My 24, 2015
Good afternoon. I really was up earlier today, but after feeding Pogo, I crawled back under my covers and got some much needed sleep. The past two days have not been very good for me, so I stayed in bed a lot. I just was not feeling very good. Friday, I did call to make an appointment with my doctor (for next Tuesday).
Today though, seems to be much better so far. I slept a few hours during the night, woke up to do a bit of crocheting, and then back to sleep until it was time to tend to Pogo. As for the crocheting, I finished the Pink Camo lapghan, and a new one - Perfect Pink. I finally have a few rows done on a (blue) one, Light Periwinkle.
I found a gorgeous patriotic rose on the web, and borrowed it to share with you. It's perfect for this weekend. A weekend we have set aside for remembering all those men and women who bravely gave their lives so that we may enjoy our freedom.
Remember that challenge I posted on Friday? The one about waving our beautiful flag everywhere? I surely do hope that all of you are proudly waving your American flag. She's a magnificent sight, waving about freely in the breeze.
Many of you will be able to attend your local Memorial Day parade. I read in our newspaper that some towns might be considering not holding the parade because of small crowd turnouts. That's a shame. Folks, if your town or city is having a parade, do make an effort to go and watch it. The men and women marching in the parade need to know that you support this wonderful country and the lives that our freedom has cost.
A friend sent me some wonderful ideas, and I thought this one would be great for all those picnics and barbeques everyone will be having this weekend. Use cupcake papers to cover drinks glasses, to prevent flies and other bugs from dropping in. Enjoy!!
Well, that's it for today. I'm going to see if I can accomplish a few small things around here before I run out of steam. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
