It’s Monday…

Slept like the dead last night, struggled to get moving this morning. Brad made coffee and then headed to the farm to pick up the grandsons for a visit. He returned with smoothies and breakfast cookies for the two of them and breakfast croissants for the two of us. He is now making a secondContinue reading “It’s Monday…”

The Struggle Is Real

So, I have a pair of socks on the needle and the Prayer Shawl to work on as well. But. This yarn has been calling my name for days. That ball of yarn is a half pound of 2-ply, hand-spun, mystery wool. I bought a full pound of the fiber from a little shop inContinue reading “The Struggle Is Real”

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!”

Blocked, Ready to Wear

This is a very comfy shawl, soft and drapes well. It’s great to have a finished project out of my own hand-spun yarn. I’m ready for cooler fall weather when it arrives. In the meantime, it’s 100° outside and 73° in the house. We have the ceiling fans running so it’s nice and cool inside.Continue reading “Blocked, Ready to Wear”

It’s A Beautiful Morning!

It’s 81° and mostly sunny this morning. According to the weather dude we should miss the triple digit temps today. I ran water thru the new coffee maker to make sure it’s clean inside then Brad prepped it for a full pot of coffee before heading to town to pick up breakfast croissants for theContinue reading “It’s A Beautiful Morning!”

Only Eighty Rows…

I’m finished with the green yarn and I have eighty rows left of the purple before I need to wind off some of the newly dyed yarn for the border. So far so good and I’m very happy with this project. It was 102° outside this afternoon but a comfortable 74° in the house. WeContinue reading “Only Eighty Rows…”

Stash Diving Again

Somewhere in all of this stuff there is a ziplock bag with left-over yarn from my knitted socks. I can see it quite plainly in my mind’s eye but as yet I haven’t managed to unearth the blooming thing! I always keep the left-over yarn in case I need to mend a pair of socksContinue reading “Stash Diving Again”

Making Progress On A Couple of Fronts

I finished these last night and I’m wearing them today. Very comfy. It’s a bit humid here today so we are enjoying being indoors with the A/C running. I haven’t looked to see if we have more rain coming our way or not but it wouldn’t surprise me. I went in for PT on myContinue reading “Making Progress On A Couple of Fronts”

Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…

This is my coned cotton stash…about two dozen cones on one shelf. This is the last order of cotton yarn I got in the mail from Walmart a couple of weeks ago. So, I really hadn’t planned on ordering more yarn. And, yet I did. It’s at the post office and I can pick itContinue reading “Like I Need More Cotton Yarn…”

It Was A Dark And Stormy Night…

We were both enjoying a good night’s sleep when CRASH! BOOM! CRACK! The whole house shook from a lightening strike east of us. Yep. That got our attention. And was repeated at irregular intervals for over an hour. Fortunately we never lost power. Needless to say, we had a late morning. The sky is partlyContinue reading “It Was A Dark And Stormy Night…”
