The Ice Is Gone

The sun is shining, no breeze to speak of and it’s 41° in our little corner of Texas. Nice to see the sun again. Brad is off to pick up a couple of pounds of chopped brisket, BBQ sauce and sides. We’ll have some for lunch and divide the rest of the brisket and freezeContinue reading “The Ice Is Gone”

Wrong Day!

I’ve been pretty busy lately, getting a lot done around the house and making progress with my knitting and spinning, and somehow I lost track of what day of the week it is. I woke up thinking it was Saturday for some reason. Later, while we were having breakfast it came to me why. OurContinue reading “Wrong Day!”

6th Day of Christmas

The clouds have cleared, the sun is out, it’s 51° and looks to be a gorgeous day. We had a young man out yesterday to talk about getting rid of a pile of mulch and more than a dozen large sections of pine tree trunks that have been piled on the north side of ourContinue reading “6th Day of Christmas”

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!”

Good Morning!

Wow. I can’t believe I slept until 8 am! Best night’s sleep I’ve had in ages. I woke up dreaming about coffee. The last time that happened Brad was up before me and…was brewing coffee! It’s another gray, overcast day outside and 55°. We have the A/C on because the house was stuffy when weContinue reading “Good Morning!”

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”

Late Start To Our Day

We were winding down and getting ready for bed later than usual last night and Brad came in to tell me goodnight when I pointed out that a cable channel we rarely watch had reruns of West Wing playing. So, we finished the episode that had just started and ended up watching another episode andContinue reading “Late Start To Our Day”

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.”
