Good morning. I've been up since 2 a.m. so that I might get a glimpse of the lunar eclipse. I made several trips outdoors to see if the clouds in the sky had moved on by, but alas they had not. Between 2:30 and 3:15 a.m. the sky had a rather pretty corally red glow, but only through a cloud cover. There were no stars or anything else to be seen.
Pogo and I got into the car and took a short ride downtown to the supermarket parking lot so that we would have a much larger view of the sky without trees but there was still nothing to see. By 3:30 a.m. the pretty reddish glow had also disappeared. Bummer!
As long as we were already up, I made us breakfast, and did a jigsaw puzzle on my laptop. Perhaps when I finish this post, I shall curl up in my lounge chair and do a bit of crocheting. It's already raining lightly outside, so we'll probably be staying in most of today.
We were going to be cooking an Easter dinner this year, but the only ones home will be one of the dwarfs (Helen) and Pogo and myself. So I'll cook a special little dinner for Pogo and Helen and I will treat ourselves to dinner out. Sounds good to me.
The flower catalogue that I had ordered came, and oh my such big problems trying to pick out just one or two things for the garden! Everything looks so beautiful, but alas there is only so much room in the gardens. Have no fear, I shall work hard at choosing something.
SIL Eddie came by last night and set up the treadmill. We both tried it out, and I must say that it probably could give one a fabulous workout if only one could actually stay on it long enough to work up a healthy sweat. You have to be very very strong to actually make the tread part move.
Eddie is coming by tonight to put some more oil on it. Maybe that's why it is so difficult to use. If that does not solve the problem, I may have to box it back up and return it. I'm really trying, but if it takes away all my breath in only thirty seconds, then it is just not worth it.
I have no photos of this morning's fabulous moon so I'll share some of the images that friends have sent to me.
Well, there's much news so I'm going to curl up in my chair, watch a Law & Order re-run and crochet. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
