2nd Day of Christmas

I pray your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day events were spent with family and friends, making memories and reliving those from the past, and remembering that Christ is the Reason for the Season. This 2nd Day of Christmas I am focusing on finishing a project and thanking God for the many blessings He has bestowedContinue reading “2nd Day of Christmas”

Friday!

The work week is winding down and the weekend is approaching. Trying to get any shopping done this week has been nuts! Traffic is unbelievable. How there aren’t a string of fatality wrecks is beyond me. One elderly woman parked next to Brad in the grocery store parking lot put her car in gear, trompedContinue reading “Friday!”

Where Did My Day Go?

Wow. We got up at a reasonable hour and set about getting things done around the house, meals, chores, etc. The next thing I know it’s 7 pm in the evening and I haven’t posted a thing! I finally remembered which yarn I used for the test knit. It’s one of Jo Dee’s Fishknit’s Yarns,Continue reading “Where Did My Day Go?”

Monday Was Interesting

By the end of the day there were several interesting stories going around in the news: Samuel Bankman-Fried was arrested in The Bahamas at the request of the US Government; Sam Binton was fired from the Dept. of Energy for felony theft of luggage; Elon dropped his 5th set of Twitter Files, launched Twitter BlueContinue reading “Monday Was Interesting”

Thunderstorms On The Way

It’s 65° and solid overcast this morning. The temperature will begin to drop soon and the storms will be rolling in. There’s been some fog in the area but it doesn’t seem to be very thick where we are. It’s a good day to stay home and knit. Brad is having breakfast with a gameContinue reading “Thunderstorms On The Way”

A Good Day For Cooking

It got up to 73° by 2:30 pm yesterday afternoon and I had the house open while Brad was gone to his appointment. He insisted that there was no need for me to go with him since he would be waiting for a bit until he was ready to leave. In the end it didn’tContinue reading “A Good Day For Cooking”

Early Mornings

I’m waking up earlier in the mornings than usual for some reason lately. I like early mornings but I’ve not been much of a morning person most of my life. Maybe that is changing. I like seeing the sun coming up behind the trees when the skies aren’t overcast. We don’t get much of aContinue reading “Early Mornings”

Another Cowl And A Load Of Hay

I decided to cast on for another Fishknits Yarn mini skein cowl. I love these colors! I’ve got ninety stitches on a 16″ size 4 needle and nothing but plain knitting. I splice the ends of the yarn when I come to them, I knotted them together when winding them into one cake of yarn.Continue reading “Another Cowl And A Load Of Hay”

Bipolar Texas Weather

It was in the low 70’s yesterday, sunny and windy. By bedtime it was 42° and the wind was rattling the window screens. The low was 32° last night and it will stay below 50° today. This will be a great day to stay indoors and work on my knitting. I need to do somethingContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather”
