I just noted that I promised pictures of the house this week. Oops. Maybe next week?

I had the vague notion of getting up & going to church today, but what with the time change & staying up to read a book until 3:00 a.m. (or was it 4:00 a.m.?) I didn’t quite make it. Turns that was for the best, because we had a little bit of snow. I keep saying, “OHIO QUIT FOLLOWING ME!”
Started working on the new temperature scarf, and boy did I make a MESS! This yarn is in hanks, which is different from skeins & really (really!) should be wound into cakes before trying to use it. If all of that was Greek to you, don’t worry – I’m planning a blog post this week about it. In any case, I stopped my work immediately & ordered a yarn swift & yarn winder. Crocheting will recommence once I get this yarn into some semblance of order.

This year’s March Madness bracket. It is already rather sad (stupid Villanova), but still makes the tournament more fun for me.

This is really terrible – humor at about the 12 year old boy level – but I couldn’t help it. After all of the microwave spying on us kerfuffle, I read this on Andy Borowitz’s Facebook page, “Question: can you be spied on by a ? Asking for an idiot.” And immediately went to take a picture of this box in our freezer (Dr. M’s emergency rations). Should I be worried?
I’ve been reading Water to Wine, by Brian Zahnd, & had to laugh at this sideways reference to Guns, Germs & Steel, a documentary I may have watched more than once as the wife of a historian.

Turned on the TV & there was a Cincinnati Reds spring training game. Also, it was in the 20s most of the day. I’ve got my eye on you, Ohio – you just stay up there north of Kentucky, ok?

My weekly visit to the post office.

Worked on a new dish cloth pattern today. Frogged it about four times, and it’s still not exactly right. But I might try it again. If I do, I’ll make it much smaller – it’s about 10 inches square, which is MUCH too big for a dish cloth in my opinion.
One of the things that didn’t make the move with us was our ironing board. We ran out of room, and I iron about 3 times a year. But here I found myself ironing a tablecloth because we invited my dad & Sue over for dinner on Saturday. Ha!

Dr. M stalked some birds today while I got groceries & cleaned the house.
Then later, he cooked a fabulous meal. We had a great time with Daddy & Sue, but of course I didn’t take any pictures of our lovely table or the food, or of the people. Here’s a picture of the aftermath. We had so much fun we might do it again!
Have a great week!
