Feeling randomly chatty, today!…
~ It’s cold out, to put it mildly (haha, pun!):
But the funny thing is that I was warm while B and I walked this afternoon! I fully credit my Sorel boots and the disposable heatwarmers for my hands that I stuffed in my (triple layer of) mitts. In fact, I didn’t want to come inside! The sunshine was glorious.
~ Have you got the football game on??
Classic match-ups this year to determine who will get to the Superbowl. Who’s your team??
Green Bay Packers?
New York Jets?
I JUST had B put the final minutes of the Packers-Bears game on for me. It was 14-7 Packers til JUST NOW the Packers intercepted the ball and scored another touchdown. Best football of the year today – typically, closer and more action-packed games than the Super Bowl. I don’t regularly watch the NFL games anymore, but I do enjoy the excitement of today’s battles!
[ETA: touchdown Chicago! I can't even keep up!
ETA2: game over! Packers advance!]
~ Deal of the Century:
For Christmas 2009, I bought The Brother this jacket at the store:
I paid full price for it – $89.99 – at the time (before my staff discount). [Oops! HaHa, nothing like telling someone how much you paid for their gift!]
We’ve had one size Large jacket hanging around the store since that time. Recently our Home Office has reduced the price a few times. On Friday, our markdown report indicated the price to be….$4.99. That is NOT a typo. Yes, that would be approx the price of a S’bucks coffee! I snapped it up right away for my Dad. Once again, apply the employee discount and I paid…
This is one for the record books! Dad looks great in his new jacket, too!
Just don’t wear it for your golf games together, guys!
~ Finished a knitting project today!
(‘Twas quite slow at the store during my morning shift):
I designed this blanket simply because I wanted an excuse to use the gorgeous yarn! It’s actually sock yarn – Noro’s Kureyon sock yarn. Due to the shape and wool content of the yarn, I think it will be best suited as a stroller blanket - snuggle it around baby as a winter warmer! I’ll keep it on hand to give as a “welcome, baby” gift, when needed. I’m pretty happy with how fast this project went – I started knitting the blanket Sunday December 19, so it took just over a month – not bad
considering I ripped back a few rows a couple of times!
mindless project (ie one I can while reading) is going to be this shrug for mom…
Mom and I picked up this kit (mom pays, I knit) at the Knitter’s Fair, back in September (where has the time gone?!). With any luck, mom will still get some wear out of the shrug during this winter season.
~ …and I’m outta here! We have two episodes left of Season 2 of Rescue Me, so we’re going to watch those now! And you betcha I’ll be knitting!
