Not Much Going On

The snow is gone, it’s still above freezing but will dip down below 30° tonight. I’ve spent the day in the recliner with a case of the sniffles and a bit of a cough from sinus drainage. Typical winter stuff in our area when the weather waffles back and forth this time of year. GladContinue reading “Not Much Going On”

Sunshine And Frost

The sun is over the tops of the trees, the frost is sparkling on the grass. It dipped into the mid 20’s during the night and is up to 28° at 8:30 am. We are back to more seasonable January weather with a chance of light rain in the morning and possible rain/snow mix laterContinue reading “Sunshine And Frost”

12th Day of Christmas

Happy 12th Day of Christmas! It’s 7:30 am and the sky is getting lighter. The sun will be peeking through the trees very soon. It’s 31° with no breeze this morning. We will start the coffee and decide about breakfast shortly. I’m leaning toward some hot cereal to go with our morning coffee. Maybe aContinue reading “12th Day of Christmas”

Cold And Foggy

I woke up before 8 am, rested from a good night’s sleep and a day of doing pretty much nothing yesterday. It’s 28° outside and foggy. It’s also our youngest grandson’s birthday. He is two years old today. We need to pick up a load of cattle feed to take to the farm later thisContinue reading “Cold And Foggy”

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!”

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”

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”
