Snow, At Last

I stayed home this morning but Brad went on to the chiropractor and picked up the mail and lunch for the two of us. My herb and spice order from Simply Organic arrived. Does this look like $60 worth of herbs and spices to you? Prices are becoming ridiculous but at least these are goodContinue reading “Snow, At Last”

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”

Wrong Day!

I’ve been pretty busy lately, getting a lot done around the house and making progress with my knitting and spinning, and somehow I lost track of what day of the week it is. I woke up thinking it was Saturday for some reason. Later, while we were having breakfast it came to me why. OurContinue reading “Wrong Day!”

Hello, Sunshine!

On those mornings that I don’t wake up before sunrise it’s nice to open the blinds to see the sun shining brightly. I was on my feet quite a bit yesterday and busy all day so I slept like the proverbial log last night. The mattress is very comfortable, but when I sleep in theContinue reading “Hello, Sunshine!”

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”

Soup, At Last

I got the Black Bean Soup started and simmering about 3:30 yesterday afternoon and took it off the burner at 6 pm after enough of the broth had reduced. I froze half of it and put the other half in the fridge. We had a late lunch that was very filling and we only hadContinue reading “Soup, At Last”

Another Frosty Morning

The sun is almost over the tops of the trees, the ground is covered with frost and it’s 33° this morning. A perfect January morning. A perfect Saturday morning. Brad will start the coffee in a few minutes and we’ll have our breakfast and plan the day. He has a couple of errands in townContinue reading “Another Frosty Morning”

One, More, Pair…

I’ve been working on the pair of lacy socks. I love the simple pattern and all, but it’s slow going and my wrists hurt after about an hour of knitting. I’ve added another inch to the cuff but needed a break and I really, really want to work on another pair of simple, stocking stitchContinue reading “One, More, Pair…”

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”
