Granny is rearranging the furniture, and I had the guys move the big giant queen sized hideabed across the room to a different location. Then I had them move the big solid oak table with the cabinet on the bottom that is full of vinyl record albums. Then I looked around and said...well..and they both lit out of here so fast you'd have thought they were trying to outrun the devil. LOL I guess they weren't going to risk having to move those things back to where they were...
But I got it all done. And vacuumed. And cleaned out window sills. And put clean slipcovers on the loveseats. And moved the lighter furniture around myself mostly. And I am pretty happy with the way it all looks.
It's a change anyway...it's not been rearranged since about 2009. It was due.
I spent most of yesterday working on a fleece blanket for the Irishman. I was going to make him a Green Bay Packers blanket, but they didn't have any Packers fleece. Said they could order some, but because of NFL licensing, the price was so high I said forget it. Here's what I did instead.
A nice native design. It's that lighter red color on the other side. Turned out nice, and I got it all done before the Irishman got home from work, even got it washed and into the dryer. He's fighting a bad cold, and after supper when he was sitting on the couch looking miserable, I got the warm blanket out of the dryer and put it over him. He loves it. I decided to make it bigger than the ones I usually make, so bought 3 yards of fleece for each side...omg...it was too big for my bed (queen sized) so I had to do it in increments...I won't do that again. It's really almost too big. The other ones, that I make with 2 yards are a little short for a man, perfect for me, so maybe 2.5 yards next time? lol Live and learn.
Hours later now...both of us are marginally sick with a cold now. Boo. Drinking lots of lemon, honey and ginger tea, taking some aspirin and getting some rest. We've been snuggled up on the couch most of the evening/late afternoon. Heated up some leftover wild rice and topped with leftover tofu and vegetables in peanut sauce. Finished off the onion soup at lunch. Just finished all the dishes from all day (including breakfast --good grief! It was a lot of dishes!!) and thought I'd come in and finish up this post before heading for an early bedtime.
Temps have warmed up a little. We've been having nighttime temps in the low teens and single digits...tonight is only supposed to get down to 27. It was brilliantly sunny all day, but breezy and a little cool. They're saying it will be 40 tomorrow and rainy and then sunny again on Sunday and just a little cooler. Sunday is my big 6-0 birthday...sun would be a good present. lol
If he is able to crawl out of here, the Irishman has plans to hit the big Boat and Fishing show this weekend. He'll only go tomorrow, and only if he feels better than he does now, I suspect. The poor baby is feeling pretty miserable.
Sunday we will go to dinner and probably a movie. All depends, again, on if we get sicker. There is a lot of crud floating around out here, and lots of people we know are sick. One of my son's friends said that half the kids in her son's 2nd grade class were out. Yikes.
Alrighty...I'm outta here. Have a good weekend, everyone....
