Twelve Degrees Fahrenheit

It's snowy and cold outside. I may be happy to run in 20 degrees, but not UNDER 20 degrees. So I am staying home, my kids are coming over, and we are going to play Risk!
The kids and I will have a great time with our good old family game of world domination! Fun!
This is a shawl I finished knitting last night. I still need to block it. It is really something, isn't it?
Yep, and we are going to eat pulled pork sandwiches. Don't be horrified that I have crock potted my pork - my grill is covered with snow and ice. So, you do the best you can with what you've got.

I will make my long run tomorrow. It is supposed to warm up. I don't mind the cold weather today, it is a nice day to stay inside with family and food!

I love Risk! Well, I used to love it when I was growing up, but now whenever my husband and I play, he always wins, and that's not so much fun for me.

But when I was kid, my brother and I even made our own Risk map -- we bought about 4 pieces of large poster board and made a gigantic game set of our own made-up "world." It took days to finish a game on that thing!

Enjoy the game and sandwiches -- looks like the perfect day for it!

Mary that looks like the makings of a great day!!! You know I think that looks sooo cold though! Dinner looks yummy!! I never like Risk because DH has beat me forever and he takes it very serious.

Yay! I love my crock pot. Just wish I could find more yummy things to put in it :-)

RISK! I've not played that in years.... world domination - excellent!

Looks like a great day :o)

Marcy said...

OMG Mary!! I can't believe you have snow already! Brrrrrrrrrrrr. Sounds like a fantastic day! ;D

I can't believe you are willing to run in 20 degrees...I wimped out yesterday because it was 26 in NYC.

My ex-boyfriend in college and our mutual best friend always loved playing Risk assuming, of course, that I didn't beat them - those male egos always got in the way.

Well, leave it to the knitter to compliment the shawl. It's gorgeous! What pattern and what yarn did you use? Details ... details!

20-ish degrees is my line too. Under 20 and I will not go out.

I wimped out Thursday at 30 degrees, but the wind was blowing about 20mph. I can handle pretty cold weather too, but the wind is a killer.
