Another Cold and Snowy Weekend

Hello friends, it has been a rather quiet week over here. I have been battling a nasty cold or sinus infection or something like that. The hubs is finally getting over what he had a couple of weeks ago. Soooo I don’t know about all this sickness but I do know a lot of people are sick right now. I am praying for a speedy recovery for all of them.

First of all work has been fairly slow all week and that is a good thing since I am feeling really stinky. We were supposed to have Izzy and Sadie spayed on Thursday but our vet called and said they were so short staffed they were having to close for a few days. I am suspecting Covid but can’t be for sure. But our two girls got rescheduled to next week. I am so looking forward to getting those two spayed.

I did have a little issue with my blog. I noticed last week that my link was broken. I don’t know how this happened. Sometimes I am not a big fan or WordPress. Strange things happen that you seem to not have control over. When I posted a comment on another blog the link back to my site was a site that did not exist. Anyway I contacted the WordPress team and they got me back on track. So if I commented on your blog and you couldn’t link back to mine that was the reason.

I came home from work early on Friday because I was feeling so bad. I went straight to bed and stayed there until Saturday morning. When I got up I felt much better. I decided to do the grocery store pick-up on Saturday morning so I wouldn’t have to get out and actually gather groceries. I did that and came home and that is where I stayed all weekend.

I made a crockpot full of chili today. It has been cold and windy and just the perfect day for chili.

We have been having a really bad time with our old girl Molly. She is approximately fourteen years old and having a lot of issues. She is still able to get around quite well or I should say she has been able to. She has some liver issues and really has to be coaxed to eat. She has been having some other problems that I won’t go into but the last two days we have been really worried about her. I thought today we were going to lose her. She would not get up all day. She went out once to pee and slept all day. She refused to eat no matter what we tried to feed her. We know the time is coming and that is all I want to say about that right now.

Look at that sweet face. You can tell by the gray in her muzzle she is getting to be such an old girl.

I have been working on a couple of knitting projects and a Valentine cross stitch pattern this weekend. I may not have this one finished by Valentine’s Day but we will see. Remember this cross stitch I was working on last year for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t finish it and I put it in the WIP (Works in progress) basket and forgot all about it. I dug it back out last week and have been working on it. If I don’t finish it this year I am sure I will next year.

I bought these little Waverly one yard fat quarters to make some valentines. I got the idea from a fellow blogger who made several and put them in a glass jar. I thought they were so cute and would make a great center piece. I made several today and I am still working on them. I think I will get a different color or pattern to mix with these or maybe a solid red color. The stitching is very simple just a running stitch up the sides and then I stuff them with a little batting. I will also use pinking shears around the edges of some of them to give them a little variety.

It was such a nice morning for sewing. I cut and sewed and cut and sewed and it was very relaxing and methodical. It started out being a beautiful morning with a little sun but then the clouds rolled in and by 2:00 PM it was snowing like crazy.

Here are a few of the semi finished hearts. As I said I will finish the edges with pinking shears to give them a little bit of different look.
I glanced up and saw all this snow and couldn’t believe it. I don’t think it will be bad driving or anything and that is good.
Keeping in line with Valentine’s Day colors I think I will paint my nails this color. I bought this at T.J. MAXX a few weeks ago and haven’t had a chance to use it yet.

I have a busy week coming up. I will be leaving next Sunday for a trip to Cocoa Beach Florida for an Attractions meeting, I can’t wait!!!, So I have a lot to do this week to get ready to be gone most of next week. We are going to Cape Canaveral and I have never been there so I am really excited about that. I would have loved for the hubs to be able to go with me but he has to work and he said he would stay home and take care of all the fur babies. Such a good husband and fur baby daddy.

Do you have a lot going on this week? How was your weekend?

Always remember

Love your day your way!!!!

  2. Molly is so cute. I get so sad when my little furry family members aren’t feeling good. Love the hearts and the snow is so beautiful there. Sunny and warm here in Arizona but we do have a bit of snow up north. This week I am still working on organizing and making shelves.

    1. Thank you the hearts have been a lot of fun. I can’t wait to get all of them finished. We had snow again Sunday night. Molly is doing better but we are taking her in for a check up tomorrow. She is so old and she just can’t bounce back like she used to. I am a bit over the snow and am ready for some sunshine. I am also trying to organize and clear out some clutter. Making shelves, wow, that is impressive.
