Cold and cloudy Friday morning!
Good morning my sweet friends, how are you all doing today?
I know a lot of you on the East coast are dealing with some very nasty weather, I've been thinking about you and praying that you're all safe and sound and keeping warm.....well, as warm as you can get.
It's a cold and cloudy day here in Idaho, we're expecting some rain, some ice pellets and some snow too. Guess a little bit of everything huh?
Since I got all my errands done yesterday and all the bills paid, today is dedicated to just plain ol' housework and homeschooling.
I have the lessons all ready for the kiddos, and I've also started my laundry which seems to multiply as I empty the basket. Will have to iron later this afternoon.
Since I don't already have so many crochet projects in the works, I've decided to jump in on another. Oh boy! I just couldn't help it, I saw a post from one of my favorite blogs Le Monde de Sucrette, and she was talking about a big Crochet Mood Blanket that a bunch of bloggers are doing. I immediately jumped in and joined the Facebook page.
I'm a little behind, so I plan on going with simple smaller squares and making at least 3 today.
Here are my color inspirations for my mood blanket.
So excited about this one. If you want to find out more about it, make sure to check out mummy-stacey on Instagram. The main idea is this:
mummy_stacey on Instagram had the great idea to make a blanket consisting of a square-a-day (or week) and using different colours to reflect your mood! Will you do 365 or 52 squares?
So you can either crochet a square a day, or a square a week. Not too bad right?
Since today is a slow day around the house, I am sure I can get started on the squares and take them along with me as I move from room to room, or while the kids are doing their school work.
With this weather, everyone seems to be snuggling on couches with blankets and trying to stay warm.....even the puggies.
Miss Lola prefers my bed to snuggle and relax, while Miss Bella is more into the fire thing, so much so that the other day she was so cold she got closer and closer and ended up a little too close and burning herself. Silly pug.
Well, I have laundry needing to be switched from washer to dryer so I need to get that done.
Hope your Friday is a good one :)
For lunch I have a lot of salad leftover from last night, so I'm going to cook up some chicken nuggets, cut them up and throw them in. I'll make a quick honey mustard dressing for it and call it good.
Dinner will be a simple Beef Stroganoff served over rice.
