Cold and Windy Today

This week the weather was just beautiful! It was in the 60's to 70's and sunny every day. Then yesterday at about 1:00pm it started raining and it is now cold and windy. The rain has pretty much stopped, but it is still windy and cold. Winter is coming quicker than we know it!

Yesterday I spent the day running some errands. I went to the library, the post office, the drs to get my blood draw, then to Target to pick up prescriptions and a few other things. Then I came home and added another border to my mom's tree skirt. I hung out with Rich and the kids when they got home, we had dinner and I took the boys to the movies. I then started quilting my mom's tree skirt. It's done! I love it. All that is left is the binding to be sewn down and well, I will get there. I hate bindings, but I will get it done.

Mom's Tree Skirt

Last night I also stopped at Game Stop to see if I could find a new Play Station game for Rich and the boys to play. They like some of the war ones, but we don't play Mortal Kombat and they don't like SOCOM. So I stopped in there and picked up a couple of used games. They had a throughbred racing game and another military one. This is what my boys have been doing all day:

The colors didn't come out real good in the picture, and yes they are playing at a TV in the middle of the living room. The TV was given to us by a friend who was going to throw it out, and my BIL decided we needed it. Not sure why - but they hooked up the Play Station up to it since we were watching football (GO BUCKEYES! GO IOWA! They beat PENN STATE!!!). We also ordered pizza for dinner and we have eaten two large and two mediums since 4:00 pm, its 9:47. Yeah, the joy of three boys!

I have to work tomorrow night so I will be up all night tonight. I really like it and hopefully will get to do more this week than I did last week. I want to also get my codes and signals learned - I know about half. That's all that is new here, tonight will be working on my tree skirt. Hopefully it will go as quick as my mom's did!

Your Mom is just going to love that tree skirt. Are you going to keep it as a present or let her use it when she puts her tree up?
