It's Super Bowl Sunday. I have a very busy and complicated day planned. Ah-hem. Here we go...
I started a crochet project yesterday and will be working on it all day between all the other stuff I have planned. I usually don't like to give away what I'm making until it's all done, but this is a baby sweater. I bought the pattern on Ravelry yesterday, but I've been eye-balling it for a while now. It feels good to get my familiar crochet hook back in my hands after all the knitting lately. Hopefully it won't be too long before I'm finished. I did most of what you see above last night while watching TV. I think I had four rows done before that. Details to come.
This is where I'll be sitting most of the day with this motley crew. Janie is in another room, as usual. I'll show you her happy spot in a minute.
My seat on the couch looks directly at this view out the windows. I only opened one shade today because I didn't want it too bright in here. It's raining anyway. I'll be watching it rain out this window all day. It turned cold again so I'll probably have a fire later in the day.
I'll be watching some TV, probably crappy TV, until the Super Bowl starts around 5:30-ish, I think. I haven't checked that yet.
I'll be giving this machine a workout today making coffee, tea, hot chocolate.
Best invention EVER.
I'll be watching the clock seeing how long before the Captain gets home from work. He's working until 7:00 tonight. He'll probably get here around half-time.
I'll be getting on what I call "the big computer" on and off. Mostly I'll be using my phone to check email and stuff. I'll probably be gabbing with my brother-in-law during the game. We always do that during football, baseball, or NASCAR races, making our own commentary, and either celebrating or crying when things don't go our way.
Here's Miss Jane in the bedroom on the bed. She likes to stay in there a lot. I may join her for a short little nap later. But I'll go check on her and talk to her every now and then, and I'll help her off the bed when it's time to eat or go outside. Her eyesight is so bad now, she really needs help getting up and down now. She tried to get off the couch the other day and misjudged the distance. She fell and got a rug burn on her chin. I felt so bad for her. She cried. I made a fuss over her and held her and dabbed her chin with a wet paper towel until it quit bleeding. Bless her heart. She's such a sweetie. Don't feel too bad for her. She still likes to play and run outside with the other dogs and is almost always happy. She has great quality of life...she just needs a little help is all.
I got off-track there. What else will I be doing today?
I'll be going to the fridge and opening the door 100 times today seeing if anything new magically appears for me to eat. It won't, but I'll still look. I thawed out some hamburger. I have no idea what that will turn into later today, if anything, but I'll probably make something with it.
I'll be giving Sammi her medicine and eye drops. I took her to the vet on Thursday because she's had something wrong with her left eye for over a week now. She has an ulcer on it, and I have to give her two medicines twice a day and two different eye drops three times a day. I have to write it down every time otherwise I'll forget what I've done and how many times I've done it.
Like I said, I'll be making something to eat. After all, it is the Super Bowl. You have to have some good food for the Super Bowl. It's the law! Okay, not really, but still. I made these chili-cheese fries (frozen fries) last night for dinner. Healthy! Oh, hush. It was so freakin' good! Mmm...slop!
And I'll be lamenting the fact that I'm not wearing my Tony Romo jersey today and watching the Cowboys in the Super Bowl instead of the Seahawks and Patriots.
And that's about it.
What are you doing today?
