Good morning. Well, it's still gray and damp outside, but I'm hoping that the sun will make an appearance later today. DIL Janet came by yesterday afternoon and brought some new yarn with her to start an afghan. It's going to be a medium purple, and my oh my is it ever pretty!
I started working on a hooded scarf, but the pattern is a bit tricky so it's going to take me a while to get enough done to take a photo of it. Right now it is just long and thin. After Janet left, I got all comfy in my lounge chair, ready to work on the blue afghan, and within thirty minutes I was fast asleep.
Getting a decent night's sleep was a good thing because tonight I have to go to work. My friend at work needs the night off so I'm going to work for her. In return, I will have Saturday night off and she will work for me. It works out pretty good.
Yesterday, my youngest grandson Kevin got some fabulous news in the mail. He was selected to attend the National Youth Leadership Form (NYLF) - Careers In National Security: Diplomacy, Intelligence & Defense. It says in the letter: "Again, congratulations on your selection and outstanding achievements. You have been identified as having exemplary leadership potential. You have distinguished yourself as a standout among your peers at Brockton High School, and indeed throughout Massachusetts."
On top that news, Kevin also made the honor roll again, and sister Jasmine made it onto the school softball team. Be still my heart! These two continue to keep my heart puffed up with pride. Tomorrow night is Kevin's junior prom, so I'm hoping to have a nice photo to post over the weekend.
For today, I do have a new page from my calendar to post. Today is May Day, and with it comes beautiful memories of childhood, May Baskets and dancing around a May Pole.
I also have a couple of photos of the flowers in my little gardens near the house. These were taken a couple of days ago just before the rain started. Yellow is such a fun happy color.
Now it's time to rustle up some breakfast for Pogo. He's been lying here next to me, waiting patiently for me to finish this post. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
