    Our House (Part Three)

    I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Happy Easter! We're going to DD's tomorrow along with the inlaws and the boys' cousins. I'm taking a black bean and corn salad/dip and guacamole. Down to the last 10 rows on a baby afghan. I think it's time to change patterns now. Lol Have a good evening, friends. ♥♥♥

    Hi Katy! I just checked the forums and saw that you all were missing! I hope it's all okay now.

    Good Morning! The glass company guys are coming this morning to replace the window. They said they've had several calls, but it could have been much worse. The upstairs windows are 6' by 6' and this one is in my sewing room, so I had to do some major rearranging. Lol More storms coming tomorrow evening - oh joy. I have several errands to take care of, so I'm leaving hubby here to direct traffic. Have a good Tuesday, friends.

    Judy ~ The afghan looks just perfect with the initials added! Cindy ~ Stay warm! You must be so ready for spring. I hope the grandkids feel better soon. We went out for lunch and a trip to Lowe's and the grocery store. So exciting around here! Lol

    Good morning, Ladies. 🌞 Once again, the worst of the storms missed us. After seeing pictures of major damage, I am so thankful knowing it could have been us. We have one cracked window upstairs from the hail, but everything else looks okay. The sun is shining and the hummingbirds are at both feeders this morning! Brenda ~ Thank you for the wonderful picture of Zelda. Such a great way to announce the wedding! Mona ~ Thinking of you both and hope things are going okay. I know you're doing a lot of driving along with keeping up with everything else and I hope you can take a little 'me' time, too. Hi Mary Jo! The flower babies are adorable! I love seeing your tables and other projects...you are so talented! (Peggy Sue will always be my favorite, though. ) Judy ~ Beautiful afghan! Love the texture of the cross stitch rows...so pretty. Hi Cindy and the rest of the House, too! I'm working on another blanket stitch baby afghan...and trying to figure out why I'm not tired of the pattern yet.

    'Morning from stormy Texas. Gracie is curled up in the big closet under the stairs and we're ready in case we need to join her! Life really has gotten in the way the last couple of weeks. Lots of appointments and we had the boys last weekend. Looking forward to some crochet time! Have a good Saturday, friends. It's hailing now and I'm headed for our safe place!

    Good morning, House. It's only in the 40's and cloudy. I love this weather because we know what's coming soon enough...never look forward to Texas summers! Judy ~ The afghan is adorable! Love the colors and that pattern is really fun. Hi Mona! We're home today and I've been going non-stop since 6:30. I've decided I deserve a crochet afternoon. Of course I could vacuum... Have a good Monday.

    Hi Mona! Good news about the endoscopy. Will you be able to have the Tuesday appointments close to home...fingers crossed. Luke had his birthday party yesterday after school and we went to their house this afternoon. He is so grown up and a happy camper. Zach was trying hard but still a little tired of all the attention over Luke's birthday. Lol I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Looking forward to some crochet time tomorrow.

    'Morning all. It's cloudy and cool with storms coming tonight and tomorrow...spring time in Texas! Mona ~ Waiting for results is so hard. Thank you for keeping us informed - we're all thinking of you! I'm so glad you're able to squeeze in some crochet time. Cindy ~ Yay for normalcy! I really think it's time for you to start a new project. How is your mother in law? Judy ~ The afghan is so pretty with such happy colors! Love seeing your beautiful smile and your Yankee's shirt! Brenda ~ I hope everything is okay where you are. Are you close to any of the flooding? Better get back to chores. Have a good day, friends. ♥♥♥

    Good Morning! I'm still here...just been a crazy couple of weeks. I don't seem to multi-task as well as I used to. Mona ~ Sending more hugs and positive thoughts to you all. Judy ~ Lucy looks so happy! Your afghans are gorgeous...you've been very busy. Hi to the rest of the house, too! We're still waiting on our April appointments with our new primary doctor since our doctor retired in December. They are renewing prescriptions, thank goodness. Meanwhile, I've taken DH to a walk in clinic for a terrible cold and cough and was very impressed with them. The doctors are MDs and they take Medicare and supplemental. They can also be our primary doctors...something to think about! Luke will be 9 on Saturday! How did that happen? Lol Have a good Tuesday, friends. ♥♥♥

    Good evening, friends. Our days have been crazy and mother nature brought us power outages and severe weather yesterday. We're so fortunate to have no major damage and we can deal with the rest. Mona ~ Sending big hugs and saying prayers for you both. Please know that we're here for you! Have a good evening House.

    Good Morning. Mona ~ Just getting ready to be gone for three weeks is a lot for you. I hope you can have a little "me" time before you go back to Little Rock. Will you all stay in a hotel or at the hospital? Please check in when you can and let us know how your hubby is doing. Judy ~ It sounds like you have quite a list of projects to keep you busy! That's great that your group is growing. Our weather is warming up now and it's supposed to be in the 70s the next 3 days. Stay warm! Hi Collette! Better get busy again so I can crochet later. Have a good day, friends.

    Hi Cindy Everything you made looks so warm and snuggly! I remember growing up in Iowa and we didn't care how cold it was...ice skating and sledding on the hills at the nearby golf course. When we got home, we were marched down to the basement to hang all of our ice covered mittens and clothing on the clothes lines. I hope your cold is gone soon. ♥♥♥ I made taco soup and cornbread for supper...DH was happy. Have a good night all.

