Good morning. It's another glorious Spring day here in my little part of New England. I actually got to shut the heat off yesterday. But then I forgot to put it back on when I went to bed. Around 3 a.m. I woke up feeling a bit of a nip in the air and turned the heat back on. In a few hours, I'll shut it off again.
We have no errands to do today, but I think Pogo and I will go out for a while anyway, just to enjoy the warm sunshine. Tomorrow will be a rainy, stay indoors day. Maybe later today we can take a ride to a local Salvation Army store and unload some boxes from my car. Sad to say, the thrift stores are disappearing from our area. I stumbled upon this Salvation Army store quite by accident a few days ago.
Now that the good weather is finally on its way back, I want to try to clean out my computer room. I stopped using it so much a while back when it had to become a temporary catch-all. Unfortunately, these temporary catch-alls seem to become permanent after a while. Now I want to empty the room out and redecorate it. Maybe even re-furnish it. Hmmm, we'll see.
I finished the shrug that I was making, all except for the fringe. However, it will only fit a small framed person. I will have to make some adjustments to the pattern if I make another one. I did get out some new yarn, but then couldn't make up my mind which project to start. So I picked up the Merlot afghan and put a few more rows on it.
I still have to make another blue afghan (for Christmas), and I'm thinking that I might use a variegated red and white yarn as the offset color for it. It's for a little guy (a great grandson) so I think these colors will be perfect.
Today I have some photos showing how some of the ponds at the park are still frozen. One of the big ponds is mostly thawed, but there is still a lot of ice. These two photos show the large areas that are still frozen.
In this next photo, you can see where the ice is beginning to thaw close to the shore. (In this one area) Maybe after a week of warm temperatures all the ice will be gone. It will be good to see all our water birds back again.
That's about all the news for this morning. Now I think I'll make a hot cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. Until tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
