Good morning. Thank goodness I fell asleep early last evening because Pogo was waking me very early this morning for his breakfast. At 4:30, to be exact. He slept right through his late evening snack last night, so that's why he's hungry so early this morning.
And what did this good mama do? Well, I got up and made him some breakfast, that's what. And while I was at it, I made myself a nice hot cup of coffee to enjoy while I sat at my laptop and played catch up on some blog reading.
Today is another gorgeous day where our temperature will get up to the mid 70's. It's been such a pleasure being able to keep the windows open again. Unfortunately, the cooler temps will be moving back in this weekend. In the meantime though, I'm just loving these warm temps.
A couple friends of mine were very surprised that folks actually made sweaters for their chickens. To be honest, I was quite surprised myself. But think about it. Chickens get cold too, and sometimes they lose a lot (or all) of their feathers. A sweater could make them quite comfy.
I downloaded this image from Google (author unknown) to show you just how adorable chicken fashion can be. If you're interested, just search for crocheted (or knitted) sweaters for chickens on Google, and you'll find a wealth of free patterns. Your chickens will love you!!
I also came across a blog that had a pattern for wheelchair lapghans. Basically, these are just a bit narrower and shorter than a lap afghan so that they fit comfortably on the lap of a person in a wheel chair. I downloaded the pattern and will try it out. It's supposed to work up rather quickly. Once I try the pattern, I'll retype it and post it here if anyone would like it. These would make great gifts to donate to a veterans hospital or nursing home.
A friend sent me this image of another fun project. Button flowers. I don't have a pattern for these, but it should be easy enough to make them by following the images. These actually remind me of something I seem to remember from my childhood. Hmmm. These would make rather pretty shade pulls. (Do they still use shade pulls? Or am I dating myself?)
Before nodding off to lala land last night, I put a few more rows on the bright green afghan, and now there are only three more rows left to finish it. Ooooo weeee! Tonight I'll finish this one and maybe work a bit on the lavender afghan. I seem to procrastinate when it comes to this lavender afghan because I just don't love it anymore. Maybe I'll like it better when I put some more rows on it. If not, I'll just start it over.
This morning I have a follow up appointment with my orthopedic doctor. After that, I need to start my spaghetti sauce for tonight's supper. DIL will be coming by and pasta is our favorite food. Pogo will be having steak. Oh you lucky dog!!
Well that's all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