    'Morning all. It's still in the teens, but the sun is out and it makes it feel warmer. By Saturday, it's supposed to be in the 70's! Judy ~ When we have ice, you will never see me driving! Texans aren't used to it unless they moved from up north. Lol Stay safe! ♥ Have you started another project? I need to go over the taxes and check everything before I do the final forms...so much for getting them finished early. Hi Brenda ~ Isn't it fun to see all the winter birds? We keep two finch feeders filled with thistle seed and we've had more this year than usual. Both gold and purple finches and they are so pretty! We keep sunflower seeds in the regular feeders and buy the huge bags, too. One of the bird baths has a heater, so that helps in weather like this! Mona ~ Thinking of you all. We're home today and I've been doing the usual boring chores. I started another baby afghan...it seems I'm addicted to the blanket stitch. Have a good Tuesday!

    Good morning, everyone. It's very cold and windy - our temps are supposed to break records tonight and tomorrow. Feeding our birds is a full time job. Lol Mona ~ I hope you all are okay. The pictures of the flooding in Mississippi are incredible! Have a safe trip back to Little Rock on Tuesday and keeping fingers crossed that your DH can have his treatments closer to home. ♥♥♥ Cindy ~ Hopefully your cold is much better by now. Good for you for taking some vacation time...you deserve it! My last cleaning/organizing phase didn't last very long, but it's time for me to get back with it. Judy ~ The froggy afghan is adorable! Your graph 'ghans have always been amazing! Are you getting lots of snow? Brenda ~ You all must be so ready for spring! Stay safe and warm...maybe this will be the last storm of the winter! I hope they were able to finalize your DH's paperwork. Hi to the rest of the house, too. DH has his follow-up app't with the surgeon tomorrow and he will remove stitches and then we see the dermatologist after that. Have a good Sunday, friends.

    Hi House. This past week has been a rough one and things are finally much better. DH had his 3rd Moh's procedure last Thursday. He fell on his arm the next morning. We went to the ER and nothing was broken, but they kept him overnight thinking he might have a concussion. He neglected to tell me he bumped his head, too! He felt fine and we went ahead with the plastic surgery for the skin cancer areas. (We had to be there at 5 on Monday morning.) The surgery went well, but he had 2½ days of nausea...even though we had anti nausea meds. Not a fun week! Needless to say, I haven't crocheted at all and that is going to change this afternoon. I am catching up on laundry, bills, etc. and will go back and read posts because I can't remember what I read before. Lol

    Hi ladies. I don't want another day to go by without checking in, so I'll just say 'Hi' for now. All is good now and I will check in hopefully tomorrow. Have a good night, everyone.

    Hi House. Mona ~ So glad you're having a quiet week. No fun getting out in the rain! Judy ~ Oh my...your afghan is gorgeous! Love the colors and the border, too. Alyson (sp?) will love it!

    Hi House. I hope you all are okay and staying warm! It's in the 30's with lots of wind and we're supposed to have lots of rain tonight and tomorrow...keeping fingers crossed that it doesn't go below freezing! I finished another baby 'ghan using the blanket stitch. I haven't gotten tired of it yet. Have a good evening, friends.

    Happy Valentine's Day! We're going out to lunch and then I'm getting a much needed haircut...our lives are so exciting. I hope everyone has a good day.

    'Morning, House. Cindy ~ Your weather sure doesn't sound fun! So glad you were able to spend time with your grandson. I remember the Sophie's Universe pattern...it's so pretty. Let us know how it's going! Judy ~ Thank you for the compliment on DD's website. In her words, "they are rocking" and are quickly replenishing their inventory! I hope you all are staying warm. How is Miss Lucy? Gracie is acting a little more mature...sometimes. Lol Brenda ~ My grandparents had two cherry trees in their backyard in Iowa. I remember having tummy aches from eating way too many of those tart cherries. Mona ~ Try and enjoy your "quiet" week! I love the days when we don't have to be anywhere and I can get things done around the house...or just crochet! Back to laundry and the desk. Have a good Wednesday, friends.

    Good Morning! It's rainy and the fog is slowly going away, but at least it's warming up! Cindy ~ So glad you all haven't lost power! Stay safe on the roads today. Brenda ~ Your weekend sounds like fun. If a restaurant has been open 100 years, they have to be good! Your post helped me solve what to have for supper tonight...tacos sound yummy! I'm not much of a dessert person either, but apple pie is my favorite. Yes, the blanket stitch is a yarn eater! I've been using my J hook with I Love This Yarn and it seems to be 'just right.' We had fun with the boys Saturday. Their neighborhood is completely built up now...in less than 3 years. It's small and gated, so the boys are allowed to ride their bikes/scooters by themselves. DD has cautioned them about strangers and they are both aware. So it's fun to see them go on "adventures" together. I walked with them and they showed me their secret places at the small park. LOL Other than taking DH to get a haircut, we'll be here today. Have a good Monday, friends.

    'Morning House. Thank you for the sweet compliments! We had a few flurries during the night, but thankfully the roads are clear. Hi segi1974! ~ The pattern has more than one name, but I've always called it "blanket stitch." Super easy and so soft! Here is just one link: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blanket-stitch We're going to DD's this am to stay with the boys. Have a great day, everyone.
