On Friday in the grand saga of my life, the big question was if we should attempt to drive to Montana to visit our grandbabies. We decided not to go, which I think was very wise. The biggest reason however, wasn't because we were being smart at not attempting to drive through the blizzard, but was because hubby was detained at work. That was very good for us though because look what we woke up to Saturday morning at home where snow was not even forecast!
So, we stayed home and watched movies all day Saturday, snuggled in our cozy house with the fire going full blast. I completed another blue baby set that I forgot to photograph. After awhile they all look the same anyway, don't they? I also started another baby blanket in a new pattern using Bernat "Pipsqueak" yarn. I have never felt anythig so incredibly soft. This is definitely going to be for one very special baby.
When we realized that we were going to be home for church yesterday, I came to the realization that I needed to make something for the potluck after services. I had watched the "Pioneer Woman" on the food network on Saturday morning, so I decided to try out her meatball recipe. Instead of her barbeque sauce, I just poured a jar of Prego over them and they were a hit! Here are a few pictures.
First you brown them in a skillet with canola oil in batches of 8 or 9 meatballs, then...
Today I've vacummed, done laundry, caught up on my Bible reading and played with Chloe. I have baby hats for the hospital in the washing machine to be delivered tomorrow. I think I have about 45 hats done for this delivery. This afternoon I'm going to work on my baby blanket with the wonderfully SOFT yarn. I've got my chores done and now I can play. A roast, potatoes, carrots and onions is bubbling away in the crock pot so my wifely chores are complete. I love to find extra time to play with my yarn.
The skies are blue, blue, blue today so I may take my Chloe-baby for a walk in a little while. She's been cooped up with no long walk since last Wednesday. We could both use the exercise.
Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
