I’ve been cleaning and re-arranging things in the kitchen and it’s time to put my feet up. I’ve done two loads of laundry as well. I moved the juicer and food processor off of the counter to the left of the kitchen range to the built-in counter top in the dining room giving us roomContinue reading “Time For A Breather”

An Early Spring?
I’m wondering if we’re in for an early spring this year. The Redbud tree is in bud but I haven’t checked to see what else may be budding out. The daffodils that got beaten down by the downpour several days ago have perked back up to some extent. It’s 5:30 pm and we have theContinue reading “An Early Spring?”
It’s Adding Up
You are looking at another 48.56 pounds of spinning fiber. I weighed the contents of one basket, no problem. I weighed the other basket including the contents and then weighed the basket and subtracted the difference. Same with the plastic bin. A lot more there than it appeared to me at the outset. The lighterContinue reading “It’s Adding Up”
We are about to say goodbye to January but our chances for icy weather will be around for a bit yet. This photo was taken last February 24th, Brad’s birthday. I half expected to wake up to something similar this morning but we didn’t get the precip that was forecast and it seems to beContinue reading “Goodbye, January”
My Hands Need A Break!
I did it. Both heels are finished and the socks are back on one needle. The rest of it is lace all the way to the top of the sock, but this project is going to go into temporary ‘time-out’ so my hands can recover. I’m not a tight knitter by any means, but sizeContinue reading “My Hands Need A Break!”
Ready, Set, Sew!
My sewing desk is in place, serger and sewing machine ready to use. All my storage boxes fit on the bottom shelf out of the way and I’ve got plenty of space in the drawers for the things I’ll use the most. I won’t need shelves on the wall above the desk after all. IContinue reading “Ready, Set, Sew!”
The Best Laid Plans…
So, things didn’t go according to plan yesterday. First of all, I intended to have the house open and enjoying fresh air and a nice breeze. Except it was impossible to ignore the awful stench wafting up from the creek…something with mange is prowling around out there. Possibly a scabrous coyote. Nothing, absolutely nothing, isContinue reading “The Best Laid Plans…”
Afternoon Coffee Break
Since yesterday was rather stressful I fixed myself a nice cup of coffee in the French press before I got settled in my recliner. It really did the trick and was very easy and quick to prepare. Coffee prepared this way has a richer taste than coffee made in the drip maker. The rest ofContinue reading “Afternoon Coffee Break”
There Goes Another Month
So, here we are. It’s the last day of September. How did that happen? Wow. I’ve been busy and it just sort of snuck up on me. It’s 56° outside this morning and not a breath of air moving around out there. The sun is just clearing the tops of the trees and it looksContinue reading “There Goes Another Month”
Happy Birthday Jacob
Our grandson, Jacob, is nine years old today. That doesn’t seem possible. We’ll have him out for the day soon, maybe take him to Chick Fil A for lunch. He was used to being the youngest until his baby brother arrived nearly two years ago. Now he gets to be a big brother to Gabriel.Continue reading “Happy Birthday Jacob”
