Good morning. Has anyone noticed that the month of May is slipping away quietly? Another week, and it will be June. Ever notice how the months November through March seem to drag on? But then along comes May, and the months start slipping away quickly and quietly until the cold season comes around again.
In a few days, it will be a new month, and in just a few weeks, the first half of the year will have gone by. Goodness, it doesn't seem possible. It's kind of sad to see Spring leaving soon because it took so long to get here. However, in a few weeks, Summer will begin. Here's hoping that the summer weather is good to all of us.
Today it is cloudy here in New England with spots of rain expected. Once the laundry is done, it should be a great day to curl up with my little dog and some yarn and a crochet hook. Later this afternoon I'll take Joe to do some food shopping.
Yesterday I went for my stress tests, however once I got there, the doctor decided to put them off until next Fall. I have an outbreak of eczema on my midriff, and have to keep medicine on it. The tests would have just made the eczema worse. I only have this problem when the warm temps set in, then it clears up in the Fall when the temps are much cooler. So I shall go back in the Fall to try again.
When I got home from the doctor visit, I found a large box waiting for me. Yup! My new red, white and blue yarn had arrived. I could not wait to start using it right after supper. However, for some reason the red yarn is so thick that it is not working up nice. I only did a few rows with it, then stopped.
This afternoon, I will see if Walmart has any of this red yarn, and hopefully it will not be so thick. I have to tell you that the colors themselves are just beautiful, and I can't wait to actually get working on this new afghan.
Today I have some images from the web to share with you. This first picture is quite interesting. For those of use who use yarn in your crafts, this is a great way to use some of our scraps. Hang a bird treat holder, and fill it with scraps of yarn for the birds to use for building their nests. You can also tuck in bits of fluff (lint) from the clothes dryer vent screen. The birds will really appreciate this.
The next image shows such wonderful whimsy and creativity. It's such a fun way to liven up a meal or a party. It's called "Dolphin Fruit Art".
These last two images really touched my heart, and need no explanations.
Well, that's all my news for this morning. Now it's time to pay a few bills and get them into the mailbox. I want to enjoy the rest of today. Tomorrow it's back to work again. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
