Good morning. Gosh, I tried really hard to sleep in late this morning, but it didn't work out that way. First Pogo went potty, then wanted to be picked up and put on the sofa (the regular one). So I did this and settled back down under my covers. But my eyes were not closing. Oh dear, I may as well get up.
It's probably just as well though. Today is going to be a gorgeous Spring day with temps almost to 70F degrees. Oh my, I can dig it!! Maybe today we can take a walk around the whole yard to see what's coming up on the other side of the house. Most of the snow is gone, and after the warm temps this week, it should all be gone.
Last evening I worked on the shrug and finished it. Well, at least the main portion of it is finished. I still have to edge around the armholes and make the fringe. Then I will have to try it on someone to see what size it is. I may try making another one once I see who this one might fit.
Today I have photos of my new pansy that DIL Janet gave me. The colors are just beautiful. Aren't these pretty?
It's too early to plant these outside yet, but during the day, I do put them out on my steps to soak up the warm sunshine. Then, of course, I bring them back in just before sundown.
I found an interesting item in one of my catalogues that I thought I might share. It's something to keep in the bathroom that will keep folks occupied while they are sitting on the throne. It's called a musical potty piano bath mat. You just tap out music with your toes. It even comes with a mini music book guide.
On a more serious note, I borrowed this next image from one of my kid's web pages. It's a sad reminder as to just how much we have lost or given up over the years. Children stopped pledging allegiance to the flag in our schools because some folks said they were offended by it. To that statement, I say: "If you are offended by this, then find some other country to live in."
I've often wondered why some folks move to this great country of ours. Most often I've heard it said that they came here to start a new life filled with hope and the promise of a better life. If that's so, then why is it that so many of them are dong their best to destroy all of our traditions and beliefs? If they are not happy with the "good life" here, then they should go somewhere else where they could be happier.
Ah well, I think it's time for a fresh cup of coffee and maybe get a load of laundry started. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
