Saturday - Storms and Seahawks

For those folks who really care, today is THE big Seahawk playoff. [American football] This house doesn't really care too much, other than general interest.  Meanwhile, it is simply bucketing with rain.  Earlier we had some major thunder and lightening.  Lots and lots of wind.  A short spate of sunshine and now we are back as another storm front moves through.  YUK!

This was my first 'daycare' event on Tuesday.  Oh those little girls are sure pretty special and not hard to care for.

The little one has managed to mostly figure out crawling - as her mom said, not pretty, but she can get around now.  And she really wants to be able to pull herself up, but she isn't quite strong enough yet.

You can imagine my surprise this morning when I happened to be out in the back yard and found these,

It's only mid January and there are daffodils peaking out and some forsythia.  Wow!  Does this mean that there will actually be a spring?  Some winters I have my doubts, but this looks hopeful.

I have been working on taking apart the old suits I have.  I have finished the old shirts.  I also have 4 ties to go.  Dieuwke suggested I should think about log cabin blocks using the suiting wool and the shirts as the two sides of the blocks.  And a red tie in the center?  Hmmmm.  I think I may give this a try and see how it goes.

It is black or very dark navy with a lighter blue stripe.

The Seahawks scored a field goal - 3 points.  We are off to the University of Washington Women's Basketball game.  Quite the sports day!


  1. How did the women do with Basketball. I can imagine you sitting there. Did you say hello to Harry from me ; ). Caro xx

    1. I didn't see Harry today - except down at the floor level. We played very poorly and lost. Booooo!! But the football team won. I am not sure what happens next with that, but big excitement in Seattle.

  2. Oh how cute that little kitchen en granddaughter with her apron! And the little one is adorable too with her rose cheeks!
