Today was one of those days you just didn't want to be inside....it was 65 today and the sun was shining so bright - lots of wind but that's okay because hopefully it would help the warm temps melt the snow some more and while it's very nice it's just a bit too chilly to sit in the screen room (below).
I went out there for just a bit and relaxed on the sofa with the sun shining in while Doug cleaned the messy cans of soda that froze and exploded in the refrigerator out there....such a mess everywhere - glad I had lots of sewing to do...lol
Here's the beautiful 100% wool I purchased in Pennsylvania at $10.99 a yard....I'm hoping to be able to get a nice Penny Rug from it. I want to make a really traditional one with just pennies. It's not Dougs favorite look but hey, who's doing all the sewing anyway......(she said smiling!)
Yesterday was a day of searching for the right Lego set for our grandson Joe who was 9 on the 2nd....he had some specific ones on his list but go figure, everywhere we went they didn't have them. Unknown to us he got the names from the Lego pamphlet that came with some of his Legos, and I guess they didn't have them anymore......so with lots of back and forth phone calls to mom and dad we finally came up with one he would want...POWER MINERS THUNDER DRILLER.
I'm not sure what he'll want next because he has most of these kinds of Legos...he's not into the Bionic ones, mostly the heavy equipment and machine kinds. He and his daddy have some of the huge remote controlled graders, dozers and dump trucks.....but daddy drives a huge earth moving/packing machine so it's in his blood I guess!
Have a wonderful evening and hope to see lots of your bright faces...I'm off to check on everyone's Blogs right now.
