Howie and I...stay up until midnight, sleep until 7 (we're usually in bed by 9:30/10 and are up by 5/5:30), don't make the bed, eat whenever and whatever we want, including Cheezits for lunch...we watch every program on the DVR (the final episode of Private Practice, 2 episodes of Grey's Anatomy, 2 episodes of the Fabulous Beekman Boys, and 2 episodes of the Bachelor)...not only that but we watch 2 whole seasons of Downton Abbey
It has been a really crazy couple of weeks, which would explain my absence from Blogland. Andy went up to Pennsylvania last Sunday and came home Tuesday...one of his very best college friends was asked by their college to come and speak for Martin Luther King's birthday/Inauguration event...so Andy decided he would go up. He flew into Pittsburgh and then rented a car to drive to his college town, Greenville...it's about an hour or so and mostly interstate so he said it wasn't too bad. Yes, be was born and raised in PA and learned to drive there but he's been a Florida boy since 1971 so his snow and ice driving skills are long gone. Well that was supposed to be it for his travel north for the winter, except that his very best friend since they were little, little boys, mother passed away on Wednesday...very unexpected...she was 82, sharp as a tack, played golf all summer long, volunteered at the local hospital and Hospice...it was quite a shock. So Thursday we were making plane reservations, car rental reservations and getting him packed to go. I was beyond nervous about this trip, a good bit of snow and ice coming in on Friday, he got in around noon and drove to his hometown, Clearfield (about 2 hours) through the snow...he started to tell me and I said I needed to just wait until he got home to hear it. He gets home early this evening and I will be very thankful to hear his car in the garage. That should be it for his travels for a while.
I fell in love with Darlene's challenge to make the little quilts in Tara Darr's book...Simply Charming...I just couldn't wait until February to make the first one...so I jumped right in and did Grannie's Scrapbox...
I am so totally hooked on Downton Abbey...I have no idea why I was so late getting to this wonderful show, but I'll be caught up this afternoon and ready for tonight's episode. LOVE it!
Hope you all have a fantastic Sunday! I'm working on my Cotton Club quilt, a BOM from last year (I think)...hopefully I'll get it all put together and I can make another check mark on my To Do list.
