Hello! Our weekend was grey and cool so we hunkered down in our easy chairs by the cheery fire of the pellet stove and I happily crocheted away on my Woodland blanket and we watched some movies and on Sunday we watched the Super Bowl. What did you do over the weekend?
I'm really enjoying the colors in this that Lucy selected. They are to recall the autumn leaves, green of the leaves, mosses and blues of the sky.
The blanket is now big enough to warm my legs as I stitch along.
Kristi's mom got the boys this fun little seedling grower for Christmas and Kristi set it up in the kitchen and lo and behold, there are seeds sprouting! How fun is this?
See the little lettuce plant? 2 bell peppers are growing and some dill in the upper right hand corner.
These are the lights that help the seedlings grow, pretty wild, huh?
Then yesterday afternoon was the Super Bowl. Now in the spirit of transparency, neither Dayle nor I are avid sports fans. But this is a big game with lots of hullaballoo and so it's kind of fun to watch. For me, the best parts are the commercials and the big halftime show. :-) The contestants were the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. I really didn't care who won, but I liked the name of the "Patriots". LOL!
Justin Timberlake's show was fun, he went up in the audience and the teenager on the left is making the news as Justin stopped and posed for a selfie with him as he was walking past. Cute.
JT gave the entire audience flashlights and light devices so they could be part of the show, I thought that was brilliant.
If you're a reader from another country, do you have big extravagances for your sports teams such as this? If you're an American, which team were you rooting for?
At our Portland Women's Forum meeting last week I picked up this gorgeous glass bowl for $1! It's about 14 inches across and so pretty.
I just found out they are starting a knitting club here in town at the Grange, I might go up and check it out. I've been wishing to get involved in a "knit and natter" type group. Are you in a similar group? Have a super week.. I'm off to swim soon. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
