Rainy Sunday

Cold, wet Sunday here, I've been  standing by the fireplace to thaw out after  sitting and crocheting = I'd reached the point where I could no longer feel my feet.  I'm crocheting on something that was supposed to be a Christmas present for 2012, but unless I crochet a bit faster it may not make it as a 2013 present.

We've been watching the NFL playoffs and I have to say, that as much as I like football, and I do like it, these games have been incredibly boring. They'll be hard pressed for highlights to natter about at half time, it was more low lights than anything.

I'm making Chicken Cordon Bleu for Sunday lunch, I don't have any regular ham, but Mac got some prosciutto for Christmas and he says I can use that.  That's a bit saltier than regular ham, I wonder if washing it off would help.  I don't use much salt, almost never put in any when I'm cooking, just let everyone salt to their own taste.

Downton Abbey III starts tonight, can't wait.  We watch very little regular tv and so I really look forward to something like this.  Season II wasn't quite as good as season I, but I hear season III is better.

  2. I heard that the wildcard games were a little one sided. However, the only game I got to watch was the Seattle v Washington encounter, which was quite good - mainly as a result of the change during the second quarter from Washington dominance to Seattle dominance. Hadn't realised it got really cold as far south as Georgia during winter. Must do a seasonl temperature average investigation.

  3. I know what it is like to be COLD, the other night my feet were like blocks of ice and I had to borrow my neighbours bed socks.

  4. We're spoiled here in the south, when day time temperatures are in the 40's and 50'l we think we're freezing.
    The Washington-Seattle game was good.
    Hope next week's games are even better/

  5. Oh, I won't tell you but there will be something major that happens in Downton Abbey, and I am afraid that I read it on a blog from Hong Kong!
    Also, I didn't think that this one last night was as good, did you?
    Do tell what you are crocheting. Is it easy? I love to crochet but I only like to do simple things!
