This is the stitching I got accomplished on Friday between getting kids to school, pediatrician and chipping the ice off the driveway before the impending storm arrives.
And this is the little bit I got accomplished on Saturday morning.
Didn't get to do very much stitching yesterday in getting ready to go to my father-in-law's birthday party last night. Took longer than usual to get ready to go out there because we also packed "just in case" overnight bags because of predicted storm "Carlos".
We got home (with of course leaving the kids at grandma & grandpa's because grandma wouldn't allow them to travel in the bad weather- we came home so the dog could go out last night and this morning) with no difficulties (most people stayed home because of the "weather" the weathermen were threatening with.
When we woke up this morning there is about 5-6 inches of white stuff on the ground (boy am I glad I spent the time on Friday chipping up the ice coating off the driveway!!). Well, my dh decided that I've had enough "indoor" time lately and insisted that we go for a hike in our local "park". Now let me tell you, this isn't a park like Central Park (NY) or Hyde Park (London) this is a small piece of land that our town has purchased next to some land owned by the state of CT and it has a trail that leads to the blue blazed trail (Shenipsit trail) http://www.ctwoodlands.org/blue-blazed-hiking-trails system of Connecticut.
So off we went for a hike and here are some photos from the excursion.
The ice on the edge of the rail cut throughs is beautiful too...
Sunny had a great time on the hike too!!
And now I'll get some stitching time in, while dh tries to get out of this predicament...
(No husband's were hurt in the making of this blog!! LOL)
