OLD MAN WINTER
Miss Molly (our 14 yo Scotty) and I are up extra early this morning (4 am). We went outdoors and within a few seconds I felt like a popsicle. The thermometer on the porch read 16 degrees and it's sleeting and very windy. Needless to say, Miss Molly didn't want to linger outdoors either.
I rather enjoy days like this when I don't have to work outdoors or drive anywhere. This is a good morning for a hot breakfast of bacon or sausage, eggs and pancakes, all washed down with a pot of coffee. Cinnamon rolls would smell great baking on a day like this. Later today I plan to cook a large roast with potatoes, onions and carrots. This will feed us today and at least one more meal plus sandwiches for Hubby's work lunches this week. Let's not forget a few bites for Molly.
On days like this I love to lock myself in my sewing room and work on my latest project. I haven't done much of this in 2013, but I'm getting motivated to sew again. I'm excited about making a few quilts for the PICU at Cardinal Glennon in St Louis. I love to make quilts for children because there are so many happy and colorful prints to choose from. Here are a few I recently bought ~~
From Scooby-Doo, to crayons, bugs and pinatas, the prints are so much fun!!
Whatever your Sunday brings you, stay safe and enjoy the day!
