August 1, 2014
Good morning. Well, I did it! I'm retired. I have mixed feelings about it, but I know it's time. Only a couple of my friends at work know about it. I've been phasing out my hours, and just giving some shifts to whichever person would take them. One day this upcoming week, I will go in and tell the family that I'm done. Although, by now they've probably figured it out for themselves.
Today is the beginning of a new month, so here is my calendar page for August.
Have you noticed that August has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays? Supposedly, this only happens once every 823 years. So, enjoy it, because according to the internet, we'll never see it again in our lifetime.
Today is also Photoshop Friday, and the Queen Jester has given us this image of an adorable little girl to play with.
So after much thought, I decided to go with my first impression of how this photo could be manipulated. It would make a lovely flower garden. Here's my finished image. (Background is from Google.)
Yesterday afternoon I took Joe food shopping at Walmart. I'm really glad that we have this Walmart, but oh do I miss shopping at Market Basket. Their prices were better and they had a much better selection of groceries.
However, I do understand why the workers are protesting, and I agree with them. It's sad to say, bit I think Market Basket is going to do themselves right out of business like some other markets have done.
Last night I put a few more rows on the navy blue afghan, and now there are only seventeen more rows to go. I must admit that in between working on the afghan, I started and completed another crochet project. One more giftee all finished. I'm hoping to finish up the navy blue afghan by tomorrow night. I can't wait to start something with my new yarns, but first I need to finish most of what is already started. Ah, well.
Now it's time to mosey on out to the kitchen and rustle up some breakfast. Pogo has been waiting patiently for that dish of doggie food that we both know he isn't going to eat. I've tried everything I can think of to get this little guy to eat, and I'm running out of ideas. So if anyone has any ideas that might work, let me know and I'll give them a try.
On that note, I'll take my leave till Sunday. Y'all have a fabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
