Good morning. Day is breaking here in New England, and it's a bit chilly outside. Hopefully, the Easter Bunny has had his long woolies on all night while delivering eggs. I'm at work now, but I know that when I get home, I'll find a big basket of eggs waiting for me to put out for the dwarfs. I know the Bunny has a very busy night, so I told him to just leave the eggs and I would do the rest.
Do I have any good news to share this morning? Oh yes, I surely do. The Koolaid Kid was in the newspaper this past Friday. (That's grandson Kevin.) Here's a fabulous shot of him (#6) sliding into home plate. And another photo of his team mates giving him a high five! And yes, his team won this game.
I also had a surprise visit from my SIL Edie and her hubby. Gosh, it was so good to see her up and about. She's been battling the big C for so very long. I hope this time it is finally gone and it stays away. While she was here, I showed her the pink afghan that I've been working on, and she just loved it. Little does she know!
That night, I put the last rows on the afghan, and finished off all the ends. I put it in a box and covered it with tissue. Now I just have to write a little note to put with it, and I'll mail it off tomorrow. It will be like a big hug from Pogo and me on those days when she is feeling a bit down.
Yesterday I took a photo of some of my daffodils that are blooming. They are not all standing quite so tall after being covered with snow and ice, but at least they are blooming and they are quite beautiful.
I've been working on the green afghan and it's looking quite lovely. Hopefully, I can get this one finished in the next few weeks so that I can start a new project. Kyra has sent me some more links to websites that offer free knit and crochet patterns, and there are some gorgeous ones that I might like to try.
Last night I thought I might get caught up on some of my emails, and wowee!! My email program had 2001 emails ready to drop into my inbox. It took me over half an hour to get them all and delete them. They were duplicates of ones that I had already read and deleted, and some that I never got at all. Somethng is messed up somewhere!
Two of the dwarfs have changed their plans and are staying home today, so dwarf Helen and I will stay home and we'll all have a big dinner together. Ham and potatoes and veggies! Yum Yum! Hopefully I can squeeze in a nap today so that I can come back here tonight all perky. The Mrs was in a pretty good mood last night. Here's hoping it lasts for tonight too.
Well, that's my news for this morning. Don't eat too many eggs! Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous Easter Sunday.
Hugs, Edna B.
