Good morning. No sunshine expected today, just a lot of clouds and some rain. But, the temps will still be fairly warm, so that's okay. The gardens and the lawn need a bit of rain.
Yesterday I did not finish all the shredding, but we did get to walk around the yard a bit. And, later in the afternoon Joe and I did a bit of food shopping. I do have to go back to Walmart later today though. My prescription was not ready and I want to do a bit of clothes shopping for my daughter Laura Jean.
I do hope my box of yarn gets here today because I'm anxious to get the next afghan started so that I can work on it over the weekend at work. As long as these old hands will hold up, I want to keep on crocheting because it is so very relaxing.
I bought a thistle sock the other day, and Joe hung it up by the bird feeder. Remember the movie saying "Build it and they will come"? Well that is what I had in mind. I was so hoping to attract more of these beautiful golden finches to our yard, and thought this just might do the trick. Yesterday as I was walking by the kitchen window, I saw two beautiful golden finches enjoying lunch on the sock. Yeahhhhh!!!
Isn't it wonderful when little things like this can make a person so happy? I would miss my birds something wicked if they were not here. Their chirping is music to my ears.
I have another photo to share this morning. This one was taken Wednesday evening when DIL Janet was here. Pogo was wanting her to put down her crocheting and play with him. I think he got his message across. The photo is a bit fuzzy, but I like it anyway.
Today I think I'll do a bit more of the shredding, and then maybe I'll just curl up in my comfy lounge chair and do a bit of crocheting and watch some TV. These are great rainy day activities.
I have a couple of cute bird figurines for the garden, so maybe tomorrow I can go out and take some photos. Also, our blossoming cherry tree is beginning to blossom. I'll definitely want to get a few photos of this too.
Well, that's it for this morning. Till Sunday, Y'all be warm and have a wonderful weekend.
