Good morning. Tis another beautiful morning. I have my door open to let in the cool air, but I'll shut it in another hour or so before the outside temps go up.
You know, I don't do well shoving pills down furry babies' throats, so I always try to get their meds in liquid form. With Pogo, it's a given. His meds would need to be either in a shot or liquid form. So, I got his antibiotic as a liquid, and let me tell you - what an experience!!
This little fellow barely tips the scale at six pounds (such a fatty!) but he puts up an award winning fight when he sees the medicine dropper coming at his little mouth. Oooo weeee! The first time I tried to give him his medicine, I wore it. The second time, I had to wipe it off him as he drooled it all over himself. This morning I did much better, with still a little struggle of course.
Over the weekend, I finally finished the navy blue afghan. Wow, that was the most difficult one for me because of the dark color, but it is really pretty. Next, I started a new project in lemon yellow. I'm not sure if it is what I want and I'll have to decide soon. If I'm not really happy with it, I'll have to rip it all out and start over.
I still have the lavender afghan to finish, but that one is for DIL Janet, so I need the new project to work on the nights she is here. I also need to look for a pretty medium blue yarn to make an afghan for my grandson to take to college with him next year. It's good that I'm retired because I still have lots to do.
I found a photo on the web of an afghan that I made years ago when my kids were young. It's a good thing that I made it then, because I wouldn't have the patience to make it now. The afghan pictured here is a twin size, and the one I made was queen sized.
Are any of you getting a ton of spam in your blogs? For the life of me, it gets really tiring to have to clean it out every other day or so, but it is necessary. Yesterday morning, I cleaned out almost 1200 spams. That was three days worth. This morning I have already cleaned out another 344 spams. Where does it all come from?
I have to go back through all my posts to make sure there is no spam that got by me, because it is time to order another blog book, and I don't want any of the spam in my book.
I meant to post about the new Tamron lens that I got a couple of weeks ago. It is a 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Dill VC PZD MACRO. So far, I'm quite happy with it. It has a longer range on it which is good for when I go to Kevin's baseball games. I'm hoping it's longer range will help me get better bird photos.
Yesterday, I took a photo of the beautiful little green peppers that are beginning to sprout in our veggie garden. Aren't these just beautiful?
I also took another fun photo that just find it's way onto my next calendar. This is one of the little bird baths with an interesting tail. The angle of the two flowers was just right to make this peacock so much prettier.
Enough of my babble. It's time to close my front door. The air coming in is getter too warm now, and it's getting near time to figure out something for lunch. I took a break in the middle of typing this post to visit with my daughter Dee who had stopped by. Pogo just loves his Auntie Dee! He "happy dances" all over her when he sees her.
Now it's time to get dressed and start my day. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
