Baby, its cold INSIDE!!

Hi all, hope you're all having a great weekend.  Me?  Well.....let me explain my title.

I work weekends.  No big deal.  My Saturday started off as usual, got up, dropped my fiancee off at his job, walked on the treadmill, took care of some things around the house.  All was going pretty well.  So off to work I go.  Fast forward 8 hours....when we get home the house is COLD.  Our furnace had shut off.  We flipped a reset switch and figured it would be fine.  The furnace shut off 2 minutes later.  We flipped the switch again.  Again the furnace shut off 2 minutes later.  And again, and again, and one more time.  Finally we just decided to start a fire in the fireplace, warmed up the house that way then headed off to bed when the fire was out.  Well, we woke up to this....

Yup, that is a crappy picture, and yup that reads 50 degrees!  So we called and got  a repair man here asap.  After looking at the furnace he informed us the induction motor is bad and needs replaced.   Aaaaarrrrggggg!  So since he is unable to get the motor needed until tomorrow morning DF and I are playing camp out in the living room, and the mouselings are having a sleepover at grandma and grandpa's for the night.  I've never been so thankful to have a fireplace in my whole life!!

It hasn't all been bad though.  My mom and dad made a visit and brought me a present.

I am so totally excited!  Its all the yarn I need to make my short sleeve cable sweater.  I'm so glad I had mentioned it to my mom, especially since they never did restock at my local Jo-Anns store    :(  So I have been sitting by the fire working on my sweater tonight.

I also started a second group of blocks for the Ravelry crochet a-long 2011.  I really like these colors, they are just soft white and mellonberry both Red Heart Super Saver yarns.  I am making both the 12 inch and 6 inch blocks for this one.

I also got some quilting started on the blue and yellow quilt.  Yes, I said no one faint on me out there.  I will have pictures to share next post.

Well, its getting late in our neck of the woods and everyone has the day off tomorrow so I am gonna head off and rest up for what should be a day full of fun and family.  Hope you all have a great one.  Warmest country wishes!!

I love the color of your new yarn. It's so soft and crisp at the same time. Hope your heat situation is resolved soon. Too cold for that business. lol. Take care.
