Good morning. It's a bit cloudy at the moment, but then it is only 5:30 a.m. I'm sure the sun will be shining brightly and the temps will rise to muggy hot hot in just another hour or two. It's my favorite morning of the week. Monday!!!
Last night the little darling (the Mrs) was in such a wicked snit, that I already decided to take next weekend off. Her family is not very happy about it, but I've already decided to take the time off. My Pogo (and me) will be oh so happy!
Last night, something outside the kitchen window caught my eye. My goodness, there were tiny little fireflies lighting up in the bushes outside. I haven't seen fireflies since I was a little girl. Of course, I was so excited that I grabbed my camera and tried to get a photo of them.
Now mind you, it was dark outside, I'm shooting through a very textured (dirty outside) window, and the flash kept coming on. However, I did end up with one photo. It's not my best shot, but after fixing the color a bit to get rid of the flash glare, you can definitely see the little fireflies.
There are two on the right that are shining really bright, and one on the left that is not quite so bright. I've put in arrows to point them out. Now I know that this is not earth shattering, but it's a first for me, and I'm quite pleased.
Today is also Mandarin Orange Monday #100, and I have a couple of nice "orange" photos to share. This first one is my little pride and joy, Pogo. He was relaxing in his little bed, yet keeping an eye on me to see what I was doing.
The next photo shows some of the beautiful orange squash blossoms that we have in our little veggie garden. The bucket this plant is growing in is also orange, from Home Depot. I absolutely love the yellow summer squash. Boil it up, put on a pat of butter, a little salt & pepper, and ohhhhh myyyy!
Today will be rather quiet for me. Aside from a little bit of household stuff, I'm going to mostly just chill out, watch a bit of TV and crochet. I want to get these last four afghans finished up before the end of next month. The turquoise one is almost finished; the red, white and blue one is half finished; and the navy blue one and the lavender one are both about one third done.
After these are finished, I want to make some squares with some of the left over yarns. I can set these aside and put them all together later to make another afghan. I have a couple other smaller projects going that will be holiday gifts (if I ever get them finished).
Speaking of holidays, on my way to work last night, guess who I saw? C'mon, guess! I was coming out of McDonalds after getting my iced coffee, and this person in a gorgeous deep cherry red truck stopped to let me out onto the street. He had a round smiling face and a handsome white beard.
Can you guess yet? Do you suppose that Santa vacations in my little town? Maybe he has family here? I mean, who else could it have been? It looked just like him. It really doesn't matter though, because just the thought of it had me singing a happy little tune all the way to work.
On that note, I will bid you adieu. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
