When I came to the random thought on Wednesday’s Hodgepodge, I was stumped for something random … quite unlike me, yes I know. And of course, today all I have is random. Figures.
I saw this on Facebook … I thought it’d bring a smile to those of you who quilt or sew.
I need a new pair of jeans, but I’m having a time of trying to find a pair that I like and that fit! I’m not even worrying about length (I’ve got SHORT legs … I’m short anyway [5’2”] and am long torsoed, so my legs are even shorter than you’d expect … DD is 5’1” and has to push the seat back – a ways! - after I’ve driven her car). I’m almost 63 and a Nana … I’m not interested in jeans designed for the 16-year-olds. I would prefer classic jeans … I have never been a slave to the latest fashion trend … I’ll wear these jeans for a few years so I don’t want something that will be horribly dated in a year or two. I’m not sure I have a style … I guess the best way to describe my style would be Lands End. I would prefer plain denim … these denim blends bring back too many painful memories of my parents being too
We have above-freezing temperatures (just barely) and had rain yesterday … amazing how much snow is gone. There are still great big piles of snow where the plows pushed all the snow, but they’re considerably smaller than they were two days ago. It’s going to get into the upper 50s tomorrow … only here in Illinois can we go from –9 to 56 in a week’s time. Crazy.
Over Christmas, I asked DH why he wasn’t a fan of hockey … I mean if it involves a ball of any kind, that man is glued to the TV. His answer was that there wasn’t enough scoring in hockey. Wouldn’t you know that the scores of the next 4 Blues games were 5-0, 6-2, 5-2 and 5-0. Of course, after each game, I had to remind him that there just wasn’t enough scoring in hockey. Alas, the Blues lost last night 2-1 … I just knew that he’d get a little revenge by reminding me that there isn’t enough scoring in hockey … and he didn’t disappoint. Fun times here at Chez Nana!
I’m going to try a new crockpot recipe today … hope it turns out as good as it sounds. It’s just a little after 10:00, and I’ve accomplished so much already this morning … caught up on blog reading, walked for an hour, got dinner in the crockpot and have even published a post. I guess I should “reward” myself with some time with my needle and thread.
Have a wonderful weekend!
