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”

Happy Roc Day!

Today is Roc Day, or St. Distaff’s Day. Time to get back to work after the Christmas holiday. I still have an ounce to spin to finish the first bobbin of BFL/Tussah Silk I’ve been working on. I’ll stick to that for the time being instead of ‘sampling’ a different fiber for the fun ofContinue reading “Happy Roc Day!”

Elon Strikes Again, And Again

Yesterday was quite interesting. James O’Keefe, Emerald Robinson, Matt Couch, Mike Lindell and others had their accounts on Twitter restored. Then there was installment #6 of the Twitter Files aimed at the FBI. Fox was losing their collective minds starting with “Elon Musk’s Twitter Massacre” on The Five over Musk suspending ‘journalists’ who were doxxingContinue reading “Elon Strikes Again, And Again”

Friday!

The work week is winding down and the weekend is approaching. Trying to get any shopping done this week has been nuts! Traffic is unbelievable. How there aren’t a string of fatality wrecks is beyond me. One elderly woman parked next to Brad in the grocery store parking lot put her car in gear, trompedContinue reading “Friday!”

Thunderstorms On The Way

It’s 65° and solid overcast this morning. The temperature will begin to drop soon and the storms will be rolling in. There’s been some fog in the area but it doesn’t seem to be very thick where we are. It’s a good day to stay home and knit. Brad is having breakfast with a gameContinue reading “Thunderstorms On The Way”

Another Dreary Day

It’s in the low 50’s, overcast and a bit foggy this morning. All in all, another dreary day. We have errands to run later and it’s supposed to reach the high 60’s with a slight chance of rain but I doubt we’ll get much. We will be picking up a few things today and makingContinue reading “Another Dreary Day”

Bipolar Texas Weather

It was in the low 70’s yesterday, sunny and windy. By bedtime it was 42° and the wind was rattling the window screens. The low was 32° last night and it will stay below 50° today. This will be a great day to stay indoors and work on my knitting. I need to do somethingContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather”

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”

Finally! A Finished Project!

I cast these off the needle last night. The ends are woven in, they’ve been soaked in Eucalan and are on the sock blockers overnight. I plan on wearing them tomorrow. I’ve got quite a bit of ribbing to do on the purple socks… …and I’ve put these socks on separate needles to finish theContinue reading “Finally! A Finished Project!”

November! How Did That Happen?

So, November 1st just snuck right by me yesterday. Here we are with a brand new month and absolutely gorgeous weather to boot! It’s a few minutes after noon on Wednesday, the sun is shining, a lovely breeze is blowing through the house from the open living room window and the front door. It’s 67°Continue reading “November! How Did That Happen?”
