Good afternoon. Today is supposed to be simply gorgeous so I think I'll take a quick nap this morning so that Pogo and I can go outside and enjoy the day after lunch. I was so hoping to go to the Garden Center today and buy a lilac bush, but with so many cold nights coming up this week I may have to wait until next week to buy the plant.
After the Mrs went to bed last night, I worked on the new green afghan. Alas, I ran into a problem. The alternate colored yarn that I bought is not the same thickness as the green yarn. Boo Hoo. What a bummer! Now I will have to look around for another yarn to match the green. Sighhhh, such problems! lol.
Later today I'll go online to Red Heart.com to see what yarns are available. I think I'd like to make myself an afghan too. Maybe a pretty orange one. Hmmm, we'll see. I'm hoping to have the pink afghan finished this week. I'm giving it away to someone special.
Last evening the moon was simply gorgeous. Here's a photo showing its beautiful misty aura.
Tonight there is going to be a total lunar eclipse. The best time to get a good look at this blood moon will be around 3 a.m. until about 3:45 a.m. Mars will be visible to the eye tonight too. It will be the brightest glowing star in the sky. I am hoping to be able to take some photos, so I'll have to set my alarm clock tonight. I don't usually sleep through the whole night but with my luck this would be the night that I slept till morning. Go figure!
While my flowers are still budding, the Mrs' flowers are already blooming. Here's one of her jonquils and a hyacinth. Mmmmm, beautiful!
Well, that's my news for this morning. My eyelids are beginning to droop so I think it's time for my nap. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
