will be in the mid 50’s. Now that’s more like it! Brad made a run to town for take away from Frank & Lola’s Bohemian Tacos. TheirContinue reading “Back to Spring Weather”

Aftermath of the Storm

We had some severe weather last night and the storm warning lasted until 1:00 am. There were folks without power, tree limbs down, hail damage all around us but we weathered it well. I took this photo a couple of hours before the storm hit, trying to get a good shot of the setting sunContinue reading “Aftermath of the Storm”
