Good morning. Today is cloudy and warm with rain expected. We really do need the rain every now and then to keep things green so I guess today will be a great "errands and crochet" day. Speaking of crochet, yesterday I picked up the rest of the yarn for my next afghan, and oh my is it ever pretty!
I had originally gone to Walmart to pick up a prescription and some groceries. However, right after the pharmacy department comes the lawn and garden department. So of course I had to stroll out there to see what was new. Well, that was my downfall. With so many pretty blossoms, how could I resist?
I ended up putting an Easter Lily plant in my basket, along with four different Ranunculus plants and a Spring Cactus plant. Oh yes, let's not forget the two bags of grass seed to refresh my lawns. I think that will be it for a while, at least until all of this stuff has been planted. Here are photos of the Ranunculus and the Spring Cactus (an indoor plant).
From the lawn and garden department, I made my way towards the grocery department. However, part way there I came to the yarn department. Well, naturally I had to have a peek in case they had a nice color to use on my next project. There it was! Right on an eye-level shelf, just sitting there waiting for me to pick it up was a gorgeous Spring Green. And it hopped right into my basket!
I was beginning to run out of room in the shopping cart, so I hurried on over to the grocery department to pick up a few items. Once my cart was full, and my feet were talking back at me, I headed for the check out cashiers. Finally, everything was carefully stuffed into my car, and I was on my way home.
Is it any wonder that when I finally got all comfy in my lounge chair last night and ready to watch my favorite program "Project Runway", that I promptly dozed off and missed the whole program? Ah, but I have DVR with my cable, and while I dozed my program was recording. When I woke up from my little nap, I was able to watch it. Yeahhhhh!
Now I need to get busy here and get dressed. Daughter Deanne will be here in a little while to go with me to pick up something that I ordered from K-Mart. I will save that story for my next post. Nope, it's not more plants! So folks, till Sunday, Y'all have a truly wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
