SNOW, Harry Potter, and a Crochet Hook

This week started cold and wet. The weather report for the week was snow! We had a little tiny bit, a trace really on Monday morning. Tuesday morning we had about 1/2 inch of the white stuff. I don't know what was so weird about Monday, but I had a hard time emotionally. I had a couple of anxiety attacks and cried several times throughout the morning. I decided to watch all the Harry Potter movies we have, so The Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets were the movies of the day. I also spent the day crocheting, trying to get a baby gift done for a wonderful friend.

This week I managed to watch all of the Harry Potter movies 1-6. The bug is still with me, I love Harry Potter and it was a perfect week to watch them all because it was so stinkin' cold out and it snowed just about all week.

Thursday and Friday were two hour delay days for Kaitlyn at school. If you follow me on Facebook you know what lesson I learned! I felt so silly standing outside for 1/2 hour waiting with Kaitlyn for the school bus that was gonna be two hours late! I now call the MP hotline for weather and school delay information and updates BEFORE we walk out the door.

I worked on several projects this week, crocheting, cross stitching, family history and reading. I have been working on cross stitched bear magnets, here are six that I finished this week. As you can tell they are monthly bears! We've gotten January, February, March, April, May and June here. I'm working on July through December next week.

I am so happy I got the baby gift all done for baby Makena Ardis who was born a couple of weeks ago. Here is a picture, but don't tell Maria! ;0) The blanket is 45" square double layer of brushed flannel, nice and warm for snuggling baby. The burpclothes are extra large hopefully to keep whoever is snuggling baby from wearing whatever baby just ate! The bib is for later! ;0) I hope y'all enjoy!
