It’s 65°, cloudy, humid with a light breeze. The grass is getting taller by the day, all of the trees are budding out, even the Ash trees and the pollen is everywhere. We are both battling sinus/allergy crud. I just made a trip to the pharmacy to pick up something for Brad so he doesn’tContinue reading “It’s Spring In Texas”

Clear, Sunny Weekend
It’s been a gorgeous day, sunny and breezy, 70° all afternoon. The day started out very foggy but by 10 am it was clear and sunny. It’s almost 6:30 pm now and we still have the house open enjoying the fresh air and sounds from a perfect spring day. We decided to dip into ourContinue reading “Clear, Sunny Weekend”
You Are Going In Time-Out!
There is something different about this photo compared to the one in my last post. I frogged about half of what I had knitted with the cranberry red yarn when I found two dropped stitches, side by side. I noticed a couple of loose stitches, turned it over and voilá! There went over an inchContinue reading “You Are Going In Time-Out!”
The weather has been cool but has warmed up into the high 70’s today. I’ve been meaning to start a pot of soup so that’s what I just finished. It’s simmering on the stove. I browned a pound of ground beef, sliced some turkey sausage, added chopped red onion, left-over corn, a can of blackContinue reading “Soup’s On!”
Been A Slow Day
I finally got started on the semi-solid cranberry red yarn. And looking at this photo I can see that the last colorway that had a knot in it about halfway through the ball of yarn is clearly from two separate batches of yarn. Not that it matters since this is a scrap yarn cowl anyway.Continue reading “Been A Slow Day”
Spring Is Almost Here
March 20 is the first day of Spring and things are greening up around here. Now that the last pine tree is down the iris get more sunlight. I still need to divide those plants and I’d like to move some of them to the other side of the house in a new flower bed.Continue reading “Spring Is Almost Here”
I started the next colorway on the cowl and our electricians came out today and located the problem with the breaker box in the garage. It’s nothing that can’t be fixed fairly easily, basically connecting it to the main breaker box on the side of the house the way it should have been done whenContinue reading “Productive Day”
Storm Hit, Generac Running!
Today 12 yr old Joshua and I had a day together. We stopped at Best Buy and found some movies. I found the complete boxed set, entire series of Magnum PI, the original series, for Audrey. He picked out two movies, one is a newer Spiderman movie that his sister has been waiting for andContinue reading “Storm Hit, Generac Running!”
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!”
After our chiropractic visit this afternoon…we’ve switched to afternoons instead of mornings…we stopped at our local Home Depot for a couple of things. We found what we need to replace the old line on the clothesline poles and we decided on a deep freeze for the garage. We found a 20 cu ft Frigidaire thatContinue reading “Productive Day”
