We had another GOOD week-end. I am soo grateful for the fact that my husband and I get this time together, and that we are usually soo on the same page for how we should spend our time. We didn't do much of anything of any real difference, but here is what we did do....Sat. we had our usual S L O W morning, and then headed out for a few errands. After we finished that up, along with a yummy lunch out, we headed over to my oldest son's house and picked up little Cody so that he could celebrate his 8th birthday with grandma and grandpa. We started a new thing with most of our grandkids a few years ago now, where if their parents have not had an actual birthday party for them, (which is frequently the case the older they get!) then we pick them up and take them to lunch, or for ice cream, or to a movie, and then finish it off with a stop at the toy store (or a clothing store for the older ones, lol) and let them pick out their own birthday present. Soo much easier then trying to buy something for them when we are usually "clueless" as to what to get. Sometimes (with the oldest ones who are busy with their own lives!) we just send a card and a check, but we both REALLY love the time spent just "hanging out". We enjoyed EVERY LITTLE MINUTE spent with Cody. Seriously even though I know all grandparents say this, but Cody is just the sweetest thing you ever saw. His nature is happy, laid back, and willing to go with the flow. I just can't describe it. He is a complete and utter delight to be around. We stopped for ice cream first and he asked for 2 cherries on his oreo cookie shake, lol. Doesn't take much to please him. He was concerned that grandma wasn't having any (like I said, such a sweet nature) but I assured him grandma has had more then her fair share of ice cream over the years, and these days she needs to just pass that up. Sad, but true, lol. We talked about school, his friends, and Disneyland, which is where he spent his actual birthday the day before. He had actually never been to Disneyland which is kind of unusual for someone who has grown up right here in California, but he had not. He of course LOVED it and had much to tell. I was sooo glad his parents were able to take him.

Then yesterday it was church as always, a couple of quick errands and grocery shopping afterwards, and then home for the super bowl. I am not a big football fan. HOWEVER my entire family is....including Melody. She is maybe even a bigger fan then a couple of her brothers are, and of course her dad, lol. Since I was always outnumbered, I did learn the game, and do usually enjoy the super bowl. Most of the rest of the time when I my husband watches I head to my sewing machine. But yesterday found me on the couch totally immersed in the game. What a game! Melody has been a HUGE HUGE Tom Brady Patriots fan for years and years it seems, so naturally I usually root for her team when I can. I was convinced they were beat yesterday that's for sure, but was I ever wrong. Only Tom Brady could have pulled off that win. We made chili and enjoyed the game while texting frantically back and forth with all of our kids as they watched from their own homes.
So that brings us to today. I spent quite a bit of time over the week-end organizing my patterns, and running off new ones, in hopes of getting back to some sewing this week, I have a few things lined up I want to do, and hopefully I can get back into the grove of things this week. I am not sure why I have not been able to get myself going on things, but I have been going through somewhat of a
