Life times 2

This weekend was lovely. THe weather was terrific (sun and LOW 50's by Saturday afternoon) but at least it wasn't raining or....SNOWING.
Tyler asked for chilli for dinner Friday night so.....

Both kids had soccer Saturday morning, but as it was still drizzling, I took Tyler to soccer and made Jessie stay home. Then I went home and got Jessie and left Tyler there, as Todd was on his way home from work and right around the corner. Much better than both of them standing out in the wind and drizzle.

Of course, after soccer was over, the sun came out.

But we worked out in the barn and I cleaned the house good. I'm talking down on my hands and knees with a toothbrush scrubbing the kitchen floor good.

Saturday night I finished up my Maggie Armwarmers. These are so soft and warm, I love them! I still need to block them but that's kind of hard to do when they haven't left my hands yet:)

Yesterday (as a reward) I took Jessie shopping for new tennis shoes, got Todd some new jeans and me some yarn:)

Then I sat all afternoon and knit, until Jessie came in the house screeching that there were baby guinneas outside. We thought we were down to 2 adult birds but apparently was sitting on a nest and hatched out 3 babies yesterday. So when Todd got home we caught the babies and took them to his dad. I'd have taken a picture of the babies but the adult male bird was not happy with us out there pestering them.
And watched the steelers win over the browns. Which was very satisfying!

Have a great week!

Hi Kris! Its been too long and I apologize. I've changed blog addresses, but if you click on my name it should take you to my profile where you'll link to my new blog (w/ the same name).
Chili sounds soo good. Its nice, sunny and warm here today. Though very windy. I think we're to have another nice day tomorrow and then things will begin to change for the worse. No mention though of snow, not this far south yet.
I love the hand warmers. The yarn color is beautiful.

Sounds like a great weekend. I need to begin a project to work on while watching TV in the evening. I suppose I could crochet something. LOL
