Granny Needs Another Staycation

I’ve had a blast this week, but I’m about done. Two days back to back shopping with my adorable eleven year old grandson were a treat, but after all the cleaning I’ve done this month, being on my feet so much…I need a long weekend to recoup. I’d do it all again in a heartbeat,Continue reading “Granny Needs Another Staycation”

Lost Track of Time

I’ve been doing a little more work in my studio the past several days, can’t believe it’s been three days since I wrote something. I reversed the position of the yarn winder and the swift so it’s more comfortable when I wind off a skein of yarn. I can leave the table out away fromContinue reading “Lost Track of Time”

Getting Rid of Clutter

I’ve cleared away a LOT of clutter off of the table and shelves. Very soon all this plastic stuff will be gone and I’ll have a nice desk with a couple of shelves mounted on the wall above the desk. I need to go through that plastic storage unit to the left. I could easilyContinue reading “Getting Rid of Clutter”

Blessings of a Mundane Life

There is something satisfying about clean laundry. Fresh sheets on the beds, clean, fluffy towels on the towel racks, drawers and closets full of clean clothes, empty laundry hamper. Ditto a clean kitchen. Dishwasher running, counters wiped down and disinfected, floor swept and mopped. Occasionally over the years I’ve encountered other women who think thatContinue reading “Blessings of a Mundane Life”

What A Difference A Day Makes!

The sun is shining, beautiful fluffy clouds in the sky, grass is greening up, won’t be much longer and we won’t need the A/C running. We were up much earlier than usual this morning. Brad had early appointments and I had errands to run. Got my hair cut. Picked up a couple of things atContinue reading “What A Difference A Day Makes!”

Sock Yarns: What Wears Best

The heel flaps are finished and I’ve started the cuffs which will continue in Clover Leaf Lace. This is the last skein of semi-solid Fishknits Yarn in my stash that isn’t set aside for another project. I have several skeins set aside for socks for Brad that require more than one skein for his sizeContinue reading “Sock Yarns: What Wears Best”

Some Adjustments Necessary

Knitting up one garter ridge on the diagonal side of the throw per pattern ridge for the lace does not allow for enough ‘give’ or stretch so I started over with the edging. Somewhere along the way I noticed that I’d started knitting on the other end of the picked up stitches. Hmmm. Not sureContinue reading “Some Adjustments Necessary”

One Step Closer

It’s 99° and not much of a breeze outside today. The ground is parched and the grass is more brown than green. It’s been over a month since we had any rain and there doesn’t seem to be any headed our way soon. We are closer to being self sufficient with regard to our powerContinue reading “One Step Closer”

We Did It!

The prayers of a faithful people have been answered today on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Roe vs Wade has been overturned. It is now up to the states to decide the question of abortion and at last count there are fourteen states that have outlawed abortion including Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana andContinue reading “We Did It!”
