sailboat

As part of redecorating my living room, I took away the old cluttered bookshelves and put up Dirk's grandfather's hand built sailboat that the VandenBerg's brought us a few months ago. Now I am so happy with the result I can't imagine why I didn't put the boat up right away! My sailing living room theme is almost complete :-)

new coat

 

It took me a while, but here is the picture of my new coat. I am quite fond of it and think I made a good choice. It is very warm, I love the length and the fitted look, and Sierra's fur is much less visible against the color than it was against my old balck coat :-P Posted by Picasa

Steelers Parade

250,000 people showed up downtown to congradulate the Steelers. This is the largest downtown event that Pittsburgh has ever had! That's a lot of black and gold :-)

 


This is just one of the pictures that shows how many people were at the parade. There are lots more here: Parade pictures. To read more about the Steelers and the Pittsburgh celebration look here: Pittsburgh Post Gazette Steelers page Posted by Picasa

Steelers Country

Last Friday before the superbowl = Steelers mania
Every business and most houses have Steelers signs, flags or banners. At least half of all Pittsburghers are wearing Steelers jerseys or shirts or in some cases very tall black and gold hats. Even the little old ladies at the bakery were wearing huge steelers earings this morning. Steelers banners are hanging over evey major street and some streets are shut down for Steeler fan gatherings. I believe Pittsburgh is officially ready for the Superbowl. Only two more days!

Winter (?) Weather

How about this weather we have been having! Feels much more like spring than winter! I know some people are concerned about global warming, but I have to say I am enjoying every second of this unseasonably warm winter. It feels wonderful to open all the windows and let the fresh air through the apartment and walking the dog feels refreshing rather than unbearably cold. Now we just need to hope for good weather for the Superbowl. Go Pittsburgh!

I am running out of pictures to post... to tell you the truth, I haven't seen too many inspiring sights the past few weeks. I will have to go out in search of some this coming week. In the mean time, here is an older picture. It was taken from our living room. Despite living in the city, we still can see some pretty nice sunsets :-)

Sierra's Play Date

Biting and slapping each other is Sierra and Ayahey's favorite form of play. They also enjoy running figure 8s from the dining room to the living room.
