So Close

What is it about the last inch or so of a project that seems to take longer than you think it will? Sigh. I will finish this thing. This afternoon. No more interruptions. What an interesting day it’s been and it’s not even 1 pm yet! First of all Fancy Nancy Pelosi is not seekingContinue reading “So Close”

Almost Feels Like Autumn

A month from now it will be Autumn and lately it’s like we’re getting a preview of cooler weather. The rain was a nice change and we had more than an inch here. No flash floods, unlike the Dallas area which got hit hard with severe flooding. I could get used to temps in theContinue reading “Almost Feels Like Autumn”

Another Birthday

Miss Rachel is 13 today. Holy cow! We have another teenager in the family! We’ll bring her out to spend the day with us very soon. It’s been so blooming hot lately that there isn’t much that we can do outdoors, but we can find something to do inside and enjoy the A/C. We hadContinue reading “Another Birthday”

I’m still working on the ribbing of two pairs of socks and will finish at least one pair before I start anything else. I finished the knitted potholder Sunday afternoon. The lines on either side where I grafted the openings willContinue reading “Another Finished Object”

We Have Eggs!

I hate running out of staples in the kitchen and now that I’ve got two dozen fresh eggs I’m happy! We’ll have some scrambled egg tacos tonight with flour tortillas. The paperback copies I ordered of Dr. Pol’s book came in and I gave Brad one of them to read. I’ll take the other oneContinue reading “We Have Eggs!”

Where Did The Time Go?

This day has flown by and here it is after 11:00 pm! It’s been raining for several hours and we are enjoying the soothing sound of rain on the roof. We haven’t done much today. I made chicken salad for sandwiches for our lunch and Brad drove in to pick up pizza for dinner. He’sContinue reading “Where Did The Time Go?”
