Great Song!

Someone posted this on Facebook and I thought it was such a great song that I want to share it with all of you.  By the way, I have a music player on this blog that you might want to check out. It's in the column on your right.  Enjoy and remember--"It'll be all right again!"

Whazzz Happenin'

Not much going on here. DH and I spent a lazy weekend. I did finish the baby cocoon I was crocheting. I'll hold off on posting a photo of it until I get the matching hat done.

I'm making the blue one.

Winter storm is supposed to move in tonight. I have plenty of canned food on hand and a few MREs and the camping stove with several bottles of propane on hand just in case we lose power. Also have a few of the gallon-size bottles of water. If we get the word that the water will be cut off I'll fill the bathtubs up for miscellaneous needs. I just expect everything to be ok though.

The oven on my stove stopped working and I haven't had it for 2 years yet! I've always bragged about how quickly the oven pre-heated and I mentioned to dh that it seem to be taking a long time and he said "check it." The darned thing was stone-cold! I had mixed up a batch of cookie dough this weekend and tried to bake some snickerdoodles and I ended up resorting to my toaster oven to make them. The bottoms got a bit too brown but we ate them anyway. :)

Son #1 is going to Colorado this week. Hope he doesn't get snowed in there. I really don't want him to go there especially this time of the year but he's a big boy and I guess he can handle himself.

Need to get to the store to do my "coupon" shopping at Walgreens. Y'all take care...

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern 10 January 2011

Do you need a quick pattern to make a gentleman some sort of headgear to keep his ears warm in this brrrrr cold weather? The answer may be found at Crochet Living's pattern "My Husband's Ear Warmer."

This looks to be a quick and easy pattern that takes a smaller amount of yarn than a more traditional hat or beanie so it's a good stash buster too.

Enjoy  :)
