Good morning. The sun is shining and there is a beautiful little breeze. It's a great day for cleaning up the yard. SIL Eddie and a friend are here doing just that. It's simply amazing the piles of junk and dead leaves and branches that seem to pile up over the winter.
Today I'm a bit better. The shakies and the sick to the stomach part are still here, but the rest is beginning to heal. At least I think it is. I was going to call my doctor yesterday to give him an update, but I forgot. Today is his day off, so I'll wait till Monday to call him. Hopefully, by then I'll feel even better.
I've been working on a Perfect Pink lapghan, and it is more than half done. My new yarn order arrived yesterday, so I'm thinking that the next lapghan will be a shade of blue. Even though I love working with all the beautiful colors, I have to remind myself every now and then that not everyone with a wheel chair is a lady. Therefore, I need to include all the "guy" colors too.
Right now, I'm having a bout of sneezing. So, let's get right to the images that I'm going to share today. My friend Mat sent this image to me, along with a link to the source. The lady who makes these sells them, so the pattern is not available. But aren't they beautiful? Thanks Mat, for sharing.
Next, I want to share a new product that I found on QVC's shopping channel. Have you ever heard of a spurtle? How about a whole set of spurtles? It's amazing how many different products are re-invented over and over, and yet someone still manages to market and sell them. Here's a photo of the Spurtles as they were displayed on the TV. (They work like spoons and spatulas.)
This is Memorial Day Weekend so whatever you are doing to celebrate, be safe. Wave that beautiful flag, and appreciate all that has been given so that we may enjoy our freedom. I borrowed this image from the web, and I hope everyone will take up the challenge and show our beautiful flag everywhere.
Now I think I'll take my leave. The sneezing is getting to me. So, till Sunday, Y'all be safe and have a magnificent weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
