Isn’t the photo below glorious? Beautiful blue skies...for another hour or two and then a “wintry mix” is supposed to start falling. I choose to enjoy this while I can. Chloe and I went for a long walk around the airport this morning. I watched a helicopter take off and two planes practicing their touch and goes while we walked. Then it was back home to start some laundry and catch up on blogs. It is sure nice to have running water again and not have to lug our laundry all the way across the park
This is my view right now, because don’t let that blue sky fool you. It is 18° F at the moment. Chloe and I are definitely enjoying the heat coming from that electric fireplace.
My mother-in-law told me she didn’t have any gloves or mittens. Whether that’s true or not, you know me. No one shall go without mittens if I’m around! I got some Hobby Lobby Yarn Bee yarn, just like what I used for my own mittens, made her a pair and mailed them off yesterday. They don’t quite match, but close enough.
I’ve also been working on this baby blanket for a couple of days. I am using Lion Brand Ice Cream Big Scoop yarn in the blueberry color way. I have had this pattern for a long time and I can’t remember the name of it. I’m using an H crochet hook and really enjoying crochet right now. This will also go into the donate pile. Sorry about the trashcan and the sink. Finding places to take pictures is difficult. I found a new doily pattern online last night that I think I’m going to try next. Most of my patterns are packed up somewhere in the depths of the storage unit so I’m going to try something new.
I thought this was funny and wanted to share with all of you.
We are set to close on the house in Omaha early next week. I spent quite a bit of time yesterday getting the utilities set up. We have a U-Haul trailer reserved for the beginning of May that we will pull back with some things from storage. We have also ordered a POD for the first part of September. I’m getting excited as it is starting to feel that this is really happening. This is the fifth house that we’ve bought and it’s always a stressful procedure, but buying one we have not even been in before is even harder. Well, I guess that’s not quite true. About 30 years ago or so, I walked from the front door into the kitchen with a plate of cookies and back out. That’s it! I don’t remember anything about it. We are very grateful for the photos that Mandy took for us when she walked through. And something I have also learned through our years of marriage and our moves is that you can make virtually anything a home as long as you are together and happy. We have so much work to do once we actually get in the house. I’m trying to remember the following verse from the Bible. This has been an anxiety ridden year for all of us hasn’t it?
I hope you are all doing well and staying warm and healthy.
Blessings and love,
