Welcome to the Weekend
It’s Friday … and the weekend is here!
Look what greeted me this morning.
Can you see the snow still falling (just click on the picture to open a larger image)? I just LOVE how it’s sticking to the trees, light poles, fences, etc. – so Currier and Ives-ish, yet the treated surfaces like roads and parking lots are just wet. A perfect kind of snowy day.
And the weekend is going to get even better!! We’ve got T#3 and T#4 coming over for the weekend. DD and DSIL will be taking T#1 and T#2 to Columbia, MO for their district swim meet this weekend; if they do well at districts, they’ll advance to state competitions. Go T#1 and T#2!
This weekend heralds in March. And while I do love snow, I really love warmer weather, spring flowers, and spending time outside, so I have to say that I’m glad that we are not that far from spring (although you surely wouldn’t know it looking outside today – March is certainly coming in like a lion here. Ha!).
I’m making progress on T#2's new quilt, but I’ve still got a good bit of quilting to do. The next time I get ready to move the hoop, I need to remember to take a photo of the quilting I’ve done so far.
I tried a new chicken chili recipe yesterday (DH found it in the St. Louis paper); it was a dreary, cold day – a perfect day for chili or soup. It was good, but I prefer the white chicken chili I normally make. Today looks to be another good soup or chili day, so I’m glad that there are leftovers for lunch.
I’m excited that the weekend is here … what about you?
