A Winter Sunday

I know we must be the only family in the USA that won't be watching the Super Bowl today.

My Hubby isn't a sports guy at all.

And if I haven't seen some postings on Facebook I wouldn't even know what teams were playing.  

So no Super Bowl Party here.

Rather it's Downton Abbey and Sherlock BBC America TV tonight!  

On the home front I changed out my chalkboard writing from Christmas to Winter theme. 

See how easy it was to make this chalkboard (here). 

It's a warm 53 degrees here today and our snow is slowly melting.  

But, don't worry, 3 to 5 inches of snow is predicted for tomorrow!

I cleaned my stove and oven yesterday.  

I love it when they sparkle. 

Today I cleaned our powder room and tomorrow while Hubby is taking a continuing education course all day I will tackle our master bath and bedroom.

Of course all I really want to do is sew, crochet, watch TV and/or read. 

I have a neighbor, Bunco galpal and friend who is expecting her third child in a few days.  

I found a cute free baby throw pattern called "Leaping Stripes and Blocks Blanket" by Moogly on Pinerest and I think I will try to whip up a quick crocheted baby throw for her.  

The sex of the baby is a secret so I picked some soft neutral pastel colors from my stash in lime, light orangy and white yarns.   

But you will have to wait to see it.  

Speaking of babies...I have to brag.  

Isn't our grandniece, Eva, beautiful?

  1. I am with you, Sandy, i have the game on as background noise while I read or surf the net, and only watch the commercials and half time performance! Eva is a beautiful baby, God bless her. Those are my favorite colors you chose for the blanket! Can't wait to see it. xo

  2. I'm with you about the housework ! Eva sure is cute. I'm looking forward to your baby blanket, you work them so quickly, I know I won't have long to wait.

  3. What do you use to get your stove so clean?? I'm impressed.

    Eva is gorgeous!
