December Is Here

It’s the third day of December. For some reason it doesn’t seem like December to me but I’ll probably catch up with the rest of the world at some point. It’s a gorgeous morning here. The sun will be cresting the top of the trees soon and it will be partly cloudy and in theContinue reading “December Is Here”

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”

Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks

This photo is a reminder of what I can do when I put my mind, and hands, to it. All of my 4 ounce bobbins ready to ply. I really enjoyed that summer. I can do it again as long as I take care of myself and stay on top of things. Age really isContinue reading “Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks”

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…”

Happy Birthday Jacob

Our grandson, Jacob, is nine years old today. That doesn’t seem possible. We’ll have him out for the day soon, maybe take him to Chick Fil A for lunch. He was used to being the youngest until his baby brother arrived nearly two years ago. Now he gets to be a big brother to Gabriel.Continue reading “Happy Birthday Jacob”

Socks And More Socks

I finally finished this pair of socks around 4 pm today and put them in to soak in Eucalan. They are drying on the sock blockers and will be added to my sock drawer when dry. This is the pair I’m enjoying working on at the moment, another skein of Jo Dee’s BFL/Nylon base andContinue reading “Socks And More Socks”

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!”

Feeling Sad

Had a good day with Joshua yesterday. When we were coming out to the house after running an errand in town I thought there were a lot of brown needles on the last remaining pine tree but the sun was in my eyes and it was difficult to tell much. When I was returning homeContinue reading “Feeling Sad”

A Date With My Grandson

Today is my day to spend with eleven year old Joshua who it seems is in need of a grandma fix. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do today. He is a joy to be around and we have plenty to do and I’m sure he’d like to pick out a favorite dvd fromContinue reading “A Date With My Grandson”
