Hello, sweet friends.
And hello Monday morning.
I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready
and excited to take on a whole new week.
Me? Yes, and yes.
This weekend I decided to pick some blood oranges and try my hand at canning some orange preserves. I'll share more about that on Wednesday, but today I'll just say that it was a very time consuming project. Wow.
And this weekend I did some sewing with my furry friend, Whiskers Jay. Man, he is a pest when the sewing machine gets turned on. I usually shoo him off of my sewing table - his tail swishes all over the place - but on Saturday I let him remain tucked at the back of the table where he sat purring and watching the show. I can't tell you what I was working on just yet...it's a secret for now...
Yesterday was the Super Bowl and for me it's more about the fun food than it is about the game. And I suppose this year it was good that I had something to enjoy, because it was probably the most boring game of the entire football season. My favorite part of the day was that Carrie came over and ate fun food and watched the boring game with us. :o)
You won't hear me lamenting over the fact that January is already past, and I can't even tell you how happy I am that it's February. I've realized that January kind of annoys me - what with all the New Year's resolutions and declarations about what I'm going to do different this year. Too much pressure for this girl this time around. But February? ~sigh~ I love February. All the hearts and Valentine's Day... Plus, this coming weekend Carrie and I will be hosting our fourth annual Valentine crop with our crafting friends, so we're busy preparing for that this week.
And with that I'm going to take my somewhat-grumpy-Monday-morning-self out and plop it on a yoga mat for a little attitude adjustment. It works every time. ;o)
Have a great week, my friends.
