It's looking like another gorgeous day here in my little part of New England. I just love it!! When the sun shines and the temps warm up a bit, I seem to get a lot of my energy back. Yesterday, I was able to annoy quite a few of the dust bunnies that share my living space, and today I'm going to spend a couple of hours shredding the two bags full of papers that I've been saving (for the shredder).
DIL Janet was here last night, and showed me the progress she had made on the afghan she is making. It really did look nice, but because there were some boo boos way back in the beginning, she had to rip most of it out and start over. By the time she left to go home, she had put back almost all the rows. Good job Janet!
I only have about thirty one more rows to finish the blue afghan. Now I shall have fun picking out the colors for the next one. I don't know yet who will get the blue afghan, but it doesn't matter. I'll put it in a plastic cover until I decide.
Today I have a pretty photo of a cardinal that I took a couple of days ago from my kitchen window. He looks a bit orangey, but that's because the sun was shining on him. (I think.) Isn't he just gorgeous? Photos were taken with the Canon SX50 HS. The cardinal was sitting in a tree across the yard.
I am impressed with the quality of the photos that this camera takes, which is good because it means I don't always have to take my DSLR with me.
While I was looking through some old photos the other day, I came across one of my favorite shots of my Michael and me, and his brother. My hubby is the tall handsome fellow with all the black hair. This photo was taken back in the late 70's or very early 80's.
Michael and I were enjoying a very relaxing vacation in Poland Springs, Maine. Did I say it was relaxing? It absolutely was!! We were the only couple there under the age of 70. Thirty years ago, the 70+ group wasn't quite as active as they are today. However, we did have a wonderful time there.
Before I settle down with the shredder, I think I'll take Pogo out in the yard for a little while and let him run naked in the sunshine. When it's chilly in my house, I put a shirt on him, but when it's warm he gets to run around in his birthday suit. With all the colds and viruses going around, I don't want him catching a chill.
Now it's time for me to get dressed and start on this beautiful new day. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
