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”

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”

Feeling Sad

Had a good day with Joshua yesterday. When we were coming out to the house after running an errand in town I thought there were a lot of brown needles on the last remaining pine tree but the sun was in my eyes and it was difficult to tell much. When I was returning homeContinue reading “Feeling Sad”

A Date With My Grandson

Today is my day to spend with eleven year old Joshua who it seems is in need of a grandma fix. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do today. He is a joy to be around and we have plenty to do and I’m sure he’d like to pick out a favorite dvd fromContinue reading “A Date With My Grandson”

Digging the Staycation

I was right about the allergy thing. Woke up congested and feeling like crud. Didn’t get lunch prepared but Brad brought me the chopped steak plate from Culver’s on his way home from the farm after church. He had a hamburger and their delicious fries. We’ll probably have left-over tuna casserole for dinner later thisContinue reading “Digging the Staycation”

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”

The Morning After

I got a LOT done yesterday and my aging body is telling me about it. I don’t have to look around the house at the lack of dust and clutter and piles of laundry to know what I accomplished. I saved one last load of laundry for this morning so I could wash the clothesContinue reading “The Morning After”

There Went Another Month!

I got busy yesterday and totally forgot to post something. Today will be even busier because I got behind with the laundry while doing other things around the house, including some excavations in my studio. It’s amazing what I find lurking in those big plastic bins now that everything is all sorted and organized…and IContinue reading “There Went Another Month!”

Ah! Rain! Welcome Rain!

The storms last night split and went north and south of us and I don’t believe we got a single drop! It happens from time to time and we really need the rain. It started clouding up this morning and a little while ago I looked out and…it was raining! A nice, slow, steady rain.Continue reading “Ah! Rain! Welcome Rain!”
