Hello, friends!  It is a winter day for sure today.  It isn't too cold... yet!  It has been raining for a bit, but the snow is on the way.

I made a quick trip to Shoprite this morning so we are all set on food and other necessities.  I think I will be staying in tomorrow as much as possible.

I made cupcakes for church on Sunday and they turned out so cute.  I frosted them in white icing and added little sugar snowflakes that I had gotten the last time we were in Lancaster.  They were good too -- very vanilla.

I've been working on the afghan for Mary a little bit at a time.  My hand hurts so much that I can't do a lot.  But I do have 11 months to do it.  It is looking so pretty.

It is taking a lot more black yarn than I anticipated, so I know I will need another skein of that.  And I might need another skein of the variegated also.  I love it and may need to make myself one next year.

I got a dentist appointment and an eye doctor appointment made today.  I really have to get myself taken care of.

I'm heading out to start dinner now.  We are having baked chicken, mashed potatoes and a salad.  I got us little pies for 99 cents for dessert.  So it's going to be a good one.

Hope you all have a good evening and see you soon.

  8. Those cupcakes look way too good. ☺ The afghan is going to be striking. I really like the black as it sets off the squares so well.

  9. The blanket and the cupcakes both look great. It's been so cold where I live that I haven't left the house in 3 days. It was 15 degrees below zero yesterday. But it's been a great excuse to get cozy and read books!
