And that was my beginning to Monday. Then, I was out running errands this morning and I came out of one store to find that my car was completely covered with snow and big fluffy white flakes were still falling down. Was it in the forecast? No. My snowboots were at home in the closet. We’ll see how much of this snow that wasn’t supposed to happen accumulates to. Ha!
Now I’m home snuggled in nice and warm with laundry in the washer and dryer. I just printed out the Monday block for the KAL and I hope to start knitting on that this afternoon. Dennis’s sweater has been set aside all weekend. It’s to the point that I need to start working on the sleeves and they require a lot of counting to get started. I thought it would be better to work on when I was alone. Also, maybe this afternoon.
Here is the picture I just took out the back door toward the blue spruce tree. See those big fluffy flakes falling? It’s hard to catch them in motion.
Brad, Mandy and Piper went to a chili dinner yesterday at Dennis‘s nephew Matt and his wife Kayla’s home. Kayla is the chiropractor that I saw when we were in Omaha last time. They had the entire family over for the afternoon. The only people missing are our two boys, Jamie and Alex and Jamie‘s two children, Kyleigh and Caleb. All of Dennis’s Mom’s other grandchildren and great-grandchildren were there. I don’t think that has happened in the last 30 years. Mandy sent us this picture. That’s Mom in the back row, second from the left next to Mandy.
It sounds as if everyone had a wonderful time. Another family event that we sure wish we could have been able to attend. Mandy even FaceTimed with Alex during the party so he could talk to everyone to. I thought that was very thoughtful.
I was glad to know that I wasn’t the only one that didn’t know you could schedule posts on Blogger. I don’t know if I can do it through this app on my iPad but I have to use, but I’m going to investigate it further. Thank you all for your suggestions. I hope you’re all having a wonderful Monday and enjoying this season that is upon us.
