So Close

What is it about the last inch or so of a project that seems to take longer than you think it will? Sigh. I will finish this thing. This afternoon. No more interruptions. What an interesting day it’s been and it’s not even 1 pm yet! First of all Fancy Nancy Pelosi is not seekingContinue reading “So Close”

What a Gorgeous Day!

It was 37° this morning at 8 am, mostly clear and no breeze to speak of. It’s 53° now and it’s nearly 5 pm. Clear, no breeze. Thankfully. Brad and I just took a stroll out to the road to see if our trash got picked up. It did. They forgot it earlier and IContinue reading “What a Gorgeous Day!”

It’s A Beautiful Morning

It’s 61° outside, partly cloudy, with a light breeze. The grass is greening up and the ground is still very squishy! We have more rain coming later this week so that is good news. We’ve not had a lot of runoff as most of the rain has been slow and steady and has been soakingContinue reading “It’s A Beautiful Morning”

There Goes Another Month

So, here we are. It’s the last day of September. How did that happen? Wow. I’ve been busy and it just sort of snuck up on me. It’s 56° outside this morning and not a breath of air moving around out there. The sun is just clearing the tops of the trees and it looksContinue reading “There Goes Another Month”

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…”

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”

Lost Track of Time

I’ve been doing a little more work in my studio the past several days, can’t believe it’s been three days since I wrote something. I reversed the position of the yarn winder and the swift so it’s more comfortable when I wind off a skein of yarn. I can leave the table out away fromContinue reading “Lost Track of Time”

And…The A/C Is Back On!

We enjoyed a couple of days of having the house open and fresh air circulating but it’s back to A/C for awhile. Not surprising. There is a bit of a breeze out there but it’s back to 90° for a bit longer. Brad was gone most of yesterday and I kept busy puttering around theContinue reading “And…The A/C Is Back On!”

There Went Another Month!

I got busy yesterday and totally forgot to post something. Today will be even busier because I got behind with the laundry while doing other things around the house, including some excavations in my studio. It’s amazing what I find lurking in those big plastic bins now that everything is all sorted and organized…and IContinue reading “There Went Another Month!”

Ah! Rain! Welcome Rain!

The storms last night split and went north and south of us and I don’t believe we got a single drop! It happens from time to time and we really need the rain. It started clouding up this morning and a little while ago I looked out and…it was raining! A nice, slow, steady rain.Continue reading “Ah! Rain! Welcome Rain!”
