First post of the new year - a week late

It's a good thing that I didn't make a new year's resolution to be a better blogger!  Because I would have failed with that one early!  As I logged on here this morning and saw that I still didn't have any posts in 2010 I decided I'd better get busy.  One problem - I don't have much to blog about. 

As with most of the country, we're experiencing some cold weather and a little snow.  Now if we still lived in Wisconsin, this would be just fine.  But in southern Indiana, it's not.  I took the photo above last week before it snowed and when we still had some sun.  But you can see that it was still pretty cold outside and even chilly inside. (Our house is not normally that cold! Unless it's windy and cold outside.)  I think we need to re-program the automatic thermostat but I remain optimistic that a normal winter will return!

The little Peanut came to Grammies three days this week.  All kinds of flu bugs have been flying around our neck of the woods.  Last week  Grampa and his mommy were battling colds or something, this week it's his other babysitter who's battling yucky things at her house.  Even Peanut had his first real cold but as you can see, he's back to his normal happy little self.  This impish little grin might be a clue as to the orneriness lurking in our future! 

Next week will be exciting.  I'm off to visit with our St. Louis family.  Or at least part of them.  Our son is on a business trip to China but DIL J and little J are home alone so I'm going to go spend some time with them.  Little J is at that age where he'd rather be around his mommy or daddy so it will be fun to get better acquainted with him.  He's growing up so fast and  learning all kinds of new words. Maybe by the end of my visit he'll be saying "Grammie"!  It won't be long until his new baby brother is here so there won't be many more times that I  get to spend some one on one time with him. 

I hope to have lots of new photos for the next post.  There might even be a meet up with a "famous" mystery blogger next week to report.  Stay tuned! 

I've been trying to re-acquaint myself with some crocheting and knitting skills.  Wish me luck with that! I have started a couple little quilted projects that might have to wait until I get home for completion.  I debating whether to sign up for the BOM at Among Friends (2010 looks really pretty though!) as I'm still about 5 months behind on the last BOM.   But it's nice to end up with a pretty finished quilt top in the end.

Thanks for stopping by!  And thanks for not giving up on this little blog!
