9th Day of Christmas

We started the year off with 70°, sunny and the house open to a light breeze. Even for Texas this is unusual weather. It’s cloudy today, in the low 60’s with thunderstorms on the way. The temps will stay in the 60’s and 70’s for the next couple of days. I picked out a fewContinue reading “9th Day of Christmas”

8th Day of Christmas and A Happy New Year

Here we are! Beginning a new year. A fresh start. Resolutions. New beginnings. I like the idea of making resolutions and aiming for improvements in my life. What better time than the beginning of a new year? I’ve never kept a written diary although I’ve tried more than once in my younger years. Blogging hasContinue reading “8th Day of Christmas and A Happy New Year”

Late Post

It’s nearly 5:45 pm and it’s been a long, dreary day. Brad is back at his church for their Christmas program and I’m contemplating a hot cup of coffee. The temperature finally dropped back to a more normal level for this time of the year, we woke up to a cool house and switched fromContinue reading “Late Post”

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!”

Overcoming A Case Of The Blahs

The weather is remaining warm and damp and has triggered a case of the blahs. It’s one of those times I wish Texas would pick a season and stick with it but that ain’t gonna happen so I might as well make the best of it of puttering around in my studio/workroom. I’m thinking aheadContinue reading “Overcoming A Case Of The Blahs”

December Is Here

It’s the third day of December. For some reason it doesn’t seem like December to me but I’ll probably catch up with the rest of the world at some point. It’s a gorgeous morning here. The sun will be cresting the top of the trees soon and it will be partly cloudy and in theContinue reading “December Is Here”

Bipolar Texas Weather

It was in the low 70’s yesterday, sunny and windy. By bedtime it was 42° and the wind was rattling the window screens. The low was 32° last night and it will stay below 50° today. This will be a great day to stay indoors and work on my knitting. I need to do somethingContinue reading “Bipolar Texas Weather”

Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks

This photo is a reminder of what I can do when I put my mind, and hands, to it. All of my 4 ounce bobbins ready to ply. I really enjoyed that summer. I can do it again as long as I take care of myself and stay on top of things. Age really isContinue reading “Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks”

A Little Taste Of Winter

If we had a fireplace I’d be camped out in front of it, coffee and knitting at hand. There is nothing particularly cozy about central heating but there are no ashes to shovel and there is none of that left-over smoke odor lingering for days on end either. So we’ll just trudge along with ourContinue reading “A Little Taste Of Winter”
