The weatherman said the "F" word

Yes, he did!!

Naughty weatherman!

(taken from Internet)

He said we have a chance of ... flurries. Yikes!! :^{
I am not ready for this. Neither is my little car. She needs some winter boots. This is my first winter driving her. It's kind of a scary thought. Howling winds, blinding flurries, snow drifts, ... and she is so small. Will she be able to plow through all that like the hummer does?  I think I'll switch vehicle with husband for the winter and get the hummer back. :^D  Hubby's a much better driver than I. Besides, he works in the city where the streets are always cleared right away. I get the scenic tour through the woods. I usually don't mind, I love my commute drive, with the pines full of snow and ... oh shit!

Anywho! Hiding in the sewing room for the moment and I did get to accomplish a few things. Let's see.
Oops! This is some secret sewing. Can't show it to you yet.

I worked on my RSC 2017 blocks. November is Dark Color month. Navy is a dark color, right?
Hole in the Barn Door. Just take my words for it, it is navy blue.

After I trimmed this piece, I noticed how small that sliver of orange on top is. I should have centered it better in the piece and would have ended up with more of a splash of orange color. Duh! Can you spot this tiny little piece in the block Hole in the Barn Door above? 

Did you find it? Ridiculous, right? Too bad. Not starting over. :P

Then Diann at Little Penguin Quilts inspired me with this post.  I too have some alphabet fabrics. So I started to play with the idea and had an audition session. What have I came up with?

No letters, but, oh! what a statement! I have a gut feeling this one will be focal point of the quilt. :^D

Then, I played with flannel because Mr. Weatherman is still talking dirty ****! Now, he's calling it a sn*w storm!

Of course, this kind of weather also calls for soup, right? I found these pastas at the Balk Barn store, where you can buy everything in balk. Aren't they wonderful? I just had to buy some.

The description said no artificial coloring, no artificial flavor. They must be made with spinach, beets, carrots and the likes. I have no idea what the black is made of. Let's try it.

Added chicken broth, chunks of chicken, onions, carrots, spices and pastas. Yumm! It was so delicious, I had a second helping. With some healthy crackers and cheese it was just perfect.

To follow such a good meal, dessert has to be healthy too, right? So I did a fruit salad.

No, not that kind...

This kind!
(for my overseas friends, these are M&M candies)

LOL!! 😝

(This weather does not agree with me.)

Until next time ...
