Steelers loose, but still proud!

Some lovely snow pictures. We got another 3 inches overnight, and getting some more today. We have a little over a foot now I think. Still real cold! 20 this morning.

Out my kitchen door -
Our shed, hubby's truck and yes, that's a hand pump.
Standing on my front porch -

Celebrating before the big game! Of course we didn't do much celebrating after the game.

TV - Well, the votes are in.. da da da da! Favorite show so far - "Off the Map"
Sorry "Cape" still love you dearly, you are still hot, just - "Off the Map" squeaks by for the win.

American Idol -I am amazed at 2 things - How much I am loving JoLo! What a sweetie! She couldn't be more adorable if she was paid, ah hem! Oh yeah, she is paid, but still.
And second - What a jerk Stephen Tyler is! He couldn't be more of a jerk if he was p... well you get my point. And I am an Aerosmith fan, I can't imagine what people who do not like Aerosmith think of him! He needs to seriously STOP singing with EVERYBODY!!!!! and STOP hitting on ALL the girls!

KNITTING - This is the sweater I am working on.

This is the back so far, but it is hard to see the pattern in this picture. I promise to post better pictures as I go along. Really pretty colors though.

You guys who are not from NY seriously don't know how true this is! Just this past week. My hubby and I went shopping (When he was home) we got out of the car and both said - "Wow, it is really warm out now!" "Yeah, I'm gonna take my coat off, its too hot with it on." We looked at the temp - it was 31! This is a true story! I guess heat and cold is all relative depending on where you live. When it has been in the teens for 3 weeks, 31 feels warm!
