And my hero. My husband has been working his butt off for 8 days, clearing snow, dealing with this very temperamental snow blower and always getting to his very difficult and stressful job regardless of the weather. I took this picture yesterday when he came home from a full day's work and then went outside to move the snow. AGAIN. Yessirree. It's kept snowing here. We've had a break of perhaps several hours a day, but we've had measurable snowfall every day this week.
But will you just look at the smile on this guy's face? I mean...if you can see it through the snow? He really is my hero. I'm not just being schmaltzy because it's Valentine's Day.

Oh...wait...this could be kind of romantic. I started an older Bent Creek design that's been on my mind for the past almost 3 years. I had meant to stitch it for our 25th wedding anniversary in 2008, but at that point I didn't even have the chart. I finally ordered it last year, and just put the first stitches into it this week.
You know what's funny? My memory has been really off lately. I've been to the grocery store at least a dozen times and each time I've forgotten Parmesan cheese. Which is totally crazy if you know how much spaghetti we eat.
I've been forgetting to put the wash into the dryer and I'll go downstairs to take it out of the dryer, only to open it....scratch my head....and wonder where the dry laundry went! Of course, it's still wet and in the washer.
But somehow, a cross stitch project can stay in my head for years. I know. It's nuts.
