Good morning. We are enjoying a gorgeous sunny morning here in my little part of New England. Later though, it is supposed to rain, and be wet throughout the night. I have to work tonight so I don't mind the rain. Unfortunately, I was not able to convince my co-worker to swap nights with me. No problem, I'll have me a different weekend off later when the weather is warmer.
Well, did any of you pick a winner in the Kentucky Derby yesterday? My pick was We Miss Artie. He did not win, but he did come in tenth. Did anyone pick California Chrome? What a fabulous horse!
Yesterday morning, Joe and I did manage to get out to do some food shopping, but I forgot to stop by the post office to mail out my box. It will have to wait now until tomorrow or Tuesday. In the afternoon, I did go online to see if Jo-Ann's Fabric store was having any sales on yarn. I got lucky. They not only had my favorite yarn on sale, they also had free shipping.
So now I have new yarn coming for another afghan project. Woo Hoo!! Here's a photo of how the blue afghan is looking. Only sixty seven more rows to go. I do have a couple other patterns that I will work on in between making these ripple afghans. However, this pattern works up rather quickly which is good because most all of them are being given away.
Yesterday, we had a lot of activity at our bird feeder. Seems like at least one or two or each different bird family was visiting the feeder. Here is one of the cardinals. (photo taken through kitchen window) Along with his lunch, he was enjoying one of the few patches of sunshine that we got.
We also got to work in one of the gardens for a bit, and Joe planted some of the new bulbs, and a couple of our potted plants. I also sprinkled some wildflower seeds about. Hopefully, some of these seeds will grow into colorful flowers.
While I had the camera out, I couldn't help but take a few photos of my handsome little guy. Here he is relaxing in his bed. He just seems to get cuter every day.
I have one more photo to share. Deanne sent this one to me Friday evening of Kevin and his prom date just before they left to go to their Junior Prom. Gosh, they look beautiful. My goodness, but our little ones are just about all grown up. Kevin is my next to youngest grandchild. Methinks I'm getting old!
That's all my news for this morning. Now I'm going to spend some quality time with Pogo. Poor thing is sitting here next to me and looking so neglected. I guess a hug is in order. (plus a turkey treat!) So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.\
Hugs, Edna B.
