Good morning. It's still a bit cloudy, but the sun is definitely planning on shining down on us today. Sometime during the night, some winds went through our area, and this morning the ground is littered with leaves. Summer is gently saying "farewell".
Today is supposed to be quite nice, 75F degrees with a chance of scattered thunder storms. The nice thing is that I was able to open our door an hour ago to let in the fresh morning air. Except for one cool day, this whole week is supposed to be really nice.
Yesterday, DIL Janet came by for some help getting her new phone activated and set up. Well, that was sort of a fiasco. She was here for several hours attempting to just get this phone activated, but we kept running into all sorts of snags. Several hours and phone calls later, she took the phone home with her, deciding to leave it till today to try again.
Why is it that some things are so easy to turn on and set up, while others are just so darned ornery? If it were my phone, I'd have probably given it the hammer treatment. I know, it's sad when a little thing like a cell phone can turn an adult into a raving nutcase. This is why I turn to someone else to do these sort of things for me.
Yesterday, I took some photos of the two new afghans I'm working on. I've been using the same chevron pattern on all of my afghans, but I've been changing the stitch pattern on some of them. (single crochet vs half double crochet, etc.) This way I don't get bored. The first photo shows the Country Blue afghan, and the second photo shows the Frosty Green afghan. Pretty, yes?
We used to have an A.C. Moore store nearby, but it closed. I miss this store because it had a fantabulous selection of yarns. I've located another of their stores a few towns over that was having a huge sale on yarns. I thought Janet and I might check it out, however yesterday was the last day of the sale so we did not bother. I'll have to keep a watch for their next yarn sale.
Well, that's about all that's happening here. It's time for me to rustle up something tasty for breakfast. Hmmm, maybe some scrambled eggs with green peppers? I haven't had these for a while. So, on that note I'll leave you. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
