The Hubs and I headed to Foxboro yesterday morning about 6:30 to see the last Patriots game of the year. If any of you watched the game you know it was a disaster from the first play. :o( We had a good time anyhow and the most fun was going down on the field at half time. Let me tell you, looking around at 70,000 people is a bit overwhelming at best.
This is BIL, me and The Hubs with our passes on that we had to wear to get down on the field with a host. It was VERY cold! The people in the stands we so bundled up they could hardly move. Fortunately we were in a heated sky box but they do open the front windows during the game but it's still not that cold.
The windows slide open but there are sofas further inside the room so that you can sit back there and watch the game on a tv. I sat by the window for half the game but then prefered the warmth!
After the game we drove three hours and then stopped to have a nice dinner in Augusta before finishing the trip home.
Our deer have arrived for their winter feedings. A family of five has been coming regularly for their grain and don't mind driving off the turkeys to get it.
Opps! I've been caught!
I'm waiting for a call from my vet. He is going to come today and take a look at Nick's leg and some other issues that he seems to be having. We can't seem to keep the bandages on, they slide down and the stitches are exposed. Hopefully he will put them on for me and they will stay or maybe he will think things have healed up enough so that he doesn't need them. He's also having some other 'personal' type issues so I hope he doesn't have a urinary tract infection which can sometimes go along with this.
Last weekend T and D stayed with us while Son and DIL went to Houston. They wanted me to take some pictures of their rooms here. We had two guest rooms that we converted over to their rooms so that they didn't have to sleep on the floor in our room and they were timid about sleeping in the guest rooms. I decided to let them make them their own and now they sleep there without a problem and love having their favorite stuffed toys with them. This is T in her room with all of her stuffed toys.
D's room has more of a wildlife feel to it. Notice both kids beds have a purple and yellow quilt from my purple and yellow era. Don't you quilters find yourselves going through different times when you seem to gravitate to the same colors or is it just me?
Well the vet's office just called so I need to get ready and head to the stable. Never a dull moment around here!
