Good morning. It's 4:30 a.m., and I'm watching the Weather Channel. They are showing the damage from yesterdays tornadoes in the central part of the country. In my whole life, I don't ever remember so many devastating tornadoes as we've had these past few years. I'm not liking these wicked new weather patterns that have been developing since the climate has changed so drastically.
Have you noticed that we are running out of April? The Spring weather hasn't even settled down and it will be May in a few days! That means that in less than two months, it will be Summer already. This is not right. I want my Spring first!!!
On to better news.....Even though we did not have a big party, I hope my little guy enjoyed his birthday. The shirts that I bought for him were too small, so they will have to be returned. Maybe we'll visit Petco to see if the new summer shirts are in. They usually carry a line that fits Pogo pretty good.
I do have some photos to share from yesterday. Here's the balloon that one of the dwarfs bought for Pogo's party. However, for some reason, Pogo was afraid of the balloon.
Dwarf Helen bought Pogo a plain double hamburger from Burger King, and I used it to make the birthday cake. I have to admit this cake does look pretty good. First I put some rice on the plate, then place one layer of hamburger on the rice. Next I put a layer of rice for the filling, then place the second hamburger on top of that. Lastly, I frost the top of the cake with more rice. There is a tiny bit of butter and cheese in the rice to keep it sticking together.
Lastly, here's my little guy with his cake. This year, he's very shy. Maybe it's because the plate is sitting on the string to the balloon. As you can see, I cut him a nice chunk of cake and he enjoyed every bite.
Note the pretty orange plate? Last year I got Pogo his own dinner plates. One orange, one lime green, one red and one blue. This year I got him two new dinner bowls. Nothing is too good for my little guy. For the joy he gives to me, he deserves the very best.
Last night the Mrs behaved much better. She was only wicked for a little while, then her mood improved 100 percent. After she went to bed, I worked on the blue afghan. I have a couple more rows of the multi color yarn to do, and I'll take a photo of it. Gosh, this one is really pretty.
I'm thinking that this multi colored yarn would look fabulous with a medium gray solid yarn. Hmmm, I'll have to think about that. I don't know yet who is going to get this blue afghan. Maybe when I figure that out, I'll come up with someone who could use one in the gray.
I'm thinking that the green afghan will be finished this week. I'm down to the last twenty rows already. Maybe I can box it up and pop it in the mail by next week. That would be nice.
Later today, Helen and I are going shopping at the Christmas Tree Shoppe to see what fabulous finds they have that we just can't live without. I love that store. It's really difficult to go into that store and come out without a bag full of goodies. If only they had a yarn department, they would be the perfect store!
Well, that's about all my news for today. It is now Monday morning, and pretty soon I will head on home to my little guy. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
