The sun was rising as I made my way into work this morning. However it was 13 below Zero. Having Kenny Chesney’s Be As You Are CD in the player made it seem not quite as cold. And it will warm up through out the day… throughout the month…..

I cut out my primitive garden block pieces after supper and then hit the elliptical machine for 3 miles. It was too cold with the wind whipping for the snow shoes. Maybe tomorrow.

A CD in the player, quilt blocks, miles behind a workout---they’re all pieces of a good mood.

Here’s March’s kitchen table.
Last year Chelsey and I went shopping for on birthday and found these napkin rings. She laughed when I found plaid napkins that would work. I made the runner for the table.

I laughed. I wanted Eric for something so I went downstairs looking for him last night. There he was wrapped up in a flannel quilt on a beanbag chair playing video games. He tugged at the quilt and said, “Man, I love this thing…” Yeah, he’s my kid…..

Gratitudes:
1. My watch for keeping track of the time until I get home.
2. My kids

13 below - really? I don't know how you do it. The leprechaun hats are just too darned cute - a very good find.

*Shivers* that is just too cold for this ole girl! :D I just love your seasonal table arrangements, and when the first of the month arrives, I'm always looking to see what your tablescape is. :D

Your table runner looks great. I like those colors for this time of year. :)

Your St. Patrick Day table decorations are perfect! Those napkin rings are so marvelous - I've never seen anything like that around here.

I just can't imagine it that cold!

I love it that you decorate for each month. I'm too lazy to even consistently decorate once a year. This is a great runner. I love that your son appreciates the quilts that you make. I'm sure that warmed your heart.
