Good morning. The sun is shining, but it's not tempting me to rush outdoors just yet. It's also quite cold! Later this morning I do have to go out for an appointment at the nail salon. Perhaps while I'm out, I will stop and pick up some more bird seed. Or maybe I'll wait till Joe gets home from work, and ask him to go with me. The bags are heavy for me to lift. Yup, I think that is a better plan.
There were a couple of interesting items in the news yesterday. One was that Charles Manson is getting married. Can you believe that? After all the atrocities that he is responsible for, I cannot understand why he is allowed to marry. What exactly is prison for? Especially for someone like him? I just don't understand this legal system of ours.
The other interesting article was about "Drive Thru Church" for folks who just don't have the time to go to church. The pastor being interviewed explained that we have a drive through for food, dry cleaning, medicines, etc. So why not a drive through for God? You drive up to the window, the pastor comes out, gives you a brief sermon and blesses you. Amazing! I wonder what folks will think up next.
Well, I have finally finished the lavender afghan. Phew!! All my holiday projects are finished. This year I made sixteen afghans. Last Winter, if anyone had told me that I would make that many afghans before Thanksgiving, I'd have said that they were crazy. Hmmm, funny how things work out. Here's a photo of this last afghan, and also one of the scarf that I finished.
I'm already thinking of things that I could have or should have made, but well, there's always next year. Now I need to focus on finishing up my wrapping, addressing envelopes, etc. Tonight, I will take the turkey out of the freezer, and put it in the fridge to start thawing. I'm hoping to cook it over the weekend.
Well, now I think I'll have me a second cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
