Good afternoon. My goodness, I ran out of morning. I admit that I slept late this morning, but finally Pogo insisted that I get up and get his breakfast. I did, and since then have brought in (and opened) the mail, made a cup of coffee, cleaned Pogo's potty patch, read some emails and done a bit of blog reading. I do get side tracked easily.
Last night there wasn't much on TV to watch so I put on the Jewelry TV channel, and have been giving my eyes a real treat. Some of the designs and gem colors are just so beautiful. No, I did not call in and buy anything, but oh my I was tempted. Sort of. I don't really need any more jewelry. But I do love to look at it.
There was one segment that I found very disappointing. It was Artisan Crafted jewelry from Israel. Some of the gems used were lovely, but the mountings and ring bands looked very unprofessional. They were ragged and looked like a children's class had produced them. It's possible that many folks like this sort of jewelry, but I like mine to look a bit more cleaned up.
There was one item that I did like. It was a little bottle with a prayer rolled up inside, and it hung from a silver chain. I found this item quite beautiful and charming. I also liked the blue druzy gemstones, just not the mountings.
Later today I will have to go outside and (attempt to) start my car. If it starts, I'll let it run, drive it back and forth a bit in the driveway and then shut it down. First chance I get, I want to get to Sears, and buy me a Diehard battery. I'm thinking that Hyundai puts cheap batteries in their cars. When you consider the price tag on the cars, I would think that a good battery should be included.
If it doesn't start, well let's not even think that!!! After that is accomplished, I may just curl up in my lounge chair and knit on the pink thing for a while. Right now, it is about 28 inches long and 44 inches wide. So, I still have quite a way to go before it will become a lap blanket. About 22 more inches.
Enough babble. I found this adorable photo on the web and thought it was worth sharing. Isn't this baby just adorable?
And here's another cute cartoon that I also found on the web. As soon as I saw it, I thought of my friends who live in the central and northern states.
Now I think it's time to put on my warm jacket and see about the car situation. Till tomorrow, Y'all be warm and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
