Hello Everyone! Guess what? It's snowing! Big news huh? Not much is expected today and tonight, just a couple of inches but our street is still covered from the last one. I guess winter is truly here and settling in for awhile.
Meanwhile, I finished my poncho....Tah dah!
Even though I think it turned out well, The colors just aren't "me". I didn't realize it before it was finished. Now I don't know what to do with it. I will probably never wear it. Even my best friend agreed with me last night. Any ideas? I have invested yarn and time in this and don't want it languishing away in my closet.
I bought some gray yarn today. Three different shades of gray and I'm going to try again. We'll see how that one turns out.
Hubby moved a couple of ladies from church this morning. Two sisters who were sharing an apartment are moving into separate apartments. One is going into an adult living building. Dennis says it's really nice and has an indoor pool. Her apt. has a kitchen and laundry and there is a big dining room where she can eat too. Her sister's new apartment is just a few blocks away. Both are very close to our house. It was a cold day for a move and he was gone about 6 hours. He came home and picked me up and then we went to Arby's for a sandwich on our way to exchange our library books. We've been enjoying some quiet evenings reading together in front of the fire. We do our daily Bible reading and then read our library books. I have this handy-dandy holder that allows me to read while doing my needlework.
Last night Neal and Jenny took Dennis and I out to dinner for our birthdays. Dennis' was yesterday and mine is February 1. Then we all came back to our house for a rousing game of dominoes. :-) It was lots of fun and we always enjoy ourselves when we're together. Alex face-timed from Japan while they were here so we all got to visit with him. Jamie called from San Francisco where he's on a business trip and Mandy and Piper called and left messages and sang Happy Birthday to Grandpa. He heard from all three kids on his birthday which makes it a VERY good day.
That's about it for us. Let me know if anyone has a good idea for the poncho. I really don't want to rip it out and have lots of litle balls of yarn.
Have a lovely evening and stay warm my friends.
