No more snow!

Ok, I believe my last post said bring on the snow. What ever was I thinking!! It snowed and snowed here in Kansas, and much of the country besides. Even my little pumpkins in Dallas and Oklahoma City saw bunches of snow. Snow is fun when you're a kid, they sledded and made snowmen and enjoyed being snowed in :)

Cleo took this picture for you, her birds eye view out the back door. At least the sun was shining, but don't let that fool you. We had more days with minus zero temperatures this year than I can remember, it's been bitter bitter bitter cold, I feel like I live in Siberia.

So what do we do when we are snowed in. Well we hunker down and cook.... comfort food, pot roast, browned potatoes and cat toast!

And then there were the football play off games. Born and bred Pittsburgh girl that I am,
I had to cheer for my Steelers! BBQ ribs, Rolling Rock beer in keeping of the PA theme, loaded baked potatoes and beans. Are you getting hungry yet LOL ?

Even Cleo got in the spirit, here she is wearing her own Terrible Towel, she even has a gold dish for her food.

I made a Pittsburgh dish called "City Chicken", for one of the games, mashed potatoes and lots of gravy, YUMMY!! And after all that, my Steelers lost, but hey, it was all fun and a great Super Bowl!

When I was finally able to get out and about once more I had lots of Valentine errands to run. Since all my little Valentines live out of town I had to get the goodie boxes ready and mailed.

And remember that cute Spring fabric I showed you? Well I got my table runner all stitched up and mailed off to Brenda to work her quilting magic on it. This week I wrote up the pattern.....
The Bunnies are coming soon! YAY, you're gonna love them!

In blog hopping, my bloggy friend Cheryl "Miss Polka Dot" has been a busy, busy girl. She has whipped up bunches of goodies, I don't know where she finds all the time. She has pictures posted of my Reindeer and Snowmen runners, so fun, I just love her fabric choices :)
As for me, I best get hopping now, I have a very big weekend in store for me and best get packing a bag :)

You have just made me very hungry. I'm curious about the "brown potatoes". I wasn't happy about the superbowl. OH well. Good food helps.

I am SO glad the snow is gone in Tulsa!
