Hello Kitty; Goodbye Super Bowl
Sunday afternoon was great as I attended Miss L.'s Hello Kitty 7th birthday party!!! All seven of my adorable young cousins were there, and a great time was had by all. I left in time to come home, get comfy, and watch the New England Patriots take on the Baltimore Ravens. Things didn't go as hoped, and groans could be heard in households throughout New England as our team went down to defeat :-(
On a higher note, yesterday our country had a celebration of our democracy. It was a glorious day in Washington, and though the TV coverage was wonderful, I wish that I had been there in person to see history being made at the 57th Inauguration. The ceremony from beginning to end was glorious and made me proud to be an American.
I didn't see the parade as I went to a get-together at a friend's condo. There was lots of yummy food, good conversation, and a fun game called "30 Seconds" which challenged the old brain cells. Snow had been predicted for the overnight, but the forecasts of 3" to 6"inches proved to be wrong. It was a surprise this morning to see that we had received merely a dusting. That's fine with me as it would have been pretty darn cold out there shoveling. Friday holds the promise of the next snow storm.
Speaking of snow, here's a photo that I just took. Brother, it's c-o-l-d outside!!! Bitter cold air is racing down from Canada coupled with a nasty wind chill for tomorrow and Thursday. I had picked up this little blue quilted jacket on sale for an unbelievable $2.98! It even has a small snap pocket on the back. H'mmm. . . do you think that's for Emma to carry her cell phone?
