Good morning. We have a couple of days of rain coming, but not until tonight. Today the sun is shining, and it's a great day for planting. Yesterday we did not get to plant anything because we ran out of day. Joe says he will plant this afternoon after work.
I have a photo of the chrysanthemums that will be planted today. Maybe there will be time to get all the plants in the ground. That would be nice. I'm just hoping that the cooler temps on the way in won't hurt any of the new plants.
Well, yesterday Helen and I found our way to the JoAnn's super store. My goodness, it was a yarn heaven. The only problem was the prices. They were higher than the store closer to home. I mentioned this to the salesperson, and was told that if I had a coupon they would honor it. Unfortunately, we had no coupons with us. I did not pick up any yarn for DIL Janet because with the higher prices, I thought it best to bring her to the store an let her pick out the yarn herself.
Next, we went into the Walmart next door. Now their prices were better, but they did not have the selection. However, I did find some yarn for my next afghan. I thought that these two colors would look quite nice together.
The green afghan is getting quite big now, so I can take the blue combo with me to work on this weekend at work. I think I only have about forty more rows to put on the green afghan to finish it off. I'll say one thing, it sure is pretty and Springy. I'll take a photo of it later to show you it's progress.
I am definitely planning on trying some new patterns, but for now I really like the pattern I am using. It is easy to do (as long as I keep checking my stitch count) and it is toasty warm. The whole thing is done with two strands of yarn.
On the way home from shopping, we stopped by a little seafood restaurant and picked up some dinners to take home with us. We also stopped at Burger King to get a hamburger for Pogo. My lunch was the scallop plate, and Helen got the clam plate. Oh yum!!!
By now, it was almost time for Joe to come home from work, and them we were all going food shopping. By the time we got home from the market, put away the groceries and made some supper the day was getting late and we were all too tired to go outside and plant. But it was such a really nice day.
Today I have to get the laundry caught up so that I can go out in the yard this afternoon when Joe does the planting. I also need to bag up the trash and take it out to the barrel. If I have any energy left after that, I might even disturb a few more dust bunnies.
Well, that's my news for today. Till Sunday, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
p.s. Guess who has a birthday coming up this Sunday?
