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”

Socks And More Socks

I finally finished this pair of socks around 4 pm today and put them in to soak in Eucalan. They are drying on the sock blockers and will be added to my sock drawer when dry. This is the pair I’m enjoying working on at the moment, another skein of Jo Dee’s BFL/Nylon base andContinue reading “Socks And More Socks”

Success!

I picked Joshua up at 10 am and we headed to town, talked to the young man at Game Stop and after checking with Audrey it was decided that they just needed a new game console. I was able to replace the Playstation 4 console at the farm with a Playstation 4 Pro, a refurbishedContinue reading “Success!”

And…The A/C Is Back On!

We enjoyed a couple of days of having the house open and fresh air circulating but it’s back to A/C for awhile. Not surprising. There is a bit of a breeze out there but it’s back to 90° for a bit longer. Brad was gone most of yesterday and I kept busy puttering around theContinue reading “And…The A/C Is Back On!”

I’m Done Now. Really.

So, Brad asked me earlier if I wanted to get rid of that brown recliner and I thought about it, realized I am not using it. It’s not that comfortable for me because the seat is not firm enough. The chair is now out of the studio and I’ve moved things around yet again! IContinue reading “I’m Done Now. Really.”
