Stash Diving Again

Somewhere in all of this stuff there is a ziplock bag with left-over yarn from my knitted socks. I can see it quite plainly in my mind’s eye but as yet I haven’t managed to unearth the blooming thing! I always keep the left-over yarn in case I need to mend a pair of socksContinue reading “Stash Diving Again”

Hump Day is Here

Hump Day for most folks means the work week is half over. Even though I haven’t worked outside the home in decades I have to admit that Wednesday is a reminder that the weekend is on the way. As a spinner and fiber enthusiast it reminds me of some yummy fiber in my stash. Namely,Continue reading “Hump Day is Here”

Wind, Allergies, And A Change of Plans

I am so done with wind. There is so much stuff in the air and Brad and I both are battling allergies. Our M.D. called in a steroid dose pack for each of us to stop this crud before it gets worse. Neither of us can afford to end up with respiratory infections. I hadContinue reading “Wind, Allergies, And A Change of Plans”

Good Day For Soup

It was cool and windy today so the potato soup was a big hit. I washed and cubed two big baking potatoes, skins on, added chopped celery and red onion and a quart and a half of homemade chicken broth, sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, and a dash of ground chipotle chili pepper. ItContinue reading “Good Day For Soup”

Where Did March Go?

I happened to glance at the calendar on the wall in the living room and realized…we are almost out of month again. Wow. There goes March! Easter Sunday will arrive before we know it. I think it’s on April 17th this year. It was pretty windy again today so I stayed in the house exceptContinue reading “Where Did March Go?”

Battle Won. Frustration Over.

Finished. 7 1/2″ square, 1/2″ thick. I’ll launder it with some of my knitted washcloths but it won’t go in the dryer, I’ll smooth it flat and let it dry. It’s very elastic and plenty thick to prevent burns. Kitchener stitch is a bear using cotton yarn. The bloomin’ stuff just won’t slide through theContinue reading “Battle Won. Frustration Over.”

Good Morning, Sunshine

For the second morning in a row I am up earlier than usual, before 7:00 am this time. I’ve been making sure I get my liquid magnesium drops in water at bedtime along with melatonin and it seems to be making a difference. Brad got up about forty-five minutes after I did. We’ve had coffeeContinue reading “Good Morning, Sunshine”

Happy Texas Independence Day, Ya’ll

It’s a gorgeous, sunny morning in NE Texas. The forecast was for the low 40’s…we woke up to 35°…had a hunch that it would be best to put the heat pump on emergency before going to bed. Turns out we were right! I didn’t sleep well last night, gave up about 3 am and wentContinue reading “Happy Texas Independence Day, Ya’ll”
