I just love Valentine's Day. Pretty cards and little gifts to say, "I love you". I surprised Mr. Bill last year by putting a Valentine's Day display on the dining room table while he was out doing errands. Will do the same this year and will be sure to post a picture. I'll be adding a few pieces to it. First of all, I'm cross stitching "Valentine Bird". Thank you to my dear friend Louise at http://raggedystitcher.blogspot.com/ A lovely lady indeed. Here's what is done so far. Five hours into it.
This is what it will look like when finished. A quick and pretty addition to a Valentine's Display.
I said that I was adding a couple of new things.....I'll save the second ones for next post when they're finished, but just a sneak peak now.....
Another scarf is finished and this one is my favorite so far.....I think. Just look at the splash of green thrown into those pinks and purples and deep red. I'm hoping that Rita will get my message and email me soon.
We missed church this morning. Mr. Bill has been so sick with a cold and maybe even a touch of a flu. Down here in the south it's called "the crud"! I laugh every time I hear that one, but even our doctor calls it the crud. Anyway. He has a headache now and a stiff neck. He has been sleeping a lot which is good for him. Drinking lots of fluids also. I darted out to the store first thing this morning for some OTC medication as well as a few things to get us through the next couple of days.
I am really enjoying checking out lots of blogs through the "Grow Your Blog" party. What a fantastic idea. There are so many talented ladies out there in blog land and I'm sure that I wouldn't have found many of them if this party hadn't gotten off the ground. Thank you so much to Vicki over at 2bagsfull.blogspot.com for all the hard work and time it took her to organize it. Vicki is a lovely lady and does lots of knitting by the way.
Last but not least. As many of you know, our grandson Matthew has been staying with us for a couple of months now. We have sure enjoyed him here so much, and when he leaves for the weekends the house seems just too empty. I asked him about lunch this past Friday. Asked him what he thought he would like and of all things, he asked if I had any soybeans! Little does he know that since we introduced him to the edamame, I keep well stocked. He loves them and they're so easy to fix. I boil them for two minutes and then rinse them with cold water real quick to stop them from cooking any further. Then I sprinkle them with sea salt and serve them. Right in the pod and all. You pop the beans into your mouth from the pod as you eat them. So that was his lunch on Friday. Matthew is autistic. He's
brilliant and adds a lot of joy to our lives.
Well my dear friends and followers. Please keep warm and stay safe. Stay well. Lot's of nasty things going around right now. Until next time, remember to "feel the colors".
