The Simple Things In Life

I ended my day yesterday evening with two fingers of The Glenlivet on the rocks. It’s a simple pleasure that I indulge in from time to time. I prefer the 12 yr old single malt but this particular bottle is impossible to find anymore. Brad happened to stumble onto this at a local liquor store…Continue reading “The Simple Things In Life”

Done. Done. And Done.

Done! The beginning is now grafted to the ending and it needs a soak in Eucalan and then blocked. I have another set of six mini skeins for another cowl and I might as well cast that on to keep on hand for simple, on-the-go knitting. I enjoyed this project a lot and look forwardContinue reading “Done. Done. And Done.”

Another Glorious Day

It’s 10 am and the sky is overcast. We are waiting for the rain to begin, so yes! It’s another glorious day! The drought is finally over and we have the potential for several inches of rain over the next few days. Neither Brad nor I have any errands to run, nothing to do awayContinue reading “Another Glorious Day”

June 6th, 1944: 78 Years Ago Today

Seventy-eight years ago today, ten years, four months, and ten days before I was born, the Allies landed at Normandy in France during WWII. Think about that. Only ten years after the invasion, I was born. Not that long in the big scheme of things, folks. It’s been twenty-one years since September 11, 2001. MyContinue reading “June 6th, 1944: 78 Years Ago Today”

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!”

Two Down, One to Go

I’ve been busy knitting the past few days and managed to finish the second kitchen hand towel in the set of three. It’s easy to lose track of the pattern if I don’t pay attention and more than once I’ve gotten engrossed in something on TV and had to backtrack and correct my mistake. IContinue reading “Two Down, One to Go”

Another Finished Project

I finished the knitted potholder and it measures 8″ along each side. I just took it out of the washer and laid it out to dry. I’ll remeasure after it’s dry. I’m happy with the size of it so far and will make another one to go with it after I finish the crocheted versionContinue reading “Another Finished Project”

Bipolar Texas Weather. Again.

Friday, December 3rd. It’s in the mid 60’s, will be in the high 70’s later this afternoon, and it’s trying to rain. In other words, typical NE Texas weather. Somewhere a front is pushing all the warm air ahead of it and we can count on cold weather following it. In the meantime our viewContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather. Again.”

Good Morning, Monday!

Temps were supposed to be in the mid 40’s last night. Ahem. Right. Once again, we set the heat pump on regular heat setting and go to bed only to wake up and discover it’s 35°…after the sun is up! I don’t like the idea of the system struggling during the night when we couldContinue reading “Good Morning, Monday!”
