    Our House (Part Three)

    Hi ladies. 75 degrees out there today. Just 7 days ago we had 6 or more inches of snow on the ground! The daffodils are blooming and Dd has 5 baby robins in the wreath by her front door. I guess it’s spring! i has one of those weeks. Every day was filled with obligations. I have the next three days off still and have no plans. I’m looking forward to doing nothing for a day!

    Hi ladies. Snowing hard here. There’s at least an inch on the ground. We are supposed to get up to 5 inches, but hopefully it will stop soon. We were supposed to have grandkids over last night, but they are sick so we went out to the lake instead. It was cold out there, but we were bundled up and walked along the boardwalk for a bit. Nice blanket Judy. Mary, so glad the worst of the storm missed you. Mona, continued good thoughts for you and hubby.

    Hi ladies. Nothing much happening here. I haven’t been crafting much, just knitting a bit on a scrap yarn blanket and a little bunny. I’ve been reading a lot. It’s been really nice weather here for the most part so some yard work got done as well. Since I have told myself that I can’t start any new craft projects, I have been quite unproductive Judy, that afghan is so pretty but...I have to say, just looking at that crab stitch border makes my hands hurt! Mary Jo, your dolls are so lovely, and it’s so sweet that you are sending them off to a nursing home.

    Hi ladies. Nothing much happening here. (That’s a good thing!). Even the weather has been normal. Judy, that blanket is beautiful. And....I haven’t started a new project.....yet.... Mona, ,hope they have found dh’s blood leak. Mary, I just had to switch my PCP as well. My old one moved his office about 50 miles away. I don’t want to drive that far. Hope you are all all doing well.

    Well, I sympathize. On the other hand, it’s nice to not be the only one!

    Hi ladies. Not a lot going on here. The sun is shining here, and there are even some birds singing. Hopefully this marks the end of winter! Nice projects Judy and Brenda. Thinking of you and your hubby, Mona. Mary, the weather sure has delivered some tough blows lately hope things are back to normal for you. I went back back to work this weekend and ended up working both days at another hospital in the same company. (Only critical care nurses float between hospitals.). It’s a lot lower key at that hospital than my usual work place. It was actually a really good weekend. I havent done much crafting lately, although I did get out my scrap blanket last night. What I really want is to start a new project. I have enough stash to do that, but my WIPs are out of control. I need to finish a few things. It’s a good thing I’m not crafting out of necessity! Hope you are all all doing well.

    Hi ladies. Had to laugh at today’s weather forecast. Periods of sun and clouds, rain, sleet and snow expected. That forecaster is determined to get something right! I am finally feeling better. Still have the sniffles, but I feel fine. So the last few days have been spent restoring order to the house! One of my grandsons was so impressed by the neck warmers I gave them that he wants to learn how to crochet. He’s not sure what he wants to make though. Mona, sending hugs and good thoughts. Hope hubby does well with chemo. Have a a great rest of the weekend!

    Hi ladies. Still have that cold, although it’s much improved, and I have energy to get stuff done again. It’s still very cold, and snowing. However we are supposed to be close to 50 degrees on Sunday. Yesterday, the grandkids came over and despite the -10 windchill, they insisted on tobogganing for hours. Of course they were freezing out there. So....I made all of them a cowl/ neckwarmer, plus I made a hat for the oldest grand daughter. I got a bunch of bulky yarn for 99 cents a skein last winter. Only thing is, once I got it home, I had no clue what to use it for. I still have quite a bit left, but at least this made a dent in it. Mary, I avoid driving in snow if possible. Ice is even worse. Hope dh’s visit with the surgeon went well. We feed the birds too. It’s nice to see them fluttering around when everything else is so gloomy. We live in the woods so we get a lot of birds. Mona, sending hugs. Judy, thanks for the eye candy. Love the frog! Brenda, our church was cancelled a Sunday because of high winds. It was snowing as well, but I think they were concerned about whiteouts.

    Hi ladies. Another winter storm watch here, and it’s snowing at the moment. The forecast is for another 6 inches. When is spring? I took some vacation time from work and am off for the next 2 1/2 weeks. On Sunday I came down with a doozy of a cold. I was supposed to work, but I ended up being mandated to stay home. I didn’t want to call in, because if you call in sick on a weekend, you have to make it up, so it was a welcome phone call. I have done nothing much since Sunday. I’m still hoping to get lots of cleaning and downsizing done.

    Hi ladies, sorry that I’ve been so quiet. I’ve been in the mood to clean, and I thought I had better take advantage of it! I totally revamped our master bedroom closet. I bought all new organizers and even managed to get hubby on board with sorting his belongings. It looks great! Unfortunately, the mood has now passed! Judy and Mary, your afghans are gorgeous. Our weather has improved a bit. It was actually above freezing today. I’m sure winter is far from over, but it’s nice to get a bit of a break! enjoy your evening!

    So...it is still snowing, but tomorrow we get a reprieve! It’s going to switch over to a “wintry mix”. Around here that means freezing rain, snow and sleet all mixed together. I knew that I should have worried about January and February when it was 50 and 60 degrees much of December. Still, Spring is closer than it was yesterday, and my grandsons are excite. They love snow!

    Hi ladies. We are in the middle of another big snowstorm. We got around 8 inches overnight, plus at least another 4 today. It’s still snowing! We had our oldest grandson over for his birthday visit today. We just got back from taking him home. He stayed over last night and he would have liked to stay tonight as well, (and we would have loved to have him), but he is homeschooled and he hates to get off schedule, so he opted for home. We went out for burgers and then took him home. Driving was not the greatest, but it could have been much worse. (And sadly, we are getting used to it.) I dug out my Sophie’s universe afghan that I started a year or two ago. It was kind of hard to figure out where I was on it. I need to start adding notes to my UFOs .

    Hi ladies. Still cold here and still quite a number of people without power. Plus, another ice/snow storm headed our way starting tomorrow evening. The roads are good right now. Im hoping that they stay that way at least through tomorrow morning. I need to go to work for some mandatory education stuff before the beginning of March. Plus, I need to get a new parking pass, so I can continue to park onsite. Our internet came back yesterday, and we never lost power, although many in our area did. When we went to church this morning, we must have seemn at least 10 power company trucks out and about. I can’t say that I missed the internet much. I don’t need it to read or crochet, but Dh likes to watch Netflix, so he missed it. I’m ready for spring!

    Mary that is a lovely afghan. You have such a knack for combining colors. We are buried in ice. We still have power, but our internet is out. Lots of trees are down causing a lot of damage. One of my co workers had a tree fall on her house today. 3 holes in her roof, plus a deck demolished. We lost a tree and have a lot of big branches down. Many people are without power. More ice is expected this evening, Followed by snow. I’m so ready for spring!
