Did Spring come Early

The weather the last few days makes you think that Spring has come early. Monday we had 65 and today it was 62. People were walking and jogging in their shorts and it is only the end of January. It has been so unpredictable.
Have you ever started a project thinking that you had everything for it to find out that you are short a color or something? That is me, with all of the embroidery thread I have I am one color short. I guess I will stop at Hobby Lobby on my way home from work tomorrow evening. I have been a little lax in visiting you all, but I promise I will catch up with you. I have been very busy making tea towels. Everything in my inventory is basically for the fall and winter seasons. My grandson wanted to know how many new ones did I have done. When I told him three, he said that wasn't very many. He told me he could help and he is only 7. I have to wait a day or two because he is busy with his new Lego set. He has to finish his building first. He can only work on it when his homework and chores are done. .
My grandsons are so funny especially the younger two. The youngest has already staked his claim to go to the airport to get his uncle John when he flies home. He wants to know how soon he will be coming home for a visit.
He made me a parrot out of his art box, but I have to wait for his eyes to get dry before I can put him on the fridge. He had just glued them on when we stopped by their house.
My hubby doesn't know it, but we are going to their house Saturday night for dinner to celebrate his birthday with the family. I don't think our oldest will fly home, but then you never know. We will all talk to him by phone though so that he won't feel left out. She said that dad would get his blueberry pie. It may be a cheesecake pie with the blue berry topping, but he won't care one way or the other. 
My youngest grandson was going to make his valentine box with daddy's help while they waited  for mommy to get home from work. He had already fixed Valentine baggies with candy for each of his classmates. He told me he had to sign his Valentines, but he was waiting for mommy to help him. Do you remember making and decorating valentine boxes when you were growing up?
Hope you all have a wonderful rest  of the week

Hi Shirley, It does seem like Sprint is trying to make an early arrival, doesn't it! I'm certainly not going to complain, lol, as I am loving these warmer temps, and watching the snow disappear. Our weatherman said it does look like there may be some snow in the forcast in a couple of weeks :( Oh well, I'm just going to enjoy this lovely weather while it's here :)

Have a wonderful day, and rest of the week.
Warmest hugs, Brenda

Hi Shirley, your darling grandsons wanting to help you is just the best thing in the world. I know to enjoy those comments and moments, as they grow, they seem to disapear into their own worlds.
You have so much talent and I would love to see what tea towels you have created.
Hobby Lobby? Now that's a treat, Char

Your grandboys are just the cutest!

When I was little our Valentine boxes were made out of a paper bag with our names on them cut out of red construction paper! If it was today, I would probably cover a Poptart box with vintage paper and put a doily on it!
