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!!!!

A Shiny New Week!!!!

Sunday and we are well into this shiny new year. How was your week?

We had snow twice this week. Well sort of. That is really unusual for us here in East Tennessee. Also unusual because last Saturday it was 78 degrees F and Wednesday the high was only 22 degrees. This weather is crazy!!

Monday night I went to bed and it was raining and by Tuesday morning when I got up we had gotten several inches of snow. It was the best kind too. The heavy wet snow that sticks to all the trees but not the roads. Even my driveway was ok.

That creepy figure in the upstairs window is Santa. We still have him up lol.
See the donkey?
My Driveway. No snow on the driveway.

I think the early morning light gives everything a beautiful blue color.

So into the week wide open. Work has slowed considerably so a good time to catch up on paperwork and things like that without any interruptions.

I had lunch with the sisters on Wednesday. On Thursday we had another “snow event”. Supposedly the snow was going to start in our area around 2:00 PM. and come in really fast. We kept a close eye on it at work. We even closed a couple of hours early as did other businesses in town. All we had was rain and a little sleet. The snow totally missed our area this time and I am ok with that.

Saturday I finally took down all the Christmas decorations, went to visit my MIL in the assisted living village and then took a little trip to Hobby Lobby. I was in the mood to buy a few Valentines decorations and of course some yarn. I then bought groceries, went home and walked and fed the babies.

My Snow Babies.
The snow babies are ornaments I have had for more than twenty years. They are special to me because I bought them at a little shop in town when I was with my mama. We just fell in love with them. I put them on my tree every year it always reminds me of her and our day together.

Today was a rainy day, all day. I watched the movie Lost Daughter on Netflix and it was really good but a little strange. Definitely worth watching I think. I knitted a lot and watched our Molly girl. As you know she is very old and having issues. Today was a challenge so I felt like I was lurking over her every few seconds keeping a watchful eye on her.

How was your week?

Always remember

Love your day your way!!!!
