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”

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”

Restarting A UFO

In the fiber world a UFO is an Un Finished Object, or unfinished project. This cowl has been on the needle since last Fall when I started it, set it aside, and promptly forgot about it. It’s an easy knit, ninety stitches on a 16″ size 4 needle using fingering yarn. It’s a perfect projectContinue reading “Restarting A UFO”

Digging the Staycation

I was right about the allergy thing. Woke up congested and feeling like crud. Didn’t get lunch prepared but Brad brought me the chopped steak plate from Culver’s on his way home from the farm after church. He had a hamburger and their delicious fries. We’ll probably have left-over tuna casserole for dinner later thisContinue reading “Digging the Staycation”

We’ve both had about all the housecleaning we, or our sinuses, can stand for the time being so we’re taking the weekend off from Fall Cleaning. I’m on the verge of a sinus/ear infection and taking homeopathics to keep it under control. Time to enjoy what we’ve accomplished around the house and get some restContinue reading “Time For A Staycation”

Productive Shopping Trip

I’ve needed a decent desk in my studio/workroom for years and today was the day to buy one. Furniture Row has a Labor Day Sale and we saved $100 on the cost of their Hartford Writing Desk. I’ve been making do with a portable plastic table with plastic shelves for far too long. The tableContinue reading “Productive Shopping Trip”

Almost Feels Like Autumn

A month from now it will be Autumn and lately it’s like we’re getting a preview of cooler weather. The rain was a nice change and we had more than an inch here. No flash floods, unlike the Dallas area which got hit hard with severe flooding. I could get used to temps in theContinue reading “Almost Feels Like Autumn”
