Oklahoma was under a blizzard warning starting Friday. In Stillwater, we were supposed to get up to a foot of snow Friday afternoon into Saturday afternoon. I was excited to think we were finally going to get snow but mad it waited until nearly April to get here. Especially considering Saturday was our Tulsa Talons' opening Arena football game and if the roads were bad we could miss the game! I shouldn't have worried. The snow didn't even start until late Saturday morning and we only got a couple of inches, not even enough to cover the weeds in the grass. (Yes, our lawn wants mowing!) To be fair, some areas in Oklahoma did get a couple of feet of snow! The drive to Tulsa was not too bad, although Tulsa had a lot more snow and the closer we got the worse the roads were with cars in ditches all over. We had dinner at McNellie's Public House and so what if they have beers from all over the world, I still had my Bud Lite with salt & lime. Boring, eh?
The Talons' opening game was against the Kentucky Horsemen. This year, we have a new arena at the new BOK center. I liked the new venue but I do miss our old smaller arena, the fans could make that one thunder with noise and we were famous for doing so! We won the game, but it was close! The team looks great with a few new faces and we are geared up for a great season.
All the excitement with snow and the first arena game and we forgot to check the mail yesterday! Rick finally went down to the box about noon and look what I missed! A short time ago, Lei of And Sew It Goes... had a giveaway and I entered & won! So, I knew this stitched piece was coming but had no idea Lei would make me such a beautiful happiness ornament! Isn't this the most darling design? And it's my favorite color, green, and I love ladybugs! I do have plans for the stitched piece, I'll share the results when I get it finished.
Thank you Lei, these are beautifully stitched!
