The full moon was spectacular the other night. The wind was whipping the clouds by it so fast, it was fascinating to watch, but it was chilly out so I kept my picture taking to a minimum. I bet all of you on the East Coast were not able to see it as you were in the midst of that huge blizzard. Yikes, what a mess! I guess Winter is finally here and making a big statement. We are chilly here, a lovely break from the intense heat and a reminder that there are actually seasons.
Due to my enforced day at home yesterday I was able to get some crocheting done. I thought I was going to add one more stripe of cream to this blanket, but after a good look at it I felt it was big enough for a baby. As soon as I figured that out I turned into a crochet mad woman, I just wanted it finished. So last night while watching Grace and Frankie on Netflix, and laughing out loud at their antics, I finished this blanket. This show is not appropriate for little ones but it is hysterical for all of us adults, I think you should all jump on your computers, iPad's, or televisions and watch this show. I almost could not turn it off it made me giggle so much.
Here are the baby blanket particulars,

And for all of you covered in snow, this is for you. There will be flowers again, and there will be color. Just enjoy the beauty of Winter, which is easier said than done I realize as I sit here in Florida and I am not under two feet of snow. There might not be a beauty in shoveling snow but looking at it from inside with a cup of tea sounds fun.
Thank you all for you kind thoughts about my boys.
Little Buddy has a cold, a runny, stuffy nose and a cough. He is not miserable, just snotty. Max is still on pain medication which makes him think he can do more than he can, like bark at the pool. He is enjoying these stay at home days where he can be petted and tended to round the clock.
Hope you are all safe and warm, and for those of you around the world I hope you have cooled off.
