Yes I do.

During the hike it was my thighs doing the most complaining, but this morning my thighs are fine but now my feet really hurt.

Not such a big surprise about the feet. They are used quite differently in snow shoes than in regular shoes.

Getting ready for the marathon known as SuperCommercial Sunday! Love those advertisements, and looking forward to the next eight hours. Since pac and my Browns aren't playing *sigh* I don't really have any favorite to win, but it would amuse me if Denver since I live in Patriot territory. 'Nuff said.

Thanks LP! I haven't used my sewing machine for many years, and there were many bad words directed toward it, but I think I finally figured it out. I had a bunch of jeans that were either outdated or just didn't fit. I'm going to make more of these for gifts. I'll use the legs to make a throw.

I tried to explain the projects to DH, he was appalled. He thought I was making Daisey Dukes to wear!
What's wrong with wearing Daisy Dukes?

Thanks Taxy! I love the pockets too, both front and back. I'm going to stitch on some velcro closures.

Okay, I don't mean to sound like a dumb Canuck, but what is the Puppy Bowl?

BTW, I am curled up in my chair with my electric blanket, my fur-kids with me, I'm sipping on hot lemon & honey and watching the Canadian Ladies' Curling Championships, waiting for the Superbowl to begin.

I am also crocheting between coughs. This bug doesn't seem to want to leave or get worse so I still don't know until I see the clinic doctor again tomorrow whether the surgery is a go on Tuesday or not. I actually think it is more allergies than virus or infection, but the doctors have to decide that.
