The sun isn't up yet, but our forecast is for a bright day so I'm sure our groundhog will be like his eastern Canada cousins, see his shadow and forecast 6 more weeks of winter. But that's okay by me...I still have work to do on my winter chair and I have yet to put in my seed order for this year's garden. And I'd trade a dull spring day for a bright cold winter one in a heart beat!
So I made my January goal of getting my quilt top completely pieced. If JR goes down for a nap after lunch I plan on taking over the kitchen floor and get it all sandwiched together. If he doesn't...well I'll do it on Tuesday after he heads home.
We had a great time at the mall, not too many shoppers - they must have stayed home to watch the super bowl. We got some lovely dishes for JR...his favorite character, Mickey Mouse as well as a CAR sandwich plate. HL got a nice stash of B&BW soaps and hand sanitizers.
Dancing Waters is one of my favorites. Joe then took us out for a lunch...JR decided he doesn't like sweet potato fries dipped in a curry mayo...I didn't care for it either!
Today we will go and get more microfibre cloths @ Costco and maybe pick up a new book for JR...he is quite good with them and has a lot of favorites, especially Thomas the Tank. Seems like his visit is coming to a quick close and he's growing up so fast. He loves to colour the bottom edge of my chalkboard that I have on my pantry door. Who knows, soon he'll be printing his name!
February goals include completing the quilting on UPSTREAM, finishing winter chair and getting my garden planned out. A friend was telling me about some of the tasty heirloom tomatoes she grew last year and I think I'm going to try a variety or 2. Also I have to go through my fabric stash and plan my next little project, another girlfriend is having an April birthday and I want to do a heart wall hanging for her, but that's a secret! This will be my first try at applique in a very long while! Wish me luck!
OT-Our experienced a wicked wind storm late Friday night, gusts between 98 & 126 MPH and we have some roof damage. I'll be pulling out the papers and calling it in - then the wait for an adjuster to access the damage. The good news, we aren't alone, others also have fences blown down, aerials bent and so forth. We have $500 deductible so it could be iffy whether we put in a claim and rick higher premiums or just pay out of pocket. We'll see...someone else can climb up there and let me know their learned opinion! Fingers crossed for a quick resolution.
