Time For A Breather

I’ve been cleaning and re-arranging things in the kitchen and it’s time to put my feet up. I’ve done two loads of laundry as well. I moved the juicer and food processor off of the counter to the left of the kitchen range to the built-in counter top in the dining room giving us roomContinue reading “Time For A Breather”

Hello March!

It’s an overcast day with a light drizzle now and then. I had the front door open for a bit but the humidity convinced me to close the house and turn on the A/C. It’s been in the 60’s today and storms are headed our way either late tonight or early in the morning soContinue reading “Hello March!”

Is It Spring Already?

We’ve been puttering around the house since we got up, not paying attention to the weather outside except to notice the sunshine and breeze blowing. Brad opened the front door a few minutes ago to discover it’s 74° out there! We’ve got the front door and several windows open to air out the house, whichContinue reading “Is It Spring Already?”

Plying Away The Afternoon

Both bobbins are finished… I’ve swapped out my flyers… My singles are consistent… I have a balanced plying twist. It’s at this point I needed a short break when my cranky ankle started ‘popping’ when I treadled the wheel. Ewwww! I hate that! Time to grab the CBD roll on gel and get it calmedContinue reading “Plying Away The Afternoon”

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”

Keeping Busy

I’ve got my winding station set up to wind off two skeins of yarn. Brad needs new socks and it takes more than one skein of fingering yarn for his size 13 feet so I am doing contrasting toes, heels and cuffs. I’ll use the lighter yarn on the swift for the main color andContinue reading “Keeping Busy”

11th Day of Christmas

Getting close to the end of the 12 Days of Christmas! Epiphany is January 6th and Roc Day will be January 7th and I’ll get back to spinning. In the meantime… B.J. is hard at work loading the huge pine logs into a trailer to be hauled off. Well, actually…he already sent one load offContinue reading “11th Day of Christmas”

4th Day of Christmas

Trying to be upbeat today. It’s not working very well, but I’m focusing on the fact that this is the 4th Day of Christmas. It isn’t over yet, just remember our blessings! Bottom line, not enough sleep. Added to the fact that the electric coop guys have been out at the road for a coupleContinue reading “4th 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”

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?”
